“Jenga is the most depressing game. There are no winners. Just one loser who fucks everything up”

Jenga is a game where players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower of 54 blocks. If the tower collapses, that player “loses” and the other players “win.” However, many argue that Jenga is really a team sport, and that everyone loses when the tower collapses. Others argue that, according to official rules, there is one loser (the player who caused the tower to fall down) and one winner (the player who had a turn right before this).

Wikipedia: Jenga
Jenga is a game of physical skill created by British board game designer and author Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Hasbro. Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively more unstable structure.

Also, I have attuned myself to the natural vibrations of the earth goddess.  We are going camping.

The rules of Jenga say that if the tower falls, everyone loses.

Jenga is a team sport. If you achieve jenga, you all win. If it falls, that person let everyone down.

There are no winners in Jenga. The whole point of the game is to identify a single loser.
Unless you play with only two people, I guess.

According to the rules, the winner is the last person who went before the next person caused it to fall down. Once I learned that, I always chose to sit next to the person most likely to cause the fall.

Most board games have one winner and multiple losers. Jenga has one loser and multiple winners.

We really liked to single out the losers in our house growing up.
