At home date nights are great options for the season of little kids at home or just trying to save some money. But what I don’t like about at home date nights is that it is easy to get into the habit of just watching a movie. I like mixing things up! That’s why I like the idea of date night card games. There are so many two player card games that work great for couples.
Whether you enjoy more traditional board games like Monopoly or your man is a lover of golf there is a card game out there for everyone! I am sure you can find something that you both will enjoy. Here are some of the fun card game for couples that I recommend.
Card Games For Couples
Most of us have a deck of cards laying around. Good news is there are many games to be played with that one deck of cards. We can have many date nights just with this one supply. Below are some card games for couples.
Egyptian Rat Screw
Beggar My Neighbor
You can check out descriptions and instructions for all of the card games above.
More Date Night Card Games
If you are wanting to switch some things up to play some card games that aren’t the same ol’ deck of cards you have had around the house for years. Here are a few fun card games for couples you can grab off of Amazon.
Monopoly Deal: If you like playing Monopoly, but no one else will play it with you because it takes too long this is a good alternative. The box claims it only takes 15 minutes to play. Much like the board game you collect properties.
Snappy Dressers: You can play this game up to ten different ways. There is even an option for a one player game. The gist of the game is that you quickly identify what is same about the characters on the card.
Perpetual Commotion: Both players are contributing at the same time and it can get a little crazy. Although it has won a lot of awards for a kid game, adults have just as much fun!
Play Nine: If your guy is a golf lover and you just aren’t into going out on the green with him try this game out. It is easy to play and uses math strategies to try to get your hand of cards to the lowest amount possible.
Fake News: Read a headline or a news clip then decide if it is real news or fake news. You both will be surprised to learn which is which. If you stay up to date in the news or purposefully avoid it you can enjoy this game.
Bold: Use your memory to gain points. Then choose to risk it for more or take the reward. People love this game because they get to be risky without any real risks beyond the game. Give it a try on your next date night card games.
There are so many options to choose from for date night card games! For the cost of one movie ticket you can have hours of fun together. Not to mention you can play the game multiple times or have a couples game night with friends!

For sure, Cynthia, these are great options for company or planning a couples date night. I wrote a post awhile back about 4 easy ways to plan a couples game night. Feel free to check it out!
Ah! Nothing beats a romantic rainy date night inwith UNO! Especially now with the christmas decorations and the fairy lights, all you need is snacks and a pint and we are all set! Lovely post! I need to organize a night like that asap!
You are pretty right, Chelf, about UNO being a good option. It is always fun. I think my husband brought that deck of cards into our marriage.
Katherine Hackworthy says
Ohh, these card games sounds very fun and interesting! I have to save this and let my husband play it with me! ♥
Katherine, that is a great idea! Show the post to your husband and let him plan the next date night card games.
I love card games so I’m happy to be introduced to so many new ones! I tend to default to old standards like Cribbage and Gin Rummy so some new games are definitely needed.
Hi Nellwyn- I have to agree. I grew up playing Rummy and Spoons. Give me a traditional deck of cards and I can come up with something to do!

My boyfriend and I actually had a Monopoly night last Friday. We rarely play board games together so it was actually a nice night. 🙂 Fake News sounds like something I would enjoy – I’d never heard of it until now. xx
I’m with you, Christie, a good game of Monopoly occasionally is fun! Yes, Fake News is a good card game to get variety.
Loved all the card games you suggested.Monopoly is still a favourite.Old is Gold really for us .
It’s hard to go wrong with Monopoly, isn’t it? I haven’t heard of Old is Gold. I will look into it. Thank you for the suggestion!
