What Is The Newlywed Game?

The newlywed game is a fun party game that quizzes the newlywed or about-to-be married couple. It covers a range of topics from their first dates to their favorite things and much more.

How To Play The Newlywed Game?

There are a few ways you can play the newlywed game. You could select several questions and ask them to each spouse separately. This is a good approach if you’re playing informally but will require them to come up with answers on the spot if you’re playing the game at an event.

A better idea, if you’re at an event, is to get them to email their answers to you separately. Then you can ask each of them to guess what the other one answered, which will make a fun game at a wedding for instance.

To keep the score, you award a point for every answer guessed correctly and tally up the points at the end. The person with the most points wins. You can use this approach whether you’re playing the game informally or at an event.
