The Not-So-Newlywed Game Date Night 

The Newlywed Game is back with a twist! Testing newlyweds on how well they know each other is fun and all, but the REAL test is the test of TIME! This classic Newlywed Game takes a twist in focusing on those who have been married for some time and are now NOT so newlywed!

The Newlywed Game is a classic game that has stood the test of time for a REASON! Not only do you learn so much about your spouse but it is just plain HILARIOUS some of the answers & shocking stories that can come out!

With over 50 different questions available and some pretty amazing printables designed by Courtney {All Things Bright & Beautiful – we LOVE her!!} you have everything you need to play this game either in a group setting or for a couple’s date night!


To Play in a Group Setting 

Start by inviting your favorite long-time married couples using this invite!

 Isn’t Courtney’s design so fun? I love the retro look!


Print and laminate enough of these answer cards for each player to have one. An ideal group for this game would be 3-4 couples.  You will also want to grab some dry erase markers so the players can write their answers on these during the game!


When your group arrives – the fun begins! Invite the wives away from 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 points {you can determine how many}!


You can use this amazing scorecard to keep track of each couple’s score! I definitely recommend laminating this scorecard to be able to play again and again! The team with the most points at the end of the game – WINS!

The game continues with asking more questions but sending the husbands away while the wife answers! You can play as many rounds as you want and with over 50 questions to choose from it will NEVER get dull!

To Play as a Couple 

Playing with other couples is a blast, but this also makes a great date night at home too!


To play as a couple, simply choose 10 different questions from the question bank {without peeking!}. Read each question out loud and have you and your spouse write your answers down on the printable answer sheets at the same time. After you have written all your answers to the 10 questions – go question by question & compare answers!


So fun! Right? My husband and I still consider ourselves Newlyweds but we still played and had a blast! We just took out the questions about raising kids & such that don’t apply {yet!}. I hope you have as much fun playing as we did! I DEFINITELY learned some new things about my spouse that I didn’t know!
