    One of the favorite games for hens night is a game called Banned Words.  This is a game that is generally started at the beginning of the evening.  The rules are explained and the consequences established.  Once everyone understands then the game commences and continues through the end of the evening.  The rules of the game are pretty simple.  The hostess of the party thinks of some common words or phrased she thinks may be used a lot during the night.  She then bans them from use.  Words such as “wedding”, “marriage” and “husband” are great choices in words to be banned but they can be just about anything.  If someone gets caught using one of those words throughout the night, they have to pay the consequences.

    Consequences can be anything from having to take a drink to paying a fine or doing a dare.  Use your imagination to come up with something fun that will be enjoyable for all.  Another of the great games for hens night is a bit of a bawdier game that is perfect for in home parties.  Make a Man is a cooperative game that can be done using teams or individuals if it is a small party.  Each person or team is given a lump of clay and a designated male body part.  Without looking at each other or talking they have to mold the man out of clay.

    Each body part is then given to the bride for assembly into a complete man.  This can be really funny as nobody discussed sizes.  So the end result can be a pretty hilarious sculpture.  Make sure to take a picture for posterity!  This is one of those games for hens night that is enjoyable for all and can be really funny.  It also promotes teamwork if everyone is working in groups.
