'Blind Jenga' proves to be very difficult.

I can't even begin to imagine how stupendously boring regular Jenga must be, despite the thoroughly amusing Jenga theme song, "You take a block from the bottom and you put it on top..."

We celebrated Kar-a-mo's birthday a little late this year with quesadillas, tasty alcoholic beverages and Truth or Dare Jenga.

I don't know how many Jenga blocks are used to complete the tower, but I am going to estimate 51.

Red and Black Jenga blocks were preprinted with dares and requests to tell the truth. The natural coloured blocks are free for wild imaginations to write (with a pencil) anything as X-rated or as goofy as the players want.

During game play there was some kissing action, a cheeseball cheerleader-style cheer, and other greasy activities. We learned secrets about each other that should not necessarily have been revealed.

But they were. And I haven't slept since.

Unfortunately, nobody used their skills to pull out such awesome dare blocks as "Pick your nose. Your finger must penetrate past the first knuckle" while players continuously pulled out "What is the most fun you've had in a car?"

There were two distinctly different and equally memorable answers to that question. Mr. Industries enjoyed some female action, while yours truly raced my Talon against a friend, achieving speeds in excess of 220 kph (137 mph for my American readers), but sadly, still not reaching maximum velocity.

I've decided that in order to stay new and fresh, those Jenga people must come up with yet another iteration of their tower game. Kind of a combination of Jenga and Perfection, and with shield protection for each player.

Each Jenga block is hollowed out and tiny Black Cat firecrackers are placed inside. A 5 minute wick (give or take a minute) is attached to all the firecracker blocks and lit.

Players must quickly slide the Jenga blocks out and stack them on top. Only then can they retreat to the safety of their Jenga shield. When five minutes is up, BOOM! The tower comes crashing down, in a different kind of way.

I call it Urban Demolition Specialist Jenga.

Or they could replace the black cats with thermite. Then when it was time the whole thing would burn its way down to the lowest level of the house.

You are freaking creepy. I almost put thermite in that post because yesterday I had a lengthy discussion with a coworker who used to train with it at some army base.

Maybe the government IS reading our minds.

maybe the government is reading your minds! uhh, that wouldn't be as scary if MY gov. was reading our minds, with their telephone tapping and all....oh yeah, they already are!

i think i'll move to canada, i've had it with dubya. any room for music teachers up there?

are there lots of places to find conversion tables?

i've never played jenga, but i think it could be quite interesting with the RIGHT questions, as you suggest.

BTW, my finger won't penetrate my nose past my first knuckle, i just tried it.

SHUT UP! We played drunken Truth or Dare Jenga in Montreal! Although it was not AS exciting or adventurous as your game appears, we did get quite a kick out of putting our own perverted twist on it. The "in bed" twist. This involved completing all truths, dares, and "never have I ever's" with the suffix "in bed."

Wow, another interesting rendition of the Jenga game. You really can write ANYthing on those white blocks huh? Next time maybe I'll come up with something utterly outrageous!
