Tip #17: A Couple More Games

You girls are probably surprised I haven’t run out of games to talk about yet, huh? Well, believe me, I have plenty I’ve played to talk about what’s worked and what hasn’t. I could probably make this blog just about games and go on forever. But I don’t want to bore you, so I’ll make this my last post about games, at least for a while, and we’ll get back to other tips next time. I just remembered a couple of games that I really wanted to post about before we moved on.

The first one is one of my all-time favorite bar games, hands down. A little disclaimer, these aren’t just regular card or coin games I’m going to be talking about in this post, but I think this one is well worth the money. It’s only $10, after all. It’s called the
Male Stereotypes Game.

I’ll try to explain it as best I can without giving too much away, because you really have to play this game to understand what’s so great about it. There are 36 cards in the game set, each depicting a stereotypical male - from the geek to the frat boy to the metrosexual. You give each girl a card (or more, if you want to play multiple rounds) and give them an hour to find the stereotype on their card. Bars aren’t the best place for this, because some stereotypes are much more common there than others, but if you’re out in a popular downtown area you should give your girls free reign to look all over the area for their targets (just make sure they don’t get lost!) Each card has some questions for the girls to ask their man, and dares to perform with him, and they get points based on what they do. Then, when time is up, the girls who have the most points win! It might not sound too spectacular, but trust me, I know from personal experience that running around looking for a tree hugger or a sports fanatic and asking him to do some of the crazy things on that sheet is super fun. This is one game I would suggest you do before the girls are too tipsy, though, so they don’t get lost, or worse, leave the party to be with one of the more desirable stereotypical males...

A game that gets more fun when you’re drunk, though, is this next one -
Bachelorette Mad Libs.

I saw a mad libs book at the book store the other day when I was doing some last-minute christmas shopping and it made me remember when I played this at a friend’s bachelorette party and so I had to include it in this post. I don’t think I need to explain what mad libs is, everyone loves them. So really all I have to tell you is that some of the ones in here are especially good for girls thinking the way we always are at bachelorette parties. A great thing about this, now that I’m thinking about it, is that it’s versatile, you could have a fun time with it even if you keep things clean. But if you don’t, well, you can imagine all the hilarious possibilities.

Alright, like I said, that’s it for games now. Unless some really good idea comes up in my head between now and next time, the next post will be about something else, I promise.
