Our Top 10 Stag Do Games

1. Thumbmaster

This game involves conveniently placed thumbs and keeping your eyes peeled. One of the lads will be nominated the ‘thumbmaster’ and whenever he puts his thumb on the edge of the table you have to do the same. The last to do so has to down their drink and becomes the new ‘thumbmaster’

2. Higher or Lower

Guess if the person next to you has a card that’s higher or lower than yours. If you guess correctly the person next to you has to drink. And if you guess incorrectly you have to drink. And finally if both of your cards have the same value then both of you have to drink your drinks!

3. Pub Golf

Get kitted up in your finest golfing gear and decide on if you’re doing a 9 or 18 watering hole pub crawls. Once you’ve got that give each pub a par of 3,4 or 5 (gulps) and that’s how many gulps it should take to down your drink. Mark your scores at each pub.

4. Ring of Fire

A game that involves playing cards and alcohol. Set up a circle with the cards face down and an empty glass in the middle. Everyone needs a good amount of alcohol as each person picks up a card. Each card has a different meaning that can result in some sort of drinking.

5. Dead Ants

Get the group together and decide on a dictator. When the dictator says ‘DEAD ANT’ all the group will need to fall on the floor, stick their arms and legs up in the air and scramble like ants. The rule is that everyone has to do it no matter where you are. Trust us when we say you’ll be in hysterics.

6. Don't Say a Word

Put together a list of words that are banned for the duration of the event. Whoever says these words has to do a punishment. These words could be the bride’s name, pint, loo, beer, shot. You get the idea. Try and trick some of the lads to end up saying some of these words too!

7. Shark Attack

As you’re enjoying your stag night out you will have one nominated shark spotter. As soon as you hear the two words…SHARK ATTACK! You have to be quick as you try and scramble up onto anything above the ground. It could be the bar, a table, anything!

8. Whoosh!

A simple way to get everyone to down their drinks. Wherever you are and whenever you have a drink in your hands on the stag do. Make sure everyone understands the game and as soon as someone says ‘whoosh!’ as loud as they can everyone else has to and then down your drink.

9. "Never Have I Never"

A great way to get everyone merry and to find out things you didn’t know about one another. Say a statement that you haven’t done before and whoever in the group has done it has to drink. If the groom has done it then he has to open up with more detail about the statement.

10. Opposite Hand

A game that can be used all night long. Whenever your group fancy a drink of their beer they will have to use their opposite hand. You can call anyone out who doesn’t do this and they will be given a reprimand. But if you call out incorrectly then you must do the punishment.

Funny Stag Rules to Try

Firstly, let’s remember that the stag bro code is a sacred contract between all the lads attending the stag do.  As such, there are rules that all the stags must follow.  All you have to do is follow the rules. Break or don’t obey them and you’re in a world of hurt. You might have to complete a outrageous stag challenge or a series of funny forfeits

Below are some rules that you could decide to add to your stag trip.

Stag Do Rules List

1. Man Up

Your with the lads now, so no messing when it coming to doing your part.  Whether that to “chug it” or “get the round in” – don’t argue, just get it done.  No one likes a whinger, so get in the fun spirit.

2. Don’t Phone Home

You’re on a stag event! Focus the time with the groom to be. We’re sure you’re allowed to have 1 or 2 nights without speaking to the missus, so save it for when you are alone in the hotel room. 

3. Wounded Warrior

Someone won’t be able to handle it.  Whether that’s from general tiredness or doesn’t realise the weekend is marathon not a sprint.  If this happens, just get him back to the hotel room safely and then head back out to meet the lads.

4. First rule of Fight Club – There is no Fight Club!

Don’t bring any aggressive behaviour with you.  A group of lads together can be great, but it takes one plonker to ruin it for everyone.  Don’t fall out, its only for 2 days.

5. No Photos

With fake news and social media everywhere, just don’t take any photo’s or videos of comprising situations.  Nobody wants a picture of themselves being sick or chatting to two strippers on their Facebook page.

6. Keep one eye on the Stag

Remember is all about the stag, don’t let him get carried away and then miss half the night.  Make sure he is drinking water and eating plenty.  Without him there is no show.

7. This is a Dictatorship

There is one leader and that is the best man.  So, if his word is 3 shots in a row for everyone, just do what the man says.

8. Finally, the Golden Rule of All Stag Do’s

This has been passed from man to man for many decades now. “What happens on a stag weekend, stays on a stag weekend”. This trip is just for the boys and no one else.

Dares vs Traditional Stag Games

A long-debated topic of celebrating a last night of freedom is ‘how far is too far?’ Depending on your groom to be, you might want to add a few dares into the mix to liven things up! See our top 20 stag do dares for inspiration. But what are the pros and cons of each, read more...

Stag Dares

This umbrella can cover anything from a bit naughty to full-on adrenaline-pumping acts that will really test the guys.

Stere­oty­pic­ally, they focus on the stag in hand. However, groups have been known to throw a bunch of stag party dares into a hat and draw them out one at a time.

From buying the biggest guy in the room a blowjob shot to challenging the stag to strip and streak, you can get pretty crazy ones!

Stag Games

For decades, a last night of freedom has been littered with funny games that get the lads on the floor laughing. They are a great icebreaker for a group that don't know each other that well.

Throw in classic drinking games or opt for non drinking games – the choice is yours!
