According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the record for building the fastest stable Jenga tower is two minutes and 51.04 seconds. The record was set on June 7, 2014 by Tyler and Ryan Measel in Pilsgrove, N.J.

The current record was set with a tower 30 levels high, which was created within the rules of the game. The tallest tower is rumored to have been about 40 levels high prior to falling. That tower was reported to have been created by Robert Grebler, though this claim is unsubstantiated. Jenga was created by Leslie Scott and debuted in 1983 at the London Toy Fair.
