Suspend - Abstract Jenga
If Jenga is Kermit, Suspend is Animal. If Jenga is Taylor Swift, Suspend is Bjork. If Jenga is an apple, Suspend is this apple. I think you get the drift. Suspend is a Jenga-like balancing game that takes the straightforward pulling and stacking of bricks and turns it, not so much on its head as all askew. Players take turns using a single hand to add one of 24 notched, rubber-tipped wire pieces of varying lengths to a tabletop stand. Each new piece shifts the shape and balance of the structure, increasing the difficulty the next player will face adding a piece without toppling it.
Suspend has options for beginner, intermediate, and expert playing levels, so is suitable for kids 8 and up, and adults of all ages. Regardless of level, up to 4 players can compete, with all using just one hand to hang and balance their rods. If they touch any of the other suspended pieces during a turn with the free hand, the turn is forfeited. If players cause other pieces to fall, those pieces return with them to their pile. The first player to use up all of his/her pieces is the winner.
