Making your own Jenga with a Twist game couldn’t be easier. All you need is one Jenga set, some Modge Podge, scissors, a sponge applicator (to brush on the Modge Podge) and the free, pre-made printable that you can download by clicking here. I’m including the link for Drunken Jenga at the bottom of the post because I don’t want you to get the two mixed up–our goal here is family fun, NOT contributing to the delinquency of minors. 😉
Once you have printed your download, all you have to do is cut out each of the twist pieces and use the Modge Podge to affix them (one per block) to every Jenga block except two. There will be two blank blocks in the game–which just means that no extra twist is added to those turns.
This really is a fun, family friendly game that even my uber-cool, nearly grown, young adult children didn’t think was cheesy (and they think pretty much everything is cheesy so…) We’ve played it several times and always have lots of fun because different people pick different blocks each time therefore the game never gets stale. Best of all, the assembly is super-simple so you can make and play it all in the same day–just make sure that you allow enough time for the Modge Podge to dry.
Now, for those of you who want a more grown up (though in this instance, grown up certainly doesn’t mean more sophisticated) version of the game, you can download my Drunken Jenga printable by clicking here. This version of the game is essentially the same as Jenga with a Twist except that twelve of the twist pieces have been replaced with fun drinking challenges. Obviously, this Drunken Jenga game should only be played by individuals who are of legal drinking age and who will NOT be driving–we don’t want anyone going to jail or worse as a result of playing this game!
I hope that you enjoy this new twist on an old favorite and that your family game night becomes a FabYOUlously fun-for all, free-for-all. Enjoy!
