What are the best board games for couples? You're about to find out. If there is one thing that the winter season does to all of us, it is to turn us into couch dwelling hermits who don’t want to leave home for anything other than an emergency! The cold weather and lack of light can will often lead to the decision to stay in for the night rather than venture out in the darkness. That means that you need to come up with plenty of things to do with your loved one to pass the time. Something that is perfect for a couple to enjoy on a long winter’s night is a great board game. To make your cosy nights in that bit more fun and memorable, here are some of the best board games for couples.
This is great for a couple because you have to work as a team. It is is a game where you both take on the role of specialists, working together to try to figure out a way to cure the world of a terrible plague that has befallen it. Can you save humanity? There’s only one way to find out! This is one of the absolute best board games for couples.
If you and your partner both like to play a bit of Farmville on Facebook or Sims on the computer, then Caverna is a game that you will definitely love. You start the game with a family and a simple cave, and the aim is to improve your cave, grow a farm, expand your family and mine for precious rubies!
It’s an oldie but it’s still a goodie! There is nothing better to get the competitive juices flowing than a good old-fashioned game of Monopoly. The great thing about Monopoly is that is can take forever to complete, so that is a whole evening sorted with just a single activity!
4. Forbidden Island
This is another game where you and your partner can work as a team. It is made up of lots of different tiles, and you have to work together to collect the hidden treasure that is stashed somewhere on the Forbidden Island. And you have to do all of these before the island sinks!
If you want a fun game that isn’t going to take too much brain power to play, then Jenga is definitely the choice for you! The classic game of stacking wooden blocks until the loser causes it to tumble over is tense and super fun and reminds us that we don’t need lots of cards and rules to make a great game.
If you don’t fancy playing Scrabble because you think it is boring, then Bananagrams is the perfect alternative. It is pretty much an exciting, fast-paced version of the classic word game because you are in a race against your partner and against time to build high scoring crosswords. Be careful, it might look innocent, but the fast-paced pressure of Bananagrams has been the cause of many a couple’s arguments over the years!
