Woman goes viral after creating her own drinking game with Jenga blocks

Let's face it, it doesn't look like there's meant to be any real winners here.

A woman has gone viral on Twitter after using a box of Jenga blocks to create her own drinking game that she plans to play with her friends after lockdown.

We’ve seen some pretty impressive game creations during lockdown so far, haven’t we?

It’s pretty safe to say that the best of human creativity has been showcased through having all of this additional time on our hands over the past 12 weeks, but this drinking game creation by Twitter user Rachel Leary – @rach_leary – might just be one of the best we’ve seen yet.

Think Jenga, but drunk.

Jenga is a “game of physical skill” where players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower, with each block removed and placed on top to create a progressively more unstable structure. It requires concentration and a very steady hand, two things that are not commonly associated with being under the influence of alcohol, so you can just imagine how well this game would go down at a party, pre-drinks or games night.


Sharing pictures of the stack of customised Jenga blocks, Rachel’s tweet read: “Just made my own drinking game with Jenga!”

“I can’t wait to get drunk and play this with my friends…”


A few of the drinking rules, dares, forfeits and games that appear to be featured on the Jenga blocks include ‘take a shot’, ‘waterfall’, ‘oldest drink’, ‘truth or dare’ and ‘2 truths, 1 lie’.

How brilliant is this?

We’re clearly not the only ones impressed by it either as the tweet has amassed well over 30,000 retweets, likes and comments in just a few hours since posting, with many eager to recreate their own version of the game for their next night in.


Whether you considered yourself to be pretty good at Jenga before, or you’ve just never quite seemed to get the knack of it, then this could be the game for you.

Let’s face it, it doesn’t look like there’s meant to be any real winners here.
