little shop of… : big jenga

Remember Jenga? 54 wooden blocks stacked in rows of 3′s on top of each other. Pull out a block with only one hand on the tower at a time and place the block on top to create one giant, unstable tower? Of course you remember. I wish I could tell you I came up with this idea all on my own. But I didn’t. Last Saturday for Cinco de Derby, (that’s Mexican Food, Mint Juleps and Derby hats for the layman) our friends Kellie and Kyle created Big Jenga out of 2×4′s. This was so much fun to play. And is a great DIY game you could create for some outdoor fun this summer. Leave it to the creators of Cinco de Derby to invent Big Jenga.

Each 2×4 is 12″ long 10 1/2″ long. There are 54 of them. Enjoy your weekend friends! I’m off to build my own Big Jenga.

    hey Casey, good meeting you at Cinco. But before you cut all those 2×4′s, make sure you cut them to 10-1/2″, not 12″!

    The least expensive place I could find to buy this game was Ebay and Etsy. If you search Giant Huge Jenga it will show up. I think it was $50-$55. We love playing this game at tailgate parties and we add drinking rules to each block to make the game more exciting for adults.

    We actually make these at The trick is to sand, sand, and sand. Start with 60 grit, then 80, and finish with 120. Also take the time to pick good 2×4 at the store. Sometimes we will spend 30 minutes looking for good wood.
