Introduction: Cottage Jumbo Jenga

About: I'm just a fancy mustache wearing, woodworking, wine and scotch tasting, creative thinking type of guy.

This is a great game that's perfect for outside, or at the cottage. It's also a good way to use up any left over 2x4's that are laying around.

It took us about 20 minutes to cut the wood, which will lead to hours of fun.

Please remember be safe and wear eye protection when cutting wood.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

- 4 1/2, 12' 2x4s
- pencil
- saw (hand or circular)
- plywood (optional)

We used a circular saw because it cuts faster, but a hand saw will due just fine.

Step 2: Measure and Cut

You will want to cut your wood into 57, 10 1/2" pieces.

This will allow three pieces to be side by side in alternating rows.

We started to stack the wood after cutting it so it would be ready right away for our first game. It helps to keep the area organized, as you go along.

If needed, use a plywood base so it will be flat when setting up your game.

Step 3: Start Playjng

Now that everything is ready, you can stack your jumbo Jenga blocks.

The rules:

Set up all 57 blocks, lay three side by side on top of your plywood base. Lay three more on top at 90 degrees to the ones below and repeat.

Each person removes one block at a time and places it on top at 90 degrees to the row on top.

You can only touch the piece that you are removing.
