Where to Buy Bachelorette Party Games
There are dozens upon dozens of bachelorette party games out there, so choosing the right one for your celebration can be tough. That's why I created a list of retailers I love for fun and trendy games to play at a bachelorette party.
- Amazon: This popular online store has lots of bachelorette game options, but the customer reviews can help guide you to the best one for you. I love how Amazon allows customers to add photos to their reviews and features products everyone is buying (for example, "300+ people bought this week") so you can make a more informed decision.
- Etsy: Whether you want a custom or ready-made bachelorette game, Etsy has everything you need. Many Etsy sellers handmake their products, which will give your game a unique feel.

- Zazzle: For groups who want to DIY their party as much as possible, try Zazzle. You can find tame and saucy printable bachelorette party games everyone will love.
Fun Bachelorette Party Games
Each of these games causes delightful chaos that'll create core memories for every partygoer. This is exactly why they're fun.
1. Mean Girls Bachelorette Party Game
You need this Mean Girls-inspired card came for an evening of unforgettable fun. Each player receives a "Burn Book," which gets passed around the group. Players take turns writing one secret about their friends. Once all the questions are answered, everyone takes turns guessing who wrote what. The goal is to keep your secrets totally anonymous. As the famed Toaster Strudel heiress would say, "That's so fetch!"
2. Custom Bachelorette Jenga
This fun bachelorette party game requires creativity and planning before the getaway begins because you can add five to 10 custom blocks to the stack. Consider writing things that call out the to-be-wed, "Group shot" or " Give a shocking confession."
Arrange the blocks in a tower and take turns pulling one from the stack. As you play the game, complete whatever task is on your Jenga log until the tower falls.
3. "How Well Do You Know the Bride?" Bachelorette Game Idea
Do you really know the bride? Find out with this exciting bachelorette party trivia game. Create a long list of questions that'll allow guests to flex their knowledge about the to-be-wed. Whoever wins has bragging rights forever.
4. Minute to Win It Bachelorette Party Game Idea
Based on the popular game show, get everyone's competitive sides out with team or individual challenges, which must be completed in one minute. There are dozens of games you can choose from, which makes it great for big groups. One game you can try is "Face the Cookie." The player puts a small (Oreo-sized) cookie on their forehead and tries to wiggle as many cookies as possible down to their mouth without using their hands.
Bachelorette Party Drinking Games
Below, you'll find the best pregame-approved bachelorette party bar games to play before you hit the town or during a night in. Grab your favorite bubbly, wine or liquor, and prepare for a good time with your crew.
5. Tipsy Land Bachelorette Drinking Game
Based on the childhood game Candy Land, Tipsy Land is guaranteed to leave the whole group buzzed and ready to party. Go around the board and get ready for a unique bonding experience.
6. Drinko Bachelorette Drinking Game
Your bachelorette weekend doesn't need a fun drinking game, but it doesn't hurt to have one. If you're looking to buy one, try this Drinko set. Fill the included shot glasses with a beverage of your choice and have guests drop tokens down the pegs—they get to drink from whatever cup it lands in.
7. Processco Pong Bachelorette Drinking Game
Who doesn't want to relive the glory days of college beer pong? Instead of launching ping pong balls into red plastic cups, elevate your party with these plastic prosecco glasses.
8. Truth or Drink Bachelorette Game Idea
The truth always comes out…that's the motto for any bachelorette party drinking game. Create a list of clean and dirty questions before the event and have your crew spill their secrets or take a sip to plead the fifth. You never know what you'll learn about your besties during this easy bachelorette party game.
9. Shot Roulette Bachelorette Game Idea
This game isn't for the faint of heart (or lightweights). Before the trip, stock up on plenty of mini-shot bottles of all flavors. Arrange them in a large circle and put one bottle in the middle. Take turns spinning the shooter and take a shot of whatever liquor the cap points to. To up the surprise factor, put the drinks in mini red solo cup shot glasses so people don't know what flavor they'll get.
10. Never Have I Ever Bachelorette Game Idea
There's no denying this game is a must for any night out, but especially for a bachelorette bash. Starting with the bride-to-be, go around in a circle saying things you've never done. Whoever has done it takes a drink, and the game continues around the circle. Keep going until you run out of ideas or you're out of alcohol, whichever comes first.
11. Thunderstruck Bachelorette Game Idea
This easy bachelorette party game is a memorable way to pregame with a great playlist before you go out. Start by playing "Thunderstruck," by AC/DC. Sitting in a circle and starting with the bride-to-be, one person takes a drink every time you hear the word "thunder." But here's the catch: you keep drinking until you hear it again then the next person in the circle takes over. Go through the entire song if you can (and hope you don't get stuck with that dreaded guitar solo).
DIY Bachelorette Party Games
You don't have to purchase every activity for the bach party. Some of the best bachelorette party games are free and easy to create. A few require pre-party prep, so take notes of your favorite ideas so you can plan ahead of time.

Send everyone out on a scavenger hunt while out on the town. This template comes with its own fun tasks like "Get a piggie back ride from a stranger," but you can also customize it to say whatever you'd like.
14. The Newlywed Game
It's not a bachelorette party without The Newlywed Game. Before your trip begins, have the host text or email the bride's partner a list of questions about their relationship. Ask the bride the same questions at the party, and compare them to what their S.O. said. If the answer is right, the group drinks—but if the answer is wrong, the bride drinks.
15. PowerPoint Party Bachelorette Game Idea
You might have seen this creative party idea on TikTok. If you're planning a night in for your bachelorette party, ask each guest to come prepared with a PowerPoint presentation on any topic. (The more out of the box, the better.) Search the hashtag #PowerPointNight on TikTok to find ideas for topics. Or, to make it more personal, choose topics related to your friends, like "Who's Going to Cry Most at the Wedding" or "What Your Scandal Would Be If You're Famous."
16. Pin a Kiss Bachelorette Game Idea
Test your directional awareness skills with this bachelorette-friendly version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Bring a large cutout of the bride-to-be's partner and tape it to a wall. Each player receives a kiss cutout before being blindfolded and spun around. The player who sticks their kiss closest to the lips wins the game.
17. Ring Scavenger Hunt Bachelorette Game Idea
Hide plastic diamond rings throughout your venue before guests arrive. Each time someone finds a ring, they receive a prize. Not only is it super easy, but this clean bachelorette party game will also have your guests on the hunt for the entire celebration.
18. Adult Pictionary Bachelorette Game Idea
Looking for an R-rated bachelorette party game? I've got just the idea for you. Give the classic Pictionary game a fun twist by preparing plenty of naughty prompts. Not only will you get to see which friend is the most artistically challenged, but you'll also see who has the dirtiest mind.
19. Pizza Box Toss Bachelorette Game Idea
A night out isn't complete without pizza, and you can turn a spare box into a game if you're looking for something fun to do as you snack. With the pizza gone, toss a coin into the box and draw a circle of any size around it. Then, write a task inside—you can write anything from "Truth or Dare" to "Show off your best dance move." Take turns tossing coins and adding tasks. If your coin toss lands inside another circle, you must do whatever the command says.
Bachelorette Party Card Games
I love card games because they require little to no setup and typically have easy rules. Try these games out for a chill bach night or a way to start the festivities.
20. Cads About Matrimony Bachelorette Card Game
This is extremely similar to the famous Cards Against Humanity game, but this set focuses on themes of marriage and love. It's vulgar (in a fun way) and hilarious making it the perfect thing to help everyone get to know each other better. The game comes with 420 cards, which means you can play as long as you want, and ideally is for groups of 4 to 12 people.
21. Icebreaker Bachelorette Card Game
This bachelorette party game has six different card packs in one box. You get games like How Well Do You Know the Bride, Truth or Dare, Who's Most Likely To and Would You Rather. This is a great option to inspire conversation and mingling.

This simple dice-and-card game includes hilarious tasks and juicy bachelorette game questions that'll have everyone laughing in no time. I bet guests will be begging you to bring this to future gatherings.

There's no need to sit down and write down dares for each partygoer. This scratch-off card game comes with 20 unique dares that are numbered. This allows the host to look at the key and exclude any ones they don't like.
24. Cards Against Humanity Bachelorette Party Game
Of course, I had to add to the original Cards Against Humanity set. If you're prepared to be left in tears of laughter, buy this popular card game everyone will love. It comes with 600 cards, so you can play each day of the bach weekend and beyond.
25. Lick and Stick Bachelorette Game Idea
For this game, all you need is a deck of cards. The game begins with two players sitting across from each other. With eyes closed, each player selects a card from the deck, licks (or tapes) the back printed side, and sticks it to their forehead with the number facing out. After looking at their opponent's card number, each player must guess if their own card is higher or lower than the other—whoever gets it wrong must take a drink.
