Recent digital housekeeping (to relieve my overburdened hard drive) uncovered a long lost game! Some years back the sex loving geek in me threw together a board game to play with Jane on one of our all-too-infrequent date nights.

The rules are simple enough; a single die is thrown on each turn, and it plays like a basic board game. Keep your places on the board with pieces borrowed from another game, chocolate kisses, whatever. But you’ll have to do some prep work before throwing the first die.

The board itself is pretty tame and would even be suitable for new couples looking to break some ice. Download it here and print it on standard 8½ x 11 office paper. Game play can get as hot as you like with the personalized cards you’ll make… this also gives you the option to vary the game every time you play!

Each player creates 12 game cards (could be scraps of paper); 6 “Discussion” cards, 6 “Action” cards. Keep the cards’ content secret from your partner until game time. All 24 cards are then placed on the board face down in two shuffled piles; one Action stack, one Discussion stack.

Game CardsWe went a little geek-overboard and printed ours on the back of some old business cards (I was able to dig them up too!). Click the image of our samples to see them a bit more clearly.

Sample Action / Discussion card content follows, but you are free to create anything you wish. When your partner picks your cards fun things can happen! But keep in mind that you might draw your own cards!

Action Cards (Sample Ideas):
· Caress/Massage body part of your partner’s choice for 5 minutes. Use a timer.
· Tie your partner’s hands behind their back and feed them one of your body parts.
· Grant one wish to your partner that can be fulfilled right now.
· Allow your partner to watch you masturbate for 90 seconds. Use a timer.
· This game ends in sex. Retrieve a toy (or object) that you might like to use together at the end the game.
· Leave the room, insert a butt plug, and come back.
· Coach your partner through performing three techniques that make receiving oral sex very good for you.
· Allow you partner to take a [faceless] picture of you doing something sexual. Be creative or accept direction, the picture should be something that might turn your partner on at a later date.

Discussion Cards (Sample Ideas):
· Talk about the best sex you ever had. Why, specifically, was it so good?
· Share a sexual desire or fantasy that might surprise your partner. Discuss the plausibility of exploring this desire together.
· Start a dialogue about masturbation. Does it make you feel like you are somehow cheating on your partner? How does your partner’s masturbation make you feel about them, yourself, and your relationship?
· Pick a sexual subject and start a dialogue about it.
· Confess something that your partner does not know.
· If you could do anything you wanted to your partner right now, what would it be?
· Talk about something specific your partner can do to improve YOUR sex life. Ask this question of your partner.

Alternate Game Play
We’ve played a similar game but without the game board. Creating the cards runs along the same lines but you toss all the cards into a hat and play a classic game of checkers instead. Rules follow:
· When your piece is captured you must draw a card
· If your King is captured you must draw two cards
· When your partner gets a King you must draw a card
· If you win the game you pick three cards for the loser, can be new or already played

The key to these games is a focus on fun, so go have it… and let us know how it works out!!
