Funky shot glasses, bottle(s) of spirits, water.

How to play...

  1. Line up a set of shot glasses (enough for each hen)

Drink if...

Full glasses

How to play...

  1. The games master should prepare some risqué questions for the hens to confess to. Such as "Have you ever had sex in a public place?"
  2. The questions can be as tame or as wild as you like.
  3. The games mistress (you) will then ask for people to confess until all the girls have pleaded guilty (or are too drunk to confess anymore)'ve had sex in a public place.'ve ever slept with a work colleague.'ve ever taken revenge on an ex.'ve been caught having sex.'ve caught someone else having sex.'ve ever been in trouble with the police.'ve ever lied to a boyfriend. own more than 20 pairs of shoes.'ve ever flirted with your boss.'ve used your feminine charms to get what you want.'ve had a toyboy.'ve kissed someone 15 years older than you.'ve kissed someone younger than you.
