In this video I have another creative date idea for you. Do you struggle to come up with fun different date ideas? Always revert back to dinner and a movie or “Netflix and Chill” as your date idea? That is why I wrote a book called “101 Creative Dates: Ideas, tips, and personal experiences from the life of a hopeless romantic”. I compiled a list of 101 different date ideas to help up your dating game. Whether you are married or single, there is something for everyone.

That brings us to this date idea #37 Board Game Night

One thing I love to do is play board games, from Settlers of Catan, to 7 Wonders, to Dominion, along with some of the classics like Monopoly or Risk. If your date happens to like board games, it makes for a great group date activity. Game nights are bound to have lots of laughs, friendly banter, and a chance to show off some gaming skills, trivia knowledge, or Pictionary prowess—it all depends on what you play. I have a group of friends that I regularly play with; we always wind up having a great night, although sometimes it can get pretty competitive!

What you need for this date:

You need some awesome board games to play, a place to play them, probably some snacks, and you guessed it, treats.

My experience with this date:

A few years ago one of my best friends, Gabe, invited me over to his house for a board game date night. Him and his wife had a blind date lined up for me. I am no stranger to blind dates, and am generally okay with the idea of getting set up with someone I don’t know, especially in a low-pressure environment like a game night. The evening was fun; we played a cooperative board game called Robinson Crusoe, which had us all on the same team trying to beat the board. Co-op games, as they are called, are especially good if you want the competitive spirit to be wrangled in. My date was attractive (well done, Gabe, on the set-up), but we really didn’t connect that well. At least that’s how it was for me, which is a shame because I found out from Gabe that she wanted me to ask her out afterwards.
