Jenga 46 layers, Wagner Brothers, Buffalo Grove, IL Jenga Record at the grill

Yard Games at the Gibraltar Grill are back. 

Cornhole #1 Cornhole at the grill


The name jenga is derived from a Swahili word meaning "build". A game of physical and mental skill. During the game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then balanced on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller but less stable structure.

Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks. Each block is three times as long as its width, and one fifth as thick as its length. Moving in Jenga consists of taking one and only one block from any level (except the one below the incomplete top level) of the tower, and placing it on the topmost level to complete it. The game ends when the tower falls and the winner is the last person to successfully remove and place a block.

The current record is 46 levels held by the Wagner brothers from Buffalo Grove, IL. Anyone who exceeds their record and has a picture to prove it will get a free desert.


It has been said that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century, and then was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky over 100 years ago.

The truth is, who really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!

Cornhole is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the cornhole platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.
