Play Team Sports
As long as the weather cooperates, what could be more natural than getting the guests together for a game of football or basketball?

It's always fun to play a round of bocce or throw a frisbee and a great way to get everyone involved in a bachelor party game.

I'm not saying you have to gamble the day away, but Cards Against Humanity or some variation can give everyone the opportunity to feel evil instead of doing wrong. New variations like Bad People or You've Got Problems will work of your gang has already done the CAH thing to death.
Low Tech Games
You don't need a board game or a deck of cards in order to have fun. Have everyone write down on a piece of paper what the bachelor won't be able to do ever again after he gets married. For example; get a lap dance. say "I'd hit that", stay out all night, leave up the toliet seat, that sort of thing. Pick a guy to read out loud random slips and let the groom figure out who wrote it.
Verbal Games & Competitions
Throwing a roast for the groom would be a hilarious way to celebrate the bachelor with his closest buddies. If you don't think he would get a kick out of being roasted then you can organize a funny story contest; winner would be who could tell the most humorous and embarrassing story about the groom. This is a great icebreaker if many of the guests have never met.
Who knew that one day not only would everyone want to be trapped inside a maze but would get the opportunity to do so. When looking for bachelor party games don't overlook this great activity for groups. Escape from a maze and technology when your group puts down their cellphones and completes this team building exercise in fun. There are roughly 7 different escape rooms in Raleigh and even more in the outer lying areas like Durham - NC Escape has an alien theme room! - Cary and Morrisville, so you will be sure to find a good one near you.
