Daily Trivia: 11/26/12

Question: What toy made by OddzOn Products was a colorful rubber ball composed of about 5,000 rubber strands?

Last Question: What game featured 54 wooden blocks and has a name derived from the Swahili word for “to build”?

Answer: Jenga

Jenga is a game where players take turns removing a wooden block from the middle of a tower, and placing it somewhere on top, without the whole tower falling down. The game was invented by Leslie Scott. She was a British national, but was born in East Africa, where she was raised speaking English and Swahili.
In 1985, Jenga began to be distributed in the U.S. and Canada, and became a big hit.

And be honest, have any of you gotten aggravated, and give the tower an extra push when you saw that it was going to fall down?
