This was a really simple math project.

Hemlock/Fir 2×4’s sanded and healthy coat of shellac allow for smooth block removal from the middle or sides and put on top.

Our first trial allowed us to finish the game with no remaining moves which was really cool to see.

The project took about 6-7hours for cutting, sanding, and shellac finishing.. Total cost is expensive to create but I kept 2×4 scraps from other projects created over the course of a year or so and had enough to finish this awesome game.

Cool ....but if you used just 2×4s You did an injustice to the game you should have cut the wood lengths to different widths to vary the difficulty of the game not make it easyer. Geesh man Add some 1×3 or 2×2s.

The math for the game wouldn’t work out properly though.. It’s a ratio 3 blocks side by side equals the length of one block.

Changing the ratio could increase the challenge but I found it challenging enough because of the height you can reach with the game as it’s played.

I’m 6’4” and it can grow to be taller than I am.

Thanks for the comments!
