Play Jenga

Jenga is a game in which players take turns removing a block from a tower and balancing it on top of the tower, creating a taller and increasingly less stable structure.  The game ends when the tower falls.  This game is quick and easy to set up, requires very little memory ability beyond whose turn it is, and is fast paced, keeping participants from getting bored.  It can be made easier by not using all the blocks, making the resulting tower shorter and quicker to rebuild between games, not to mention more stable during the game.

  1. We played this with Gramps and he was surprisingly good. It is odd to see the skills that remain strong while others are lost. It was a fun game with lots of laughing as the towers fell!
