The world record for stacking the most Jenga blocks on one vertical piece has just been broken. Tai Star Valianti, who’s based in Arizona, put up an anxiety-inducing video of himself performing such an endeavor and setting the new record.

A total of 485 blocks were placed on top of one another, surpassing a record Valianti, himself, set last year at 353 bricks. Valianti spent two hours putting together the monstrosity. It managed to stay standing for approximately nine minutes until his son knocked it over. Guiness World Record‘s official website recognized the challenge of taking on such a feat: “as one can imagine, it takes quite a bit of time and consideration to place each piece in the perfect spot so that the tower is not at risk for collapsing. The most incredible part of the tower is that as Tai builds, he expands it outwards from the single Jenga block giving it a physics-defying appearance! Surprisingly, the center remains hollow where the first standing Jenga block is placed. The result makes the Jenga blocks appear like an upside-down pyramid resting on a single piece.” In the video, Valianti explains, prior to the record, how his non-recorded personal best was 432 bricks and that he had to end it at 485, simply because he ran out of bricks in his house.
