I have to admit that I’m totally guilty of spending way too much time on my cell phone. When I go on vacation, I intentionally “cell phone detox,” which means no email, no social media, no texting—and it’s awesome. That said, why not put all our obsessive Instagramming to good use? I’ve updated the traditional “What’s in your purse” bridal shower game for the smartphone generation. Ultimate Bridesmaid presents the What’s in Your Cell Phone game
I’ve created two free printable games for you. One is appropriate for a bridal shower with mixed age groups (i.e., even your mom should be able to play). The second one is designed for a bachelorette party, with questions geared toward the younger crowd that include a few racier requests. I’ve also give you the full list of questions after the jump in case you want to select the questions that you like most and create your own printout.
Don’t just pass out the sheets and let people fill in their scores though. Have the host read each question aloud and then ask guests to share their answers when appropriate. Guests can use their sheet to record their score, but make sure you keep everyone engaged and talking. Share the photos you have to hunt down, make them admit if they have Candy Crush and find out who scores the highest on rounds that award multiple points.

The full list of questions:
__ +3 for the most contacts
__ +3 for the fewest contacts
__ +10 if you have a flip phone
__ +3 if you have a photo of the couple on your phone. Vote on who has the most embarrassing, sweetest or silliest photo (the group’s choice) and award +5.
__ +2 if you have a photo of you and the bride. Be sure to share your favorite with the group.
__ +1 if you’ve already Instagrammed a photo of this party
__ +5 if you have a photo of the bride in a white dress
__ Ask the bride where she and her groom plan to go on their honeymoon. +2 if you have a photo of it.
__ Go into your recently used emojis. +1 for each of the following you’ve recently used: diamond ring, diamond, the bride, bouquet, and the chapel with the heart (the emoji for wedding, of course!)
__ +5 if you don’t have an emoji keyboard
__ -1 if your screensaver features a baby, a pet or your significant other
__ +1 for every contact under Q, X or Z
__ +1 if you have the bride’s wedding date saved in your calendar
__ +1 if you have a restaurant in your contact list
__ +1 if you have a cab service in your contacts (or a cab service app)
__ -1 for each ex’s phone number still in your contacts
__ +2 if the last person you called was your Mom
__ +1 for a dating app
__ +1 if you have a fitness-related app
__ +1 if the last picture you took was of food
__ Text your Mom or Dad and ask them to send you a picture. Whoever’s parent replies first scores +5
__ +1 for every person you have listed under a description rather than their real name, for example “Guy at the Bar,” “Landlord” or “Mother-in-law.” Number must be a personal phone, not a business. Vote on the weirdest and award +5.
__ Ask the bride what song she and her fiancé plan to dance to at their wedding or what “their song” is if they haven’t decided yet. +1 if you have it.
__ -1 if you have Candy Crush
__ +1 for every contact with the same first name as the groom. +3 if you have the groom’s number (and you’re not his mom or fiancée—sorry, ladies!).
