AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
Give your guests a fake story and watch as they try to make others believe it's real! Cheap, fun AND easy to play - find instructions for this great hen night/kitchen tea game below!
HOW TO PLAY
YOU WILL NEED:
Pre-prepared phrases written or printed onto small pieces of paper or card.
Before the hen party or kitchen tea, write down enough phrases that there will be at least one per guest.
Make sure the phrases are suitable for your particular party group (for instance, a kitchen tea with grandparents attending shouldn't have any risqué phrases; whereas a hen's party with topless waiters may be keen on some cheekier topics).
Hand each person a phrase as they arrive at the celebration and explain that they are to try and 'slip it in' to conversation at some point throughout the day/night.
The catch? They must wait 5 MINUTES after saying their phrase before claiming victory! You'll love watching as they try to keep the story going during this time without getting caught out.
FUN EXTRAS FOR THIS HEN/KITCHEN TEA GAME:
MAKE IT A COMPETITION
Have prizes for one or all of the following:
INCREASE THE DIFFICULTY
Begin by handing out fairly simple phrases that would work well in everyday conversation (e.g. I took my dog for a walk today). Once a guest has successfully slipped the 'beginner' phrase into conversation, they are handed an 'intermediate' phrase (e.g. I want to show off my hula-dancing at some point tonight, or, I've been selected to play AFLW!). Continue handing out phrases that are harder and harder until the person (finally!) gets caught out!
Using the competition option from above, give a prize to the guest at the highest level of difficulty by the end of the celebration.
GUESTS CHOOSE THEIR STORY (UNKNOWINGLY!)
On your hen party or kitchen tea invites, ask guests to write down the most out-there phrase/story they can think of (give them an example to help them on their way). Ask that it is brought to the celebration.
As they arrive at the party, read their phrase/story, have a giggle to yourself, and explain the rules as above. It will be hilarious watching them try to fit their ridiculous phrase/story into conversation!
NOMINATE A STORY TELLER
Rather than everyone having their own phrases to slip into conversation - keep it to one or two guests at the party. That way, everyone knows that the game is happening - but they have no idea who is trying to trick them. Makes it a bit harder to be found out...!
