Relationship Game Night Ideas: 20 Games To Play When Bored

Classic Games

Life

A fun game to get to know each other!

As your board game characters advance through the game, you can have discussions about how you see your individual futures going, as well as the future of your relationship.

Twister

Maybe you’re not as flexible as you used to be, but Twister can be a super fun game to play with your partner!

Have lots of laughs and revel in the fact that you can make total fools of yourselves in front of one another and still have a good time.

Monopoly

The next time you have a couple of hours and are in the mood to play a board game, try out a game of Monopoly together.

It’s the perfect game for revealing those true colors! (How do they react to bankruptcy?!) More than that, it guarantees you’ll spend a while together.

Clue

Who isn’t into true crime shows nowadays? Clue is the classic board game version! While you play the game, you can work together, or be competitive to try and solve the mystery.

Two Truths and a Lie

For those of you that have never played, Two Truths and a Lie is exactly what it sounds like.

One person tells two truths about themselves and a lie, while the other person tries to guess what is true and what isn’t. Get ready to learn something new and surprising about your partner!

Poker

Can you read each other’s poker face? Find out! Poker is a super fun card game that can be played with just two people. Get creative (or spicy) with the bets!

Bedroom Games

Staring contest

Who says you need a board game to have fun? To play, all you have to do is look into each other’s eyes. The first one to blink or look away loses! (Way harder than you think.) The best part? It’s super intimate.

Blindfolding

Okay, this may not be for everyone, because it can involve a significant amount of trust.

But if you’re both down, introducing a blindfold to the bedroom can be a really fun way to explore new things together!

Have the blindfolded person try to guess the objects you gently place on their skin. Who knows, things may get a little heated! (Wink.)

Truth or Dare

A fun, sexy twist on a classic! The “truth” option can help you learn more about each other, and if it’s “dare,” you can get creative with bedroom/foreplay friendly dares.

Never Have I Ever

Another great example of a classic sleepover party game that can be adapted for the bedroom.

During a typical Never Have I Ever game, people go around the room and state things they have never done, if you have done that thing you have to speak up and accept the penalty (which can range from gaining a point or taking a drink/shot).

In the bedroom adaptation, you and your partner can decide on the penalty (wink wink!) then take turns stating ‘never have I evers’ to get to know each other a bit better.

Made for Couples Games

TableTopics: Couples

Super fun and popular games like TableTopics also have couples editions that you and your partner can play together.

TableTopics: Couples offers an extensive list of questions that will prompt conversation between you and your partner.

Questions include things like, “For what reasons were you disciplined when you were a child?” and “If we could quit our jobs what would we like to do?”

Love Language: The Card Game

This is a card game specifically made for couples to get to know each other better.

The game comes with a set of 150 question prompts that are meant to make you think really hard about yourself, your partner, and the relationship in a fun, but serious way!

The cards are divided into five categories: family, intimacy, couple, individual, and past & future, which allows you to pick an area to focus on, or to mix it up!

{THE AND} Couples Game

This deck comes with 199 question cards that will spark interesting conversations between you and your partner. The cards are super versatile and can be played during a fun date night, or to help explore sensitive relationship topics.

Card prompts include questions like, “Why do you love me?” and “When do you feel closest to me?”

You Think You Know Me

The card game playfully tests how well you know each other, with prompts like, “I know your favorite pizza topping is ______” and “I know you do/do not believe in luck”.

This is definitely the most light-hearted of the conversational card games. With 500 different cards, it’s a great way to learn more about your partner!

Marital Bliss

Unlike other card games that can be played over the course of an hour to two, Marital bliss is a week-long ordeal that involves individualized missions with different point values and reward cards at the end (like a foot massage or something more intimate).

Most of the missions involve doing something for your significant other, as do the reward cards.

Playing this game can bring you closer as a couple by engaging in little acts of service throughout the week in a fun and competitive setting.

The Newlywed Game

The Newlywed Game was a popular TV show on air from 1966 to 2013. The show featured four newly married couples in a competition to see how well they knew each other.

Even though the show is no longer on air, you can still enjoy the premise by hosting your very own Newlywed Game with a few of your favorite couple friends!

Creative Games

Charades

Everyone’s played Charades at least once before in their lives, right? It’s a fun way to let your guard down and get to know your partner better.

What kind of things do they choose to act out? How do they try to explain things? What do they do when they’re totally stumped?

Are they over-the-top competitive? While it’s fun to play with just two people, it’s even better to invite other couples, too!

Grocery store games

Who said you can’t make chores fun? For many people, trips to the grocery store can be a total drag. So, change it up!

Turn it into a competition between you and your partner to shop the quickest or find the best deals. You can split up the list equally and go from there!

Scavenger hunts

Scavenger hunts can be a fun way to test how well your partner knows you and your relationship milestones.

Create a list of clues about where you first met, your favorite ice cream spot, and things of that nature, then go along with them as they try to solve it!

If there are clues that they don’t know, they’ll learn along the way, which will bring you closer together.

Blind Date Game

The blind date game is another fun way to break up your routine and try something new.

You and your partner both write down five possible date night ideas (these can range from a movie night in/Netflix and chill to a fancy dinner out) and then select one at random whenever you are feeling spontaneous and can’t decide exactly what to do.

It’s a great way to keep date night fresh! Whether you use one of these ideas or create your own, game night is the perfect way to spicy up any old date night!
