Too much of anything is bad. But too much champagne is just right!
Let's face it, when it comes to stag or hen parties, a little bit of alcohol is great to set the tone and start the party.
A few hen party drinking games can be a great way to boost the hen spirit and help everyone relax.
If you are thinking of playing chickens, remember to consider upcoming guests and their interest in drinking alcohol.
Drinking games are also known to be a little risky. So also think about how pleasant it will be for guests to share or hear some not so clean stories.
If you're tempted to drink a few hens, keep reading for some ideas!
1. Prosecco Pong
This is a fun variant of the classic university game Bier Pong.
You can think of this as a classy idea for a bachelor party or as the way to the carnage. In any case, it will be a topic of conversation and ensure that the fun gets going.
It also breaks the ice pretty well.
You can buy the game Here and it comes with 12 Prosecco glasses and 3 table tennis balls to play with.
2. Where's the water?
Have enough shot glasses for all guests and the bride. Fill half with water and half with vodka. The girls have to take one shot each. Some will be lucky and some will not be so lucky!
3. Forbidden words
Pick a few words that are really common or wedding related. Forbid these words to be spoken over the chicken weekend, and use losses for those who forget and blurt out the words. For example: wedding, groom's name, bathroom, kitchen. The more frequent the better, as guests have to find alternative words for them!
4. Keep a straight face
Have each guest write down a word or words with a sentence that begins with “I am” or “I will”. Basically, the more ridiculous the better. Put all of them in a bowl and each guest must then take one and read it aloud while keeping a straight face. If they smile or laugh, it expires!
5. Most likely
This is an excellent game to play with people you don't know or who you just met. Perfect for a mixed bachelorette party! The bachelor party sits in a circle with a drink, with a player asking a "most likely" question. At 3, everyone points to whoever they think is most likely to do what was mentioned. You take a sip for each finger that points at you.
The most likely ideas include:
- "Be the drunk at the wedding,"
- "Pick someone up at a bar,"
- "Get married next",
- "Losing something tonight,"
- "Move to another country",
- "Make a million euros,"
- "Appear on a reality show",
- "Write a book".
This hen party game is based on the board game Five Second Rule. So if you've ever played, you already know the basics. Each card prompts you to name 3 of something within 5 seconds. For example, you have to name three wedding destinations, three celebrity pairs or three stripper costumes.
If you can't deliver in 5 seconds, it's time to drink!

8. Bar Scavenger Hunt
This is one of our favorite bachelorette party drinking games. Organize all taxis early.
Spice up the evening of the bride with this game. You can put all the chickens on it OR just give the bride the challenge.
Find a man with the same name as the groom and have him take a picture of the bride. +1 for every guy you find.
Find someone from the home country or country of the bride. (+1) Add an extra point if he or she is from your hometown.
If you are in the bride's hometown, you will find people who have attended the same college / school as you. (+1) Add extra points if they were actually in their class.
Find another bachelor or hen party. Ask the brides, bride and groom to pose together. +1
Ask the bartender to come up with a special drink that is "the bride's drink". Then speak the drink at the bar and convince strangers to order it by name (i.e., I have The Amanda). +1 for every person who orders it.
Determine "the bride's song" for the night. Let the DJ play it at any bar. All participants have to sing. +1 every time the song is played. Double points if you play it twice in the same bar! Triple points if you develop a choreographed dance that you all do with the song.
Find objects that unintentionally resemble the male anatomy … you know what! +1 everyone.
Collect marriage counseling. Ask people to write their advice on a napkin. If you want this to be more naughty, change this to wedding night advice. Target really drunk people for the best answers. +1 for every napkin you collect.
The bride has to be carried over the threshold into every bar. Try to recruit a stranger to work, but if necessary, someone in your group can take them with you. You only get points +1 when a stranger does the job!
