Favorite Board Games For Couples To Play For Date Night

Looking for great two-player board games to play with your spouse? Here are our favorite board games for couples to play for date night at home.


Nothing tops a great night of board games when it comes to date night at home. David and I love two-player strategy board games that we can play on a quiet Sunday afternoon during nap time or after Chloe is in bed in the evenings.

We’re big homebodies and like to break out the board games often. We have a lot that can be played just the two of us (many are also really great to play with a larger group).

Board games are a great way to have some fun and get a little competitive with each other, although I have a tendency to get a bit too competitive sometimes ;). We often choose to play cooperative games when it’s just the two of us–it’s so fun to problem solve and play on the same team together.

If you’re looking for a new board game to play as a couple for date night at home, here are some of our current personal favorites!

  1. In light of staying home almost 24 hours a day, the family has really bulked up our board/card game collection. A few that have been added in the past month:

    Pandemic (not the legacy game, but we’ve thought about it)
    Disney Villianous
    Organ Attack
    Escape Room

    For my husband’s birthday in January, I bought him Gloomhaven.

    All really great games. I encourage your readers to try them out!
