How Jenga is played: benefits for the mind

If you still don't know how to play Jenga, you've come to the right place. And, if you already know how to play it, you are probably wondering how a game with such simple operation can have so many benefits for the mind. We tell you everything.

What is the game of Jenga

Jenga is a game made up of fifty-four wooden blocks of the same size. It is a basic and simple game, recommended ages six and up, playable as a family and providing hours of fun while bringing huge benefits to all players. There are versions in other materials, such as plastic, but without a doubt our favorite is wooden Jenga, because it brings that added charm that wooden games have.

How to play wooden Jenga

The Jenga game has a very simple operation. It involves stacking all the wooden blocks, following the indicated layout, and then each player, in turn, must remove blocks (one per turn) without the tower falling. To create the starting tower in an easy and comfortable way, the game box itself is of great help; If you keep the pieces in the correct position, you will only have to turn it over and unmold the game as if it were a flan.

How a game of wooden towers helps our mind

It's hard to believe that a simple wooden tower game can have multiple benefits, but you'll be surprised how much you can do with Jenga:< /p>

Spatial perception and fine motor skills

This benefit is mainly for the little ones. It helps them to develop their perception and spatial intelligence and to develop their fine motor skills... You have to handle it very carefully so that the tower doesn't collapse!

Develop patience

This benefit is fundamental for the little ones, but it is valid for all ages (the older ones are sometimes not an example of patience either). Slow movements and studied decisions (both your own and those of others) can test the patience of the most painted.

Stimulates concentration

If you want to be successful on your turn, concentration is going to be key. If you intend to remove a block of wood and you are not giving it your full attention, we predict the most resounding failure.

Stimulates the capacity for logical analysis

In this game you need to make many decisions and assess the possible consequences of these. Each participant will have to analyze the possible movements and assess the best option for him.

Social interaction

Like any family board game, it is an excellent means of social interaction, both with family and friends.

Now that you know how to play Jenga, if you don't have one at home, you're missing out... Hours of fun, benefits for intellectual development and a test of patience for all ages. If you want to have a good time and test your nerves of steel, don't hesitate, Jenga is the solution you were looking for.
