“My favorite game is trying to take something out of the refrigerator…” (Refrigerator Jenga)

Jenga is a game where players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower of 54 blocks. If the tower collapses, that player “loses” and the other players “win.”

“Refrigerator Jenga” (or “Fridge Jenga") is trying to take something out of (or put something in) a stuffed refrigerator without other items coming crashing down. “Monumental Costco run is complete… Now, onto refrigerator Jenga” was posted on Twitter by Lisa Oshima on December 29, 2008. “My aunty is playing refrigerator Jenga to get all the groceries to fit” was posted on Twitter by Sara Ishizaki on June 19, 2019. “No more ‘Fridge Jenga’, 15 people sharing one mini fridge” was posted on Twitter by Jordan Davis 『夜弾』on July 21, 2019.

“My favorite game is trying to take something out of the refrigerator without moving the other items in front of it. I call it Refrigerator Jenga, and when you lose you clean up marinara for 40 minutes” was posted on Twitter by jon drake on January 27, 2020.

Dish Drain Jenga is a related term.


Wikipedia: Jenga
Jenga is a game of physical skill created by British board game designer and author Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Hasbro. Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively more unstable structure.

Refrigerator Jenga is much more treacherous when the light-bulb has burned out. :/
