Have A Video Game Night

If you or your partner enjoys playing video games, make a date night of it! Put on your favorite sweatpants and T-shirt, grab some snacks, put on a game and play into the wee hours of the night with your lover.

Preparation steps:

  • Choose the games that you and your partner will play. You can play against each other for fun or work together to beat the levels.
  • There are some pretty awesome games to choose from. Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch offer fun games that can be played by two people at a time.
  • Mario Kart, Crash Bandicoot Nitro Racing, Don't Starve Together, Borderlands 2/3, Overcooked and The Forest are some nifty options.
  • Get comfy - put on your favorite lazy-day clothes, tie up your hair and just relax. This date is about serious unwinding so dress the part!

Some tips:

  • Have your snacks and drinks close by. Whether you and your partner decide to co-op or take each other on, you’ll want to stay close to the console or PC.
  • To make things a little more fun and competitive, decide beforehand that the loser needs to do household chores for a week, or something similar.
  • If you don’t have any good games, borrow games from your friends or buy a couple online.
  • You don’t have to just play mainstream games, there are loads of indie (independently developed) games that are a lot of fun as well.
  • Oh My Godheads!, Duck Game and Castle Crashers Remastered are some popular indie games to consider. All of them offer a unique but fun gaming experience.
