It may still be too chilly to throw a BBQ or spend an evening drinking with your lover on the patio, but that shouldnâ€™t stop you from double dating.Â This weekend, take the fun inside by hosting a coupleâ€™s game night.Â Whether youâ€™re playing with your partner or against, healthy competition mixed with good company will guarantee an uproarious night.
Group games, like charades and Pictionary, involve everyone and foster a loud, exciting atmosphere.Â Keep score throughout the night to see which couple racks up the most points.Â To make a tradition out of it, create a small trophy for the winners to take home.Â Every month, plan a new game night and rotate the trophy accordingly.
Technology can help keep your game night interactive.Â Fire up your PS3 or Xbox and have a tournament.Â Let the console keep track of each teamâ€™s points while playing games like Call of Duty or Wii Sports.Â Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with a little new age entertainment!Â If you have single friends, invite them over with a platonic teammate.Â Everyone can join in on game night.
At the end of the evening, you can wind down with pizza and a movie.Â Even if your other couple friends canâ€™t show, a night of first person shooters and Monopoly with your sweetheart will keep the memories coming as the hours fly by.
