Nate has always wanted to hold a Guinness World Records title. "I started looking for records that fit my skillsets and interests. I have always loved games, so I looked for a record that involved a game and tried it out. I wasn’t too far off on my first try so I kept at it.

To train for this record Nate practiced over and over. "I tried different strategies of deciding where to start pulling the Jenga blocks from the tower. Training wasn’t too difficult, but it did take a lot of practice to figure out the best way to remove the blocks quickly and efficiently.
