Jenga is a classic game that everyone seems to know. As you and your friends pull out piece by piece, you anxiously await that final turn, as the tower comes crashing down.
Sure, it's a great game — but have you played Drunk Jenga?
Picture this, you and your friends are sitting around the table with a few beers and who knows, maybe even a few shots on-hand — then your friend whips out Jenga from the closet.
Now before you think it's lame to be playing board games so late in the night, know this:
Before you start, gather these items:
Yes, there are rules to this ridiculous (but extremely fun) game.
Now that you know the rules of drunk jenga, you’ll want some help and inspiration for choosing the challenges to write on your jenga blocks. Here is a massive list of suggestions for Drunken Jenga Game Block Ideas (downloadable PDF), but to quickly get started have a look at these ideas below:
Version One: Write the full rule/challenge on the block
Follow the steps as directed in the rules, when initially creating and then playing the game. This is your first option:
Choose challenges that can be written on each Jenga piece, writing out whatever crazy ideas you come up with. Utilizing the flat side(s) of each block, write out the rule or challenge in its entirety.
For example, a player may pull a piece and on it, it may read something like, “For the remainder of the game, speak in an accent.” If the player refuses or breaks character, they'll need to drink the number of drinks written on that block. In this case, one drink would be sufficient.
Version Two: Use the rules sheet for the code word
Follow the steps as directed in the rules, when initially creating and then playing the game. This is your second option:
On each block, write a single code word. This should correspond to a 'rules' sheet you created.
For example, a block may simply read, 'Boys.' On your rules sheet, this will likely read something like: Boys — All boys at the table take 2 drinks.
Remember, you can tailor your game to any theme or situation you please. Some prefer to make a funnier game, while others make things a bit more raunchy. After you have played once or twice, you'll likely come up with your own version of this game — and you know what? That's great! At the end of the day, stick to the objective and you'll be golden.
