Newlywed game questions and how to play at home

Now that you've said, "I Do," there's no better way to get to know your person and get closer as husband and wife, than playing a fun game.

These newlywed game questions will test you and your spouse’s knowledge of each other, and maybe even help you learn something new about the person you’re spending the rest of your life with.

Inspired by the famous 1960s game show, "The Newlywed Game," these questions are designed to bring out you and your spouse’s competitive sides, and can provide hours of entertainment.

The game adds a fun twist to everything from a quiet evening at home to a wild party with your friends. You could even use these questions to add an entertaining addition to your bridal shower, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, or wedding reception.

But since it is the Newlywed Game, why not save these for a fun night in with your friends or family? If you have other couples in your inner circle, you could even go head to head to see who has the closest relationship.

How to Play the Newlywed Game at Home

There are a few different ways to play the game.

With these questions, you could each prepare your answers in advance, since you might need some time to think. But it can be fun to try and keep the answers as quick-fire responses to see how your partner really feels before they have time to correct themselves.

However you choose to play, the rules are simple:

  • A designated host calls out the questions while each partner takes turns writing down their answer or using the responses they prepared earlier (no peeking!).
  • The couple reveals their answers and sees if their responses match.
  • For every correct answer or matching response, they get a point.
  • After the preferred number of rounds, with a set number of questions in each round, the couple with the most points wins!

Now that you know the rules, which couple knows each other best?
