While the shower is often thought of as the traditional place to play organized games, your bachelorette party is absolutely fair game for them too (no pun intended). The key to pulling off a few fun, organized bachelorette party games is to keep them short, make the rules straightforward and ensure any game you choose can be played with a glass of champagne in hand. Check out our five favorite bachelorette party games below.

1. Bachelorette Party Categories Game

This game is a play off of the game Kings, except with wedding- or bachelorette-party-related topics. 

What to Prep

Come up with several (5 to 10) wedding- or bachelorette-related categories and write them down on separate note cards. Make them as easy or difficult as you want. Your topics could be anything from wedding dress designers to types of flowers and famous wedding movies. If you want to go more R-rated, add a few saucy categories you think the group can handle.

How to Play

Everyone takes turns choosing a card. Whomever's turn it is to choose a card then has 10 seconds to name an item in that particular category. If the player can't think of one item for that category, they're out (or they have to take a sip of their drink!). 

2. "Finish Their Sentence" Bachelorette Party Game

This bachelorette party game is like The Newlywed Game, but without both soonlyweds there.

What to Prep

Ask the bride's partner to write down a few things about her, with your help. For example, "I love when I come home and [their name] is ______."or "My favorite thing to do with [their name] is ______ because ______." See where we're going with this? 

Once you have all of the sentences, write or print out the parts of the sentence you have on cardstock. Make enough extra cards for each guest to fill in how they think her partner would complete the sentence. If you want to make the game into more of a game show, buy two whiteboards and dry-erase markers and have everyone write down their answers at the same time.

How to Play

Read each of the sentences aloud, emphasizing the blank/s. Then have all players write down their fill-in-the-blank answers and take turns reading them out loud to the group. Keep a score of the guests who get the answers closest to the truth.

3. The Lingerie Guessing Game

Everyone brings a piece of lingerie they feel describes their personality to gift to the bride, then the bride guesses who gave each one.

What to Prep

Let each guest know ahead of time to bring a bra, panties, bodysuit or teddy to the party as a gift. Distract the bride while you hang each one around the room.

How to Play

Once everyone's, ahem, contributions are on display, have the bride walk around surveying each piece and write down who she thinks brought it. See how many she can get right. Up the stakes a bit and have her take a drink for each one she gets incorrect.

4. "Never Have I Ever"

Here's one of the most classic bachelorette party games in the bunch. Each player takes a turn completing the phrase "Never have I ever…" with a true statement. The rest of the group has to take a drink if the statement isn't true for them.

What to Prep

Nothing!

How to Play

Take turns coming up with deeds you've never done. With this game, the more scandalous, the better—depending on your crowd, that is. (For example, "Never have I ever had sex in public.") If anyone actually has done the mentioned deed, they have to take drink. If only one person drinks, the rule is that person has to reveal all the details. Obviously if it's an all-ages and coed party, tame the tone a little to suit your crowd.

5. Sexy Bachelorette Party Treasure Hunt

Think of this as the classic scavenger hunt's saucier cousin.

What to Prep

Hide sexy props—whatever you're into—throughout the house, backyard or wherever you're throwing the party.

How to Play

Divide guests into teams and give them a list of items to find. The team that finds the most items wins! Up the challenge (and fun) and gives guests clues instead of item names, such as "something adventurous for the bedroom."
