The previous list was focused on couple engagement and expanding awareness to build a hardier infrastructure for a lasting relationships.

But what if you are really just set on a quiet night at home to play a game with your partner that is not so much focused on learning about each other but rather on relaxing, having fun and not having to think deep about your responses?

CodeNames Duet

Time is of the essence and by giving each other one word clues you play as a team to identify all 15 agents without revealing the assassins or too many bystanders. Great spy inspired game.

3 up 3 down

Quick, easily learned and fast paced(takes all of 10min for a game), your goal is to get rid of all your cards before your partner. There is a twist in that 3 cards are not revealed til the end of the game so you must be strategic about the moves you make all the way through to the end.

Easy game to take with you two on a car ride or camping trip for amusement and quality time together.

Unstable Unicorns

One of Kickstarter’s top 100 backed projects of all time and winner of 2019 People’s Choice Award for toy of the year, Unstable Unicorn is a strategic game where you are to collect unicorns, build your unicorn army, hinder your opponent’s progress and destroy their unicorn army first.

“A game that allows people to share meaningful experiences while actively working to screw each other over.”

Monopoly Deal

While Monopoly is not just cards for couples (it is traditionally a family game) it is also great to play just the two of you.

Condense the classic game of Monopoly into a fast-pace, 45 minute card game where your goal is to be the first to collect 3 full property sets of different colors to win.

The board and movable figurines are replaced by the simple drawing of cards for the necessary actions of the game. Money still included to wheel-and-deal.

Taco vs Burrito

A card game created by a 7-year old, so it is easy to learn BUT unpredictable actions cards that are drawn, create the need for strategic maneuvers to be able to build the weirdest, wildest meal to ensure you claim your place in the winner’s circle.

Fluxx Card Game

A game that is sure to cause fun loving chaos and confusion. Easy and simple to learn and start as any old card game goes; draw one card, play one card but then the rules can change and a whole different set of rules are upon you.

Just when you get comfy with those rules, BAM! The rules can change again. Things get shaken up all over the place in interesting and entertaining ways.

Exploding Kittens

Highly strategic, version of Russian Roulette that utilizes kittens, lasers and explosions.

Your goal is to try not to draw an exploding kitten card and lose though there are cards to defuse the explosion hence the strategic aspect of the game. “It’s like UNO, except there are goats, magical enchiladas and kittens that can kill you.” -CNN

A fun 2 player card game for couples.

Odins Ravens

A strategic card game based on mythical creatures and fantasy. Strategy is extremely necessary in winning over your opponent though you must be careful as many of your actions taken against your opponent can come back to haunt you later on in the game.

Circle of Jerks

Have a hilarious, wild and crazy, relaxing evening of this fast-paced, spicy, foul mouthed competitive card game. You are required to yell, loudly, obscenities that maybe you naturally would shy away from even saying, much less screaming in public.

Match and identify laughter invoking symbols and terms to make your way to the head of the game. Drinking rules are included as well.

Couples card Game Rules

If you are going to play cards as a couple, it is important to set some ground rules in play to make sure the night does not become too competitive and take a turn for the worse.

The ground rules should include:

  • No over competitiveness
  • No distractions
  • (You might like to add a few of your own!)

Did you find the right card game for you?

We are social animals, we require interaction to stay sane, relax and unwind, and promote health. Card games stimulate our brain, develop problem solving skills and provide us the opportunity to encourage and strengthen connections to 1 or more other people in our lives.

We create irreplaceable memories of laughter, enjoyment and fun through games with one another. Take the liberty in purchasing one or more of any of the above mentioned card games and look forward to busting boredom right out of any night it seems to want to creep up.
