This favorite cult card game has one goal: to elicit the ridiculous answers to random questions possible!

Each round, one player reads a scenario or a question from a card, and then everyone else must provide the *best* response from their cards.

From clever to downright disgusting, each round is different.

2. Pick your Poison

If you’re looking for a game that will make you and your guests laugh over how uncomfortable you are, Pick Your Poison is for you!

This hilarious adult version of “would you rather” will present players with some awful albeit hilarious choices that will ultimately have you all getting to know one another on a very different level.

This classic drinking game is fun and sets the mood for couples game nights.

This straightforward game lets you and your guests learn fun things about one another.

You will find it funny to learn scandalous things about people they would likely not otherwise tell you!

Plus, with a bit of alcohol, everything is five times funnier.

Late Night Games for Couples

1. Midnight Outburst

Couples' game

You may remember playing “Outburst,” the kid-friendly version of Midnight Outburst as a child.

The premises are similar – groups must try to name as many top ten answers on a card as possible quickly.

However, the subject matter in the midnight outburst is a little racier.

From topics like “Slang for marijuana” to “Things some people swallow, and some don’t,” you’re guaranteed a lot of laughs as you and your teammates try to guess as many correct answers as possible.

Midnight Outburst will make a great party game for married couples.

2. Joking Hazard

This game is great fun for everyone, whether you are a player or a judge for that round!

The premise is simple, flip a card off the deck, have the judge add a 2nd card to get the mini-comic strip started, and then all remaining players secretly submit their card to finish the strip.

The judge then picks the best card to complete the comic!

This game is like cards against humanity but with pictures and gives the judging player more involvement!
