AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
Are you after hen or bachelorette party games that are a little bit cheeky and a whole lot of fun?! From secrets to hilarious party moments you'll never forget, this truth or dare game will have your group laughing, gasping and more! For instructions, see below.
HOW TO PLAY THE ULTIMATE 'TRUTH OR DARE' GAME
YOU WILL NEED:
Pieces of paper, pens and some willing participants!
TRUTH OR DARE GAME INSTRUCTIONS:
This is truth or dare (the game that everybody knows and loves)... with an epic twist! To play, start by handing out pens and paper to each of your guests. Ask that they all write down one truth or dare for your bride-to-be to complete during the celebration. Before taking their pieces of paper back, ask that they also sign their name at the bottom (I mean, the hen needs to know who got her into this mess in the first place - it's only fair!).
Now for the fun part. Once you've collected the truth or dare papers from each of your guests, it's time to announce to the group that they are actually completing the truth/dare they wrote down for the bride-to-be, WITH the bride-to-be! Have your wonderful hen read out each of the cards, letting the group know who she will be completing each task with as she goes - cue endless giggles!
Please note: Your bride-to-be has the option to 'pass' if she wishes (just think of a fun 'punishment' for when this happens!).
Also, this game is supposed to be some harmless fun; you don't want people taking it too far. If there are truth or dares that make the bride uncomfortable (or that you don't think are appropriate), take them out. Friends should look out for each other and this shouldn't be an issue, but if you're worried about what the group may write, consider hosting the game using the 'PRE-PLANNED' or 'SPIN THE BOTTLE' method instead (outlined in the next section below).
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY TRUTH OR DARE
BACK TO BASICS:
Rather than changing up the rules (as outlined above), go back to basics and play this game as it was originally intended. How truth or dare is played depends on your group - but usually guests write down questions and/or actions (that is, truth or dares) for your hen to complete one by one throughout the night.
Handy hint: stagger the truth/dare cards so that she's not copping it all at once! And don't forget to bring along a special prize for your bestie - the perfect surprise for when she finally makes it through all of the challenges!
For those of you who want some control over what your beautiful hen will be put through on her night of nights, this option is perfect! Print off or write down different truth and dare cards. Place each individual card in its own envelope (or simply fold it up so that the words cannot be seen), and then drop them into a bowl.
As guests arrive, ask them to pick one out - but explain that they are not to open their selection until later. Once everyone is there, gather the group together and make the announcement that the envelopes actually contain truth/dare cards - and the one they picked from the bowl is the truth/dare they must complete with the bride-to-be at some point during the party. Have each guest read out their card to the giggling group!
SPIN THE BOTTLE:
To prepare, write down some fun/slightly cheeky truth or dare cards (it's a good idea to put one truth and one dare option per card, meaning the person who gets it has a choice between the two). If you wish, you can also make up some 'safe' cards (i.e. the person who gets these doesn't have to complete a truth or a dare). Place them all into individual envelopes ready for the big day.
When it comes time to play, use the envelopes to create a circle and place one bottle (wine that you've already polished off works a treat!) in the middle. Guests then take it in turns to 'spin'; opening the envelope that the bottle ends up pointing to (or the closest to it). They then have three choices: do the dare, talk the truth, or pass. If they pass, give them a pre-prepared penalty (such as doing an impression of the hen!) and move on to the next person.
