Build a wood tower and learn about the structure, functioning and values of the EU.
Young people and adults alike are often embarrassed when asked about the EU. But a large game of Jenga â€“ a tower of wood blocks to be built and re-arranged â€“ is a game that everyone loves to play. The game we have developed is a combination of a wood block tower and a card-based quiz, where the EU is at the heart of the issues. We tested this game as a fun way of learning with young adults and seniors as well.

How does it make the EU more tangible?
People playing the Power Tower game start thinking about core facts of the European Union. The facts as such may seem â€śdryâ€ť and â€śboringâ€ť as such, but the setting, with a group of people seated around a table, and juggling with the wooden bars to transform and grow the tower, is a pleasant experience. People start to discuss the questions asked on the cards and thus get a positive â€śEuropeanâ€ť experience.
