There are times when you simply need dollops of fun and sensuality to bring back the zest in your relationship. Romantic games on these occasions can work wonders to bring you close to each other in a light-hearted and interesting way. So the next time you and your partner have some free time, chuck out the TV remote and try out these couple games instead.
This is one of the most popular choices when it comes to having plain unadulterated fun. The box of this classic game includes a spinner and a plastic mat marked with colored circles. After the dial is spun, players are required to move a hand or foot to the marked circles. As the game progresses, it becomes increasingly necessary to contort one’s body into ludicrous poses and herein lies the fun. Very often even before the end of the game, players succumb to laughter and the limitations of the human body. For the adult version, let the winner ask a sensual favor from his/her opponent.
TIP: Ask these 2000 questions and know the secret desires of your lover!
If you and your partner have a sweet tooth, this is the game for you. The game comes with three ounces of chocolate dessert topping, a game board, two brushes and two game pieces. The players are required take turns to roll the dice and then have to strip, select a dare or paint a part of the opponent’s body with chocolate. Try it out and you two might end up licking the chocolate off each other!
A perennial favorite among romantic games, the Lifestories game is a good way of discovering unknown facts about your partner. While your partner may be diffident of disclosing personal details in a conversation, this game offers a fun way of prising loose hitherto unknown nuggets of your partner’s history. The game includes a set of questions which each participant is required to answer. You can make your own questions or buy the game from a store in which case it will have cards with questions on them. This game in fact is a good choice for couples who are just getting to know each other and are still shy about trying out the risqué antics.
Sensual tasks game
If you and your partner are feeling particularly adventurous, try out a game where you are required to pick “to do” cards which challenge the players with sensual tasks like giving a fifteen-minute massage or whispering racy messages in the other person’s ears. You can pick up the commercial version of this game, like ‘Lust!’, from a store or set tasks by yourself and print them on self-made cards. Best of all, everybody wins since the game ends with an intimate experience.
Write it down
Yet another card game which can set your senses tingling is Fan the Flames. This game requires participants to write out their sexual fantasies on blank “wish” cards. Other than these, the game also comes with “guess” cards to test how much the partners know of each other’s fantasies as well as “flame” cards that suggest sensual rewards for correct answers. If you cannot get this game from a store, make it up at home since all you need are cards in three different colors and a vivid imagination.
This favorite of kid’s parties can be given an adult twist to make it truly enjoyable for couples. Leave clues for your partner all over the house and let one clue lead to the next. For instance, to indicate that the next clue can be found behind the bathroom mirror, let the previous one read, “I can see myself in your eyes” or any such hints about reflection and mirrors. Make the hints as romantic as possible and let the last clue lead to the bedroom. As the final reward, act out a fantasy that your partner wishes or wrap yourself in a giant bow and wait for him/her to claim you.
Add a romantic twist to a regular game
If you both have suddenly decided to have a games night instead of going out, why not have fun with what you have lying around your home? Just like strip poker, go ahead with strip Yatzee, rummy and even ping pong. Let a player take off an item of clothing every time he or she loses. To make the game even sexier, let the winner request his or her opponent to do something special like perform a naughty schoolgirl fantasy or give the winner a sensuous massage.
Indulge your senses
As essential part of physical intimacy is the pampering of all the five senses. And a game based on this can never go wrong between lovers. Take a numbered dice and for each number prepare two sets of sensuous requests – like taste your lover’s toes or feel the silken touch of your lover’s hair. Print or write down the requests on two sets of cards and let each partner have a set. Then with each roll of the dice, see the number that has appeared and fulfill the corresponding request.
Bring a romantic twist to this old standby by asking players to come up with only erotic words. Again if a player can use all the seven letters to make a word, let him or her have a bonus prize. Needless to say the loser will have to fulfill the winner’s secret wish or fantasy – and the sexier the wish, the better!.
Many times men and women get so serious about their roles as partners, as husbands or wives, that they forget to have a good time. Laughing together and having fun works wonders to bring a couple closer to each other. It keeps the relationship fresh, brushes away the cobwebs of the mind and makes lovers young at heart once again. And so the next time you plan to go out on a date or wonder what to do on rainy night, change your mind and have a games night instead.
