No stag do is complete without some wild, wacky and slightly outrageous party games for you all to enjoy. Throw in some friendly competition, some party games and ‘I’m sure you will be laughing for years to come.
Planning the ultimate stag do is one of the most important best man duties. Once you have decided on a venue or destination and picked loads of awesome activities, you might want to start thinking about some games to keep everyone entertained.
All Steps first dance have listed some of the most hilarious and entertaining games for you and your stags to try during that all important last send off.
1. Toy Soldiers
This one is a classic, tried and tested game for the lads. At the start of the stag do, each stag is given a toy soldier. For the duration of the stag do, whenever the best man shouts ‘assume the position’, all stags have to get into the same position as their toy soldier. The last man to get into position will face a forfeit. I have seen many a stag do’s in town doing this and can honestly say it’s one of our favourites to watch. You could even throw in some fancy dress into there too!
2. Adopt and Accent
Everyone on the stag do has to speak in a different accent. At each pub or bar you go to test out your different accent. Try Irish, French, German or even something a little obscured like Russian. If anyone forgets their accent or is identified as a fake by someone in the bar, then they’re out. The aim of the game is to keep up the accent as long as you can, fail and you will be the one to down another drink.
3. Movie quotes
Approach a group of girls in a bar and start a conversation, dropping in as many movie quotes as possible without them noticing. Whoever can drop in the most without being caught is the winner and can nominate one of the other stags to do a forfeit. Forfeits can be anything you like. Something a little tame or completely wild, it’s up to you.
4. Classic ol’ Beer Pong
Prepare the beer pong table by filling the cups (use the number of cups to suit your group size), half of the cups should be filled with beer or other stag friendly drinks. Fill the cups low enough so the players can see what’s inside from the throwing line. Players then take it in turns to bounce the ball on the table, whatever they hit they must down in one. Any player fails to get a ball in a cup three times in a row must down the drinks!
A really easy game. All the stag party put a coin in the palm of their hand. When the best man says the word “Knickers” all the players open their palms to show their coin. The best man then counts up how many are showing heads and how many are showing tails. The players with the highest number of corresponding faces showing are safe while the rest play on. This continues until you have a loser. If it comes down to just two players then it comes down to a coin toss. The loser has to put the knickers on over his trousers and keep them on until the next bar when the game is played again. Total embarrassment and laughs gained on this one.
6. Last Man standing
At any point during the evening if a groom sits down on the ground the rest of the stags must do the same. The last man standing must then wear outrageous pants over the top of his trousers until the next time the game is played. But… should a stag sit down and none of the others join in then he must wear the pants.
7. Ben Hur
One of the funniest if we do say so ourselves. When it’s time to moving on to the next bar, arrange your group outside and split them into teams and tell them which bar is to be your next watering hole. Now tell the teams they must decide who amongst them is the lightest, this man is now the ‘charioteer’ and the rest of the team are now the ‘roman chariot’.
Get them under starters orders and on your command the rest of the team must pick up their driver and race to the next bar. They can carry him any way they see fit but the charioteer’s feet must not hit the ground at any time. Pure comedy factor once you’ve all had a few cheeky beers.
8. Last but not least.. NO PHONES
No phones! The rules to this one are pretty straightforward and simple. This is a stag do after all, so all phones should be off limits! When all the lads are together… NO PHONES. Any stag found in breach of this golden rule will have his phone taken off him and handed to the groom who will then send a text to the phone’s entire contact list without the guilty party seeing what is written. Can you imagine a naughty message heading its way straight to the mother in law or boss at work? Great fun for all the stags and hopefully taken in the intent it was meant but the receiver of some weird and wonderful messages.
