A best man should invest a lot of his energy into planning an epic stag party. You can start by picking a destination and some cool activities, and then think about some games to keep your guests entertained. If your stag do is near Christmas this can open up a lot of other interesting things to do, whilst making you feel festive too.
This article provides you with a few cool ideas of drinking games for the pub, but also with games to keep you entertained over the whole weekend.
At the beginning, if the party, everyone is given a toy soldier. Throughout the entire duration of the stag do, all stags need to get into the assumed position, as soon as they hear the ‘assume the position’ command. The last individual to get into position will be the loser.
Pick one of the participants to be the shark spotter. They have to shout ‘shark attack’ at random, everyone needing to drop to the floor. The last one to do it needs to drink one glass bottoms-up and will become the next shark spotter.
Get An Accent
You go to a pub, and each of you chooses a different accent to speak in. The one who forgets using his accent is out of the game.
Find the Bride
All participants have the whole weekend to find a woman with the same name as the future bride. The ones who fail are subject to a penalty.
Know Your Movie Quotes
You enter a bar, approach a group of girls, and start a conversation. You have to drop in as many movie quotes as you can, without anyone noticing that. The one who manages to drop in the most quotes without being aught will be declared the winner. He’ll need to nominate one of your buddies to do a forfeit.
Who Are Ya?
The best man prepares some tiny pieces of paper, writing the name of a celebrity, an animal, or an object on each one. Next, he puts all bits of paper in a glass bowl, and invites everyone to extract one piece at random. Whenever the best man shouts ‘who are ya?’ everyone needs to adopt the pose corresponding to their person, animal or object.
The members of the group are split into two teams, and each individual is given a pint of beer. The first person in each team starts drinking. As soon as he finished the glass, the second person starts drinking theirs, and so on, until the last member of each team finished his glass. The team that finishes first is the winner.
A pub golf can be much more entertaining than your regular pub crawl. If you don’t know this game, here’s how it goes:
Each pub is considered as being a hole. Everyone needs to have a drink in each of the pubs, the number of mouthfuls required to finish it is the par. You give everyone their own scorecard to write down their own results. When you’re done, you compare them. Whoever has the lowest score wins the competition.
Each of you holds a coin and waits for the best man to shout ‘knickers’. Next, all of you open your hand to reveal your coin. Count the number of heads and tails. The group members with the highest number of corresponding faces are considered safe. The others repeat the game. Next, you repeat it over and over again, until there’s only one person left. This is the loser, and he needs to wear knickers over the trousers until you reach the next pub, where you start playing the game once more.
Only The Left-Hand Matters
The rule of this game is that all stags have to use solely their left hand to hold their drinks. Whenever someone is spotted using the right hand, he needs to down their drink.
At any given time, any of the stags can freeze without having to announce it to the group. Everyone who notices this needs to freeze as well. The last one who freezes has to do a forfeit.
Now that you know your games, all you have to do is to take care of everything else!
