Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga! 

Rules of Drunken Jenga

1)The person who knocks down the tower must finish their entire drink

2)You may not touch the tower at any time if it is not your turn

4)You may not touch the player who’s turn it is during their turn

5)If the tower falls because you shook or 
bumped the table, you must finish all the drinks on the table

6)If you are sitting at the table, you are playing 
the game. 

 7)If you are standing and watching the game, you must drink 
when the block instructs (you may also be “given” drinks)

Heads Up – Do not read this out loud.  Toss block to someone not expecting the block.  If they catch it, you drink.  If they don’t, they drink.
Bodyguard – choose someone to be your bodyguard.  They must drink your drinks for the next 2 rounds.
Drink 1 – take one drink
Drink 2 and Redo – take 2 drinks and pull another block
Give 1 – pick a player to take a drink
Give 2 – pick a player to take 2 drinks, or 2 players to each take one drink
Play Again – you must remove another block
Lefty/Righty – use only your opposite hand for you next turn
Girls Drink – all girls at the table drink
Guys Drink – all guys at the table drink
Freebie – skip your next turn and all drinks in between your turns.
Rock/Paper/Scissors – everyone plays and takes a drink for every player that beats them
Do over – put the block back where you got it from and take a different one
Good Times – Everybody drinks!
Not it! – Do not read this out loud.  The last person to touch their finger to their nose takes a drink.
Drinking Buddy – pick a partner to drink with you for your next drink.  
Bartender – you are the bartender until the end of the game or until someone else pulls the Bartender block.

Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
