How to Play the Newlywed Game Questions for Men, Women, and Couples
The Newlywed Game is a classic that debuted on television in 1966. Since its birth, there have been many different variations, therefore, the rules to this game can be mixed up to your liking.
We have prepared a simple game variation that you can follow, but feel free to tweak the rules and questions to the needs of your group. Make sure you add some of your own personalized questions to make things interesting for the said couple. You can draw some inspiration from the bridal shower games for large groups as well.
Let’s see how to play the newlywed game!
- Split the group into three or four teams of couples.
- One person should be elected as the game host (maybe this will be the lonely one).
- Each couple will be competing to win the game by gaining the most points.
- For the first round, the women should leave the room. The host should pick four questions from the husband round list to ask the guys. (More questions can be asked if you choose).
- After the guys have given their answers, the women should reappear.
- The host should ask each question once again giving the women a chance to match with their partner.
- Each correct match gains five points.
For the second round, the guys should leave the room and the game continues the same as the first round until it’s time for the last question.
- That question should be one of the two-part bonus questions from the list.
- When the guys reappear, they will compete in the same as the first round with the exception of the bonus question.
- When it’s time for the bonus question the team will receive five points for each correct answer, so if they match both answers correctly they will gain ten points.
In the end, the team with the most points wins the game.
You can set the points up however you would like and the bonus questions can be asked in either the wife or the husband round. You might want to use bonus questions in both rounds but double the points in the second round. There is really no right or wrong way to play this game just remember to have a great time in getting to know each other better!
