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.
