When all the blocks were sprayed, apply Polyurethane to seal the blocks.

Let all your blocks to be completely dry before you use them.

Let all the blocks to be fully dry.

How do you make your colored Jenga blocks slide better?

The Polyurethane on sprayed blocks and the Clear acrylic spray used for the blocks painted using acrylic paints could make the Jenga blocks slide better.

You could also use a special satin finish or apply coats of natural wax to make the surface slippery and even to make the blocks slide a lot better.

How do you play Jenga colors?

You could play the classic Jenga or a colored Jenga game.

In each turn, a player would roll the colored dice, and then he or she must remove a piece of the color shown. The colored Jenga also uses the official Jenga rules. Once a piece is successfully pulled, it should be placed on the top level of the stack. Pieces could only be removed from the top of the tower once there are at least 3 full rows completed over them.
