Good find. The game seems to be a buy now and find a use for later type item.

We have a $.99 USD Outlet by us where I picked up some 20mm cubes 12 for $1.25 USD

DM Scotty has a video on how to make simple D&D furniture from those Tumbling Tower blocks. YouTube link

For the square wood craft cubes, I made a number of rock piles from them for 28mm ruins for D&D or similar. I split a few blocks into brick-shaped quarters and with white glue made piles of the square blocks with the quarter bricks at the edges and sand filling the corners. The full block faces that showed, I painted grout lines across the center as if made up of the quarter bricks.

For a while now we've been painting up those "not Jenga" blocks and using them as unit & commander name-tags. IMHO they look better than paper versions and of course they are better at surviving the wear & tear of gaming…

DM Scotty also used those not-Jenga blocks as 2.5D dungeon wall blocks. They work very well for that.

Mad Guru, I like the way they look! Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

I use the "popsicle" sticks to mount figures in groups of 3-4 for painting. School Glue to affix them. Holds but easy to pop off.

Very useful indeed.
