Joint Hen And Stag Do Games

Facilitator of Fun - Laughtercise For Hen Parties

Big question…who are the fastest, your brides hens or your grooms stags? ⚡

Find out by getting stuck into the below!



What is a combined hen and stag do called?


A combined hen and stag is often called a STEN party. A STEN party is a great way for the brides hens and grooms stags come together for one giant pre-wedding party! 😁 A STEN party is also a great way to save on costs.


What are good joint hen and stag do games?


Good joint hen and stag do games are ones that create competition, smiles and giggles; games that decide if the stags or hens are the fastest! ⚡🏆 An example of a good joint hen and stag do game is ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees, CUP!’ which creates fun and exhilaration!

Below are instructions to this game and another game called ‘Tissue Mayhem!’

These games have been tried and tested on thousands and thousands of people in our Laughtercise Team Building Sessions & Laughtercise for Hen Party Sessions.


What impacts will you see from these STEN games? Huge beaming smiles on the faces of your hens and stags and loud belly laughter! 😁


Joint Hen & Stag Do Games


Heads, Shoulders, Knees, CUP!


⚠ WARNING ⚠ This game creates a huge amount of competition!  

Check out several teams playing it during Laughtercise Team Building Sessions 👇




📍 Instruct each hen to face a stag

📍 Tell everyone that you will be shouting out ‘head’, ‘shoulders’ and ‘knees’ and they have to follow the instruction

📍 Tell everyone that when you shout ‘cup’ they have to grab the cup. First person to grab it wins!

📍 After the first game, rotate everyone so they keep facing a different opponent

📍 For small groups, you can play the game until everyone has faced each other

📍 Tell everyone to keep count of how many battles they win!

📍 Crown the winner…hens or stags!

You will need:

📍 Cups (1 per two people, but some will break so buy spares!)

📍 To line up tables so everyone can be facing each other (like in the video)


Tissue Mayhem!


This game is mayhem. Pure mayhem.

⚠ WARNING ⚠ This game creates a huge amount of mess!

After you all play this game, the room will look like the stags bedroom before he met the bride! 😂 You’ll see why below!




📍 Step 1 – You can play this game 1v1, a hen vs a stag. Or a relay, like in the video above

📍 Step 2 – Make sure you get the first tissue ready to be plucked from each box

📍 Step 3 – Instruct everyone that they can only use one hand to remove tissues (one hand to remove the tissues and the other hand on the box)

📍 Step 4 – Instruct everyone that they can only remove 1 tissue at a time

📍 Step 5 – Make sure no one does any digging with their hand to pluck out loads at once!

📍 Step 6 – Make sure everyone goes on your command

You will need:

📍 One tissue box per player (make sure it’s the similar kind of box to the one in the video)

📍 Tables for the tissue boxes to be placed on


And that’s it…two games to have huge fun with! 😁


Who has the strongest pout? Your hens or stags?

Find out by playing our ‘Pencil Pouting’ game!

Love Team Laughtercise


Whether you’re looking for a unique hen do idea for your hen crew or a corporate team building workshop for your team, a Laughtercise session is all about creating as many smiles and laughter in your group as humanely possible!

We’ve scoured the world for the best exercises, activities and games that bring out smiles and giggles.

We would love to tell you that we’ve invented loads of activities but we haven’t invented ANYTHING. We’ve taken the best that exists, combined it together and made it better…our very own original recipe.

Simple ideas, simple games, all facilitated expertly.

We deliver sessions in-person or online.

Is your room small? Is it large? Inside? Outside? We’ll be there! We will work around you.

For team building sessions, we can come to your office or away day location. For hen parties, we can come to your accommodation or a private room that you’ve booked.

📍 Our Corporate Team Building Workshops vary from 10-minute energising conferences sessions to full away day sessions of 4hs

📍 Our Corporate Wellbeing Workshops can vary in length from 1hr to 3hrs

📍 Our Online Team Building Workshops can vary in length from 30mins to 1.5hrs

📍 For online sessions, the attendee limit is 1000.

📍 For in-person sessions, the only limit is how much room you have (the more the merrier!)

Our prices vary depending on the number of attendees, how long the session is for and where the session is held.

We can guarantee you this though…in terms of bang for buck, you’ll get a sonic boom 💥

Let’s get some time to discuss, get in touch 😀

Our Corporate Team Building Workshops have been described as ‘the most fun I’ve ever had at work’ by Amazon employees and in a recent NHS study, 77% of NHS session attendees reported feeling less stressed after their Laughtercise session.

Hens love Laughtercise too 👇

“It was so good, everyone loved it. We all highly recommend, the Laughtercise Team are an absolute dream. It was INCREDIBLE”

But the only way to truly find out, is to dive in and get smiling! 😁

We will rock your world ⚡

Yes, loads!
