Hey everyone! Today I'm here to bring you a quick tutorial on how to build a really fun game to play during any season! So weather it's nice outside and you're looking for a great game to play out in the yard with friends and family, or something to liven up the party on a rainy day-- Giant Jenga.
ahem... I mean--
Skill Level- Intermediate
Under-Over Rating- Under $30/ Over 1 hr.
Tools and Materials
4- 2x4x16 (makes 72 pieces)
Step 1: Using a saw, cut 72 pieces to 10.5" exactly. It's key that you keep them all the same size, or else you will end up with one crooked tower.
Step 2: After you have your planks cut, sand down the edges so that you remove any splinters. You can also take this time to buff the edges as well if you really want to make it look nice.
Step 3: Line up your planks in rows of 3 just like you see below and then start on your next row, position the planks in the opposite direction from the ones below. Keep stacking them up as you go!
We got ours to be about as big as me! Yes, we call the game Giant Jaynga here in our Chicago office. Feel free to use that when playing, I'd be delighted!
It's a game of skill and patience, so be sure to take your time!
We decided to play a round here on a really rainy day, and it made for great fun! Just be careful how many you pull off the tower though!

I am not really that handy and dont have tools lying around the house to make one. I found one online that was great. They called it a Tumbling Tower. I just googled it and found it. Shipping was pretty fast too. It is the life of every party at my apartment. Great idea and thanks for sharing!
