How much does a Jenga block weigh?

  • 237 views

Jenga is a game that’s simple yet a very challenging one. You never know what’s going to happen next every each move a player makes. This game has 54 hardwood blocks that are group into three that’s laid perpendicularly from the previous layer. It would be stacked and set-up to the 18th level.

The goal of the game is to keep the tower as stable for as long as possible as players remove a block in each of their turn and without causing it to fall as it becomes higher.

The player who successfully removed the last block before the tower collapses wins. The main star of the game is the blocks that measure 1.5×2.5×7.5 cm or 0.59×0.98×3.0 inches. The shape of the blocks is rectangular. Although they are cut and made into the same size, the final dimension of each block might vary.

The total weight of a Classic Jenga is 2.2 pounds. That’s 997.903 grams divided by 54 blocks equals 18.4796851852 grams. Each block weighs approximately 18.48 grams each.

The actual might be slightly different, but the Jenga blocks are ideal since they are uniformly dense, perfect rectangular shape, and they have no variation in its size or mass.

The best blocks to remove first are in the front and back middle ones in the tower. It would give a better chance to be looser and easier to remove or pull.

Here are some reasons why the game would build-up its complexity as it progresses.

  • The blocks vary in physical dimension and weight that could result in some of the blocks to be load-bearing, and others could be free-floating in the structure.
  • A player making an error in mishandling and manipulating the blocks would also increase the difficulty since the pressure distributions occur and uncalled movement could take place as the blocks are moved incorrectly
  • With the tower getting higher with more levels, normal forces also would increase, and the center of gravity would be unstable
  • When the blocks are not in their best position, there is more force for it to be unsteady.
