WPTavern: Gutenberg-Inspired Jenga Game “Gutenblox” Now Available for Sale

WPTavern: Gutenberg-Inspired Jenga Game “Gutenblox” Now Available for Sale

XWP’s Gutenberg-inspired Jenga sets were arguably the most innovative swag at WordCamp US this year, but there weren’t enough to go around. Gutenblox, fondly dubbed “the Other Block Building Interface,” is now available on its own website where anyone can buy a set.

The Gutenblox.fun store is running on BigCommerce with the new Twenty Nineteen theme active. It includes the rules of the game, cleverly adapted to the concept of Gutenblox:

Blocks treat Paragraphs, Headings, Media, etc. all as components that strung together make up the tower. Replacing the traditional concept of board games, Gutenblox is designed with progressive enhancement, meaning as new blocks are added to the top of the tower, they are backward compatible with all legacy content (although the legacy structure may become unstable as new blocks are added on).

We hope to offer rich value to players who will start with the foundation of a stable, accessible, and secure architecture, and then use a simple drag-and-drop method for modification.

If you’re looking for a last-minute holiday gift or birthday gift for a friend who loves WordPress, Gutenblox is fun option. It also helps support a good cause. XWP is donating all profits from the sales of the game to the WordPress Foundation.
