I agree Laura, a great, non-budget-straining way to have fun together.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

The game Sorry has turned in all out war. We usually end up playing 2 games so the "loser" can get paybacks. It's fun. We also have a dart board in out kitchen so that is another fun game to play. It's a fun way to spend time together when you are on a budget.

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy

I love this thread! My dh and I love to spend time together playing games as well. As I have stopped overeating my "trigger foods" (mostly sugar), I find that I am enjoying simple pleasures again. One of them is playing games. I like the ideas listed in the original post, IAM_HIS.

Laura - what fun! My dh and I tease each other too, mostly about who will win the game, and who is better at that particular game.

When we have "stay at home date night" we usually play games. I just bought 2 new ones last week. I got Clue and Sorry. I haven't played either since I was a kid.
I love it when we play games we usually turn music on and play. It usually ends in a laughing fest, lots of smack talk, and teasing...the good kind of teasing no hurt feelings.
We usually plan a special dinner too.

Marriage Building Games
By Laurie Swenson

The perfect marriage, like all other perfect things, does not exist. Marriage is an ongoing learning experience that requires some work. That does not mean, however, that the work has to feel like a chore. Marriage building games can help a couple strengthen their marriage in enjoyable ways that can help them feel closer.

Game Night



Sitting at a table together playing games can be a cozy experience, whether you're playing Yahtzee, Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit. It's a time when outside distractions are minimal and you can relax and have fun.

If you choose to play relationship games, you can go for depth with the Ungame, a board game that encourages communication and has a couples version as well as the original.

Get Moving

In tennis, the score starts out as love-love.

Play tennis, racquetball, golf or other games where you can play as a pair. Be competitive but have fun alone together. You can also do this at home with a Nintendo Wii console and games such as Wii Sports, Wii Fit, EA Sports Active and Just Dance, which keep you off the sofa and on your feet together.

Trust Building Exercises

Trusting that someone is there to catch you can be very freeing.

Trust is important in marriage, which is the most important partnership of your life. In a Trust Lean, one partner falls backward, trusting that he will be caught by his partner. Running Free puts one person in a blindfold while her partner leads her around, starting with slow walking and graduating to running. In Proximity, two people stand facing each other, a few feet away. They gradually move toward each other and think about how it feels, then reverse the process.

Create Intimacy In "Soul Gazing," you stare into each other's eyes, trying to see into the core of each other. Do this for two minutes and discuss what you felt you saw.
