Remember the first few weeks in your relationship when all you wanted to do was get your hands on each other and know every aspect of each other’s lives? It’s normal for that excitement to fade over time, but relationship games will bring excitement back to your relationship, reigniting that spark.

No matter how many years you’ve been together, it doesn’t mean the end of fun in your relationship just because you’ve been together for so long. A playful attitude and some fun-filled games can put the intimacy back into your relationship. [Read: Conversation games: 15 best talking games for fun & lots of laughs]

Relationship games that build intimacy outside the bedroom

As they say, intimacy happens hours before you enter the bedroom. It’s the playfulness, the true connection of two souls, and the nurturing of each others’ love tanks. Here are some wholesome games you can play with your partner so your relationship will become more intimate and fun.

1. Twenty questions

This game is classic for a reason, and it’s so effective in building intimacy. It’s also pretty simple. You and your partner alternately ask each other questions and vow to be honest with your answers. You often see this game in text conversations, drinking sessions, and basically as long as you want to have fun!

Enjoying this game with your partner will allow you both to get to know one another deeper *questions can also be sexual!* Sample questions: “Did you ever fake an orgasm?”, “What’s one secret you haven’t told me?”, “What’s your greatest worry?”

Just make sure you play this with a light heart and never ever turn the game sour by digging into sensitive topics like cheating or past disagreements. [Read: 30 naughty questions for couples to keep the spark alive]

2. Chore wheel

Weekend household cleaning could be a bummer or it could be fun. If you notice that neither of you are looking forward to it, make it exciting by having a chore wheel. It makes something as dull as chores into something more exciting.

Make a spinning wheel or buy one online and then write the basic chores on it, such as throwing out the trash, cleaning the bathroom, mowing the lawn, etc. Each of you spins for the chores you will do that day.

Whoever finishes first will be the winner and can decide what movie to watch or what food to eat. [Read: 8 ways to get your ‘me time’ in amidst a hectic schedule]

3. Roll the dice

Buy a pair of dice and get a piece of paper. On your paper, make two columns. On the first column, list down twelve loving commands *tickle, kiss, bite, nibble, sing, etc.* and on the second column, list down places or body parts *bathroom, street, restaurant, cinema, ear, etc.*

You each roll the dice twice. If you want to try something different for your sex life, we suggest this as one of the relationship games to give a try. We promise you won’t regret a thing! It’s going to be a fun *and wild* night for both of you. [Read: 10 really naughty sex games for couples to get the two of you horny instantly]

4. Relationship hangman

This is just like the all too familiar hangman game except that the words to be guessed have something to do with your relationship. When you go to a restaurant and you’re waiting for your order or if you’re on the plane, simply get your pen and paper and start drawing boxes like the wheel of fortune.

If you want your partner to guess the Bahamas because that’s where you had your honeymoon, draw seven boxes. When the hangman is formed and your partner still hasn’t guessed the word, they lose.

To make this more fun, you can create a consequence for the person who loses, such as washing the dishes or massaging the other person for 10 minutes. [Read: 60 deep and fun get to know you questions to peek into their soul]

5. Cook-off

Look, you don’t need to be a professional chef to enjoy this as one of the best relationship games. In fact, it’s an enjoyable way to spend time with your partner while also being competitive. Invite friends or family over for a great feast but turn it into a game between you and your dearly beloved.

Then it’s time for a cook-off. Compete on the main dish, the desserts, the hors d’oeuvres, and even cocktails. Just like the chore wheel above, this adds spice to your daily grind. Not to mention, you and your partner get to taste many yummy recipes in the process.

What a food fest! [Read: 10 dirty drinking games for naughty guys and girls]

6. One word, one answer

This is one of the relationship games that works similar to twenty questions. Who says asking questions isn’t fun? If you feel like reminiscing and want to go down memory game, this is the perfect game to play with your partner.

It can help you build intimacy as you remember how your relationship progressed over time and the many milestones you surpassed together. Basically, you start with any word, and the other responds with another word to build the sentence. Use both your words and answers to go down memory lane.

7. Scrabble with a twist

it’s impossible for scrabble not to be fun, but this is another one of the relationship games that comes with a twist. Basically, if one of you finished a word first, gets to ask the person truth or dare.

Then, you get to ask any question of your choosing or dare them to do anything *even sexually!*  It’s a great way to make playing scrabble more fun and memorable where you’ll both enjoy one another’s presence. [Read: 25 couples’ activities that make you feel loved and closer than ever]

8. Karaoke

You can never go wrong with a karaoke night with your partner. In fact, many people don’t even classify this as a relationship game, but it definitely counts. You don’t need a karaoke machine to accomplish this as you can have fun even without one *just start singing acapella.*

Want a more competitive game? You can invite your friends over, and they can be the judge to see who’s a better singer! You can make this even more fun by ordering a few beers and making a night of it. [Read: The best drinking games for couples to bond and have fun together]

Games to build intimacy in the bedroom

The best way to become more intimate with your partner in the bedroom is not by having prolonged necking or massages *although those are awesome, too*, it is by having some really engaging foreplay. Engaging is the operative word.

You should have a hell of a good time to the point that actual sex just becomes the icing on the cake. Here are some of the most entertaining games that could help develop intimacy in couples. [Read: Long distance relationship boredom – How to spice it up again]

9. Sexy Truth or Dare

You don’t have to purchase anything for this game. All you need to do is print out truths and dares, roll them, and put them in two jars. Everything you put in should be sex-related. For the questions, it could be as simple as “What do I do that turns you on?” or as aggressive as” Do you want to have a threesome?”

For the dare, it could be as simple as “give me a lap dance,” but we know you’re better than that! If you know how the classic truth or dare goes, why not put a twist and make it sexual *you never know, you could end up in the bedroom after the game!* [Read: 30 dirty truth or dare questions for a sexy night of fun]

10. Naked Hide and Seek

There are so many relationship games you could both enjoy just by adding a hint of a sexual aspect to it, such as hide and seek. The game is as straightforward as the title. When your house is empty, strip your clothes off and go on a naked hide and seek. The endorphin rush can lead to more fulfilling sex.

Just make sure you’re both alone when doing this game, or this could end in an awkward mess!

11. Blindfold guessing game

Blindfold your partner and let them guess what you put in their mouth. It could be fruits, your finger, your elbow, chocolates…anything you can think of. This kind of game builds trust because the blindfolded one is vulnerable and dependent on the one who’s in control.

It’s one of the relationship games that gives you the element of adrenaline rush and thrill, all because you’ll never know what to expect since you’re blindfolded. It’s also an excellent game for laughs! [Read: 13 weird, unique ways to build intimacy as a couples]

12. Staring contest

When was the last time you held a really long stare with your partner? The sexy kind, not the long angry look you usually give during fights. Staring into another person’s eyes for more than ten seconds creates intimacy. In fact, many yogis recommend this for therapy.

They say the eyes are the window to the soul, and you will find out just how true that is when you try this game. You might end up laughing at one another or making love, who knows? That’s what’s so great about this game; you can never tell what to expect! [Read: 30 dirty would-you-rather questions to ask your lover]

13. Sexy Twister

Twister was a phenomenal game when it was first released in the 60s but is still available today. It’s played using a large mat spread on the floor and a spinning wheel. The mat has circles of different colors you spin the wheel to find out where you need to put your hands or legs.

Play it with your partner naked to turn it into a Kama Sutra game. It becomes sexier if you play with clothes on at first and then strip piece by piece as you play. It’s often one of the relationship games seen in friendships and sleepovers, but this also works for relationships! [Read: 10 fun sex games to play with your boyfriend in bed]

14. Never Have I Ever

It’s almost impossible that you haven’t heard of this as it’s a classic drinking game with your friends. Although this is more fun to play with lots of people, you can still play this with just you and your partner. Don’t forget the alcohol if you plan on enjoying this game, as alcohol makes things wilder!

Basically, each of you says something you’ve never done *preferably sexually* and if the other person has done it, they take a shot. If one of you hasn’t had much experience sexually, you or they could come at a disadvantage!

15. Strip poker

Strip poker is one of the most popular relationship games you can enjoy together. If you want the game to be as fair as possible, assign clothing to a specific number of chips. So for instance, a shirt could equal to 1 chip.

This way, nobody is at an advantage or disadvantage when one of you is wearing fewer pieces of clothing than the other. Strip poker is also generally more fun with alcohol, so feel free to buy yourselves a bucket of beer while you’re at it! [Read: Want a really fun date night? Try these drinking games for two]
