How to play Jenga as a drinking game 🤓
Jenga is a drinking game that can be played with a group of people. The game’s object is to stack blocks on top of each other without knocking over the tower. If you knock over the building, you have to drink. The game can be played with different rules, but the basic premise is always the same!
The main difference between this drinking game and regular Jenga is that there are labels on the blocks. These labels correspond to rules that must be followed when the block is pulled. For example, there may be a rule that says “drink 1” or “make a rule”. The player who pulls the block must follow the instruction on the label.
