Finding the best romance games for couples can be tough, so we’ve broken down some of our favourites.
Where to start though, for you specifically? We all know love and romance is not just about holding hands or walking in the park, but what type of romance are you seeking? Couples need interesting and fun moments to keep their relationship lively, spark up different topics, learn new things about each other and feel the true connection that is special between you. Games have many benefits and are a great way to do this because they spark creativity, the thinking is largely done for you, a game played this year and again next year might yield different answers and the fun is already built-in for you.
The first step is determining your thoughts on what type of ‘romance games’ you and your partner are actually after. They can be any one of these types, or a combination:
LAUGH TIME GAMES. Light romance really. More about just having a laugh together without daily distractions and have the game help make it possible around adult topics.
INCREASED CONNECTION GAMES. The desire to really get closer together and strengthen the romance and relationship. Talk and share your feelings with each other, be more vulnerable, give positive affirmations and re-spark the romance. More about quality and outcomes.
ESCAPISM GAMES. Where you’re not interested in being serious, you just want romantic role plays and making things up.
ROMANCE = SEX GAMES. Some people just want to set the romantic mood up to initiate sex, or use the game to specify sexual directions to perform.
Following is a shortlist for you, including our TOP CHOICE moniker to make your decision even easier if you’re in a hurry. 👍
