How I created the 50 million selling game Jenga – by Leslie Scott

Leslie Scott, Jenga inventorLeslie Scott created one the world’s favourite games, Jenga, so I was delighted when she agreed to be interviewed for my book Screw Work, Let’s Play.

Here, she explains how she turned her baby brother’s playing bricks into the world’s second biggest selling game (topped only by Monopoly). She also explains how she kept going through debt and visits from the repo man, the moment she knew the game was going to be big, and what ‘Jenga’ actually means!
