The Newlywed Game

A Date Night Twist on the Classic Newlywed Game Show!

The original Newlywed Game TV Show still remains popular all these years later because, let’s face it, it is HIL-AR-IOUS to see the couples’ responses to these very personal newlywed game questions. And even more entertaining—their reactions to their spouse’s answers! The Newlywed Game is a fun game to play for bridal showers, weddings, anniversary parties and, of course, our specialty—DATE NIGHT!The Newlywed Game Date Night

Then, print and laminate enough answer cards for each player to have throughout the game. Grab some dry erase markers too, and you are set to play!

The Newlywed Game Questions For Couples

When your group arrives, it is time to play! Start by having the wives leave the playing area to a place where they cannot hear their husband’s answers. Ask the husbands a question and have them write it down on their laminated answer sheets. Then, bring the wives back & ask them the same question. If the couple’s answers match, they get a point!The Newlywed Game Question Cards

The game continues with asking more questions but this time you will send the husbands away while the wives answer! You can play as many rounds as you want and with 40 questions you have plenty of rounds to play!

Play The Newlywed Game as a Couple

This date night can easily be adapted to play as a couple and is, believe me, JUST as fun!The Newlywed Game Questions

To play with just you and your spouse, simply choose 10 different questions from the question bank without peeking at the questions. Read each question out loud and use the printable answer sheets to write your answers down at the same time.

The Newlywed Game Answer CardsAfter you have written all your answers to the 10 questions, go question by question & compare answers! Be prepared for some laughs and some surprises!

Hopefully you learn a little more about your spouse and have some fun along the way!

    Thank you for all of your hard work. I appreciate the value this website puts on keeping marriages sacred. It is wonderful to have a resource such as yours to keep our relationship vibrant. Thanks again! I have been sharing your website with all my friends to encourage them in thier dating/married lives. Keep up the great work!

  2. The hubby cooked V-day dinner, we ate, then put the baby to bed, and played this game. We had SO much fun!!!! I was very surprised the hubby won! I figured I had that win in the bag! We were shocked that we didn’t know as much as we though we did after 8 years of marraige (been dating 11).

  3. Does each of you answer privately before you start or just let the one asking whether they are correct or not as you go? It’s been too many years since I watched the TV show. 🙂

  4. I used this last night for our date night! It was a blast with no work invovled on the front side! Thank you so much for the free printables of the game. We were both surprised by some of our answers. Date night idea=success!

  5. I love this Idea and hope to do it for a uncoming special date with my husband. Thank you so much for being willing to create and post such a fun, ready-to-go date idea! Unfortunately, when I tried to download it came through all garbled. Is there anyway you could attach the pdf to an email for me and see if that comes through better? I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks so much for your help keeping things romantic on our 25 year marriage!


  6. I printed these out and had them all ready for dinner for the weekend coming up, well my husband ended up getting really sick so instead of playing at dinner we played in the hospital and it worked out great! It really cheered him up and we had some good laughs. Thanks!

  7. Thanks for creating an awesome G-Rated Newlywed game! We are using it for our parents’ 40th wedding anniversary! So excited to find this! THanks for creating awesome stuff and sharing it!

  8. I absolutely love this game and website in general! All the date night ideas are my favorites by far. However, I would love it if a gender neutral Newly Wed game was created. My girlfriend and I have been together for almost two years so I often come to this website to find fun new things to do together. But I’m always a little disheartened when the games are constructed for only heterosexual couples. I understand this website is geared more toward heterosexual couples and if that’s how you lovely ladies would like it to stay, then that’s your right. Just saying inclusivity would keep me coming back more frequently! Thanks again for the hard work and awesome date night ideas!
