Last month we went to the Georgetown Carnival here in Seattle. There was a giant community Jenga game set up and I managed to be there to watch it fall twice.

That is so awesome. There should be more giant childhood games. Like Pick-up Sticks with giant logs, and you have to use heavy machinery to pick them up! Or Guess Who with real live people!

Gasp! Giant jenga! Be still my heart. Where can I get me one of those?

Ah, the continuous shooting mode was made for that situation! Great photos. :) How fun would it be to play giant Jenga at a backyard BBQ?

I was just thinking of bringing Jenga up for my 6 yo grandson to play. Love the giant one!

This isn’t actually the first time I’ve encountered a giant Jenga. The first time was at a bar in Portland called Triple Nickel Pub. That one was smaller but made of pieces cut from 2x6s (I think) so when it fell it was loud!

I made it to the Georgetown Carnival for the first time this year… by far the best event I have been to in Seattle. So many fun and unique things to see paired with great food to eat!

oh oh oh i want one. this would be perfect to have at our church Bazaar in september. was it made out of wood? Seems like you could almost do it with cardboard boxes if you weighted them with something.
More info please!

Aw man, that’s way bigger than the one here in Houston! Although, ours has perks- dirty words and lingos hand-written all over each block ;)

There is a great selection of custom sets on this site: http://www.TumblingTowers.com, they have free shipping and they’re great for any party or event. Its perfect if you rather spend the time playing then making one. The sets aren’t nearly as big as this one, but still pretty nice and large.
