Jenga is a game of physical and mental skills created by Leslie Scott in 1983. Leslie Scott was born in South Africa before moving moving to Ghana. She was raised speaking English and Swahili and the word Jenga means to build in Swahili.

During the game, players take turn to remove a block from a tower and balance it on top, creating a taller and increasingly unstable structure as the game progress. The game is made of 54 wooden blocks. In the classic version, the blocks are 1.5 * 2.5 * 7.5 cm and the tallest tower ever build was 40 2/3 levels, which made it 60 cm high.

Now, the blocks we have here at CAT are 4 * 8.5 * 26.5 cm so a 40 storey tower would be 1.60 meters tall. How high do you think you can build?
