Do you love playing Jenga and want to add some more fun to it? If yes, you have come to the right place. We’ll tell you five ways to add a twist to the classic Jenga to make your friends, family laugh out louder and have an unforgettable experience.
Even if you are satisfied with the simplicity of this traditional game, give these most insane ways a try to enjoy more.
Play The Giant Jenga Outdoors
Why limit Jenga fun to the table placed in your room? Take the Jenga blocks outside to your backyard or garden with some adult beverages. Jenga comes in different sizes, including a giant version that can stack more than 1.5 meters.
There is another cardboard version that allows you to stack the blocks up to 2.4 meters high. If you want to build an even longer tower, you can DIY more blocks with cardboard.
Aside from this, there is a brand new version of the classic Jenga to add more cheers to the game, Tipsy Topple Giant Jello Shot Tower. It is a traditional Jenga with a twist of Jello shots that allows the players to booze and play at the same time. It adds more suspense, skills, and loads of laughter to the game.
Write Some Fun Commands On The Blocks
The smooth Jenga bricks are waiting for you to write something on them. Just take some markers and start writing. You can turn Jenga into a truth-and-dare-or-topple game.
Know your audience first, and write the commands accordingly. Some might like the command, ‘Say, I love you to the person on your left’ while others might be better with commands, like ‘Sing a romantic song.’
In addition, you can make it a workout game and encourage your friends to maintain a healthy lifestyle. You can write several workout commands on the sides of the blocks, such as-
- Do a headstand
- Do deadlifts
- Do high knees, etc.
Play It Backwards
This is quite interesting! Build a Jenga tower with center blocks missing so that there are only two blocks on a level. Then, insert the blocks into the tower using only one hand. Play the regular way if you do it without toppling the tower.
You can take the game to another level by stacking three blocks horizontally and then five blocks vertically on their smaller ends, followed by three more horizontal blocks and so on! The true Jenga nerds can remove the blocks with a whip.
Play Jenga With A Whip
Another way to make Jenga more enjoyable is to play it with a whip. It requires high precision and skill, though. You need to master the technique in order to win. In this game, you are required to remove the Jenga blocks by aiming the whip at the tower and removing the blocks.
For example, Adam Winrich made a Guinness World Record by removing the most Jenga blocks with a whip in a minute. You can also try topping that.
Make It Educational For The Kids
Your kids will love getting to know that they will learn something while playing Jenga. You can help your kids practice maths equations, grammar concepts or sight words through this fun activity. There are endless options; all you need is some creativity.
Besides, you can play feelings Jenga by writing emotion words on the blocks or any other words to help them improve their communication skills. The key is to ensure that they are comfortable and relaxed.
To Sum Up
Now that you know how to make Jenga more fun, you are all set to enjoy it to the fullest. Pick any of the ways mentioned above, gather your friends, family, and get ready to have unlimited fun together.
