Couple dating games are not just for kids these days. Dating can be hard and sometimes having a bit of fun together is exactly the thing to help make things a little better.

Date nights don’t have to be about going to a fancy restaurant or enjoying a few drinks. Simple games can be fun.

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!

1. 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 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 toward 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.

2.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 revealing your most embarrassing moment! Go wild, have fun with it, and set a prize for the winner!

3. Starcrossed

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!

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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!

7. Telestrations after dark

Telestrations give 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!

8. 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!

9. 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 lineup of hilarious yet inappropriate questions and equally entertaining answers, you’re sure to get a great laugh out of this one!

10. 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.

11. Scrabble

Scrabble is one of the best FREE couple games you can play. We play it a lot because we love word games and it’s a great way for us to challenge each other with our spelling skills.

The best part about Scrabble is that you don’t need any experience or knowledge in a certain area, to play. It doesn’t matter if you’re good at math or music, it’s all about your vocabulary and spelling.

12. Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare is a classic game for couples, and it’s simple to play.

First, you need two or more people who want to play. Then, choose one person to go first. They will ask the other players a question (the truth) or dare them to do something (the dare). The other players must answer truthfully or do whatever they dared to do without question.

If you don’t want to answer the question or complete the dare, you can choose “dare” instead of “truth.” If you choose this option, you will be asked another question or given another dare.

When everyone has had a turn, the next person in line asks their question or gives their dare. Play continues until someone chooses “dare.” At that point, they have to complete whatever they dared to do, even if it means doing something embarrassing.

13. Adult Loaded Questions Game

The Adult Loaded Questions Game is a great way to get to know your partner better. You’ll be surprised by how much you can learn about each other, and how much closer you’ll feel after playing it.

It’s easy! Just roll the dice and ask your partner the question that corresponds with the number you roll. (For example: if you roll a 3, ask them if they’ve ever been arrested.) Then, when it’s your turn again, you have to answer the question yourself before asking another one.

14. Karaoke

Karaoke is the perfect couple game for you and your significant other. You’ll be able to sing along with each other, even if you don’t know all the words. This can be a great way to bond and feel more comfortable with your partner.

If you’re looking for a game that will help you get to know your partner better, karaoke is the way to go. It’s fun and interactive, which means that it makes both of you feel involved in the process. Plus, it can be used as a way to build trust between two people.

15. The Sing-Along Challenge

This game can be played with any song, but we recommend you start with something that’s not too complicated.

If your partner doesn’t know the song, they’ll have a harder time guessing what you’re singing. So pick something by a band that both of you like, or something that’s just fun to sing along to!

The rules are simple: One person sings the first line of the song and then pauses for their partner to guess what they’re singing. After they guess correctly (or incorrectly), it’s their turn to sing.

If they guess wrong and their partner keeps singing? You get three chances before you’re out. The first person who gets out loses and has to pay up, but no matter who wins or loses, this game is sure to bring out some laughter.

16. Checkers

Checkers is the perfect game for a couple. It’s simple enough that you can play it without needing to read the rules, but complex enough that there’s a satisfying level of challenge.

Plus, it’s a great way to spend quality time with your sweetheart, which is always better than spending quality time with yourself.

17. Name That Tune

To play this game, everyone needs to have their phone or music device ready. Then, one person plays a song on their device, and everyone else tries to guess what song it is.

Whoever guesses correctly gets a point! If you’re playing with more than two people, you can either decide on a point system beforehand or just keep track as you go along. The first person to reach 10 points wins.

18. Origami Challenge

This is a great game for couples who are looking to bond over their creativity and their love of paper folding. In this game, you will be given a piece of paper and a set of instructions on how to fold it into a specific shape.

You will then have 30 seconds to make your origami creation before passing it off to your partner.

Once they have finished making their origami masterpiece, you will each judge each other’s work based on originality, execution, and design. The person who wins the most points wins the round.

19.  Monopoly

Monopoly can help you understand more about each other’s financial goals and priorities, as well as how willing they are to sacrifice their own values (like buying properties) in order to help you win.

This might seem like a silly thing that doesn’t matter at all, but trust us: knowing what someone will do when they’re backed into a corner can go a long way toward understanding them as a person.

20. Uno

Uno is a game that you can play with your partner that can be played with one deck of cards.

There are many different versions of the game, but all of them involve trying to match the color or number of cards in front of you and then trying to get rid of cards.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a fun and unique experience to share with your loved one, it doesn’t get much better than playing games together.

As you’ll see in our list of the best couple games above, there’s something for every couple here, whether you’re young, old, straight, gay, or any other identity descriptor. In other words, everyone can find the right game for them.

And if that’s not enough to convince you of the power of these games to strengthen your love life and relationship overall, let me leave you with this: they’ll also keep you connected to your spouse when distance might have ordinarily driven a wedge between you.
