Couple Games At Home

Couple Games

Once upon a time you just selected couple games at home for a fun night in, but with self-isolation games for couples now being a need, we thought we’d jump in with some ideas for you and perhaps even some selected extended family (if you have to). Playing couple games at home is an excellent way to pass some time, laugh and make the best of time together be it by choice or through home isolation.

We’ve included free homemade activities, word games, professionally designed games that reduce boredom and hopefully calm self-isolation. There are cheap and easy up to board game favourites and even a couple of cheeky ones like How Game Are You?™ Couples Edition and Dare Duel – A Sexy Truth or Dare Game for Couples. In many cases after these games, you’ll also notice conversation and interaction increases more than usual in the household, and even the bedroom in some cases. Enjoy and read on.

Conversation games for couples at home (or small groups):

  • Take One Game’. A free to play conversation game for a couples game or for anyone which involves finding a small bowl and thinking of one-word answers that each of you come up with and write them on pieces of paper, folded and placed in a bowl.

The ideas can be anything you want from places, home items, tools, adjectives, acronyms, sexy words, body parts and anything in between. Once you have at least 20 or more words, take turns picking an idea from the bowl and say the first thing that comes to mind when you read it. It can be serious, funny, crazy, seductive or scary.

You can add more challenge if you want by needing longer answers of at least 2 sentences, where you have to use the selected word in the opening of the first sentence and near the closing of the last sentence. Alternatively, you can set up a timer or a 30 second alarm on your phone to make it a minimum time someone has to talk or they lose a dollar, or have to do a 5 minute household chore after the game or whatever penalty you want.

  • ‘Favourites Game’. Another free game and simple as everyone has a favorite country, food, place, celebrity, tv show, sport or movie etc. Use these to create a quick conversation game at home, on the road, or just bored waiting in a line.

ONE-FOR-ONE. Write your own topics list or use the one above and work through the list, or separate and place them in a bowl. Player A selects a topic and goes first giving an answer like ‘what they remember about it, why it impressed them and maybe some disappointments about it too’. Each player takes a turn to explain their favourite in the topic. Once everyone has finished, Player B chooses a different topic of interest, for all the other players to answer. You can choose the same topic (e.g. movies) again and again, but always with at least 2 other topics in between to reduce repetition.

ROLLING ON. Player A chooses the topic e.g. ‘Favorite movies’. They answer it then Player B answers and on to any other players in turn and keep going counting how far you got until one player couldn’t answer e.g. 7 answers in total. Player B now chooses another topic e.g. ‘Sports’ and the game continues with everyone taking their turns and hopefully beating the previous answer total. Continue playing to see how far you can get on each topic and which was the winner.

Fun couple games and activities at home:

  • We all know that sometimes one partner in the relationship needs a little help knowing what to plan. This fun and easy couple’s ‘quiz and interview’ idea will get both of you planning a date night that the other would love without even knowing. Each partner takes the pre-made quiz, or makes a blank one for each to create. The interview allows for each of you to answer life questions that will also lead you to knowing what your partner wants out of a date night.
  • Have a fun dessert cook-off. Depending on your respective skills, you can create an easy romantic dessert or something more extravagant, where one person cooks dessert one night and the other person another night and both bathe in enjoyment of the flavours and the love/ effort put into making it. It’s not a competition but more the basis for upping the ante on your enjoyment and skills together. Over time you’ll both expand your cooking repertoire and have a short list of favourites.

If you are in total lockdown or self-isolation, then time to get real creative with whatever limited ingredients you have. If it ends up just being cheese slices for entrée, beans for main and chocolate bar for dessert, put some effort into creating a nice plate decoration, candles, flowers and lighting ambiance. It can be as fun and enjoyable as you creatively make it.

Couple games, card and board games at home:

  • How Game Are You?™ Couples Edition. This is one of the best relationship games for couples because it involves real-life questions that encourage conversations and therefore builds understanding and an enhanced relationship.

It’s a respectful adult board game with questions about general topics, as well as personal and physical intimacy topics.

Over 150 base questions plus 25 bonus questions develop increased emotional and physical intimacy. Laugh and learn together to untap more understanding and connection as each question is answered.

Players take turns drawing cards and selecting words or phrases to create ‘Sexy Dares’ to act out. With hundreds of different words and phrases to choose from, the combinations are almost endless, making every game unique.

Sexual preference doesn’t matter, and players can either enjoy the game with their partner or a group of very close friends.

  • Fog of Love. In this game you’ll create and play two vivid characters who meet, fall in love and face the challenge of making an unusual relationship work.

Playing Fog of Love is like being in a romantic comedy: roller-coaster rides, awkward situations, lots of laughs and plenty of difficult compromises to make.

Much as in a real relationship, goals might be at odds. You can try to change, keep being relentless or even secretly decide to be a heartbreaker. It’s your choice.

The happily ever after won’t be certain, but whatever way your zigzag romance unfolds, you’ll always end up with a story full of surprises.

  • Truth or Dare. The game of candid confessions and daring deeds, this game uses questions as facts and challenges. A classic game is given a new twist, with answers to pop culture questions determining who has to answer the truth or act out a dare.

Be the first player to get rid of all Truth or Dare cards in your hand. Answer pop culture trivia questions correctly in order to force your opponent to tell the truth. If you answer the question incorrectly, you will be subjected to an outrageous dare.

To win the game, you might have to lick another player’s arm, run around the block howling like a coyote, or stand on your head?

We hope we’ve helped you determine the style of activity and game you want, and have also been able to direct you to the best couple games at home to try, play and most of all enjoy.

Our pick of course is the How Game Are You?™ Intimacy Edition because you each learn, enjoy and start new conversations to enhance your emotional and physical intimacy. Buy Now for quick delivery direct or through Amazon (US) and Amazon (AU).

Romantic Games That Couples Play

Games That Couples Play

Are date nights getting a little boring and you want to step it up a bit? One of the things connected couples do is look to shake up date nights every now and then. Romantic games that couples play or couple games are one way to share some time alone with your partner and reconnect to why you came together and the joys this close bond can bring

Most romantic games that couples play are about innuendo. Do this, guess this and then take some clothing off or sip a glass of wine or something. This is more tit-for-tat (if you excuse the pun), and it can be funny, but not fun, and definitely not connecting in a meaningful/ sustainable way.

There is more to romance than just playing a game. Romantic games is about setting the scene first and the game is the substance. Here are some fun and romantic games that couples play that you should definitely try out to bring some spark in your relationship

The keys for romantic games are:

  1. Set aside some quality time free of outside distractions

  2. Create the mood prior to set the scene. Maybe a little note added onto your partner’s lunch, or a text in the morning (e.g. so looking forward to our romantic games night together), or cheeky meme sent in the afternoon

  3. Create a nice space at home. Even if you just moved house, you can set aside some clean space, maybe put a tablecloth down or layout some snacks or dinner and a few candles or aromatherapy oils. It’s a sacred space of communication and romance that you are making

  4. If you are in the habit of de-briefing each day, agree between you to skip that today, or limit it to 5 mins or so each. Tonight has a focus, and its romance and connection, not practicalities

  5. Food or drinks are great additions and they can be especially prepared or take-away, but a little presentation goes a long way and helps set a higher standard. Maybe celebratory champagne to toast each other and what you love about each other, or some favourite fruit just in season or a rare treat you rarely splurge on

  6. Put electronics to the side (and preferably on silent). If something needs to be done, agree between you when your night will start and do the task before you sit down

  7. Hold hands and take a couple of deep breaths together to let the energy and attachment to the rest of your crazy day dissipate. You are here now setting a scene for your romantic night of fun and games

  8. Giving gratitude can be a great grounding task. Each take turns to say what you are grateful for in the world, including each other, and be very present. If you are not feeling present, explain this to your partner so they don’t get mixed messages and see what they suggest to help you become more present. For some, its a glass of wine, or a shoulder massage, foot massage or your favourite music played and a few more deep breathes to slow down

  9. Forget about your day and talk about love, romance, great times you’ve had together, what you love in life and about each other

  10. Play your romantic couple games or question cards of your choice (further examples below). We created a game specifically for this and it’s a real-life conversation game and through this couples learn, laugh and as a result, romantic connection develops at a whole new level.

  11. Take some photos of you having fun, or just stop for a second to acknowledge your partner and what a fun time you’re having. This is a moment you can recall in the future or talk about on a road trip, and help take you back to the moment

  12. Use the time together as a reminder of how good it is to feel romantic again, more connected and focused on your relationship. Set a date for the next event, or take turns to plan things, be it a full date night out, or an easy low-stress night in.

If you Google ‘Romantic Games’ there aren’t a lot on offer that aren’t tacky or just about activities rather than connection. Games for romantics are usually suggestions like Scrabble with romantic words only allowed, or drinking, strip games. Other are more strategy or make believe games and have their place for some people, but don’t really set the scene for a great romance night, of true intimate and romantic connection.

Even if you are skilled at opening conversations and creating safe places for intimate discussions, if your partner is less communicative for whatever reason (tired, flat, disconnected or just not valuing the time properly), it becomes harder to initiate or achieve a meaningful discourse. One solution is to sit down, think of some great conversation starters and your own way to start it. Make it fun and be interesting but not too provocative or push the other persons emotional buttons as you are trying to build connection and conversation, not win points.

Romantic games that couples play questions can be simple like: 

  • “What’s something in our lives together that you really appreciate at the moment?”

  • “What would you like to do more of as a couple?”

Or make them more romantic or steamy:

  • “What kind of romantic gestures do you like the most?”

  • “What’s something we haven’t done in the bedroom for a while we should think about?”

Creating these conversation questions can take quite some time. Lucky for you we’ve done the hard work and spent hundreds of hours developing questions to get your romantic games started.

‘Among the romantic games that couples play, How Game Are You? Couples Intimacy Edition is the “BEST ROMANTIC COUPLES GAME EVER” we think’.

Think of this as a real-life romantic couple games conversation starter. The game starts with a Pledge Card to set the scene for a truthful game. Player 1 selects a Level 1 (1 chilli) card with simple ice-breakers to get conversation going, and then you move to more open-ended general questions. The next level (2 chilli cards) is about relationships specifically, romance, gratitude and date nights. Level (3 chilli) is more about physical intimacy questions, but in a tasteful way.

You’ll learn a lot about yourself, your partner and your relationship. At the end the winner gets to choose a task for the loser, to be performed over the next 14 days or they have to pamper the other player in whatever ‘reasonable’ way they want. It’s a fun game to play and conversations linger way after playing the game, providing a basis for better understanding and more meaningful connection between couples. There are many romantic game nights to be had with over 150 base cards plus the bonus 4 chilli image cards.

How Game Are You? Couples Intimacy Edition is now available through our website, Amazon US and Amazon AU or Ebay AU. View the full details of the game here or order your copy now for yourself or as a gift, and be one of the first to play it.
