The Best Drinking Games for Couples
Whether you and your other half are alone or hosting, we’ve got the right drinking game for couples to turn on the smiles and turn up the heat!
ATTENTION: MUST READ BEFORE PLAYING
Playing a drinking game with your partner is a total blast… but it also has the potential to go awry (alcohol is involved, after all).
To prevent drunken meltdowns, jealousy, and totally-not-worth-it hangovers, follow these rules:
- Set a drinking limit: It’s hard to keep track of how much you’re drinking when you’re having fun. Solve this problem by limiting your stash before you start. For example, put eight beers in the fridge and take the rest to the garage. When the eight are done, call it quits and move to the bedroom☺.
- Don’t provoke: Competitive couples, remember this! Your drinking game should be about bonding, not about winning at all costs. Provocation isn’t the same as teasing and it can turn ugly quick.
- Set ground rules: For example, if you’re giving clues about things you did in your past, you might want to prohibit any talk about your most recent exes. Jealousy loves booze.
- Be cool: Don’t be too concerned about rules or sticking to a plan. This is supposed to be spontaneous, so just let loose and have fun!
Alright, grab the beer opener, corkscrew and the pretzels. Game on!
Just the Two of Us
Get a little closer physically and emotionally with these drinking games for two.
Netflix and Chilled Beer
Sometimes after a long week at work, all that the both of you want to do is hunker down on the couch for some cuddles. But instead of sipping frosty brews while binging your favorite show in silence, turn your tube time into a drinking game that is sure to get things moving under the blankets.
There are drinking games for all of the most popular shows, but we’ll start you off with a Netflix favorite that EVERYONE loves: Friends.
Keep the rules for this drinking game handy, and make sure your partner doesn’t miss a sip! An hour in, you’ll be mushier than Ross and Rachel. Just watch out for those sentimental moments!
Bust a Gut
This hilarious drinking game has a simple premise. Don’t laugh! You can easily play at the kitchen table, on the couch, or in the bedroom, making it the perfect way to boost spirits and get in the mood.
The rules are simple: you have 30 seconds to make your partner laugh. If they break down, they drink! If not, you drink. Then switch roles.
You don’t need anything to play this game, but props make it way better. You can draw, act, sing, dance—anything that gets a laugh. Showing your partner your silly side and letting your guard down is intimate and sexy.If all goes well, the game will move between the sheets in no time.
Opposite Strip Poker
Opposite? So we have to put clothes on?
YES. Just hear us out on this one.
Getting naked is cool and all, but JUST getting naked and sitting there is a little lame. Instead, start the game with your underwear on. Every time you lose, your partner gets to ADD a piece of clothing—and they can choose ANYTHING.
Things get pretty outrageous once he’s wearing a bra and heels and she’s sporting a massive sombrero from his Mexico bachelor party 5 years ago. And at the end? Help each other take all those layers off!
Note: You don’t have to play poker. Any game will do! But it always helps to keep a deck of cards and all the drinking game fixins on hand.
Two Truths and a Lie
A classic ice-breaker turned drinking game, this game is a great way to learn more about your partner while sharing some laughs.
To play, each of you writes down three “facts” on a piece of paper. Two of them must be true, and one false. Then one person reads their facts, and the other interrogates them to try to figure out which is a lie. If the lie is detected, the liar drinks. If not, the interrogator drinks. Then, switch!
This can be a fun yet tricky game of deception. Long-time couples will have to work hard to stump their partners!
Truth or Dare
The ultimate couples drinking game—this list wouldn’t be complete without it! We know that you already know how to play this one, but here are some variations to spice it up!
- Flip a coin: Let destiny decide if you’ll be speaking the truth or doing a dare!
- Categories: Make categories for each round to give some direction to the game (try: body parts, embarrassing moments, song and dance, and secret fantasies!).
- Alternative options: If someone doesn’t want to do something, they have to drink (of course), but give them an alternative that’s just as fun. For example, if you don’t want to do a dare, you can get out of it by taking off a piece of clothing!
- Make cards: But don’t make your own! Get another couple to make 20 truth and dare cards for you, and you do the same for them. This will ensure you and your SO aren’t pitted against each other in a battle of revenge dares
- Jenga: As you can see in the picture, True or Dare Jenga is an awesome way to combine two games into one. They actually used to make it (but for some dumb reason stopped) but making your own is easy with a marker and some solid ideas. You play it like regular jenga, but have to perform the Truth or Dare you read on the Jenga piece you pull out.
Couples Game Night
Having friends over for a game night is a great way to liven up any weekend. These couples drinking games are suggestive and funny, and they make sure old couples and new dates have just as much fun!
This game is MADE for couples who like to laugh and take things over the top!
Start by assigning each person a number and then giving everyone a card with each persons’ number except their own (for example, if there are 8 people playing and you are person 3, you would have 7 cards in your hand—1,2,4,5,6,7,8).
Then, when it’s your turn, make a superlative statement:
“Who’s most likely to love being spanked?”
Everyone puts the number of the person who they think is most likely to enjoy a good butt flogging on the table. The card should be face down.
Each card is revealed one by one, and each time, the person who was accused of being a spankaholic tries to guess who voted for them. A correct guess gives a drink, an incorrect guess takes one!
This game gets pretty crazy after a few rounds. It’s a great way to bond as a couple and with friends, but remember not to get too personal!
Never Have I Ever (Couples Version)
Worried about revealing the time you role played Twilight fan fiction with your ex? Then the couple’s version is for you. In this version of the classic game, you play as a couple and only the things you’ve done together count.
Here’s how to play couples’ never have I ever:
Each person starts with three shots in front of them. Taking turns, each couple says something that they’ve never done. If another couple has done that thing, they need to drink. The first couple to have no shots left has to do a dare that the other couples think of!
Couples Beer pong
This is the unrivaled champion of drinking games for a reason—it’s a non-stop blast!
But, did you know that beer pong can also do wonders for your relationship? In the end, what is a couple but a team committed to sinking the last cup at the game of life?
An intense game of beer pong brings out why you’re a couple in the first place. It’s not about winning or losing. The encouragement, motivation, body language, touching, and suspense all create powerful bonds while getting the blood pumping.
Don’t forget to taunt the other couples mercilessly!
Every couple settles into a routine at one point or another. It’s comfortable, sure, but a little spice and spontaneity are needed to keep the spark alive! One romantic beach holiday a year just isn’t enough (though you should definitely go on a romantic beach holiday!). For the weekends and lazy winter nights, try one of these drinking games for couples. They’re guaranteed to take your relationship to the next level (the upstairs level of your home, that is <3)!
