Hoverkraft is a construction game that's like Jenga taken to the next level. The stacking game involves piling small building block pieces atop one another, but the twist is that is involves a levitating platform.

Magnets are used to keep the platforms apart from one another, adding an extra challenge to the construction game. The 24 translucent blocks of the game vary in shape, including an assortment of pyramids corner tetracubes, L-shaped blocks, as well as straight pieces that should all be used to complete a castle structure.

The game is extremely compact in size, yet is suited to groups of up to eight players. Despite these new elements, the rules are fairly simple to follow: "the last player to place a block without causing the platform to tumble wins."
