Playing games with friends is a great way to relax after a hard week at work. You can stay in your house and enjoy time with people that mean a lot to you. Many people don’t talk about the fun you can have playing games with your other half. Whether you stay in the same house or are in a long-distance relationship, here are some amazing games for couples to try out with the person that means the most to them.
Words With Friends 2
Up first on this list of games couples should play is Words with Friends 2. This game is basically a twist on the classic and beloved game Scrabble. You and your partner will take turns finding a word that works with the letters you already have. The reason this game is so popular amongst friends and couples is that you don’t have to be in the same room to play it.
If you are away from your partner, you can jump on to facetime and talk to each other whilst you enjoy a game of Words with Friends 2. Another benefit of this game is that if you don’t have time to sit and complete the game, you can leave it and come back to it anytime you want. This is perfect for long-distance relationships where you are living in different time zones and can’t always be awake at the same time.
Heads Up is number 2 on this list and is another fantastic game that is great fun to play with friends and your significant other. How the game works is someone will hold up a card to their forehead, which will have a phrase or famous person on it. The other person will then have to give hints about what the card says without saying what or who it is. You only have a limited time to guess the right answer, which makes the game more intense and a lot of the time, funnier.
This game can also be played via facetime, so you can play from the comfort of your living room with someone on the other side of the world. Heads Up is a good way to see if you and your partner are on similar wavelengths with good communication skills.
Virtual Escape Rooms
Virtual escape rooms are a great way for you and your partner to put your thinking caps on and work together to solve puzzles and figure out how to escape within the time limit. To be good at virtual escape rooms, you and your significant other need to be able to communicate with each other effectively and use each other’s strengths to solve problems quickly.
Not only are these types of games great for bonding between couples, but they are a load of fun and often provide a lot of laughs. Because the escape rooms are virtual, you can play with your partner online if they aren’t able to be with you in person. You’ll quickly forget the distance between you as you both focus on figuring out how to get out of the escape room as quickly as possible.
Geoguesser is a wonderful game for couples that love to travel and think they know the geography of the world quite well. How it works is that you are dropped somewhere in the world randomly on google maps, and you have to look around and figure out what country you are in. Once you think you have a good idea of where you might be, you can select a location on the world map. The closer your guess is to the actual position on the map, the higher the score you will be given.
You and your partner can take turns to see who can score the highest and be crowned the king of geographical knowledge. If you don’t fancy the competition, then you can work together to see how accurate you can be with your guesses. Again, couples can play this game online and don’t have to be next to each other. Instead, one person can start up the game and share their screen with the other person, and you can communicate via video call to decide what direction you want to look in first to gather as much information as possible before you make your guess.
