What’s more fun than playing Jenga? Why, playing Jenga with a Jenga Pistol, of course!
Here’s Matthias Wandel showing us his invention, a wooden pistol powered by a rubber band:
The game of Jenga was possibly designed to be a more contemplative and strategic game. But sliding those blocks out carefully without knocking over the stack is just entirely too fiddly a task to perform. I figured it would be much more fun to just be able to shoot the blocks out with some sort of pistol. [...] It takes … about one twentieth of a second, from the point that the trigger is released to the Jenga block clearing the stack.
