Making Toys Better

While we were in Maine this weekend, we hit up a big Goodwill store in Portland. I got this jenga, or rather, "jumbling tower" game for a dollar.

We decided to make it better.

Behold, Drinking Jenga! A number on each piece indicates the number of sips you have to take, ranging from 0 to 4. If you knock the tower over, you must drink 3x the amount written on the block you were trying to extract. If you lose track of your piece, it's an automatic 4 drink penalty.

We played with the excellent Mead that Tim brewed for our wedding. It has definitely continued fermenting, as this bottle tasted much boozier than the previous we had. Hooray!

After 2 solid rounds, Here is the score. Paul is on the left, I'm on the right. I'm not exactly sure who is the winner and who is the loser here.

After mastering the regular game, we moved on to the more challenging "robot man" formation.
