Enter the world of Drunk Jenga, a daring combination of the classic block-stacking game and some whimsically boozy twists that’ll have you and your friends teetering on the edges of your seats. Carefully remove those blocks, indulge in spirits, and unleash laughter all in the name of friendly competition! This guide will equip you with everything you need to ascend the precarious heights of Drunk Jenga mastery.
Assembling the perfect Drunk Jenga experience involves just a few key items:
- A Jenga set (either store-bought or homemade)
- A permanent marker (or multiple colors for added flair)
- A flat, sturdy table or surface for gameplay
- Your favorite drinks — it can be anything, from beer to delectable cocktails
Before getting started, write various drinking challenges or rules on the Jenga blocks. These could range from standard drinking commands to obscene tasks or even silly physical challenges. Randomly stack the Jenga blocks in the traditional 3×3 pattern. Ensure everyone has their drink of choice at hand, and you’re ready to let the games begin!
The Rules of Drunk Jenga
Drunk Jenga follows the regular game’s standard rules but with an alcohol-infused twist. Here’s a brief overview for those new to the game:
- Players take turns carefully removing a Jenga block from the tower. Players can only use one hand, and they cannot remove a block from the top row.
- Once a block is successfully removed, the player must read the rule or challenge written on it and follow through.
- If the rule does not apply (e.g., the drink is empty), the player must wait for the next available turn.
- After completing the task or challenge, the player stacks the block on top of the tower.
- The game continues until the tower falls or players cannot make any more legal moves.
