Although a date night at home spent playing board games with your partner might not necessarily sound like the most exciting evening, with the right games, you and your S.O. will be in for a fun and flirty evening. No, that doesn't mean pulling out your old Monopoly or Clue set from the hall closet. Instead, think sexy games specifically created for couples to enjoy together. 

While it might feel silly to buy a romantic game for you and your partner, don't knock it until you try it. You never know when the game might come in handy, and they're just the thing to pull out on nights at home when the power is out or when you want to inject a bit of levity and excitement into your relationship. Not only are they a good time, but they're also a chance for you and your special someone to connect on a level that perhaps you haven't in a while.
