How to play:

Get your girls to sit around a table in a circle and 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 hen who’s first to lay down their cards facedown calls out something like ‘Two Jacks’; she might be telling the truth, a half truth or a complete lie.

If a fellow hen decides the first hen is lying she says "bluff". The cards are turned over and if the accuser is right she must take her cards back. If the accuser is wrong and the first hen was telling the truth, then she must pick up the cards. Whoever is guilty must be punished; this could be something like downing the rest of a drink, doing a shot or writing down a dare that the hen must do during or after the game.

Later in the game when the cards that the hens are getting rid of are stacking up, this is the pile the bluffer or the accuser who falsely accused a fellow hen must pick up and try to get rid of all over again. The game begins with Aces and goes down through the deck and back to Aces again if the game is still going.

This laugh out loud game will continue until a lucky hen gets rid of all her cards. The ultimate loser can be determined by continuing play until the last two players battle it out for the title of biggest bluffer!

For the ladies that want to chance their luck with a deck of cards, be sure to play Bluff!

If you need some inspiration look into her past such as where she grew up, school, university and her career. It would also be useful to ask her about her ‘favourites’ for example her favourite song. This should be able to provide many questions such as food, TV, hobbies and make up!

Whatever line of questioning you go down, double check all the answers with the bride-to-be to avoid any embarrassing moments on the hen party! It would also be a good idea to hand pick the questions so that you are asking your hens the trickiest questions as possible!

So you’ve done the prep, all is left is to be the quiz mistress! You will need pens and paper for every hen. It would be a good idea to break the questions into rounds so that you can reveal the correct answers not long after you have read the question out! Get the hens to swap pages to mark them so there is no cheating! Also this way they will see any ridiculously bad answers from their fellow ladies!

The hen or hens with the most correct answers will have proved they know the bride-to-be the best! Prizes can be given out for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
