Lovey-Dovey Win It In A Minute

Husbands Versus Wives Game Night Challenge!

Valentine’s Win it in a Minute

This Valentine party date night is a healthy competition between the husbands and the wives. These games will have the husband and wife facing off, unscrambling love words, singing love songs, enjoying a kissing contest, a dance-off, and much more.

The last several years, I have hosted or have been invited to a Valentine’s Day party. I have the best group of friends and we always have an amazing time! A couple years ago my cute friend threw an over-the-top Valentine’s party and she gave me the ‘ok’ to share her party ideas with all of you! I added a few of my own ideas and together we are going to make you the hostess with the mostest! Seriously, get ready to throw the best Valentine’s Day party ever! You might just make this a tradition!

For the games, we split up into two teams: husbands against wives. The key to having a healthy competition is a fabulous prize and a great group of players! The winning team got a girls or a guys night out while the losers got to sit at home with the kids, very enticing!

Each team would take turns grabbing a game card and reading it off out loud.

We added several new games, ideas, and fabulous printables by Carisa at Messes to Memories that include game cards, game slips, invites, and hostess ideas. 

Everything you need for a Valentine's Day game night with friends.

Win It In A Minute Competition

We also thought it would be a little more fun to make the competition a little more personal. The winning spouse can be rewarded with a wish they desire by their spouse, these wishing cards will be found with their invites. The husband and the wife will place their wish in their back pocket or purse right before they leave for game night. {I wished for a nap and a clean house… high roller, right?!}

Each guest will also receive a love note card with their invite. They will write a very sweet note before the party and when they arrive at the party they will blow up a balloon and place the love note into a balloon and write their spouse’s name on that balloon. Once the games are over each spouse will search for the balloon with their name written all over it, pop it, and grab their note. You might need a little love after all the competition 😉

Valentine Party Games

We loved all of the games we played, so we kept all of them and added quite a few more! The idea behind so many games is that you probably won’t want to play the same games every year, right?! So there are plenty to rotate through each year. Pick out 13 games this year, next year 13 more, then the year after, use the 13 games that you used the first year. Continue to rotate the games every year, they’ll never get old!

There are 26 game cards. Feel free to pick out your favorites or play all of them! Use a paper trimmer to easily cut out the cards. Fold in half and use a glue stick or another adhesive to adhere the front to the back of the card. {This makes them sturdy and pretty – WIN!}

These printables are amazing, aren’t they? A huge round of applause for Carisa at Messes to Memories for putting them together. She took on a huge project and she rocked it!

Everything you need to be an amazing host is written down for you. We have explained the games detail by detail, the items needed for each game, ideas to prepare for the night, what to send along with the invites, information to collect when your friends RSVP, certain games that go with particular slips, and any other little detail that you need to pull this night off perfectly. It’s all included in the printable so you can have a physical reminder but having a visual of how things will look can be helpful (and motivational, too) so you just might want to save this whole post on Pinterest as an easy reference!

Many of the games require items to be filled out, words to unscramble, or questions to be asked. You will also find the banner pieces and heart dart board in these pages as well. All you need to supply is the pens and we’ve got the rest covered. These slips are explained in more detail in the Hostess Instructions.

  1. Thank you so much for this. I have a question though. When a team draws a couples challenge, does just one couple do that challenge or do all the couples take turns doing that challenge. And do the teams earn points together or do the couples accrue points separately ?

    1. Hi Susie! The first question depends on the amount of time you have. I personally would only have one couple perform the couple challenge, this will save on time and boredom. Since this is a guys against girls competition the winning team wins the point, keeps the competition between guys and girls going! You are so welcome, enjoy your party! xox

  2. So happy I found this. We will start our annual V-day party this year. I’m super excited. How many couples did you guys have at your party? How many do you feel is too many?

    1. LaRhonda, I’m excited for you!!! I think there was about 10 or 12 couples. Luckily our friends rented out their neighborhood club house for the night and we all fit perfectly. I think 12-13 couples is the perfect size, if you have enough room. Enjoy your party! xox

  3. I have been dying to find something like this! We are having our monthly date night out on the 12th (helps to avoid the crowds too!). I wanted to have something to do on Valentines night…so excited!!!! Y’all are being so helpful in meeting my New Year’s Marriage Resolution! We just did our January date night yesterday with y’alls help & I can’t wait to keep getting help for the rest of this year (& beyond!)!!
