12 Hen Party Drinking Games
1. Never Have I Ever Questions
Before the party put together a list of suggestions and situations. Then in a group read out each one and the hens have to take a drink if it applies to them. This can easily become a rude hen party game if thats what you were wanting.
2. The Chase
Members sit in a circle; give two people sitting opposite each other a cup and dice. Each number has a different result. 1 = Pass the cup and dice to the person sitting to the left. 2 = Pass the cup and dice to the person sitting to the right. 3 = drink your drink. 4 = person to the right takes a shot. 5 = person to the right takes a shot. 6 = you take a shot.
Pick out a select few words that you are not allowed to say during the hen party. If any of the words have been said by any hen, she has to face the consequence...a shot!
4. Hot Shots
Make sure you have a shot glass for every hen. Secretly fill some of the glasses up with water and the rest up with a clear spirit. Get each hen to take their glass and as soon as you say "HOT" everyone has to take the shot!
5. Two Truths & a Lie
Everyone take it in turns to tell two truths and a lie. The rest of the group has to figure out which is the lie. If they get it right, the liar takes a drink, if they're wrong they have to!
6. Drunk Jenga
It's your classic game of jenga with a twist. Instead of just pulling out a jenga block, each block will have different things wrote on them to ultimately get you all drunk!
7. What’s My Drink?
The first person starts the game by saying ‘I’m going to the bar and I’m going to get a shot of tequila’ then the next repeats and adds on a drink and so on. When someone messes up they have to shot.
8. Add Me Up
Wrap up a present like pass the parcel but as someone is trying to open it with oven gloves on the other throws 2 dice. If the numbers = 10 they then swap. If they don’t they shot and pass it to the next person.
9. Battle Shots
Like the classic game everyone used to play, except for your ships are now shots. Secretly arrange your shots like you would ships and start your guessing.
10. Don’t Drop Me
Write dares on paper and put them inside balloons before blowing them up. Then take it in turns to walk from one side of the room to the other with a balloon in your legs. If you drop it you have to pop it and do the dare & take a shot.
11. Fuzzy Duck
Sit in a circle and take it in turns to say “fuzzy duck”, you can also decide to say “does he?” which will then change the direction of play and instead you with say “ducky fuzz.” If a player accidently says the wrong word they have to drink.
12. The Name Game
The first player starts by saying a famous person’s name, the next player has to say a famous person’s name starting with the first letter of the previous surname. For example, Justin Bieber, Benedict Cumberbatch, Caitlin Jenner…you get the idea?

When to Play Hen Party Games?
No matter if you're going somewhere abroad, elsewhere in the UK or staying in your home town for your hen party, there's always a good time to play some games during your celebrations! However, it may seem somewhat difficult to pinpoint just when you and the girls will have any free time, especially if you have a lot of activities planned!
If you're planning on hitting the town for a big night out, then why not kick off the night and start the hen party games early during your pre-drinks? You and the girls can set each other challenges and forfeits for the night out ahead of you that will end up making everything a lot more interesting as soon as you hit the town, where you can then move on to more challenging and nerve-racking dares!
Why Games are Good Icebreakers
Bringing all the girls together for an all-important celebration of the bride-to-be is a wonderful occasion, but sometimes you might need to break the ice a little bit before kicking off the antics. If so, then what better way to get everybody feeling more at ease than with a few fun and silly hen party games and dares? By starting off the hen do this way, those in your group who don't know each other very well or at all will be able to get acquainted early on, making for a more social and enjoyable experience for everybody from then on!
5 Classy Hen Party Games
1. The Great British Bite Off
Everyone loves The Great British Bake Off so why not incorporate it into your party. Give every hen a biscuit and give them an object that they need to shape the biscuit into. The hen with the best shaped biscuit at the end is the winner!
2. Would She Rather
Make up a piece of card with different would she rather statements on. Like would she rather go abroad or would she rather stay in the UK, for example. Circle which you think most suits the bride-to-be and see who knows her the best.
3. Wise Words
Before the hen weekend ask all the girls to send over a few words of advice or kind words that can be funny or cheeky. Print them all off on a piece of card and fold them into a hat. The bride-to-be then picks them out of the hat, reads them out and guesses who said it!
4. Bridal Mad Libs
Similar to our Advice for the Bride. Bridal Mad Libs are fun cards that have been made for you to simply fill in the blanks to create your own personalised letter to give to the bride before her special day. These can often come pretty hilarious.
5. Purse Said
Write a list down of random objects you may find in your purse. Get the hens into 2 teams and start shouting out each object. The team who pulls it out of their purse the quickest are the winners of the round.
Which Games to Play with Family?
Of course, hen party games with family members can be brilliantly hilarious! However, depending on who it is that's joining you, it might be a wise idea to tone down some of the feistier dares and challenges that you would otherwise play with your friends... remember, everybody is different! Luckily, there are still a lot of hen games to play with family that are both a bit tamer yet still as enjoyable!
How Many Games Should you Play?
Depending on how much free time you and the girls have, it's pretty much up to you as to how many games you should play! No matter whether the sole focus of playing games is to break the ice between unfamiliar members of the group or you're just looking to get into the celebrations with a few laughs, there's really no limit on what, when or how many you play!
We will note that the most common times that people play hen party games is on the night out, so whilst everyone is still present (and mostly sober!), the start of the night will probably be the ideal time to kick off with a few rounds of classic challenges, truth or dare and more!
