This is a great youth group ice breaker game. Would work really well to help the group mingle and get comfortable being around one another.
You'll needa jenga set or even a giant jenga set if you have one. On each jenga block, write a "dare" (using the texta and sticky labels). Make sure the dare isn't going to be too hard, but just something that will be funny or silly. (ie. do 10 starjumps, act like a chicken for 10 seconds, get a glass of water and drink it upside down, share a limmerick). If you don't want to write or stick things on your jenga blocks then I suggest just making up a whole lot of dares on bits of paper and putting them into a hat or box to pick from.
Essentially, the rules of the game are the same as Jenga. Each player takes a turn to remove a block from the tower without making the tower fall over. If they are successful they will need to complete the dare written on the block (or pick one at random from the hat). Could make it so that if the tower falls over on someone's turn, maybe everyone has to do the dare at once (if possible).
