Anyone who has ever been in a relationship will tell you that a long term commitment to another person requires a lot of hard work. Communication and making as much time for each other as possible is crucial. However, in between work, tidying the house, helping the kids with their homework and cooking dinner, there is often a shortage of time. This leads to romance and time to connect going right out the window. A fun and slightly different way to re-connect with your partner is by playing a romantic board game. Romantic board games usually require a little peace and quiet, so wait until the kids are in bed before you begin. The object of playing these games is to get closer and get a little silly with your partner in ways you used to in the days when you had nothing but each other to think about. There are a lot of romantic board games on the market at the moment, and these are four of the best.
Romantic Board Games
Nookii was once voted the best adult board game, and was a top seller on Amazon which instantly makes it sound promising! The game requires each person to roll the dice and follow the instructions on the game cards for varying lengths of time. The Nookii game cards are marked “Mmm” (romantic), “Ooh” (fun) and “Aah” (naughty) and are always played in that order. While the range of activities on the cards is very wide, none of the instructions are too over the top, so even the painfully shy should not be afraid to give this a go!
I know what you’re thinking. What is an innocent game like Twister doing on a list of romantic board games? Well, Twister doesn’t have to be innocent. In fact, if you and your partner have the house to yourselves, it is anything but! It’s physical, and requires you bending in all kinds of different positions which can quickly lead to other things. With just a few glasses of wine, Twister goes from silly to sexy!
Monogamy is also very highly rated among romantic board games, but is definitely not one for the faint hearted! Just like Nookii, the in game activities vary. Monogamy begins with questions about favourite moments with your partner, feelings, memories and things you would like to do. It then moves on to prompts of a more touchy-feely nature before heading into the final, sexually orientated round! You will need to buy a few extra things for the game, such as massage oils and whipped cream (wink, wink) but even if you don’t, you can still have a lot of fun with this game!
Secret Romance is not strictly a board game, but it is definitely romantic. Inside the heart shaped tin there are one hundred cards which have romantic ideas written on them. The idea is not to reveal your card to your partner, but to show them by following the instructions. The best thing about this game is that it can be played all the time, any time. Just choose your moment and show your partner how much you care!
These romantic board games all have things about them that will help to strengthen your relationship with your partner – it just depends which area of your relationship you feel you need to work on. For adding a little spice, Monogamy and Nookii are perfect. For some fun and laughter, play Twister and for some good old fashioned romance, the Secret Romance card game will make you smile.
