Along with the original Mystique titles, PlayAround also released a number of their own adult-themed games. This game basically sounds like a very bad first attempt at an adult video game.

Bachelor Party consists of two game versions, each with a one- or two-player option. With the power switch off, gently insert your Mystique video game cartridge into your Atari or Sears console in the same manner as you would with any ordinary game cartridge. Turning the switch "on" will activate the "foreplay mode".

This is very similar to the "attract mode" seen on many arcade games. You will hear Auld Lang Syne play. Once the music stops playing you can start the game. Games number 1 and 3 are one-player versions and 2 and 4 are two-player versions. In games 1 and 2 there are two rows of 4 women in each row. Games 3 and 4 are more difficult in that there are two rows of 8 women in each row, and they slowly advance during play.

Use the "game select" switch on your console to select your game choice. The number of the game appears on a colored stripe above the Mystique name, near the bottom of the screen. Use the paddle controller plugged into the left had socket of your Atari console. Once you have selected the game, either depress the "game reset" button on your console, or the red "fire" button on the paddle control. This will start the "play" mode. The musical theme is then repeated. At the end of the music press the "fire" button again and the first bachelor will be released. Turning the knob on the paddle control clockwise will cause the Spanish Fly (the paddle on the left side of the screen) to move down, turning it counter-clockwise causes the Spanish Fly to move up.
