Just For The Two Of You

1. Twister

Twister can be fun when played with friends, but it can also take a crazy turn when playing it only with your partner. The rules of the game are pretty simple. You can get this game at any toy store. It comes with a chart of colorful circles and an arrow on a board. The board with the arrow has colors and limbs on it. When you spin the arrow, one end lands on a color, and the other end lands on a limb. You have to place that particular limb on the particular circle (for instance, left hand on a blue circle). Each partner takes turns to spin the arrow and call out the positions the other person has to take. You can make it even more fun by adding alcohol to the mix. You can also try adding in some personal rules, like if one of you can’t reach their position, they have to do anything the other person says.

2. The Double Dice Game

With this game, get ready for things to get hot and steamy. Here, you need two sheets of paper. On one sheet, list out actions like touch or hold. On the other sheet, list out different body parts like hands or the neck. Make sure you number all the actions and body parts. Roll a die to pick an option from the first sheet. Then, roll again to pick an option from the second sheet. Each partner takes turns performing these acts on the other.

3. Would You Rather

Looking to get to know your partner better? Then this is for you both! Take turns asking each other questions about what they would rather do. For example, “Would you rather be left alone on an island with me or your favorite celeb”? These questions are bound to cause some chaos, romance, and fun! Add a twist to the game – if your partner does not want to answer a question they can either take a shot of alcohol or do whatever you ask of them.

4. The Note Card Game

This is an awesome game for couples to play. Each partner writes down things they want to do with their partner. Write each of these acts on different chits of paper. Throw the chits in a bowl and take turns picking one out. Then, perform the act with or on your partner.

5. Deepest Fantasies

This game can take your intimacy to a whole new level. Each partner writes down their deepest fantasies, and they get to play it out with their partners. It’s all about letting your mind roam free. Depending on how long or complex the fantasies are, you can either stick to one per partner or try out multiple in one night. Or, break the fantasy down into smaller parts and play it out slowly.

6. The Bucket List

Each partner writes down everything they would ever want to try out with each other. It’s basically everything you and your partner have ever wanted to try before you die. Nothing is off-limits until you say it is. You can experiment with positions, places, etc. You can also build on the romance factor by adding cute date bucket list items like “traveling to Paris and dining at the Eiffel tower” or “kissing in the rain.”

7. Truth Or Dare

This game is a great way to get to know your partner better. If they pick truth, you can ask personal, romantic, or steamy questions to get to know your partner better. If they pick dare, you can ask them to do something naughty for or to you.

8. Cosplay

This is the ultimate bedroom game. Each partner dresses up like the other’s ideal fantasy character. Then, you play out any fantasy that your partner has always had. Think of all the crazy costumes and fantasy storylines you can try out!

The best thing about these couple games is that you can take any of these games and just put your own spin on it. Catherine Zeta-Jones and her husband Michael Douglas play golf together with a twist. They make bets while playing golf that involve the loser dropping down their pants on the course. You can do the same with any other game. If you’re playing Jenga and one of you makes a move without dropping the stack, the other partner has to do something for them. With a little imagination, even chess can get very crazy and funny!

Quick Tip
Add a spicy twist to Jenga by writing down your dares on each block. Play out that dare on the block you take out without dropping the stack.

If you and your partner hang out with other couples often, here are some fun games you can play with them!

Fun Games To Play With Your Couple Friends

9. Cards Against Humanity

This card game is meant to be played with your close friends. Be warned that things can get dirty or awkward real fast. The game has two card stacks – white and black. In every round, one person asks a question from a black card, while the others have to answer with a randomly picked white card. The black card questions can be something like “Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s __________.” And one player’s white card can read “poor life choices.” The naughtiest or funniest answer wins.

Quick Tip
You can make your own set of cards and mention instances specific to your friend group and packed with your in-jokes.

10. The Couple Game

This game determines which couple knows the most about each other. Each person writes down intimate questions on cards. Each couple will have paper and pens with them. Then, each couple takes turns to answer the questions. If the couple’s answers match, they get a point.

11. Treasure Hunt

If you’re an active couple with equally active couple friends, this is for you! Have a friend who is not involved in the hunt plan the whole treasure hunt. They need to leave clues for all the couples who are participating. The one couple that reaches the prize first wins. This game can have its “awww” moments, but don’t be surprised if you find a couple fighting over a task!

12. The Coconut Game

This fun game involves coconuts! A couple stands facing each other with a coconut placed between their tummies. The aim is to move the coconut up to their mouths without using their hands. Sounds familiar, right? It’s the game Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler play in Just Go With It. It got them closer but also started a fight between another couple. So you know it’s bound to shake things up!

13. Flip Cup

This game involves drinking and flipping over cups. Yes, it’s that simple! Most people drink alcohol, but you can try it with non-alcoholic drinks as well. It can be played as couples against each other or each partner against the other. Each player has to drink alcohol out of a plastic glass, place it upside down at the edge of a table, spin around, then try to flip it over so that it lands upside down again. You need to flip as many glasses as possible within a time limit.

14. That’s What She Said

This card game is very similar to Cards against humanity, but it’s mainly filled with twisted innuendos. Here you have two stacks of cards – red setup cards and white phrase cards. One player reads out the red card, and other players answer with their white cards. Things can get very hilarious. It’s a great way to get to know new couple friends.

15. A Number And A Drink

This crazy game involves numbers and drinks. First, gather a bunch of drinks and edible liquids. You can use alcoholic drinks, condiments like ketchup and mustard, and strange liquids like pickle juice. Number each of the bottles. Then, write down the numbers on chits and toss them in a bowl. One person has to pick three chits, and their partner has to drink a blend of those drinks. There’s no aim to this game except to have fun!
