It may or may not come as a surprise, but the absolute best Jenga playing is while people have been drinking. Not a lot mind you, and not everyone has to drink, but for some reason, when a few people in the game are partially buzzed, everyone tends to work that much harder to get things done. That, and they are drunk, so they don't care if they lose.
Me with my gin and tonic, Sarah with her XX, we set out (with Alicia along for the ride) to make the greatest tower in existence. Which we failed at. Horribly. But we did take some of the best pictures I have ever seen involving Jenga.
This next one is pretty much the best Jenga photo ever taken, for all times.
And now Alicia gets to clean up. HA! And for those sharp-eyed folk who notice that there is a bottle of gin on the table, but no tonic, just keep in mind: my concept of a gin and tonic is largely gin with enough tonic water to stop permanent scarring from occuring. This is not to say that I do not like tonic water. I actually do, strangely, it just tends to slow down the inevitable.
These pictures are shot from another Jenga game that was also a lot of fun. I put them here just to show off my intense love of drinking and playing Jenga.
