The hen party is a popular pre-wedding tradition for many brides and the women in their bridal party. The hen party is often considered a night of debauchery or a celebration of the bride's last night being single. While there are endless names of specific dare games for hen parties, there are four main categories of these games; drinking games, collection games, scorecard games and Truth or Dare.
Drinking Dare Games
Alcohol is often a popular component to hen parties, making drinking dare games common staples for these celebrations. Alcohol dare games are most popular when the hen parties are held at bars or clubs. Drinking dare games often include daring party attendants to drink different types or quantities of alcohol. These games include daring someone to take certain types of shots or to get drinks bought for them by men. Although there is generally no structure for drinking dare games, they are usually designed to get party goers drinking and excited for the evening, although some games do include keeping track of who drank the most.
Collection Dare Games
Collection dare games dare the women to ask for, or collect, items from strangers they encounter during the party. This often includes asking strangers, usually men, for items of clothing, phone numbers or any personal item they have on them.
Collection dare games also include collecting novelty items from the bars attended during the party such as drinking glasses, martini shakers or signs from the bars. Usually at the end of the night the women tally up who collected the most items throughout the night and award a winner.
Scorecard dare games are one of the most competitive and organised types of bachelorette dare games. To play these games, women attending the party usually come up with a written list of tasks or dares for everyone to complete by the end of the night. Each woman, or teams of two or three women, will try to check off most of the tasks on her scorecard. By the end of the night, the woman with the most points on her scorecard is declared the winner of the game.
The tasks on the scorecard usually include taking pictures with selected individuals, such as people with specific tattoos, dancing with strangers, going behind the bar and serving drinks or switching clothes with men you find in the bar.
Truth or Dare Games
Although Truth or Dare is generally considered a children's game, it is a very popular hen party game. The rules are simple: individuals generally sit in a circle and one by one are asked if they would like to tell a 'truth' or do a 'dare'.
Typically the 'truths' during the hen party version of truth or dare revolve around marriage, sex or relationship topics to honour the wedding-theme of the evening. The 'dares', like with all hen party dare games, can be anything the women in attendance devise. There is generally no winner of loser declared in truth or dare, but is often thought of as a fun bonding activity for hen party attendees.
