How to Play The Newlywed Game
In short, you can easily play The Newlywed Game in a group date night setting, similar to the way that it is traditionally played on the TV show. However, there are a few unique twists and adjustments we’ve made to make this game work in a variety of settings. For example, the printables and questions in the set below would easily work as Newlywed Game questions for a bridal shower. Not only that, but we have a fun printable invitation that you can use to invite your favorite couples over! Start there, and then get into the actual game once everyone has arrived. Buckle up, it’s going to be an incredibly fun night seeing who knows their spouse best while playing The Newlywed Game!
To recap, you’ve made a guest list and invited your favorite couple friends over. Next, you need to print and laminate enough answer cards for each player to have throughout the game. Additionally, don’t forget to grab some dry erase markers. Then, you are set to play!
By the way, we highly recommend ensuring some quality snacks to munch on during your game night. Because who will say no to yummy snacks? Nobody! You can easily assign each couple to bring something to share so that the load is not all on you. And without a doubt, everyone will leave with a permanent grin on their faces AND a full belly. Additionally, if you’re using these Newlywed Game questions for a bridal shower, it would be so fun to have some coordinating decor and food to go with both the husbands and the wives. Doesn’t that sound cute?
When your group arrives, (or if you’re using these Newlywed Game questions for a bridal shower, when all the party guests arrive) it is time to play! Start by having the wives leave the playing area. Make sure they cannot hear their husband’s answers. Then, ask the husbands a question and have them write it down on their laminated answer sheets. The next step is to bring the wives back in the room with the husbands and ask them the same question. If the couple’s answers match, then they get a point!
The game continues by asking more questions and keeping track of each team’s score. However, you can alternate and send the husbands away while the wives answer and vice versa. Additionally, you can play as many rounds as you want. With the 40 Newlywed Game questions below, you have plenty of rounds available to play!
A Fun Night For You and Your Spouse
This at-home Newlywed Game is just as much fun with a big group of people (or using this set as Newlywed Game questions for a bridal shower) as it is with just your sweetie! You can easily skip the group invites, house cleaning, and game night organizing and just plop down on your couch for a fun at-home Newlywed Game show night with your spouse. (However, we highly recommend you don’t skip on the treats! 😉 ) In short, this date night idea of using these Newlywed Game questions just between the two of you will be a night you don’t forget!
If you’re wondering how to play The Newlywed Game with just you and your spouse, then simply choose 10 different questions from the question bank without peeking at the questions. Then, read each question out loud and use the printable answer sheets to write your answers down at the same time.
After you have written all your answers to the 10 questions, go question by question and compare answers! Be prepared for some laughs and a few surprises, too! 😉
In the end, this fun game is meant to bring you closer to your sweetie over shared experiences, favorite things, and hilarious memories. Newlywed or not, it’s fun to analyze what you think you do (or don’t!) know about your spouse! Hopefully, you learn a little more about your spouse and have some fun along the way!
