Board dating game
You move your men around and try to find the flag on your opponents side, without losing your own flag in the process. We were with a group of friends, and we were instantly hooked.
We went out the very next day and bought the game for ourselves! I included 2 versions of Ticket to Ride because you really just can’t pass it up. My sister and brother in law refuse to play the USA version because they think Europe is so much better.
The object of the game is to be the first player to play every card in your pile, by playing all of your cards in numerical order. Monopoly Deal combines the best parts of Monopoly with your own strategies of how to ‘out smart’ the partner you are playing. Changing up the deck allows many more options for arranging hands of sets or sequences. I had to include one game that used face cards and golf is the perfect one.
If you make the right combinations, you will be first to go out and you win. What’s great about golf is that you can play with just you and your loved one for date night, or make it a big group game night on different occasions. My hubby and kids love playing this game and when it’s a fun date night, we pull this game out.
The whole object of the game is to get rid of the cards that are dealt to you.
You do that by matching up color and number of objects on the cards. The object of the game is to be the first player to complete all 10 Phases.
In this game, you go on a cross country train adventure where each player collects and plays matching train cards to win railway routes that connect cities throughout North America. As a bonus, the longest continuous train gets added points at the end. In this game you go on a train adventure through turn of the century Europe.
You start each hand by picking up 1 card from the deck or the discard pile. Click here for more directions on how to play this super fun game. When my husband and I were first married we seriously played Skip-Bo almost every night for a good month! What’s great about this game is it takes very little skill, so if you want to just have a super chill game night – this game is perfect! Oh my goodness…if you like Monopoly but might have a few reservations about the game (like the length of the game), then this is the game for you! My in-laws absolutely love this game…my husband on the other hand…well, let’s just say this isn’t his favorite. It’s because it has a little bit of luck involved in it – which means he can’t use his mad ‘game’ skills to win a game. Having said that, it gives me that much more of a chance to win! So, Five Crowns is a fast-paced card game that has a deck with 5 suits instead of 4.
For example, you have to navigate tunnels, ferries and stations. Seriously, my list wouldn’t be complete without a few classic games like Scrabble.
Scrabble is a fun word game that tests your spelling, vocabulary, and spacial skills all at once!
Seriously, I LOVE when my busy hubby and myself get to slow things down for our date nights and just play games.
I LOVE the time that we get to spend together when we play games.
