Just because you lost your friends to babies and PTA meetings and the no-man’s land that is suburbia doesn’t mean you and your significant other can’t have some good, old-fashioned, college-style drinking fun. You don’t need those losers with their stable lives and 10 p.m. bedtimes to play drinking games, you just need a 30-rack of beer and your honey. Here, the best drinking games for couples to play totally on their own, no dumb friends needed.
It’s not hard to adapt beer pong to a one-on-one game—just take partners out of the equation and go head-to-head in a cup-sinking battle to the death. Compare work grievances and talk Sunday dinner plans over a game or two. Loser does the dishes.
After sitting on the couch binging Netflix, dig into the cushions and pull out a quarter—there’s definitely one in there. Then, add some spice to your monotonous existence by using that coffee table/dining table/foot rest/junk mail holder to play a rousing game of one-on-one quarters. Loser takes out the trash.
