No stag do is complete without some serious (or even hilarious) competition between the guys. Get ready for action with these great stag party games...
See the full list and rules below
You'll need: A bag containing plastic toy soldiers.
Rules: 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.
You'll need: Beer, edible bugs, cups, table, ping pong ball.
Rules: Prepare the bug pong table by filling the cups. Half of the cups should be filled with beer or other stag-friendly drinks, the other cups should be filled with edible bugs. 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 who fails to get a ball in a cup three times in a row must eat a bug.
You'll need: Our list of hilarious questions.
Based on the classic TV show but with far more humiliation for the groom, we’ve split our quiz into five increasingly embarrassing rounds to torture and terrify the groom (“Just wait until we tell your Mrs how you answered!”). You can download or print the full set of questions for free.
You'll need: Cards Against Humanity
Rules: The outrageous gift that keeps on giving! Everyone’s favourite dark and unforgiving card game is a hilarious way to kickstart the evening as you and the boys unleash your inner evil. If you’re unfamiliar with CAH (where have you been living?!), one player will ask a question, and the funniest answer from the rest of the group wins. Twisted, shocking and relentlessly side-splitting!
You'll need: Trunk of Drunk
Rules: Trunk of Drunk is the perfect precursor to that big night out where you and the boys go toe-to-toe against each other across eight classic drinking games. Beer Pong, Ring of Fire, Never Have I Ever, and other hits to get the party started.
You'll need: A pair of knickers.
Rules: A really easy game to get going. All the 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 it’s decided on 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.
Extra: To make it more interesting, ask the bride-to-be to donate a pair of her knickers.
You'll need: These Cards Will Get You Drunk
Rules: Simply take a card from the top of the pile, read aloud and then do as it says. Hilarious challenges and dares, plus the opportunity to get one over on the groom or some of the stags who may or may not have thrashed you at paintball/go karting/whatever activity you went for that day!
You'll need: A pair of outrageous pants.
Rules: At any point during the evening, if a stag sits down on the ground, the rest of the stags must follow suit. The last man standing must then wear the hideous 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.
Extra: If you're sly, you can set it up so that the groom falls foul of the first round, has to wear the pants, and then you simply don't play the game again leaving him stitched up for the rest of the night.
You'll need: A set of waxing strips.
Rules: 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 passer-by to use a waxing strip somewhere on his body. Quick. Painful. Hilarious.
You'll need: A bunch of stupid but relatively fit blokes.
Rules: When it's 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.
You'll need: Eyes in the back of your head
Rules: At any given point in the evening, a stag can freeze completely still. The rest of the stags must follow suit. The last man to spot it and freeze must pay a (pint?) penalty.
You'll need: No phones!
Rules: This is a stag do, so all phones should be off-limits when all the lads are together. 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.
You'll need: Elbows
Rules: Pointing? That's just rude. Pointing with your elbows? That, on the other hand, is just weird. Embrace the weird! For the remainder of the evening, you cannot call another stag by name, instead, you must point with your elbows. Failure to do so... Stag forfeit.
'Spanish Archer' - 'El Bow' See what we did there?
You'll Need: Stag nicknames
Rules: Names... pfft, they're just so last year. Nicknames, that's what you need. Assign all the stags a nickname. Anyone who forgets and uses a stag's real name rather than his stag nickname must face a forfeit.
Did anyone say stag nicknames? Get them here.
You'll need: A set of dare cards
Dare cards are easily bought but making your own can be far messier and much more interesting.
You'll need: Movie knowledge
The Rules: Each player must find some randomers to engage in conversation. The challenge is to get three movie quotes into the conversation without getting rumbled. You can up the ante by deciding which movie the quotes must come from. Any stag who gets caught must pay a forfeit.
You'll need: Music knowledge
The Rules: This game is similar to Oscar Bravo except, this time, it's your song knowledge that will be tested. Each player must find some random people to engage in conversation. The challenge is to get three song lyrics in without getting rumbled. Any stag who gets caught must pay a forfeit.
You'll need: Don't Get Got
The Rules: The Don't Get Got Game is simple… don't get got!!! Each player will get six secret missions to complete where you'll try and trick another player to do something. Be sure to keep your wits about you, who knows when you'll get got good and proper!
You'll need: Colourful Pegs
The Rules:A harmless way to spice up clubbing. Get a load of plastic pegs and assign a colour to each stag. The object of the game is to then attach your colour peg to the clothing of as many strangers as possible without being rumbled. The winner is the person who gets rid of all their pegs! If you don't have enough colours, split into teams.
You'll need: Two truths and one lie each
The Rules: This one works well for big groups with a big mix of stags who may not know each other that well. Each stag must think of three statements/stories which involve him and the groom – two of these will be true and one of these will be a lie. It's then up for the rest to guess. Shots for those who get it wrong!
At StagWeb we love to have a laugh, it’s even better when others are joining in the fun.
