This is a list of variants or other versions of Jenga:

Throw 'n Go Jenga[]

"Throw 'n Go Jenga" is a variant originally marketed by Hasbro and is currently being produced and marketed by Winning Moves. The game consists of blocks that are colored red, blue, or yellow plus a six-sided die. Before each move, the player throws the die, and then follows the instructions on the die:

  • Yellow/End: Remove any yellow block or remove any color end block.
  • Red/Mid: Remove any red block or remove any color middle block.
  • Blue/End: Remove any blue block or remove any color end block.
  • Any two: Remove any two blocks of any color in any position.
  • Wild: Remove any color block in any position.
  • Reverse: Do not remove any blocks, but pass the die to the next player in the opposite direction. Other than the fact that the die determines the proper move, play continues the same as regular Jenga.

Jenga Truth Or Dare Tower[]

"Jenga Truth Or Dare Tower" is an adult variation of Jenga also marketed by Hasbro. This version looks like regular Jenga except there are three colors of blocks, red, green, and natural, instead of just the natural color of Jenga. Play is the same, but if a player moves a red block on that play, the player must complete the dare printed on it before stacking the block on top. A player who moves a green block must truthfully answer the question printed on the block before stacking it. The natural blocks have nothing printed on them and are played as in Jenga. However, it is permissible to write a player's own truths or dares on the natural blocks if desired.

Jenga Xtreme[]

"Jenga Xtreme" uses parallelogram-shaped blocks that can create some interesting leaning towers.

Casino Jenga: Las Vegas Edition[]

"Casino Jenga: Las Vegas Edition" employs a roulette-style game play, featuring a felt game board, betting chips, and additional rules.

Jenga XXL and Jenga Giant[]

"Jenga XXL and Jenga Giant" are licensed giant Jenga games manufactured and distributed by Art's Ideas. Jenga Giant can reach 3 feet (90 cm) or higher in play. Jenga XXL starts at over 4 feet (1.2 m) high and can reach 8 feet (2.4 m) or higher in play. Rules are the same as in classic Jenga, except players can use two hands to move the eighteen-inch long blocks.

Collector's editions[]

In addition, there have been a number of collector edition Jenga games, featuring the colors and logos of the Boston Red Sox, Oakland Raiders, New York Yankees, and John Deere, among others. Hello Kitty Jenga, Transformers Jenga, Tarzan Jenga, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Jenga, and Donkey Kong Jenga are some of the licensed variations of Jenga.
