Scrabble sent us a game to review and my first thought was oooh fun date night activity. I did a poll on my social media and Scrabble actually came up tops for couple game night ideas.
This is lucky seeing as Scrabble sponsored this post and if anyone else came out tops it would be…. awwwwkard. Anyways, here are some tips on how to host a games night for two.
Firstly the reason for this post is as follows: You know absence makes the heart grow fonder? Well for many of us Covid-19 has reduced that absence. We are just under each other’s feet all the time now (couples living together, I mean) because you can’t really do anything else or go anywhere and many of us are still working from home, so I figured sometimes we need to change out of our house clothes, leave the zoom meeting early and hang out instead of heading for Netflix.
Get rid of the kids
I mean this in a completely non-violent way, of course. Send the kids to bed early; Lock them in their rooms with screen time and snacks. Actually, I don’t really know how you are going to get rid of the kids, but I assure you date nights work better when you don’t have to be interrupted by stories of Minecraft expeditions.
Get out of your house clothes
I’m not saying put on your Sunday best but for the love of a midday shower people, not your Tuesday worst (I’m typing this in my Tuesday worst, on a Wednesday). Basically channel that; my date is coming to pick me up soon energy, for your trip to the lounge.
I honestly don’t feel like I need to explain this. Drinks and snacks are a must. Be cute, pull out the good cheese.
Put off your phone
This is really important and completely possible (unless you are like a trauma doctor on call-or something equally life and death) but otherwise switching your phone off for two hours won’t do any harm
Just hang out
Forget about the debt and the fact that he/she/they can’t figure out how to replace the toilet roll in the bathroom and then kick their behind in a game of Scrabble and flirt a little, just hang out a little
- Scrabble is a really cool board game where you use letter tiles to make words by crossing words already on the board, it can be played by up to four people so if you decide to turn this into a family affair instead, check out my tips for a family game night
