Good Date Ideas: Game Night
Card Games Raid your kids' UNO deck and watch your inner competitor come alive. Host a casino night for friends using fake money (with your faces on the bills) that guests can use to bid on door prizes at the end of the night. Looking for something a little more risque? Two words: strip poker.
Interactive Games Games like Guitar Hero or Dance Off get you moving and possibly acting silly, forgetting all the monotony and stress of parenting, which is a good idea for a date with your spouse. You could also rent or borrow a karaoke machine to serenade your love.
Make Up Your Own Games Design a romantic scavenger hunt as a surprise for your mate, bringing you both back to important locales from your past—the spot where he proposed, where you first kissed, the restaurant you went to on your first date, the hospital where your kids were born, your first apartment together, your dream house, etc. Make your date a group event by getting together friends who are also looking for a good date idea and designing your own Amazing Race, with a prize at the end for the first to arrive.
