Adult dating games are not just for adults who are dating. Married couples and long-term couples can benefit from games that tease, titillate, and engage the suggestive mind.
Seven Great Dating Games
Whether you're just meeting your partner or you've known him for years, a dating game can be a fun way to learn how he thinks.
1. Adult Loaded Questions
The board game challenges two to six players to answer general sex IQ questions. The game also allows the players to challenge each other with funny personal questions. Each turn involves a question, the dice roller reads the question off and the other players write down their answers on slips of paper. The dice roller must then try to identify who gave what answer to the questions. Played for fun and entertainment, you get a chance to see how much you really know about your friends.
2. Deal Breaker
Deal Breaker is the game that lets you decide whether or not your relationship is for life or whether or not a behavior is a "deal breaker." The game is meant to be played in a group, and has you contemplate things like date behaviors on a first date, and other strange and funny situations. Laughter ensues as you find out what your friends think is an absolute deal breaker in a relationship.
3. Smart Ass
Smart Ass is a fun game that allows you and your guests to shout, laugh and demonstrate just how much of a smart alec you are. This is a trivia game that doesn't require a lot of trivia knowledge. It begins with a generic clue and you will get up to ten clues to identify the person, place or thing. Be careful how much of a smart alec you are, you only get one guess. As you can imagine the shenanigans can be quite intense.
4. Cards Against Humanity
Have you ever played Apples to Apples? Cards Against Humanity is its dirty counterpart. The host presents a card with a clue like, "my dating life" and the other players choose a card from their hand, which can say anything from "spaghetti" to "underwater porn star" to describe that clue. The host then picks a favorite and that player gets a point. It's loud and potentially hilarious, as long as you are not easily offended.
5. Dirty Minds
This card game plays on innuendo. Each card has a clue that describe a common object, but in a way that sounds dirty to the average reader. For example, it could say "I love to suck up liquids" and the answer would be a paper towel. The cleaner your mind is, the better you will do.
6. Pocket Ungame Couples Version
If your date is going to be a family event, perhaps this game would be best. While it still offers the opportunity to connect and get to know your partner better, it is less risqué and okay to play in front of an all-ages audience. It consists of a series of clean questions for couples to ask one another to find out more about each other.
7. Sims 2 Deluxe
Why not prepare for a date by trying out your lines on hypothetical people? That's the fun of playing Sims, where you guide your people through a world you create. This special edition lets the characters enjoy nightlife and potentially find that special someone.
Do It Yourself Dating Games
Dating games are designed to help you get to know your partner, date or friends. These games test your knowledge of each other, so why not create a list of questions either of things you want your partner to know or what you'd enjoy sharing. Challenge your partner to add questions as well. Then, drop all the questions into a bag. You each get to draw three questions. Whoever gets the most right answers gets to pick a prize such as a massage, meal or something more playful.
When choosing games to play with friends or with each other, be sure that the ultimate goal is fun and entertainment. An evening of laughter can be a powerful aphrodisiac.
