Game Show: Valentine’s Day

Designed by Freepik

This weekend is Valentine's Day (Sunday, 14th February), so you may be expecting a larger number of couples taking a weekend away.

Of course, you won't want to get in the way of their romantic dinner, but mid-afternoon or later in the evening are perfect opportunities to bring people together for a fun couples gameshow.

Here are three easy-to-prepare Valentine's Day Game Shows:

Relationship Predictions... (Best for young couples)

What You'll Need:

  • Microphone
  • Watch/Stopwatch
  • Scoresheet and Pen
  • Prediction sheets/mini white boards and pens/markers
  • 3-5 couples (your contestants)
  • Swimming Pool and/or buckets of cold water/gunge.
  • Prizes (optional)

How the Game Works:

  • The couples are given challenges. One partner has to secretly predict how the other will perform in each challenge (by writing their prediction on paper and sealing it in an envelope). At the end of the challenge, the predictions are announced and the actual scores revealed. The couple who was furthest away from the prediction is eliminated, either by being pushed into the pool, or by having a bucket of water/gunge thrown over them.

Suggestions for Challenges

  • How many press-ups do you think your partner can do in 60 seconds?
  • How long do you think it will take your partner to say the alphabet backwards without mistakes?
  • How many sports teams do you think your partner can name in 60 seconds?
  • How many general knowledge questions do you think your partner will get right in 60 seconds?
  • How many birthdays do you think your partner remembers from your side of the family?
  • In how many languages do you think your partner can say 'I Love You'?


  • As a drinking game - in your hotel bar. Include all the couples in the bar as contestants. Give the whole room the challenge and tell couples to drink if they predicted wrong.
  • In a lounge - instead of eliminating couples, allow each couple to continue through each challenge. One couple can be crowned victorious at the end of all of your challenges.

How Well Do You Know Your Partner? (Best for older couples)

What You'll Need:

  • Microphone
  • Assistant with Scoresheet and Pen
  • Chairs for couples
  • 3 couples (your contestants)
  • Prizes (optional)

How the Game Works:

  • The couples are introduced and then the ladies are sent out of the room. Whilst the ladies are gone, the husbands are asked 3 questions. When the ladies are brought back in, they are asked the same questions and win points for a matching answer. The men then leave the room and the ladies are then asked 3 questions, which the men will have to guess the answers to when they return.

Suggestions for Questions

  • Where was your first date?
  • Which member of your partner's family would you not want to be stuck in an elevator with?
  • What was your partner's childhood dream job?
  • If you could make one thing bigger and one thing smaller about your partner, what would you choose?
  • What was the name of your partner's first girlfriend/boyfriend?
  • What was the name of your partner's last girlfriend/boyfriend before meeting you?
  • What is your partner's favourite thing about you?
  • What is your partner's most irritating habit?
  • What is your partner's most endearing quality?
  • Which of these movies best describes your love life: Superman, Mission Impossible, Gone In Sixty Seconds, PeeWee's Big Adventure
  • Where is the most memorable/unusual place you've ever made love?
  • What is your wife's bra size?

Swingers - The Bar Game... (Best for singles)

What You'll Need:

  • Microphone

How the Game Works:

  • In a lounge/bar the host calls out conditions and players must find someone else in the room who matches that criteria. This is an ice-breaker game and can introduce your guests to lots of other people in a short amount of time. At the end of the game, you've got conversations flowing and you might even have set a few things in motion... So move away and let the magic happen!

Suggestions for Matches

  • Same eye/hair colour
  • Someone wearing jeans/trainers/a dress/glasses
  • Someone from Europe/America/specific country
  • Someone the same age as you
  • Someone with a name beginning with the same letter as yours
  • Someone who has watched [name a film]
  • Someone who likes [name a song/artist]
