> One of my favourite drinking games is drinking Jenga. Whilst this may not be the traditional way to play the game in my opinion it is way more fun which gets ever more funnier with every drink you take.
I will firstly explain the regular game of Jenga and then explain how you can turn it in to drinking Jenga.
Jenga involves a tower of wooden blocks that you have to move from their original position and build again on top of each other. To begin with the blocks are in a solid tower in rows of three. On the first layer the blocks will go vertically and then on the next layer they will go horizontally so you have a pattern. The tower can be built with the help of the cardboard box that they come in. The first player to take a turn must release on of these blocks from the tower and place it on the top of the towers. The rules are that you must release a block from at least two rows down and that you must only use one hand to complete the whole manoeuvre. It's quite easy at the beginning but once the tower gets higher and higher it's harder to find a block that is easy to move. If you to blue the tower over with your turn then you lose the game.
With drinking Jenga the same rules apply but then you add forfeits onto the blocks. You can write on the blocks with permanent pen and examples of dares/forfeits include, "drink a shot," "do a silly dance" "down a beer" and so on, making up your own ones. You don't have to add a comment to every block so you get the added pressure of not only having to replace a block but doing a dare as well. A few rounds in you can get quite tipsy and then the game gets even funnier.
A fun variation of the classic game.
