Turn the game into the focal point of a party by making it huge; literally. Buy some regular 2×4 wall studs and cut 54 10.5-inch pieces. Sand those bad boys down until they are smooth like glass. The game gets bigger, the suspense gets bigger and the crash of blocks is way bigger. Enjoy the chorus of, “Oh,” as the tower comes down. Everybody will want to call next.
You want the game raised a little bit so everyone can see the action. Find a stout, heavy night stand with a flat top. Do not play on a full sized table; you might not be able to reach the top of the tower.
