Reverse Jenga

This is simple version in Reverse Jenga you arrange the bricks in the same log-home pattern. But this time instead of making the tower rise you aim at shrinking it. You take bricks from the top and insert it into tower in the lower part. You might find this reverse Jenga thing silly but you have no idea. Rules are the same to use only one hand.

You have to challenge you opponent to make the same pattern shrinking the tower. The one who does it with fewer errors and in less time wins.


Start with making a solid base. Use three blocks for this purpose. You can further reinforce the structure making use of other three blocks in other direction. Then you can go on to remove the middle block to achieve a perfect gap. Repeat the steps and you are good to go.

Vertical Jenga

Vertical Jenga tower building might raise some eye brows but you can very much enjoy playing this game. It is played as the classic version of the game but the difference is you have to remove the block of your choice and restack on the top. You have to make the same stacking pattern. Now challenge your competitor to stack up 3 more levels with same pattern on top of it.


Make 5 blocks deep and 3 blocks across vertical pattern using bricks. Start building the same pattern again but rotate it 90 degrees, this will balance the tower more. However do not try to remove the bricks from the outer side as it will misbalance the tower. Always remove blocks from middle.
