Jenga is great. Drunk Jenga is even better. You keep the same basic rules (remove a block and add it to the top of the tower without knocking it over) but with some spicy new rules for each turn.
Every block in the box is labeled with a phrase or image instructing different people to drink. It could simply say “take a sip,” and the drawer must drink, or it could have a picture of a nose signaling a game of “nose goes” to determine who drinks.
The best part is that you can create your own game by making up whatever rules you want! Get a blank box of blocks and write out your own rules. Or, if you want to make life easier, you can buy a pre-made drunk jenga box.
If you’re looking for inspiration for a game you’re creating, we’ve listed out a bunch of drunk jenga rules (things you can write on jenga blocks) that’ll spice up your next party for sure.
