Possibly you have played the odd game of Jenga. The famous board game Blocks of Way offers us a very entertaining challenge in which we will have to demonstrate our best pulse in order to pass the turn to another player. But for some, Jenga goes much further, such as this incredible demonstration of extreme balance.
A record in balance
Tai Star Vallanti is considered a Jenga Master, and there are reasons to confirm it, and that is that this Arizona resident has created the largest Jenga block tower in the world. Most likely, you are thinking that creating a tower of blocks is not a particularly complicated task, however, the feat has its complication, and that is that the entire structure is supported by a single piece placed vertically.
The result is an inverted pyramidal structure that distributes its weight at the millimeter level in order to gather a total of 485 pieces in total , making it the largest structure ever created in balance. As if that were not enough, its creator takes the license to drop the last piece with a certain height, something that could have knocked down the entire creation in a matter of milliseconds, something that, luckily, did not happen.
A record with a history
The most surprising thing is that Vallanti had previously achieved a previous world record with a construction of 353 blocks, so this is nothing more than a brand that serves to surpass itself, waiting for someone to be able to overcome it. somehow.
After achieving this, his son had the pleasure of tearing down the construction that was recorded for history with the video that he has posted on the internet, a recording that has earned him the Guinness World Record certification.
What is the tallest Jenga tower in the world?
Seeing the work of Vallanti, it has surely crossed your mind to retrieve your Jenga from the forgotten toy drawer and probe the balance with the blocks. But you should know that, in addition to needing several extra boxes to be able to assemble the structure, if you want to exceed the record for the highest number of floors, you will have to reach the 40-story and 2/3 figure reached by Robert Grebler in 1985. This A curious fact can be found in the game manual, so if you are a Jenga player you probably knew it for a long time.
The question is, how many blocks are you able to stack? How many floors do you reach with your construction?
