Bluff Hen Party Game

Why Play?

Can you keep a poker face during ‘Bluff'? This is one of the best hen party games for starting the celebrations as you mean to continue! The aim of Bluff is for each hen to try to be the first player to get rid of all their cards—but be warned; this game can be won by honesty, bluffing... or both! Knowing when to be virtuous or sly is the key to winning!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 deck of cards
  • 1 poker face

How to Play
  • Get your group to sit around a table in a circle.
  • Deal out the full deck evenly to each hen.
  • The aim of the game is to be the first to get rid of your cards.
  • The game will start with the person to the left of the dealer
  • The first player will begin with ‘Aces’. They will call out how many aces they have (e.g. ‘Two Aces’) and place them face down in the middle of the group. If in fact you don’t have any Aces—you must bluff! Say a number of ‘Aces’ (e.g ‘3’) that you want your group to believe you have, and then place the three cards face down— they can be any cards you wish!
  • The game will then progress onto the next player to the left, who will place down how many ‘Ones’ they have, regardless of whether they actually have any ones or not!
  • In the event that a play from a participant seems sketchy to you, call their bluff! Turn over the cards to reveal the truth!
  • If they were in fact bluffing, they must pick up all the face down cards!
  • However; if you were wrong in calling their bluff, you must pick up all the cards instead!
  • The winner will be the player that gets rid of all their cards before everyone else! 

Top Tips
  • Why not add insult to injury through enforcing drinking rules? If someone either gets caught bluffing, or wrongly accuses someone of bluffing—make them down their drink or do a dare! (Need help thinking of a dare? check out our Hen Party Dares page for inspiration!)
  • The ultimate loser can be determined by continuing play until the last two players are left battle it to avoid the unflattering title of the worst bluffer!

Bluff is a tactical card game that will give you and your girls a chance to practice their poker faces! Try this game and find out which of your friends cannot be trusted!
