10 Best Couple Games Ideas for You
Whatever it may be, you’ve come to the right place because here’s a list of 10 incredibly fun games which won’t just make time fly with your significant other, but will also be sure to spark some great conversations and have you doubling over with laughter!
- Fog of Love
Fog of Love is essentially a game of role-playing where both the players create characters, which meet, fall in love, and then make their way through the struggles of a real-life relationship!
In the game, both the players are provided with cards that describe certain real-life scenarios along with possible reactions. If the players are on the same page about their relationship and its problems, then the game will ultimately end in unconditional love. By contrast, if conflicts arise, the relationship could be headed towards a messy breakup!
From dumb fights in restaurants to visits from unwelcomed family members, this game truly allows the players to navigate a relationship through the characters they play. It will be sure to take you on a roller coaster of emotions and definitely pull your relationship out of the rut! This game also assumes no gender roles, making it perfect for couples of all types.
- Personalized Jenga
Jenga is a super fun classic game in which you stack up wooden boxes in rows of 3, each row being perpendicular to the other. The players take turns in trying to remove a box from the bottom and placing it at the top while trying to ensure that the tower stays upright. If the tower falls when it’s your turn then mate, you lose!
To take this game to the next level though, you can write down fun dares or questions on a couple of the wooden blocks that you’ll have to perform/answer if they’re picked out. It could be anything from prank calling a friend to reveal your most embarrassing moment! Go wild, have fun with it, and set a prize for the winner!
Star crossed is another version of Jenga in which the players get to role play with characters whose fate is doomed! With the removal of blocks, characters are built up and relationships are explored. Despite how much the characters want to be with each other, the game forces them apart. Unless the tower falls which will allow you to act upon your feelings!
- A Treasure Hunt
Whether you’re the one planning or the explorer, a treasure hunt is not only a great way to pass time but will also be an incredibly sweet way to show your significant other how much they really mean to you! Depending on how it’s planned, you can use it to apologize after a fight, ask someone to move in with you, or even propose!
The best part about this is that you could either do it from the comfort of your own home or go out into town. Just pick out a few spots that hold a special place in your hearts and use them to hide clues to the next spot. A fun addition would be to also hide little clues of what the ultimate surprise is going to be, so for example if you want to ask someone to move in with you, hide figurines of a house or keys, etc!
Instead of a gift, your ‘treasure’ could also be a cute date night picnic set up! The options with this one are truly endless but one thing’s for sure, it’ll have your significant other beaming with joy.
- Never have I ever
Never have I ever is the perfect game for those chilled nights when you want to sit back on your sofa with a drink in your hand and just spend some quality time with your significant other! The concept is simple, one of you reads a statement out loud beginning with the phrase “Never have I ever” such as, “Never have I ever snuck out” and if you’re guilty of the act, you have to take a shot.
If drinking is not your thing then you could simply play this game with cards that read “I have” and “I have never” or any other snack of your choice. This game is a great conversation starter and who knows, you might even spill a couple of untold secrets!
- Romantic Scrabble
Scrabble is the perfect game for all of the intellectual and competitive couples out there! The object of the game is to form words with the alphabet tiles in your possession on the game board. Each word accounts for a certain number of points and the player with the most points is the winner.
However, when playing with a significant other, it’s a great idea to put a romantic twist on this game! Alter the rules so that you can only form romantic words with the titles given and to make it even more fun, you could re-enact verbs like hugging or kissing!
- Telestrations after dark!
Telestrations gives you the perfect opportunity to have a killer game night with other couples! Each player has to draw a word from the secret list provided in the sketchbook and pass it on to their right. The next person will then write down their guess of what the drawing could be and pass it on. The book keeps getting passed around as players continue to draw and guess whatever they see until it’s returned to the owner!
This game is definitely a couple’s favorite and with the adult version, things can get hilariously inappropriate, very fast!
- Innuendo Bingo Challenge!
Have some towels nearby for this one because this game is sure to have you covered in water and tears of laughter by the end!
Here’s how it goes: The players are required to fill their mouths with water and be seated while facing each other. Then, play funny audio of the innuendo bingo challenge (you can find these online) and try not to laugh. Good luck succeeding with this as chances are, you’re going to be spitting water into the other person’s face within 5 seconds.
An alternative could be to just use funny facial expressions and gestures to try and make the person laugh! Even though you’ll be getting really wet and gross, you can always enjoy a great shower together once you’re done!
- Adult Loaded Questions!
Cards Against Humanity- but make it your own! This is another great game to play with other couples. Players take turns reading out question cards while everyone else writes down their answers. The person with the best answer wins a VIP card and the person with the most VIP cards wins the game. With a line up of hilarious yet inappropriate questions and equally entertaining answers, you’re sure to get a great laugh out of this one!
- Balloon Painting
If you’ve seen princess diaries, you know where we’re going with this- Paint filled water balloons, a big canvas, and some darts! This is a fun, colorful way to not only release stress but also to let go, and get messy for once. It’s a good idea to take this outside (to make the cleaning up process a little bit easier), enjoy the sun, and create a beautiful mess with your loved one. The best part is that once you’re done, you can hang it up around the house and be reminded of your love every time you look at it.
- Speak out
Sometimes, a ridiculous mouthpiece and some silly phrases are all you need to test how well you truly understand each other. The concept of this game is to try to decipher what your partner is trying to say while a mouthpiece holds their mouths wide open, preventing them from properly pronouncing the words.
Once you get done laughing over the fact that they look like they’ve got a leaf blower pointed directly at their faces, it can be quite entertaining to try and understand them. If you’re competitive, this might get a little frustrating at times but the joy of finally getting the phrase right is completely worth it!
Whether you win or lose, the ultimate purpose of playing these games should be to spend some quality time with your significant other. Especially when things get tough, light-hearted games like these can be a great reminder to take a step back, breathe, and just laugh it out together!
