If this is online, and can be bought on the downloadable games thing they're going to reveal for Wii, then it could be a neat idea.

If it is a downloadable game, then it maybe makes sense. Otherwise, God help us all. Even then throw in some Hungry Hungry Hippos and Operation. Maybe that game with the marbles and the toothpicks. Don't Break the Ice, and Don't Spill the Beans are other classics from this genre of games.

wtf?

Seriously . . . WTF?!?!?

Isn't it cheaper, better, and more real to use real wooden blocks than to create some elaborate virtual representation of wooden blocks?

$10.99 for the real thing or $49.99 for virtual representation. WTF?!?!?!

Please tell me this is a joke.

Considering that the OP suggests that they appear to be licencing the name Jenga from Hasbro there is very little chance of this not being a retail release. Though to be fair it may be part of a larger compilation of licenced HASBRO games.

My first thought was that this could be good fun it they utilised HAVOC Physics and had a Burnout style slo-mo collapse of all the blocks, but are they really going to bother with any of that for the Wii?

You do know that a lot of people prefer their virtual life than their actual real life :lol
In fact, i'm sad for them :( there's a lot of people concerned in GAF IMO

At least we can't say that it's a non-game :lol

I definitely would be best as an online game for sure, I can only imagine how frustrating this could be.

i don't see how this will work considering how the flaky the wiimote is sometimes. unless they allow for a lot of movement, this game could be a disaster.

I suppose you'd just try to move the Wiimote backward as smoothly and evenly as possible, cut come on, this is stupid. Why not just buy the actual thing. Unless it's online, so that you could play Jenga with people not in the same room, it's pointless. Why you would want to play Jenga online is beyond me though.

Well, the same can be said about UNO..and it still rocks.
At the moment we don't know the price..so is hard to tell...

And unless they add some serious stuff to it or make it part of a compilation of board games, I doubt they are going to charge $49.99.

So yeah, is probably part of the 'Wii Wares' download program whatever it is..

You know what would be badass?!?

You buy like 40 ~ 50 Wiimotes, and then stack them like you stack the Jenga blocks, and as you remove each Wiimote from the stack, in real time the fully rendered, light-shaded, bump-mapped 3D virtual blocks on the screen remove themself from the stack in the exact same way!

Not to mention the physics of the real thing, I doubt the Wii has enough power to truly mimic real life Jenga.

Maybe it could offer a different gameplay with non-realistic rules, like... blocks that could vanish ? or stick to each other ? maybe a combo system like in some tetris-likes...
Anyway it's only interesting if the video game allows you to do things impossible in real life.
