Our very first product at Big Game Hunters was the Hi-Tower, and in the last fifteen years we have sold over 100,000 units of the Giant Tumble Tower games.
This game just makes a party go off with a bang (or a crash as the towers fall over!) The garden jenga game entertains both young and old all day long. One of our giant jenga games will last for years and prove to be a hit year after year.
Since our very first giant tumble towers, we have expanded our range and now sell other garden games such as Croquet Sets which range from simple family sets up to professional wooden sets in solid wood boxes.
Keeping in theme with Giant Garden Jenga, another giant game which is extremely popular now is Giant Connect 4. This garden jenga game is specifically for two players, and can become quite addictive!
The game is based on the very popular game of Jenga, the aim of the garden jenga game is to slowly remove one block at a time and stack this on top of the tower making the tower taller, the tower will continue to increase in height until the tower becomes unsteady and falls over. The person who pulls the last block before it falls or as its falling is the loser, and usually then restacks the tower for the next game. The giant tumble tower which provides the quickest game is the Mega Hi Tower building to a maximum of approximately 1.5 metres.
The name Jenga comes from the Swahili word meaning "To Build" which was Leslie Scotts' invention when she grew up In Ghana, East Africa. Leslie used off-cut blocks from the saw mills to create her game. She replicated this when she had to travel through Africa finishing off her education until she finally settled in England where she marketed her childhood game she invented and so started the life of Jenga. Hasbro now manufacture her childhood favourite and she won 2010 Wonder Woman of Toys Inventor/Designer Award. We have designed our giant tumble towers to live in line with Leslie's dream but have given it a new, larger than life, spin on the game.
There is a range of Giant Jenga Accessories and Spares available, so you no longer need to worry if you lose a block, or require a carry bag to make your game easier to transport.
At Big Game Hunters, wooden garden games are a particular favourite of ours, and we have traditional games like Wooden Skittles which can bring family and friends together in the same way Giant Jenga does.
