This classic game doesn’t get old. A stare off is simply looking into each other’s eyes without blinking. Often, this game leads to kissing, and there on, maybe something more. *winks* A stare off can be played anywhere and at any time. People who catch you playing this game will only think that you both are oh-so-in love with each other.

2. Thumb rule

This game involves holding each other’s hands with the four fingers minus the thumb. So, you need to try to pin each other’s thumbs down. The person who is able to capture the other person’s them obviously wins!  It’s one of the most fun games to play with your boyfriend.

3. Double date charades

Charades is a great game to communicate without talking; your actions will speak louder than words, and if you have another couple for company, you two can go up against them and form teams. It really helps when you have codes for different things and watch way too many movies together! :)

4. Board games

Board games like Taboo, Monopoly, Pictionary, are great ways to pass time. There are a lot of games available for adults these days and they are fun, amusing, and very interesting. If you want to simply laze at home on a Saturday with your loved one, you could consider playing one of these games.

5. Twenty questions

A game you can play almost anywhere, whether in a bus, train, a dentist’s waiting room, at a boring party, anywhere! This game involves one person thinking about a famous person and the other asking 20 questions to guess the name of that famous person. The person who has thought of the celebrity’s name can answer all questions in only a ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

6. Truth or dare

A nice game to play at a party or with a group of friends, truth or dare can sometimes get really intense. This game is perfect for couples who are relatively new in a relationship because you can ask them any question about themselves, and they simply can’t lie. The other option they have is to ‘dare’ to do something totally ridiculous.

7. Two truths & a lie

A great ice-breaker, this game involves a person saying three things about themselves, of which two need to be true, the third has to be a lie. The other person needs to guess which one is a lie. A lot of revelations can happen when you play this game. 😉 At the same time, it’s a nice way to get to know the other person.

8. Treasure hunt

If you’re bored at home and have nothing to do, you could simply play this game and hide a particular object and play treasure hunt with your boyfriend. Say “hot” when they are closer to the hidden object and say “cold” when they are away.

9. Yes or No

This game is similar to two truths and a lie but is only better. Because it involves drinking. Take two sips of your alcoholic drink to say “yes” and one sip to say “no”. By the end of this game, we’re sure as hell that you’d be drunk or maybe tipsy, and have had a nice time (unless of course a severe hangover spoils it for you the next day!).

10. Never have I ever

Oh, this game is a fun game to play with your boyfriend because you can get him to answer all those questions he has been avoiding. *waggles eyebrows* Again, you can do this along with a few shots or cocktails to keep things interesting.

11. I spy

This may sound like a game for kindergarten kids, but nonetheless it’s a fun game to play when you are traveling or simply sitting in a waiting room. To play this game, you need to be observant of your surroundings and think of an object. Once you’ve done that, you tell the other person, “I spy with my little eye, something ___,” and that could be a clue to the actual thing that you have spotted. The person gets 3 chances to guess!

12. Role play

More of a bedroom game, role playing is a great way to spice things up sexually. Whatever your fantasy, or whatever works for you, in this game you can literally be who you want to be. Adding costumes and props will only make it more lively. So, don’t shy away from it. Role playing is immensely sexually stimulating for most people. And these days, you could buy a lot of the costumes and props online too.

13. Strip for a cause

A game of cards, or simply any board games that allows a player to lose at regular intervals will make for a great game to strip. Similar to strip poker. By the end of the game, one of you would be completely naked, and then you know what to do! 😀

14. Kiss Kiss

There are tons of games you both can play from your smartphones, where you both have logged into a particular game and are keeping score. To play these games, you need not be with each other all the time and you can play them while you are away from each other as well. Then there are the PS3 games, the racing computer games and so on.

16. Karaoke
