Even though when you think of board games, you probably imagine a big group of friends, sitting in someone’s living room, having a great time, right? But who says playing it with just your significant other can’t be as much fun, or even more?
Today there are so many great options if you are looking for a game to play with your partner. But to save you the trouble of looking for them we are gonna present you 5 of the best board games for couples!
1. Stars Wars: Rebellion
Do you two happen to be fans of Star Wars? Then we have a perfect present for you. This is an asymmetrical strategy game, where you are in control of the whole war, you and your babe pick your sides and let the game begin. If you are playing on the side of the Empire, your goal is to locate the Rebel base and demolish it. On the other hand, if you choose the Rebels your strategy will be completely different, you will want to avoid confrontation and build alliances. This game is pretty intense and a longer play, so if you are looking for something light maybe this one is not for you.
2. Arkham Horror: The Card Game
This next one is great if you and your bae get your thrills from horror movies. Another plus of this game is that you don’t fight against each other, but you work as a team to win it all. You choose the scenario of the game, and you pick what investigators you want. You each get a deck of cards with items, weapons, skills, and your character. The decisions you make affect the game a great deal so it can end in different ways. It has a beautiful design and amazing storytelling.
Now a more abstract game. A stunning release which has the objective to match the same tiles. It is fun, pretty easy to learn, the only thing that might take a bit more time is getting used to the scoring combinations. Overall a great choice if you and your boyfriend/girlfriend are more into abstract games.
A game that is perfect for any couple! The objective is to make the most beautiful quilt. This one starts with a 9×9 canvas and five buttons that are actually money and victory points. Then you have 33 patches to pick from, all different shapes, colours, and prices. Making a quilt won’t be as easy as you think! This is a great choice if you are looking for a shorter, lighter game. It’s great for beginners and very addictive.
5. Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures
Another one where you can work on your teamwork skills as you try to beat the game together. It starts out by Sherlock Holmes himself giving you a case to solve. Every case will contain a booklet with the description of the case, London locations, a questionnaire as well as a solution that Sherlock Holmes came up with that you can compare to your one at the end of the game. Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures is an amazing mystery and investigation game for two. The set up is easy, and it’s not too hard to learn. Although if you don’t feel like reading too much, this might not be the right one for you.
