    Board Game ideas?

    Advertisements
    I really want to get DH to have a date night with me, and I think it would be fun since there is a storm rolling in to light the fireplace and enjoy some yummy food while playing a board game.

    The thing is we don't have any games!


    Anyone have any they would recommended for 2 people?
    I was thinking something fun like the game of life?


    Thanks in advance!

    Trivia Pursuit is good... We like that.

    We like the Scene It games too... it comes in about 20 different versions. My sister got the "TCM" one for Christmas, and I blew the socks off of everyone.

    We have the original, Disney, and one other...

    My mom and I used to play cards a lot, We like Casino. We played Yatzee also all the time, and Scrabble.

    I would do that one but we are trying to stay away from electronics!



    Scrabble we have, but DH isn't a fan because I "cheat" [in other words, I kick butt]

    I will definitely look into trivia pursuit though!
    Thanks kensington!

    UNO is another card game that two can play... There is always Monopoly.

    We like "You Don't Know Jack" ... but that takes the computer. Sorry.

    Strip monopoly!! I LOVE it! Maybe ifI try these rules DH will actually PLAY monopoly with me! (he's a sore loser and I usually win)

    OP: We usually do card games like phase 10, skipbo, monopoly deal (it's different from the board game) etc. I also have a game called Pente that we like.And Mancala. I dunno. Hope your date night is lots of fun!

    I don't think I'd go with Life...it's really long! Unless of course you have or can get the Family Game Night 3 game - it has life, clue, twister (kinda like guitar hero where you copy the sequence), Mouse Trap, and Yahtzee Hands Down...they make it for Xbox, Wii, and PS. I love it!

    Hasbro Family Game Night 3 - EA Games

    I would also suggest Monopoly...but that's my favorite board game.

    You could get some dice and a cup to play Farkle...if you don't know what it is, I'd check out this site - Farkle Rules | How to Play Farkle / Farkel Dice Game
    There is also a version of the game on facebook if you wanted to practice before playing with your husband.
