Learning how to spice up your relationships can be the salvation to a dull routine and idle evening spent watching the telly. Our 21st century lifestyle doesn’t exactly leave us with enough energy to head out on the binge during the week, so modern couples are turning to technology to help salvage a disconnected relationship.
Isn’t is terribly annoying when your better half is glued to his or her mobile phone, clutching that smartphone instead of your hand on a boring Monday evening? Well what if they were using their coveted phone to connect with you on a virtual and romantic level?
Modern technology and advancements in the gaming industry have developed smartphone games designed specifically for couples to reconnect and bond with each other once again. Here are some of the top games you can enjoy in hopes of bringing that spark back into your relationship:
Why not take the traditional word building sensation and turn it into a sexy game of Scrabble? Get your partner to download Scrabble onto their smartphone and make up a few rules that only allow each of you to use suggestive language that could help turn a quiet night in, into a long night of ‘Scrabble playing’.
Make up the rules as you go, turn massive point scores into added game changers; for example a top word score could result in a romantic breakfast in bed prepared by the ‘loser’ of the game. This is probably a win-win situation for both parties involved.
Draw Something is quite the innocent game, but you can turn this childish smartphone app into a sultry little number with the images you choose to draw. Play along with the game’s prompts but add something extra to make it pop that little bit more. You’ll be giggling like silly teenagers as you sit across from each other on the couch.
Amp it up a little and use the drawing board for added prompts; a kiss on the cheek, a cuddle before parting ways or even a well-deserved backrub! Let your imagination run wild and keep things interesting.
What’s more fun than playing the fool with your special someone? The correct answer: absolutely nothing. HeadsUp is a multiplayer game that could rack up hours of fun with you and your partner. All you have to do is choose a category, hold your smartphone to your head and let your boyfriend or girlfriend describe, mime or act out the answers for you to answer.
So many funny topics to choose from and if you get really good; you could also unlock the categories of your favourite TV shows, movies or even sports teams; it’s all about the give and take after all.
If you’re a 90s kid, or stayed in tune with your inner child throughout the resurgence of Pokémon in more recent days, you’ll love Pokémon Go. Every trip outside your house; or even the trip to and from the kitchen could result in a series of Pokémon treasures to add to your collection.
This is more of a ‘together’ game if you enjoy the hunt on one device. Get together; take the dog out for a morning or evening stroll and find your Pokémon as you frolic around town. Remember though, you’ve gotta catch them all!
This is where you can show your lover that you’ve got both the looks and the brains to offer – you’re the full package and Trivia Crack can help sort out the wheat from the chaff. If you’re into brains; this one will really turn you on – download Trivia Crack onto your smartphone and let the challenges begin.
From art to sports, history to science, geography to entertainment – there’s sure to be something to suit you. Daily challenges might not be enough though, you might find yourselves sacrificing your routine lunch break check-ins for a mandatory trivia challenge!
Last, but not least, Hangman! A classroom classic that could turn into some great hours of fun. Random shares that could trigger prompts for weekend activities; serve as guessing games for the evening’s dinner selection or even deliver some epic news!
Hangman is a great way to play around with your words, have fun together as you’re supposed to and take the good, the bad and the ugly parts of life with a pinch of salt. Try this one out if you’re looking for something to talk about in your relationship.
Take a time machine back to the good old days where a cheeky note or a funny picture from your crush made your day. Beef that up with the modern technology we’ve got in the palm of our hands today and get your couple goals up with smartphone games to enjoy with your very favourite person.
