No stag do is complete without its share of man madness and with some well-constructed stag do games you are sure of kicking off your night with a laugh. At StagWeb HQ we know a trick or two about how to get the party started (over 12 years we've sent thousands of stags on their merry way and been on more than our fair share of stag jollies) and we've road tested a few games that will show the lads that you've really thought things through and prepared a top night out.
Here's a few of our favourite stag games to get your party started. So suit up, heads down and game on!
Dare cards are easily bought but making your own can be far messier and much more interesting.
You'll need; A bag containing plastic toy soldiers. (see Stag Accessories)
Before the night begins the best man will put all toy soldiers in a bag, each stag then pulls out a soldier at random. That is now his pose. Between pubs or at any random moment the Best Man shouts the command "Assume the position!" and the life-size toy soldiers (stags) must hold the pose of their mini soldier. This is the slightly drunken Rambo of stag party games.
To keep the stag night games rolling you'll need three volunteers. The lads must then engage some fine fillies in conversation dropping in as many song titles as they can before they're rumbled.
The man who gets the most song references in, chooses a shot that the losers have to drink.
You'll need; A pair of knickers (see Stag Accessories)
A really easy game to get going. All the stag party game players 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 (so if there are 15 of you on the stag and there are 8 heads and 7 tails then those holding heads are all safe and the other 7 players go again).
This continues until you have a loser. If it comes down to just two players then the “Decision Coin” will decide the outcome.
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 (to make it more interesting see if you can get the bride-to-be to donate a pair of hers).
You'll need; A set of waxing strips.
These are purely random moments. Every time a member of the party fails a challenge, doesn't take a dare or loses a game get a passing girl to use a waxing strip somewhere on his body. Quick. Painful. Hilarious.
You'll need; Decision coin, alcohol.
This is a simple drinking challenge. The player takes the “Decision Coin” and spins it on a table or bar, he has the time it takes the coin to come to rest to drink his pint. Failure results in a wax attack.
You'll need; Pen and paper, a hat (or an empty pint glass will also do) and some shots.
Each player writes a secret about themselves on a piece of paper, folds it up and drops it into the hat or glass. The first player picks a secret out of the bag and tries to guess whose secret it is.
If they guess right then the person they guessed has to take a shot. If they guess wrong then they have to down the shot.
A slight variation on “Toy Soldiers”. Write a set of jobs, animals, objects and famous people on strips of paper and then put them in a hat or pint glass. Each player then picks a piece of paper at random which becomes his pose.
Everytime the Best Man shouts “Who are ya?” everyone in the group has to strike their pose.
Ideas; T-pot, Usain Bolt, robot, Elvis, Mo Farah, frog, bus driver, David Brent (The Office), Freddie Mercury, peeing dog, the laying hen, air guitar, pole dancer, Michael Jackson.
You'll need; A bunch of stupid but relatively fit blokes
Time to move on to the next bar.
Assemble the group outside and split them into even numbered teams and tell them which bar is to be your next port of call.
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.
