From Sci-Fi Toppling Games to Educational Building Blocks

In honor of the Jenga-playing cat named Moe, who has stolen the hearts of many, a compilation of Jenga game variations has been put together. The video, which was posted by owner Alan Palesko, has already garnered over six million views. Imagine how many more would have watched the viral video if it had involved Jenga Boom, which adds an unexpected explosion throughout the game, or even a robotic player in place of a human one.

These Jenga game variations show just how beloved the building block game is. A test of small motor skills, patience and strategy, it has been re-imagined as an educational tool for children as well as gifts for geeks and more.
