Below, you'll find fun bachelorette party drinking games to play before you hit the down or during a night in at your Airbnb or rental. Grab your favorite bubbly or liquor and prepare to have the time of your life with your crew.

Truth or Drink

The truth always comes out… that's the motto for any bachelorette party drinking game. Create a list of fun (or dirty) questions before the bach getaway 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 fun bachelorette party game.

Beer Pong

Relive the glory days of college with this classic bachelorette party drinking game. All you need are red solo cups, a few ping pong balls and a beverage of your choice. (Try swapping beer with spiked seltzers or champagne if that's what you're into.) Arrange your group into teams and show off your best trick shots for a fun night in.

Shot Roulette

This bachelorette party drinking game isn't for the faint of heart. 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 you don't know what flavor you'll get.

Lick and Stick

All you need for this easy bachelorette party game 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 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 has to take a drink.

Never Have I Ever

There's no denying this game is a must for any girl's night, 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 idea (or you're ready to tap out).

Thunderstruck

How about a bachelorette party drinking game set to music? This easy game is a memorable way to pregame with a great playlist before you hit the bars for a fun night 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 have to keep drinking until you hear it again when 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. In fact, some of the best bachelorette party games are free and easy to create on your own. Here, we share the best DIY bachelorette party games that are always crowd-pleasers. Some require pre-party prep, so take notes of your favorite ideas so you can plan to play ahead of time.

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 fiancé 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.

PowerPoint Party

You might have seen this fun 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 crazier, the better.) Search the hashtag #PowerPointNight on TikTok to find some ideas of topics to present on. 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." This free bachelorette party game will have everyone crying from laughter.

Pin a Kiss

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 fiancé 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.

Ring Scavenger Hunt

If dirty bachelorette party games aren't your thing, this cute bachelorette scavenger hunt is just what your party needs. Hide plastic diamond rings throughout your rental or hotel room before guests arrive. Each time someone finds a bauble, they receive a prize. Not only is it insanely easy, this clean bachelorette party game will have your guests on the hunt for the duration of your celebration.

Adult Pictionary

Looking for an R-rated bachelorette party game? We'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 best friend is the most artistically challenged, you'll also get to see who has the dirtiest mind too.

Bachelorette Bingo

While you can buy a printable version of bachelorette Bingo, you can also do it yourself (especially if you're the creative type). Prepare a few sheets before you depart on your trip and hand them out as soon as everyone is together to make the most of this DIY bachelorette party game.

Jeopardy

Test your friends' knowledge by making a custom Jeopardy game to play during the bachelorette party. There are plenty of free sites online that'll curate your game board, so prepare the categories ahead of time and see who knows the most about your crew.

Pizza Box Toss

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. But, if your coin toss lands inside a circle that already exists, you'll have to do whatever the command says.

DIY Jenga

This fun bachelorette party game requires a little bit of creativity and planning before the getaway begins. Buy a brand new Jenga set and write tasks on each log. For a bachelorette party, consider writing things like "Finish your drink," "Give a drink," "Group shot" or "Confession." As you play the game, complete whatever task is on your Jenga log until the tower falls.
