OVERVIEW OF DRUNK JENGA
Drunk Jenga, or the Jenga Drinking Game, is a drinking game variation of the classic tabletop game.
This game is played in a very similar way to standard Jenga but with a fun and social twist. Drunk Jenga adds a layer of alcohol-related challenges and is a popular house party, bar crawl, or bachelor/bachelorette party game. Instead of simply removing blocks, players will also have to perform an action that is written on the block. This creates an unpredictable and unique Jenga game that is super fun among a group of friends.
You won’t need much to play this Drunk Jenga, as it is super easy to set up.
- 54 Jenga or Giant Jenga blocks
- Several permanent markers or Sharpies
- Alcoholic beverages of your choice
Each player takes a permanent marker and writes a few rules on the Jenga blocks. These rules can be anything you want. Let your creativity shine!

Here are a few examples of rules you could write down on the blocks for the Jenga Drinking Game.

BUILDING THE JENGA TOWER
Once you have finished writing rules on all 54 Jenga blocks, it is time to build the Jenga tower. The tower should be built with 18 layers of 3 blocks. Each layer of 3 should be stacked perpendicularly to the previous.
HOW TO PLAY DRUNK JENGA
Finished building the tower? Now it is time to play! The first player to pull a block should be the youngest person in the room. Each turn, a player chooses a block, pulls it out, reads the rule or action written on the block aloud, and performs this action. Finally, the player places the block on top of the Jenga tower, and the person to their left can start.
The game continues like this: pulling blocks, performing the action, and placing the rule on top of the tower until the tower falls down.
YOU MUST REMOVE THE FIRST BLOCK YOU TOUCH
One of the only important rules of this drinking game version of Jenga is that you must remove the first block you touch. Even if the first block you touch is tough to remove, you MUST try. The penalty for touching another block is to finish your drink!
END OF GAME
Drunk Jenga ends when the tower falls down. The last player to pull out a block or the player who caused it to fall over must finish their drink and then set up the tower for the next game! Looking for some more fun games? Check out our top adult games!
