Group Game Night: The Newlywed Game

How many of you look for new, fun ways to spice up your activity nights with your small group of friends? If you are in a small group meeting somewhat regularly, you’ve probably had this struggle. I know our group has on more than one occasion. I google and google and find things that look like fun, but they either cost a lot or take way too much work to set up. So, I created a SIMPLE game for our small group’s Valentine’s Day celebration this year!

Are you familiar with The Newlywed Game Show from the 60s and 70s? If not, check out this clip about the show to learn a little more. The questions were modernized, but the idea is still the same: How well do you really know this person you’ve vowed to spend your life with?

If you’re looking for an activity for your small group, family, or group of friends who get together once in a blue moon, look no further. You can find all you need on this blog post!
