Essentials To Play Jenga Drinking Game

Drunk Jenga - Essentials

One sure thing about the Jenga drinking game is that it works magically for all parties. Yes, it is also a fabulous bachelorette party game. The loveliest thing is that it needs minimalist stuff to play. Here’s all you need: 

  • The Jenga game (the blocks). It’s available in many shops, but Amazon is a good idea. You can get it for $16.99
  • Some colorful Sharpies. They work best when writing challenges on the tiles.
  • Drinks for all players. You can get whatever the group prefers, but to prevent alcohol poisoning, get beers.

Drunk Jenga, just like classic Jenga can be played by 2 or more people. Needless to say, only people who are 21 or older can play.

How To Play Drunk Jenga

Drinking games such as Jenga, bring lots of joy, and that is indisputable! Once you have the game (specifically, the tiles) what you have to do next is write dares and questions on them. 

After you’re done completing the game, set the tower up in the middle of the table, or the floor, and take turns playing. In their turn, players must draw a tile, complete the challenge, and then place the tile on top. 

By all means, it’s all about what’s written on the tiles (we’ll give dozens of ideas in a wink of an eye). However, each player aims to remove and place blocks without crashing the tower, just as in the standard game. Whoever does that, has to finish their drink. 

Here’s a TikTok of people making the game, just so you get an idea: Jenga drinking game.

These DIY drinking games are all about getting creative. We can give you a hand with that!

  • Casanova: Kiss the player on your right or drink.
  • Two truths & one lie: You tell the group 2 truths and 1 lie about yourself. If they guess which was the lie, you drink. If they don’t, all of them drink.
  • Waterfall: Starting from the player who pulled the block, all players have to start drinking. You have to keep drinking until the person on your left stops.

  • Text your ex: Or you could possibly take a shot if texting your ex is too much. 
  • Google search reveal: Tell everyone your latest Google searches or take 2 shots.
  • Lobster: Just as in Friends. If you pull this block, you get to pick someone to be your lobster till the end of the game. When you drink, they drink. And vice-versa. Just like your drinking buddy.
  • Talk dirty: Until it’s your turn again, you have to talk dirty and nasty to your cup of drink before you drink.
  • Underwear guesses: Everyone has to guess the player on their left’s underwear. For every wrong guess, you take a sip.

  • Seatbelt: Everyone pretends they have an invisible seatbelt till the end of the game. Every time they have to get up and sit down, they have to take off and put on their seatbelt. Drink every time you forget to do so.
  • Reverse Spelling B: Spell the name of the player to your right backward. Take a sip for every mistake. 
  • Ladies drink. The name says it all.
  • Give 2, take 2, and redo. Simply, give 2 drinks, take 2 drinks, and pull a tile again.
  • Strip or drink: The puller has to strip off one article of clothing, or take a shot. 
  • Summer vacation: For the next round, no one can make you drink or complete a task. You’re on summer vacation. 
  • Foot massage: Give the player to your left a foot massage or drink.
  • Never Have I Ever: Read 5 Never Have I Ever questions out loud. Whoever relates to the prompt drinks. 
  • Sober: Everyone drinks except you.
  • Boys drink. Boys won’t be forgotten too!
  • Make a rule: Whoever pulls this block can make a rule of their own that will be applied to the entire game.
  • Cheese: You can give as many drinks as the number of cheeses you can name in 30 seconds. 
  • Rock, paper, scissors: The puller chooses someone to play Rock, Paper, Scissors. The looser drinks.
  • Secret terrorist: Pick one word to be the destroying word. If you hear that word during the night, you have to crash the tower. 
  • Categories: Pick a category (e.g. Harry Potter series, 80s band names, Star Wars characters), and everyone, starting from the puller, names one thing for the category. The first to mess up, drinks.  
  • World Wide Web: For the next 3 rounds, you have to add ‘www.’ and ‘.com’ to everything you say. Drink every time you mess up. 
  • Question master: Until the game’s over, you can ask the other players any question, at any time (‘What is this game called?’). If they answer, they drink.

To make it simple, we prefer you only write the names of the rules in the blocks (the ones written in bold), to not take too much space, and then read the descriptions in our list. Cheers!
