    I would be tempted to add disclaimers printed on them.

    "This is not a weapon"

    "2X4 don't hurt people, people hurt people."

    "Being a sore looser does not help your Facebook image."

    "I told you it wasn't this one."

    "If you throw it you have to fetch it"

    Beware of earthquakes.

    My DIY experience is that 2 x 4 pieces sand much quicker before cutting into the shorter pieces. After cutting the sanded 2 x 4's to length, you have to go back and finish the ends, but there really isn't any extra sanding than what you do otherwise.

    Thanks, I was originally just going to sand them and call em done. But there was just too much friction to get them to play correctly the paste wax seemed to be the perfect solution. Now the blocks slide like I did when I was a wee younging down the hallway in my socks.

    Brilliant idea, thank you!

    Thank you sir. My son loves Jenga and I saw a set tailgating so I knew I had to make a set for our house.
