If you want to plan a date that’s out of the ordinary and more fun than any other, then having a night of drinking games for two is the way to go.
If you really want to make an impression on someone new, then you can’t just go for the typical date night. You want to plan your own kind of date night that’s unique to the things you like and that will make your date have the time of their life.
That being said, I think we can all agree that ditching the typical dinner and a movie and planning a night of drinking games for two is the way to go. There are so many different ways you can play drinking games, and they’re all bound to produce an unforgettable night of fun.
Why you should always go for fun on a date
Sure, some days are meant to be more serious, but for the most part, you should always aim to have fun on your dates if you really want to make an impression. The reason for this is simply because when your date is having a really good time, they’ll think of you whenever they want to have fun.
If you hit your date with a dose of fun whenever they’re with you, they’ll start to associate you with a really good time. This just means that they’ll want to spend more and more time with you – which is usually the goal with dates. [Read: Top 50 amazing first date ideas to wow your date]
Drinking games for two
Most drinking games are made for multiple people because parties are usually pretty saturated with people ready to drink and have fun. But there are also drinking games for two if you want to have a great date night.
So if you’re ready to have a night of fun and drinking with someone special to you, these are the games you’ll want to play. Just keep in mind that you’ll only want to have this kind of date night with someone who enjoys drinking just as much as you do.
#1 Go fish. I’m sure you’ve heard of this card game before. It’s really simple, and most of us have played it since we were little kids. But now we’re going to turn it into one of the adult drinking games for two.
All you need is a deck of cards, some beer or equivalent, and some liquor. The rules are basically the same, however, whenever the other person gets a pair, you take a drink from your beer. Whoever has the most matches at the end wins, and the loser has to take a shot! [Read: Game time – 40 saucy truth or dare ideas for a really fun night]
#2 Never have I ever. If you haven’t heard of this game, you’re seriously missing out. This is usually played at most parties with a group of people, but it’s also really fun to play with a date because it’ll help you learn more about them and see what you have in common.
The rules are fairly simple. One person says something they’ve never done before and if the other person HAS done that, they drink. It’s an easy way to take the edge off and get to know your new date. You have 5 drinks to take before you lose. Whoever runs out of their 5 drinks first is the loser and has to take a shot.

#3 Two truths, one lie. This is another game that can be played without alcohol, but drinking just makes it so much more fun. You probably have played this at work or at school in order to get to know someone.
In order to make this a drinking game, all you have to go is give your date two truths and one lie about you and if they guess the lie correctly, you drink. If they guess it incorrectly, they drink.
#4 1-2-3 tag. Now, this game can be a little tricky with someone who you’re only on a first or second date with. But if you’re planning a date night with someone who you’ve been with for a while, it’s perfect.
This is where you ask each other the same question and then on the count of three, you answer it and see if your date can guess your answer correctly. For example, one question would be, “What is my favorite song?” and on the count of 3, you answer what your favorite song is and your date tries to answer what your favorite song is.
#5 Quarters. This game is really simple and can be done while watching a movie at home or even waiting for the pizza to arrive for a movie night. All you need to have is two cups and a quarter. Then you take turns bouncing the quarter into your date’s cup. If you make it, they have to drink their whole drink and vice versa.
#6 Mustache and a movie. This is a really comical game that will have the both of you laughing and enjoying a great movie. To place this, you need to invest in a fake mustache. Then, you place it on your TV at random and turn on the movie. Whenever the mustache is placed on someone’s face right above their lip – where it would really be – you take a drink.
#7 Buzz. This game requires you to be good at math and pay close attention! This would be perfect if you’re cooking dinner together or even just waiting for your food at a restaurant.
All you have to do is count. The trick is that every time you get to a multiple of 7, you have to say “buzz.” The goal is to count as quickly as you can, and if either of you forgets to say “buzz,” you drink and start over. See how high you can get!
#8 Mario Kart. How many of you have played this super fun game? Sure, video games may not be the best choice for a date idea, but if your date is really into this kind of thing and gets competitive, it’s perfect.
Play the game normally, and whoever comes in a place ahead of the other wins. The loser takes a shot. You can even switch this up more with playing a tournament where the losers of each game take a shot, and the overall loser takes a shot at the very end.

#9 Uno. Uno is pretty much a staple card game in most homes. It’s really fun and easy to play, and it’s even one of the great drinking games for two. Although this is usually played with more people, you can play it with just two and have a ton of fun.
The rules are simple. All you have to do is play the game normally, but if a wild card emerges, both people drink. And if a “draw 2” or “draw 4” card is put down, the person it’s meant for drinks. Loser takes a shot at the end! [Read: 60 get-to-know-you questions for a new romance]
#10 Scrabble with a twist. If you’re a words person and you want to have a good time playing scrabble while a movie plays, you can turn this game into a drinking game easy.
For this, instead of putting down words for points, you try your best to come up with words that are related to drinking. For example, you try to come up with words like, “drink,” “alcohol,” or “bar,” etc. If you manage to make a word related to drinking, your date drinks!
Playing drinking games for two on a date night is a really fun way to let loose, get to know your date better, and just have fun. It takes the pressure off having a conversation and allows you to have a good time together.
