Board games kept us busy as kids while our parents were doing what adults do. Now, as adults, funnily enough, board games still give the fun we had when we were innocent little boys and girls.
The difference is that there is a bunch of adult board games that appeal to the mature audience. Monopoly is still popular, no matter what age, of course, but if you’re looking to spice things up, consider these adult board games for couples.
At the very least, they will add an element of fun to your relationship.
Do you like playing Scrabble? It’s a great way of widening your vocabulary, but it’s also a very competitive board game. If you want a faster-paced, more competitive word game similar to Scrabble, then Bananagrams will give you the challenge you crave.
What makes it different from Scrabble is that players race each other to build crossword grids. While it can accommodate up to 8 players, you and your word-loving partner can spend quality time together playing Bananagrams.
The discovery Game: for a married couple
Married couples, or couples who have been together for a long time, usually reach a stage when they think they know each other so well that they reach a plateau in their relationship. If you are in this stage, and you want to go to another level, you can check out The discovery Game: for a married couple.
“Date night in a box” is how the makers describe the game, so if you’re desperate for date night, it’s worth a try. At the very least, you’ll have something else to talk about other than how bad the commute was to and from the office.
TABLETOPICS Couples: Questions to Start Great Conversations

It contains 135 questions, so if you pace it right, you’ll have new things to talk about with your partner for quite some time.
I’ve Never Board Game Adult Version
A classic board game tailored specifically for adults, I’ve Never Board Game Adult Version will certainly spice things up. It can be played with friends, but you and your SO will have a more intimate night if only the two of you play.
Of course, there is the chance that you might shock each other – which can go either way, good or bad – but keep an open mind and remember that the point is to have fun.
For a more intimate game, Sex Stack is a popular option. Again, it’s not a board game in the traditional sense. It’s actually more like Jenga, but the adult version.
The name says it all.

Perhaps even more popular than Sex Stack, Sexopoly – an Adult Board Game for Couples is the adult version of Monopoly – sort of.
The board game requires you to strategize and rely on luck at the same time. Just like Monopoly, Sexopoly challenges your business acumen, with the added twist of sexy challenges. If your relationship is lacking in the fiery department, this game will certainly fix that.
