Best Giant Jenga Sets
Bigger is better. Giant Jenga is no exception to this mantra. Whether played on the lawn or on that rickety table in the garage, this ingenious yard and pub game will become a friends and family favorite. Were it not for the merits of the first eight best yard games on out list, Giant Jenga could make a run at the top three.
With the right set, complete with smooth blocks and perfect dimensions, this game hits all the marks for fun, strategy, and replay-ability. There is only a loser in games with more than two people, a feature rarely found in recreational games. Tis this resistance to the agony of defeat that provides the excitement.
Players take turns removing blocks from the wooden tower, and placing them back atop the pile. The first to make the tower tumble loses. A steady hand is key, and most often quick pulls grant the best results. We’ve seen this great game pop up at our favorite local beer gardens, and we’re huge fans. While the sheer size and weight of the game is daunting, those willing to put forth the effort to transport and assemble will be rewarded with jubilation and the good kind of heartbreak alike.

Holy Giant Jenga! What a cool game set this is. Splinter Woodworking sees your average 54 block set and raises you to 60! This is from the makers themselves - "Sustainably sourced from genuine kiln dried New Zealand Pine. Blocks and crate have meticulously rounded edges with an extra smooth finish. Lifetime Warranty covers splitting, cracking, twisting, and warping." So nice. Rather than a tote bag, you get a hand made wooden crate that doubles as the playing table. Yup. It's our #1 set for so many good reasons. Go get it.
Known for their camping gear, legit Sports enters the Giant Size yard game arena and comes out victorious. This set is fantastic. Life time warranty, and smooth blocks are just a few highlights of the giant tumbling timbers. The carrying case is sturdy and for some awesome reason has an inquisitive looking sloth on it; the Legit sports logo. The blocks are made from genuine New Zealand hardwood, so that's pretty fancy and a neat conversation piece. I bet Dave down the block doesn't have New Zealand hardwood. Anyway - great looking with a smooth finish.
The O.G. Jenga game, but much much much bigger. The classic Jenga Orange tote bag and logo blocks make this Giant Jenga Set a masterpiece. Includes Jenga sports tournament charts for competitive play; and believe us, there will be competitive play. As per usual, there are 54 pieces and can stack to over 4 feet tall while being played. We recommend this set for family games days and nights, birthday parties and random Tuesday night hangs. Basically any time, anywhere.
PBX brands are made in America, come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and have a lifetime warranty. What we like about the PBX is the nifty dry-erase rules board. 27 blocks come numbered to make your own optional party rules. Party on, Garth. These blocks are slightly smaller than some of the others on our top 5 list, but don't let that scare you away. The smaller the blocks, the lighter the carrying case will be to tote around. Each of the giant blocks are natural pine wood for a smooth feel and easy sliding. Party on, Wayne.
Yeah, that's a big wooden die that comes with this cool Giant tumble tower block set. The price is just right with this Juegol game at only $49.99, and that includes the fore mentioned die. You can incorporate the die into the game by rolling to see how many blocks you must remove! Whoa. The slightly smaller size of these blocks 6" x 2" x 1" allows for a great table top match. Tote bag - check. Free shipping - check. Classic pinewood - check. This block game makes for the perfect gift for all ages and occasions.
Giant Jenga spawned from the classic table game. We also highlight a great variation of this in our Jenga Party game article. The bigger, better, badder version simply supersizes it. Everything is gigantic, the blocks, the tension, and of course the collapse. We here at www.yardandpubgames.com play this game mostly indoors on a well buffered table in the garage. The matches are fraught with heckling, pull shaming and towers stacked six feet tall. We have fun. You will too. We’ve learned a few things over the course of hundreds of games, and we’re self proclaimed experts. Now we share our expertise with y’all. Top tips for crushing your opponents:
- Don’t be afraid to take your time. Survey the tower, look for opportunities not only for your move, but also to comprimise the next players chances.
- Commit to the block you’ve chosen. Fans of physics know that the speed in which a block is removed from the tower directly affects the friction ratio and subsequently the towers stability.
- Stand clear of the tower when it’s not your turn. As the tower grows in heigth, the structural integrity is more and more compromised. Don’t be that guy/gal who accidentally bumps the table or area around the tower.
- Always be mindful of the weight distribution of the tower.
- Despite the momentum and exuberance of successfully pulling a block, be very careful and sure handed when replacing the block up top.
Giant Jenga is a self contained great game, there are no accessories available nor needed. Should you choose to incorporate party jenga into the mix, all you need is a pencil and creativity. In summation, this yard and pub game stacks up the fun.
