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 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.

  1. Funny how blocks have become such a ‘thing’ now. I’ve been spending so much time on a project lately, I’ve begun referring to my office as my block.


  2. $52? I am going to assume it’s USD.

    I can get a regular jenga set for $14.44 CAD , $10.69 USD.


    1. Yeah, but that regular one you find on the shelves everywhere is using TinyMCE. It’s not even in the same zip code with this in terms of gaming experience.


      1. I am Canadian, I don’t have zip codes. I have postal codes.
