That's actually very cool. I've been trying to get a VB Dark Lord but either haven't scored a "golden" Golden Ticket or they were out of it by the time I got thru the line (like this year). Nice.

Actually, that's essentially what they did to build it. Fifty four blocks, each 10.5" in length (to make it square). They essentially mitred the edges a touch, and used a sander to smooth out the sides.

They use an old milk crate as a base, and fashioned some adjustable feet (screw in's) to level out the game. A level is helpful.

House rules are that you can touch any blocks you want, but if you move anything, you're committed to that block. It's not as precise a game as regular Jenga, but that's a plus because it works great if you've been drinking, and is a great group/team game as well.
