Question games

These fun drinking games for couples are an exciting way to get to know each other. No matter how long you’ve been together, there’s always something new to learn!

1. Never Have I Ever

One of the best drinking games for fun revelations, Never Have I Ever works just as well for couples as friends. Start out by saying something you’ve never done - if your significant other has, they take a drink! Get ready for some naughty new info.

2. Two Truths and a Lie

As simple as it sounds, this classic game will test how well you really know each other. Think of two facts about yourself and one lie, and answer questions while your partner guesses which is the lie! Take a shot each time you guess wrong.

3. Trivia

Put a twist on this classic quiz game by asking each other questions about your relationship. See if your significant other remembers the date of your first kiss, or the first person to say “I love you.” You can also test how well you know each other by asking them questions about yourself with these Newlywed Game ideas. Drink for every wrong answer!

4. Most Likely To

Awards season has arrived! Prepare some titles in advance, like “Person most likely to... Forget to shower for a week,” or “Person most likely to... Win an Oscar” on pieces of paper. Shake them up in a bag or bowl, read them together, and point to the winner as quickly as you can. Every time you disagree, you drink! This fun game lets you see what your partner really thinks of you. Mix serious and flirty questions for a Russian Roulette-style surprise.

5. Truth or Drink

This simple game puts a boozy spin on the party classic Truth or Dare. Ask your significant other whatever personal questions spring to mind, and vice versa. Don’t want to answer? Drink instead!

6. Anchorman 

Choose a word that is off-limits for the evening. Every time someone says the word, they take a drink. This game encourages you to pay attention to the conversation and is surprisingly difficult depending on the word you choose! 

Classic games

Some of the best drinking games are rowdy twists on the classics. Make your next date one to remember with flirty game night ideas. From board games to drawing, nothing is off-limits!

7. Twister

It’s time to get flexible! Show your partner your best moves with this laugh-a-minute game. Twister is the perfect balance of intimacy and fun. Take a drink every time you fall or stumble and you won’t be sober for long.

8. Strip Poker

Add another layer to this striptease card game. Every time you remove a piece of clothing, you also have to drink! One of the most competitive and sexy couple games around.

9. Jenga

Build up the fun until it all comes crashing down. It’s impossible to keep a straight face while playing this simple game. Every time the tower falls, the player responsible takes a drink. Don’t blame us if your skills only get worse each time!

10. Pictionary

To make Pictionary a two-player game, use an app, prepare a deck of cards with suggestions, or just use your imagination to generate ideas to draw. One person lets their creativity flow while the other partner guesses. Set a timer and if the other player doesn’t guess correctly, you lose - so drink!

11. Snakes and ladders

Buy a board on Amazon, roll the dice, and take your chances. Make your own rules depending on how wild you want to get. One drink could be for each ladder you fall down, or for each square you pass. Welcome to the jungle!

12. Charades 

Take turns acting out a movie, book, or phrase while your partner tries to guess what you’re saying. If they guess incorrectly, they drink. It may sound easy but as the booze kicks in — it’s hard! 

13. Eye contact 

If you’re interested in getting tipsy quick — this might be the one for you! You know how it works. You blink or break eye contact with your partner, and you drink! 

14. Power Hour 

This is a good one if you want to at least attempt to pace yourself! Every minute, you take a sip of your drink. By the end of the hour, you should be well into your wine and have a good time. 

15. Kings 

Break out the pack of cards, it’s time to play Kings! The classic set of rules works really well when you’re in a group, but you can easily reassign the rules to suit if it’s just you and your partner playing. For example, instead of six meaning that all girls drink, you can change it to a Truth or Dare question!

16. The Alphabet Game 

Choose a category and go back and forth as you start working your way through the alphabet. If you can’t think of something within five seconds, you drink and start again!

17. Sip and Spell 

It’s time for a boozy spelling bee. Each person takes a turn spelling a word that their partner chooses. If they spell it correctly, they’re safe. If they make a mistake, it’s time to drink. 

18. The Name Game 

It’s time to brush up on pop culture. Take turns saying a celebrity name, the other person must say another celebrity whose first name starts with the first letter of the previous celebrity’s last name. If you can’t think of a name within a couple of seconds or repeats a name, take a drink!

19. Battle Shots 

This is a fun twist on the classic Battle Ship board game but with shots instead of ships. Set up a grid of cups representing your “ships”. Each of you takes turns guessing the coordinates to “sink” their opponent’s ships. When a ship is hit, you have to drink the shot! 

High-energy drinking games for couples

Playfulness is great for a relationship and these high-energy party games will bring you closer than ever. From the competitive to the intimate, look no further for the best drinking games to get you up and out of your seat.

20. Beer pong

This college classic works just as well as a two-player game as in a group. Shake things up by combining beer pong with flip cup, or take things to the next level by replacing the red cups with shot glasses.

21. You laugh, you lose

Set a timer for 60 seconds (or longer) and use every weapon at your disposal to get your partner to laugh, while they do their best to keep a straight face. Sing, show them videos, give them a funny lap dance, tickle their most sensitive body part... The only rule is to maintain eye contact! If you laugh, you drink.

22. Spin the bottle

Make Spin the Bottle a two-player drinking game by arranging cards or other markers in a circle between you and your significant other. Assign your own rules to each one and spin the bottle. Maybe one card means you remove a piece of clothing, or another means you have to give your partner a lap dance. Whatever the bottle lands on, don’t forget to take a shot!

23. Russian Roulette 

This classic game has recently been given a fun twist on TikTok — so why not try it out? Line up some shot glasses and fill some with vodka (or any other clear alcohol and the others with water. If you take a shot of vodka, try not to show it on your face and then your partner has to guess if it was alcoholic or not. If they guess wrong, they have to drink! 

24. Drunk Mario Kart 

Play a game with Mario Kart with a twist! If you get hit by an item or fall off the track, take a drink. Keep a tally of how many drinks your partner has to take at the end of each round — our guess is no one will come out of Rainbow Road victorious! 

25. Bobbing for booze

This one may get a little bit messy but is a great twist on the Halloween classic. Fill a bucket with a mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Each couple takes turns bobbing for drinks using only their mouths — whatever they retrieve they drink! 

26. Drunk karaoke 

Maybe it just takes a few drinks to unlock your inner superstar! This one is perfect for double dates, with one couple singing a duet and the other couple rating their performances. The couple with the worst score has to drink! 

27. Hands off
