I got this game at Goodwill for 33 cents and played it with my friends.  It wasn't very fun.  It's played like Jenga only there are questions on the wooden blocks that you have to answer.  I knew I would never play it again (plus I lost a piece) so I decided to throw it away until I realized it would make a pretty nifty bracelet.  I drilled all the holes, strung the blocks and beads, put the bracelet on my wrist... and then found the missing piece.  Roll Eyes



It's a bit chunky... I still have some pieces left so if I ended up making another I could cut the blocks in half I suppose... any other ideas?  More beads?  Smaller beads?

Belt?  Handbag strap?  Individual blocks & questions as provocative brooches?  Chunky buttons on a winter coat?
When you consider what it can cost to just go to a craft shop and buy supplies I think you've done brilliantly to reconstruct game pieces so well - more interesting than standard supplies and (hopefully) cheaper too.

that's such a super idea!  buttons would be really cool.  you could even make earrings, or any jewelry for that matter.  you could stack them like popsicle sticks and make a little jewelry (or whatever) box.

That's a pretty sweet bracelet. I love Goodwill and Salvation Army thrift stores, they've always got the best games! I got scrabble for $1 awhile back and I've made a ton of stuff out of it! It'd be cool to see a bracelet made with those and some seed beads or something, maybe drill two holes through the wood and then make a bracelet with two strands and a bunch of beads. But I like the one you made just how it is! It's pretty darn cool if you ask me!

Individual blocks & questions as provocative brooches?

I really like this idea. ♥ Although I don't know if it'd be a little heavy?
