31 Drunk Jenga Ideas For Blocks & Tiles
1) Arm Wrestle with another player
Unravel those sleeves, flex your muscles, and see who is the strongest in this classic arm competition. Just be careful that you don’t hurt yourself! You can also mix things up by randomly selecting their opponent.
2) Does Anyone Need Anything?
The person who grabs this jenga piece will have to make a run to the fridge and/or cooler to grab the other players a refill or snack to complete their turn.
3) Finish Your Drink
This one is pretty darn straight-forward. You won’t get bonus points for getting down on one knee and chugging your entire drink, but it can’t hurt!
4) Go Again (Re do your turn)
This drunk jenga idea makes you go again and take another block from the tower. Double the turns, double the chances of making the tower crash to the ground. Uh-oh!
5) Attempt a hand stand
This may be more difficult for the coordinated-deficient people playing the game. But everyone will appreciate the effort as you take to the ground to attempt a gym class staple. Just be careful!
6) Tik Tok Star
Player must film a Tik Tok and post it to their account. Who knows… maybe it will go viral.
7) Text your crush
😘🤩😘 Lol I think ur so cuuute.
8) Make a speech
Whether you go for short and to the point or a bit more long-winded, you better get the party’s attention with this jenga challenge and go for it! People will not remember every aspect of the speech but if you can recite Bill Pullman’s speech from Independence Day people will remember!
9) Photographer (take a photo of everyone who is playing)
This doubles as a perfect way to capture this game and record just how sloppy everyone looked after playing a game or two of drunk jenga in Brenda’s kitchen. You can also share the picture with your other game players and they all can keep it to remember what an amazing time they had at so-and-so’s party.
10 Speak in an accent for 5 minutes
This might be a bit extreme, but it can help any actors in the game practice one of the many accents they will need to perfect as they take on Hollywood. You can choose whichever accent you would like to attempt, but if you start losing it, you know your drunk jenga opponents are going to make you take a drink.
11) Take a shot of the nearest hard liquor
You better have something to wash down this shot or you are going to have to take some hard alcohol to the face. Vodka, tequila, gin, choose your weapn of choice. Which ever one you choose, the same result is going to happen.
13) Girls! (All girls playing must take a drink)
Ladies, it is time to take a drink!
14) Boys! (All boys playing must take a drink)
All the men in the room must show they are not afraid of a little drinky drink. So let’s not let the ladies have all the fun!
15) Draw a face on your big toe and make it tell a joke
If you have a problem with feet, this may be a bit harder for you. However, this jenga drinking game idea is easy to execute on and can be funny for the group depending on their sense of humor and how much they have had to drink that night.
16) Old Man Jenkins!
The oldest person playing must take a drink.
17) Switch shirts
Switch shirts with another player for one turn.
Act out an impression of someone at the party and let everyone guess who it is. If you do Elvis everyone is going to know. Also, no Darth Vader! We wont have anyone going to the dark side during your round of drunk jenga.
19) Shark Tank 🦈🦈🦈
The person who has the best shark tank idea gets to hand out 3 drinks. Time to find out who the Mr. Wonderful of the game is.
20) Whale Watcher 🐋🐋🐋
Try your best to name 4 types of whales. You can also take a few minutes to research some interesting facts about your four whales and tell the rest of the players in the game what you have learned. See…. you won’t only be having fun during drunk jenga, you will also be learning something in the process.
21) Blind Kiss
Close your eyes and have one person in the group kiss you, then you must guess who kissed you.
22) Ticket Master
Last person in the room to get a speeding or parking ticket must take a drink.
23) Shotgun a beer
Grab a beer. Grab a key. You know the rest.
24) Drink and Sneeze
Drink for 10 seconds and then fake sneeze. Extra points for making the sneeze so loud it stops the other conversations at the party.
This one is real simple. Attempt a handstand. If you need to use a wall or another player to help you balance, that is your call.
26) Play Heads Up
The player who pulls this Jenga piece must play a round of Heads Up while the other players play as the audience.
27) Hug A Friend
Find a friend. Hug them. I am sure at least one of you will feel better after it.
28) You’ve been great Coachella!
The player who has been to a music festival most recently must take a drink.
Player must make a haiku in the time it takes for them to take their next turn. Calling all poets at the party!
30) Use your non-dominant hand during your next turn
This one can be a bit tricky (especially if you are deep into the game) but it can seriously mix things up and test ever the most experienced of Jenga players.
One round of charades the old fashioned way. The person to your immediate right will choose how many slips of paper you must get through. Try to make the ideas fun and include a phrase, person, place, or thing. Remember: no sounds! Play a round of charades with the other players writing in their ideas. See how many you can get through in 1 minute.
