I don't know why, but every single one of my friends is a Jenga fanatic. We've all got at least one game in our house. Some have colorful Jengas, some have truth-or-dare versions, and some even have a "Sloppy Drunk Jenga" game that they made themselves. So maybe it's the fact that I'm used to seeing Jenga games perched atop the dining room table as a centerpiece that makes me think that this Donkey-Kong inspired game of Jenga is something that should be artfully displayed in every techie's home.

This version has a little variation in the standard remove-the-bricks-until-the-tower-falls-down gameplay. You still remove bricks on each turn, but you also move your Mario piece up the tower to save the Princess from DK.

Amazon.com was taking pre-orders ($24.99) earlier for Collectors Edition Donkey Kong Jenga, but they say they're out of stock right now. Too bad. We really wanted this to match our dining room Donkey Kong wall vinyls (kidding.... kinda).
