Giant Jenga

Introduction: Giant Jenga

About: Thanks for Viewing

I thought giant jenga would be a fun game to make. I turned this giant jenga into drinking jenga. This project is fairly easy to make. You only need a few tools to complete this project. People make these in many different giant sizes.

Step 1: Tools and Supplies

Tools
tape measure
table saw
pencil
finishing sander
marker

Have the right tool makes all the difference

Supplies
2 x 4's
2ft by 2ft flat board
carring bag

Step 2: Cut and Sand

These giant jengas can be made in all different sizes the size I choose to go with works good with being giant but also fits in a big duffle bag for transportation. These are to a ft long by three inches. I used a table saw to cut the pieces and a finishing sander to sand ever side of every piece so that they slide in and out good when playing.

Step 3: Stack and Play

I used a flat board for a base to set the jenga on when you don't have a flat service to play on. This jenga set fits in a big duffle for transporting. Using a crate is also another good way to transport. Great as wedding, house warming, any type of gift.

    I have increased the number of blocks to 60, I know. Looking for ideas for the container to transport, rack and stack them. Using 2x3s, total weight: 30lbs. Height: 30In.

    Let me know your ideas.

    Great Game. I found that sanding them very smooth helps with making them slide out of the middle better. A great tailgating or backyard game!

    I have all of the wood cut and 35 pieces sanded. I set up the 35 I have done and it seems the middle pieces are REALLY hard to remove to play. Any suggestions?

    We love this giant jenga game at our BBQ's and house parities... It's just such a great game. I tried making one, but i'm not a tool pro so my wife kept on asking me to just order one so I did. I think it was from a company called tumbling towers. Free shipping so its all good. I'm going to try and make more blocks though since I want it even taller. This is an awesome game!
