Looking for some playful and fun ways to boost intimacy and spice up your date night? These naughty card games for couples might be just the right thing for you!

My partner Gabriel and I got one of these sets as a present a couple of years ago. Initially, we didn’t think much of it and let it lie forgotten in a bedside drawer for over a year.

But when we found it again and finally decided to give it a go, we absolutely had a blast playing it!

These kinds of date night card games are all very simple, which makes them quick and easy to get into.

Additionally, they all have some sort of connection building element to them. Because of this, they’re perfect for making you feel closer and more intimate with your partner.

They’re also a perfect way to introduce some novelty and unpredictability to a date night and bring back some of that spark from the very beginning of your relationship.

Gabriel and I had so much fun with that one game, it actually inspired me to look for other similar ones to try out. That’s how I created this list of all the best naughty card games for couples out there.

For your convenience, games in this guide are ordered according to their x-rating. Staring off with the most innocent ones and then gradually moving higher up the naughtiness scale… 😉

1. Truth or Dare for Couples


You’re likely already familiar with the all time classic teenage game: truth or dare.

Where you and your friends asked each other ‘truth or dare?’. And if you choose ‘truth’, you were forced to answer uncomfortable questions that reveal embarrassing things about yourself. And if you choose ‘dare’ you had to do silly little challenges, like talking to your crush or ringing on your neighbors door and running away.

Well, this is an adult version of the classic game, designed specifically for couples to help them bring back some of that teenage giddy-ness into their date night.

This set contains 50 cards, each card has both a ‘truth‘ or a ‘dare‘ you can choose from.

All the truth questions have been designed with couples in mind, so that they can get to know each other more intimately.

The dares are all flirtatious and of sexual nature.

Nothing particularly dirty or explicit. It’s more of a light, easy going, playful kind of date night game.

The most striking thing about this deck of cards is its size.

The cards, as well as the nice tin box they come with, are quite small: 2.4 x 2.4 inches. (6 x 6cm)

This makes the set very discreet and also perfect for traveling.

However, due to the small card size, the questions and dares can be hard to read, especially in dim lighting.

It’s the most innocent of all the card decks I’m going to review here. So if you’re looking for some easy going, and slightly naughty way to spice up your date night, this will be a great fit.

2. Intimacy


This is actually a very similar game to the Truth or Dare for Couples.

Much like in the other set, each card in the intimacy deck has two options to choose from. Just that instead of truth you have a ‘question’ category and instead of dare there is ‘action’.

The questions in the intimacy deck will get you and your partner to talk about your past experiences, reveal your sexual preferences and fantasies.

Actions, on the other hand, are all flirty, teasing kinds of activities. Again, nothing overly crazy or explicit here.

This deck contains 65 cards with 125 questions and actions to choose from.

Again, it’s a very similar set to Truth or Dare for Couples. The main difference between the two is the design.

The cards in the intimacy deck are also slightly bigger.

3. Talk, Flirt, Dare!


Talk, Flirt, Dare is yet another spin-off of the old time classic: truth or dare. Just that here you have THREE options to choose from: talk, flirt or dare.

With this set, you get a separate deck of cards for each one of these categories.

The ‘talk’ cards are to quiz both of you on how well you know each other.

The cards in the ‘flirt’ category will make you two reveal your sexual desires and preferences.

Dare cards (as you probably guessed already…) contain various dares of sexual nature.

This is a larger set than the previous two games, it contains 150 cards in total (50 cards per category).

Also, each card in the deck has only one prompt written on them. Because of this, it actually makes this game slightly more versatile than the previous two.

This allows you to choose just one category (‘flirt‘ for example) and play only with that one on your date night.

You can also use the ‘talk’ deck as a completely separate game to play with friends and family.

Overall, this game is well designed and thought through. The cards are actually regular playing card size with a big readable font.

None of the questions or dares here are particularly crazy or x-rated either. They are very playful and flirty though.

It’s a great game to deepen your emotional bond, boost intimacy and spice things up at the same time.

4. LOOPY


Alright guys, it’s time to finally significantly move up the naughtiness scale!

Loopy is a date night game for couples that contains 5 different decks of cards divided into four stages of intimacy.

You get ‘Talks’, ‘Kisses’, ‘Fondles’, ‘Fun Activities’ and a mystery bonus deck.

The whole set is 150 cards in total.

It also comes with a spinner and a satin blindfold.

The rules of this game are fairly simple. You start at the first intimacy level: ’Talks’ and then take turns spinning the spinner to determine what the next move will be.

There are four potential outcomes here:

  • Pick a card and do what it says
  • Take off a piece of clothing
  • Pick a card from the bonus deck
  • Or move up the intimacy level (but only if both players are up for it)

The satin blindfold that’s part of the set comes in handy during the game for some of the activities.

LOOPY is definitely the naughties game so far.

Most of the cards in here contain some dirty questions and activities. There is some controversial stuff in here too. Like questions about your past, cheating, strange fantasies etc.

Also, LOOPY is a bit rough around the edges. It’s made in China and some of the wording and grammar sound a bit strange.

Overall, this card game was designed for couples to mix up foreplay with talking about things, touching each other and discovering new ways to please the other.

This set is perfect for spicing up your date night. If you are open minded and want to try out new fun things, this is absolutely the right game for you.

5. Cosmo’s Steamy Sex Games


Cosmo’s Steamy Sex Games is one of a few various date night card game sets released by the editors of Cosmopolitan.

This particular deck contains 118 erotic card with graphics and pictures. The cards can be used to play twelve couples-only bedroom games.

The games included in this set all have very creative names. They are: Dirty Truth or Dare, Sexy Scavenger Hunt, Dirty Disco, A Night of Naughty Adventure, Finish the Fantasy, Dicey Discovery, Titillating Trivia, Get Him Hot, The Cosmo Carnal Challenge, Daring Dice, Sexy Tarot Cards, and A Week of Passion Prop Play

Each of these spicy games comes with instructions, a list of necessary props, rules of the game and the designated cards.

The whole set comes in a fairly small 4.25 x 5 inch bright pink box. (10.8 x 12.7cm)

It’s a well designed, sturdy product. All twelve games are meant as a creative approach to foreplay.

There are some pretty crazy ideas in this box. If you’re looking to experiment with role plays and are up for adding some extra kink in your bedroom, this is the right choice for you.

You’ll definitely make some new experiences as a couple and spice things up with this date night game set.

Now, maintaining attraction in a long term relationship is not an easy feat. Most couples try to solve this problem by adding new experiences and activities to their routines.

Even though this approach can give you a short term result, it’s unlikely to create the lasting changes you hope for.

That’s because keeping the spark alive actually has little to do with adding new experiences and habits in your relationship. It’s more about removing the things that are preventing you and your partner from feeling attracted to each other instead.

Here you’ll learn about the most common blocks that stand in the way of your attraction and what you need to do, to remove them and restore that special connection with your man.

15 Romantic Spring Date Ideas for Couples

15 Romantic Spring Date Ideas for Couples

Photo by Devon Divine

Here are 15 tested date ideas that Karolina and I love doing during spring! These will get you out the doors and help you jump back into being active together. It’s finally time to feel the sun on your faces again!

1. Try Slacklining Together

You may have seen it and never dared trying it, but Slacklining isn’t as difficult as it looks. Karolina and I had no prior experience, we watched a couple of YouTube videos to get the basics and ordered a $35 slackline off Amazon.

Within 15 minutes of trying we were able to balance for a second or two (it’s especially helpful if you have your partner to lean on for support at the beginning) By the end of our one-hour session, we could make a couple of steps down the line unassisted.

It’s super rewarding to get in touch with your body’s ability to make adjustments in microseconds to stay on the line.

2. Go Pet Some Lovely Animals

Pull up google and search for petting zoos, some public parks actually have small ones for kids too. Petting animals is very therapeutic and relaxing, it can also help ground you, if that’s something you’re needing.

I find that in the concrete jungle, it can be easy to lose sight of the nature we come from. Seeing goats, donkeys or rabbits munching and pouncing about is a calming contrast to our busy lives.

3. Plan and Execute an Epic Picnic

Yes, the good old classic picnic. Be sure to put effort into your food preparation and don’t skimp! Get some brie, a baguette, grapes, a freshly pressed juice and selection platter of meats to go with, etc. Be generous!

Don’t forget a blanket and some water. If you’re not sure where to have your picnic, check google maps for a nice patch of green that isn’t close to any roads or busy streets.

Now when you’ve reached your destination and have set up, take pride in a date well prepared and planned! Enjoy your delightful little banquette and why not get to know each other a little better with 30 Meaningful Questions.

4. Find Tranquility in a Forest Walk

Karolina and I love walks and there’s nothing like going on one, when everything is blossoming to life. If you want to take it a step further, I recommend driving to a nearby forest. They are generally far less frequented, which will bring a relaxing stillness and focus to the two of you.

It’s a great time to allow your minds to wander out loud and bounce off of each other. You can let your feet carry you away and talk about Overcoming Anxieties.

5. Marvel at Life in a Zoo

When you see nothing but people and pets all day, it’s easy to forget that we’re not the only species on this vast planet. Whenever we’re at the zoo, Karolina and I are always amazed by the seemingly endless shapes life takes and that’s just a fraction of it! Did you know that monkeys alone have over 260 types of subspecies? Yeah! Neither did I!

Baffling stuff.

So go to the zoo, get to know your fellow planet dwellers a little and be blown away by their fact charts.

6. Offer Your Time Together

Do some research and select a type of volunteer work that speaks to both of you. For us it was sorting and packing items at a warehouse that were going out for donations or helping coordinate lodgings for middle eastern refugees.

Working on a common goal together and giving your time for what you believe in is very rewarding. We both found it reframed our world view and helped us appreciate the quality of life we have.

There are countless organizations that are eager for help and support, so find one that speaks to you.

7. Charter a Boat and Sail the Seas (or Ponds)

It’s not quite time for a swim yet, but you can definitely take a boat out onto the water. Rowing, motor or sailing, whichever floats your.. -We personally enjoy switching it up between paddle and sailing boats on the Alte Donau, our local backwater.

It’s nice to feel the wind in your face and let all your troubles float (I’m on a roll) away. Karolina and I find it nice to be alone and talk about what’s on our minds.

8. Do a Drive-In Cinema

Another classic. Definitely try this one if you’re feeling a little old school or nostalgic. We went to watch Dracula Untold in a lot that didn’t have more than a dozen other cars. It was full of couples, which certainly added to the date vibes.

If you choose to do this, make sure your car’s battery is in an okay condition, since you listen to the film over your radio by tuning into a specific frequency!

Our car battery was a little old and died, so we lost audio for a while and had to guess what the actors were saying for a moment while we turned the engine on for a few minutes to charge it up again.

9. Pick Wild Garlic For a Recipe

Wild garlic is a delicious plant that tastes a lot like -you guessed it- garlic. It’s milder and has a leafy taste. We love making soups or savory pancakes with it.

You’ll find it growing in moist, shaded areas, locally we find it in forests and especially near streams. A quick web search should help you discover areas around yourself. If wild garlic doesn’t grow around your area, research and find some other local edible plant, and go scavenge!

The beauty of this is that it gets you both into scavenger mode, where your eyes scan the ground for the best and finest leaves. Foraging for- and cooking your own food, is such a fun and rewarding activity. It’s a refreshing change to aisle browsing in grocery stores.

10. Visit Places You Were in Your Childhood

During our walks, we often end up in old familiar places, like where we used to live, play or go to school. What’s really nice about this, is that it brings up long forgotten moments in your life that are important to share.

It’s a totally different way of getting to know your partner. There might even be some memories that surface that are important to talk about. If you need help with Helping Your Partner Open Up, check out the article.

I had countless things to share with Karolina about my school days, it was amazing to tell her about it all and relive it. I began to appreciate just how much the experiences at the time shaped my beliefs and self-perception in my present day life.

11. Try Rock Climbing

After a mere 30 minutes of rock climbing, you will walk out with arms made steel. This stuff is intense, so be sure to go easy and do your stretches.

There are plenty of places that offer equipment like shoes, chalk powder and harnesses, so you don’t need to commit to anything. Just try it once for the hell of it and if you’re unsure don’t be afraid to get some pointers from fellow climbers. You’ll see plenty of people that know their stuff and are swinging around like monkeys. They’re mostly happy to share some advice.

When you decide to do this, be sure to wear loose clothes or at least stretchy fabric. It’s hard enough lifting your foot to the next notch, without fighting your own denim.

12. Jump On An Outdoor Trampoline

Who didn’t jump on mattresses when they were a kid? There’s nothing like bouncing around and hanging in the air for a second or two. What’s great about this activity is for everybody. You can go hard and high or very gently and it’s still super fun and an amazing workout for your body!

If you’re continually jumping, this will leave you breathless in 10-15 minutes, so be sure to have some water on you or buy some, after your session.

If you’re feeling really adventurous be sure to check out trampoline halls, they’re basically an enormous room covered in trampolines across all surfaces.

13. Cycling

This may be a typically European thing? I don’t know, but we love our bicycles. They can take you far away with little pedal effort and take you to places four wheels cannot go.

Karolina and I have covered much of Vienna and it’s outskirts by car and by bicycle and it does not even feel like the same place! There are countless things you miss while driving because you can’t simply stop wherever you like and take in the view. Not so when cycling and there are all these wonderful little places you discover that you cannot access by car.

14. A Night Under The Stars

You wouldn’t believe how different the sky looks in rural areas. There’s so much light pollution in the cities, we forget that there’s a canopy of stars covering all of the sky!

Pack your stuff, grab your tent and head out to a remote camping site for the night. If you can find one at a higher altitude, even better! (But pack for a potentially cold night.)

Be sure you have plenty of time to set up a tent and have a meal, there’s no point in rushing it and being stressed on your lovely date. Pitching a tent can be a great team building exercise too.

Now get all cozied up, you can lie outside of your tent wrapped up, or poke your heads out the entrance while lying on your backs. Pictures can’t do it justice, you’ll see a sky covered in stars.

Now imagine, each one of those dots in the sky is a star, just like our sun with exoplanets orbiting around it and each of those is located in the Milky Way (our galaxy) and that there are about 100 Billion of these stars in our galaxy alone!

Yeah, let that sink in for a moment..

Now that you’re feeling infinitesimally small, consider that there are at least 10 Reasons Why Relationships are Totally Worth it.

15. Go To An Observatory

So if you’re feeling lazy and can’t be bothered going with the effort of date number 14. Go to an observatory instead. It’s one thing to look to the sky with your hobby telescope and another to blow your mind with seeing the insane details of the craters of the moon surface magnified.

Yup, there’s a 3,474 km (2158 mi.) diameter giant rock, just sitting there in the sky, to set the romantic mood for the both of you.

10 Unique Questions for a Perfect Date With Him

10 Unique Questions for a Perfect Date With Him

Photo by Irena Carpaccio

From guy to girl, let’s be honest here…

Dates can be awkward as hell.

A little while ago a guy likely appeared on your radar and you two got to know each other a little.

Which eventually led to agreeing to go on a date…

But now that the date is around the corner and you’re maybe a little doubtful or nervous:

  • What if it’s weird or awkward?
  • What if HE’S weird and awkward?
  • Will I need a blueprint with the emergency exits?
  • Wait. What if HE doesn’t like ME?!”

I’m exaggerating a little here…

But if you can relate to any of the above thoughts, know that it’s perfectly normal to feel skittish.

As a man, let me also reassure you that MEN have these worries AS WELL!

Sure we play all cool and detached, but DON’T BE FOOLED!

It’s just an act.

So now that you’re going on a date, you can warm things up with a little small talk:

How are you?
The weather is so…
“Omg, did you hear what happened…?

You know, the classics, etc..

Then when the moment feels right, you can ask your date some of the following questions to peak his interest in you.

(Women who ask questions and take the lead are INSTANTLY respected more by guys)

The questions also have the added benefit of you gauging his answers and seeing if he’s OF INTEREST TO YOU.

Almost like a job interview, would you employ him? 😉

Let’s find out!

Question #1 | “What Is The Cheesiest Pick Up Line You’ve Heard So Far?”

“Are you from Tennessee?… ‘Cause you’re the only ten I see.

Terrible, I know.

But it can break some awkward walls.

Ask him (if you dare) and find out whether he’s actually used it!

It’ll give you a taste of his flirting skills (or lack thereof).

Question #2 | “Is There a Thing You Would Never Ever Do?”

Bold, cautious or total wimp?

Time to find out!

Question #3 | “What Things Do You Consider Yourself to Be Good At?”

Like most men, I’ll likely always fall for this one.

We’re just so “humble”, that we’ll never pass up on an opportunity to let every woman in the world know how amazing and great we are.

We just can’t help ourselves! It’s hopeless. 😅

But can he keep himself in check at least a little?

Also, if he isn’t totally self-absorbed he will RETURN the question.

Question #4 | “ What’s the Show to Watch on Netflix or Amazon Prime Right Now?”

You can tell a lot about a guy based on his favorite show.

Is he into series about tough but heartless gangsters?

No?

More the smart detective that solves impossible murder cases…

Or the heavens forbid, has he watched all seasons of FRIENDS a dozen times?

Time to find out which characters your date sees himself in!

Question #5 | “What’s the Best Thing That’s Happened to You?”

The lottery? A job opportunity? Finally managing that backward somersault?

Or if he’s really cheeky, “Obviously, this date with you…”

Question #6 | “Do You Have Something That You’re Proud of That You Haven’t Told Anybody Yet?”

Are you into mysterious guys? Some men have secret projects.

They’re often kept secret while they’re in their delicate development stage.

But maybe you’ve swooned him with your charm already and he’ll want to tell you EVERYTHING!

Question #7 | “What’s Something That Bugs You About the World?”

Are there things about the world that frustrate you?

Personally, there aren’t any for me… Except, you know, almost EVERYTHING that could be fixed or improved!

And he surely has his gripes too.

With this question, you’ll be able to see whether you care about and value the same things or live on the opposite ends of the planet.

Question #8 | “Would You Rather Go to a Family Reunion or an Amusement Park?”

Is his family pleasant or would he rather do anything BUT that?

I for one, would rather go for a walk alone in a graveyard as the clock struck midnight than attend my family reunion.

It’s nothing personal really, we all just collectively hate each other.

How about you?

Question #9 | “What Are the Best and Worst Flavours of Ice Cream?”

This can make or break a date.

You can take this one a step further “Ben & Jerry’s or Häagen-Dazs?

Things can get personal and ugly quickly though, careful with this question. 😉

Question #10 | “What’s the Worst Advice Someone’s Given You?”

Have you ever been convinced to do something by a friend who branded it as GREAT advice…?

That then turned out to be THE WORST thing you could have ever possibly done?

Yeah, me neither.

But let’s find out whether he has!

Conclusion

And there we have it.

10 questions that will undoubtedly keep your date on his toes, you in control and the last time you’re likely to see him.

I’m kidding.

But DO BE CAREFUL not to ask ALL of these questions on your first date!

He’ll think you’re nuts and you and I both know you’re a delightful human being, let him see that side of you…

The crazy can come later. 😬

So, pick only a couple of questions that you like and are actually CURIOUS to hear the answer to.

This will create an organic and super interesting atmosphere.

Plus he’ll see you as deep and be curious to learn more about YOU!

Let me know how your date went (I’m totally curious!) and if you have any questions about the questions.

Leave them in the comments section and I’ll get back to you!

Top 10 Date Night Games To Get To Know Your Partner

Top 10 Date Night Games To Get To Know Your Partner

Looking for fun and productive ways to spend a date night with your man?

These games and quizzes might be just a perfect thing for you.

My partner, Gabriel and I recently pulled out a long-forgotten card game from one of our drawers, and we really had a blast!

These games and quizzes will raise questions that you normally would have never thought about. Seriously, they’re full of creative ideas.

Playing games like this is a great way to get to know your partner better and feel closer to him while having fun!

We enjoyed ourselves so much, that it made me want to try out some other ones.

After extensive amazon research and a couple of fun date night tests, I’ve compiled this list of all the best games and quizzes for couples out there!

All the card games on this list contain deep and thoughtful questions intended for couples. They’re bound to make you feel closer and more connected to your partner.

1. Love Language: The Card Game

This card game consists of 101 cards with questions to ask your partner.

The cards are divided into five categories: Family, Intimacy, Couple, Individual, and Past & Future. Each of these five topics is labeled and marked with a specific color.

There aren’t any rules to this game. You can decide to play with cards from one particular category or you can choose to mix everything up.

This game is my personal favorite for two reasons:

Firstly, the questions in this set are really creative and deep.

These cards have been designed by a couples psychologist Arthur Aron and he did a really good job. This game really sparked our interest and lead our conversations to some unexpected places.

Seriously, you’re really gonna find some great questions here!

My second reason for liking this card game best is the fact that the cards are divided into five categories.

When I ordered this set I really didn’t expect it to matter that much, however, once we tried this out, we realized that having the option to choose a particular topic brings a whole different dimension to the game.

The whole experience of playing with the cards becomes a lot more playful and suspenseful. The person picking the cards gets to feel a bit like a tv quiz presenter. “And the next category will be..”

Playing Love Language: The Card Game was lots of fun and it certainly brought us closer together!

2. TableTopics Couples: Questions to Start Great Conversations

This is a set of 135 square cards with one question each. Much like the previous pack, there are no rules to this game. You just pick a card and ask away.

The questions on these cards are a bit more lighthearted than in the Love Languages Card Game. Moreover, this set includes some questions about sex.

It’s a great choice if you’re looking for an easy and flirty activity for a date night.

The brand – TableTopics – is well established and offers many sets all for different occasions. They have a general conversation starter pack, a family pack, etc.

It’s a popular product with lots of positive reviews. They even updated the couples edition to include questions suggested by their customers.

This game gets to be my second favorite because of the flirty playful questions.

Date night without flirting is not a proper date!

These cards provide ample opportunities for some serious flirting, without being overly naughty. It’s a perfect mix of deep and playful questions.

You can spend a great and fun evening with your partner and you’re bound to feel closer to him at the end of it.

3. Our Moments Couples

Our Moments Couples is a set of 100 cards. Again, there is no set gameplay, you just pick a card and ask away.

This set is the one that we got as a present and had forgotten about for a year. After rediscovering this game, we had lots of fun playing these connection cards.

Much like the Love Languages Game, these cards contain some seriously deep and thought-provoking questions. There are some cards related to sex, but they’re fewer than in the TableTopics: Couples set.

This is a perfect pick if you’re looking for a deep, almost philosophical way to spend an evening with your man.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t have easy-going playtime this game. We had lots of fun with these cards! It’s not all THAT SERIOUS. It’s just slightly more serious than the other set.

Overall, it’s a well-designed product and an awesome game. Personally, I think it’s slightly less intense than the Love Languages Card game and a bit more serious than the TableTopics set.

It’s a great middle ground, if that’s what you’re looking for.

4. Intimacy Deck

Intimacy deck is an extremely popular date night game for couples.

It contains 150 cards that come all packed in one neat box. The cards are color coded and (similarly to Love Language: The Card Game) divided into six categories: Past, Life, Intimacy, Relationship, About You and Random.

You’ll learn and will also get a chance to share your past experiences, family values you were brought up with, as well as your sexual desires and preferences.

This deck has lots of very varied, thought provoking, deep questions.

While playing this game, we’ve learned new things about each other and we’ve been together for nine years now…

This card game was designed to make couples feel closer and more intimately connected. There are some really good questions in the intimacy category here.

Overall, it’s a great product. It’s very similar to the Love language: The Card Game. It’s just got a bit of a different feel and design, plus there are actually more questions in this set.

The fact that cards are color coded and divided into categories makes it more versatile too. You can remove all the intimacy cards from the set and you’ve got a whole new game you can also play with friends and family.

5. Uncommon Questions

This is a set of 200 cards with questions to help you reconnect with your partner.

This game is a Kickstarter project created by a married couple, who were so busy with their everyday lives, they didn’t have enough time to nurture their relationship.

You can learn the personal story of this game’s creators from their kickstarter about video.

Here they outline how exhausting the everyday reality of having a family was for them.

At the end of each day, by the time they were done with work and their kids were finally in bed, they didn’t have the capacity for thoughtful conversations anymore.

That’s why they started a habit of writing down questions for their spouse throughout the day.

They would then read the questions to one another later in the evening.

This has become their method of reconnecting their marriage and keeping it alive.

Eventually, it turned out that their friends and relatives became interested in their method and wanted to try it too. That’s how the uncommon questions card game was born.

The questions in this game are more general than in the other ones. That’s why they are also suited to be used with bigger groups of friends and family.

The set is much bigger than all the competition. This will ensure that you can play it multiple times without the questions repeating much.

I find the personal story of the creators of this game very inspiring. Keeping the spark alive in not an easy feat in long term relationships. These cards have been designed to help out with that.

6. So Cards

So cards are a deck of 52 cards that have been designed as a connection game for multiple people. You can use it both as a date night game as well as a connection game for the whole family or friends.

The set is recommended for players 12 years old and up, so you’ll only find PG13 questions here.

So Cards can be played in 5 game modes:

Classic – where all players answer the same question

Raffle – where everyone picks a different cards and take turns answering

Solo – a mode that encourages you to use these questions as a writing prompt for a journal entry

If I were you – everyone tries to answer the question as though they were you, the person closest to the truth wins the round

Lightening – try to answer as many questions as you can as fast as you can

There are even more game mode ideas on the game creator’s website.

The different modes are certainly what differentiates this set from all the other ones, however, you could choose to apply the same principles to all the other cards game too.

This set is full of really deep and creative questions too. The fact that’s it’s not a game exclusively designed for couples makes it more versatile.

7. So Cards: More Than Friends


This is a variation of the previous game designed especially for couples to help them boost intimacy and deepen emotional connection in their relationship.

This deck is full of deep, heartfelt questions. It’s a perfect date night activity for all those who are ready to venture into vulnerable, emotional topics.

A few of the questions in this deck are known to be a bit touchy for some couples. They might bring up some old problems and even trigger negative feelings.

Tackling difficult topics is always a good thing in relationships though. It’s a great way to break some walls and address unspoken problems.

Much like the regular So cards, this game can be played in all the different modes: Classic, Raffle, Solo, if I were you and Lightning.

This deck contains 56 cards: 47 questions, three non-verbal prompts, one blank card and three instruction cards.

It’s basically a deeper version of the previous game. It’s been designed to make your date night a more vulnerable but also more memorable experience.

8. Talk, Flirt, Dare!


This date night game is a spin-off the old time classic: truth or dare. Just that instead having to choose between two categories, here you have three choices: talk, flirt or dare.

The cards in the talk category contain questions that will test you on how well you know your partner.

The cards in the flirt category are full of playful questions that will make you reveal your sexual desires and preferences.

Dare cards (you might have guessed this one already) contain dares of sexual nature. Nothing too crazy or explicit but definitely fun and flirtatious acts of kindness.

This game is definitely different from all the other ones, it’s much more playful and flirty rather than deep and emotional.

The set contains 150 cards in total (50 cards per category).

What’s really great about this deck is that it’s three games in one. You can just grab the talk deck, if that’s the only part that you feel like doing. Or you might want to choose to use the dare deck only.

The questions and dares in here are not too x-rated, they’re even suitable to be played together with other couples. It’s gotta be played with close friends though…

9. The Ultimate Game for Couples


The ultimate game for couples is a deck of 200 cards. They are divided into two categories: ‘guess’ and ‘challenge’. The really unique thing about this set is the competitive nature of this game.

It can be played in two modes: you play it just with your partner or you can also team up with your significant other and play against other couples.

This set makes for great date night activity too. The cards are formulated in a way that lets you and your partner compete on how well you know each other and do lots of funny, almost kid-like challenges.

It’s a great fit for couples who like acting silly and enjoy a bit of competition.

There are no particularly naughty questions or challenges here so it really can be played with a group of friends too.

This card game has a bit of a drinking game vibe to it.

Despite all the playfulness and lightheadedness, it can definitely help you boost intimacy and get to know your partner on a deeper level though.

10. Deeper Connections


Deeper connections is another deck of 200 cards with questions. They are divided into four different categories: personal, relationship, miscellaneous and past.

What really sets this set apart from all the other ones is it’s happy, colorful design.

It’s very similar to love language: the card game and the intimacy deck. But it’s a brighter, happier version of the same date night game.

Maybe, it’s just about the color palette of this set, but the whole deck just feels more easygoing and lighthearted. Some of the cards are about topics related to intimacy but nothing too naughty or explicit.

There are some funny questions here too. You’re bound to get some good laughs out of this one.

Click here to see Deeper Connections

All of these card games are a great way to feel closer to your partner. They’re all really solid, thought through products.

Some decks are bigger, others are smaller. But, in my experience, the number of questions doesn’t matter that much. Sometimes one card is enough to start off an hour long conversation.

They’re all very similar in price range too, so you should really choose whichever one fits your personal taste and mood the most!

Date night card games do have their limits though, since they’re mostly designed for a one off experience.
