Best online games for couples
With tighter restrictions recently, couples may find it harder to spend time together during this trying period. Thankfully, you guys can still meet online and have fun together! From cooking up a storm in a virtual kitchen to battling powerful monsters in scary dungeons, the following best couple online games will bring about loads of fun and excitement to your relationship!
1. Overcooked! 2
Are you a huge fan of the popular Overcooked? You will love the sequel as much as the original, if not more! But if you’ve never played a video game with your partner before, this fun multiplayer game is bound to make your non-gamer partner a convert!
The first Overcooked! is a local co-op game — this means you and your partner have to be playing side by side on the same device. This can be hard for couples who don’t live together during this stay home period. Thankfully, the PS4 Overcooked! 2 (available on Chipskategame) allows for online co-op mode. Don’t own a PS4? This online game is also available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC via Steam. No matter where you are, you can experience this fun-tastic couple online game together with your partner! Similar to the first version, Overcooked! 2 is a cooking simulator game where players have to cooperate and discuss strategies on their feet as the kitchen duties constantly change. This multiplayer co-op game supports up to four players so you can get your family to join in on the fun too. With new interactive levels, themes and recipes, Overcooked 2 will put your teamwork to the test and guarantee lots of laughter and endless fun!
Available on: Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC via Steam
2. Among Us
We couldn’t leave out Among Us — one of the most popular games of 2020! This is one of the best couple online games to put your wits to the test and battle it out with your partner. In this game, you play a spacecraft crewmate who’s preparing your spaceship for departure. However, an imposter has snuck onto your ship and is out to kill your crew! Act fast and evict the imposter by getting all your crewmates to complete their tasks or to unite your votes and uncover the culprit.
Meanwhile, being the imposter is also equally fun in Among Us. The role is randomly assigned at the start of the game. As an imposter, you will have to cause chaos (think black outs and oxygen shortage) and find the perfect time to sneak in a kill. Be sure to convince or confuse your crewmates so they don’t vote you off the ship! You can play this not only with your partner but also with your friends as the game hosts up to 10 players online!

The game actively updates its storyline and introduces new characters so it never gets boring.

Are you able to cooperate and defuse the bomb in time? Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes’ premise is simple: one player gets trapped in a room with a time bomb while the other is handed a bomb defusal manual to rescue the trapped player.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? But, here’s the catch. The player with the bomb defusal manual is unable to see the bomb. Talk and discuss ways to solve the challenging puzzles. It’s the only way to diffuse the bomb! This best online game for couples allows both players to discover each other’s coping mechanism amid a chaotic situation.
Available on: App Store and Google Play Store on mobile, PC via Steam and consoles such as Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. For a more holistic experience, choose to play it in VR mode.
6. Mario Party Game Series
Bringing the joy of board games onto your screen, the Mario Party game series is one of the best online games for couples. The popular game series allows players to set off on the quest of stars collection and minigames with the ultimate goal to defeat Bowser, Mario’s biggest archenemy.
The exciting gameplay of each Mario Party is changed to suit the technology of the console over the years. We especially like Super Mario Party (available on RPG – Right Place For Gadgets) which has new innovative minigames that allow for online multiplayer mode for the first time in the series! You can play the minigames together with your partner even when you don’t live together. Released for Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Party also features one of the largest rosters of characters in-game. Played it countless times? Engage in other fun Nintendo Switch games too!

7. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
No list of best couple online games is complete without PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). Nothing is more romantic than being able to protect your lover (aww) in this fierce battle royale game where players fight to emerge victorious as the last man standing.
Requiring strategy and an adventurous spirit, this game can be played solo or as a group (maximum four players). Players are parachuted down onto the map where they can rummage for weapons, armour and vehicles. What makes the game extra challenging is the shrinking safe zone, which forces players into a more confined area for combat. Players who are unable to reach the safe zone in time will ‘die’ and be out of the game. In it’s latest update, cross-platform play is now available for players on Xbox One and PS4, which means that you can play this game with your partner even if you both don’t own the same console! Gain an edge over your enemies in PUBG Mobile when you use PUBG mobile gaming accessories such as the Ugreen PUBG Joystick Controller (available on Ugreen Official Store).
Available on: Xbox One, PS4 and on Apple App Store and Google Play Store as PUBG Mobile

Launched through Kickstarter, Exploding Kittens (available on Toy Station Official Store) is a hugely popular card game for couples.

10. Pie Face Showdown
If you and your partner have a bit of a competitive streak, this couple game is just for you!

Fastest hand wins in this game, where both players have to smash the buttons rapidly to direct the pie thrower away from their side. The slower contestant gets a pile of whipped cream thrown in their face. Load the pie thrower up with a pile of whipped cream to up the stakes and both of you will be screaming your way through the night!
Couples at home can get creative (and dirty) by switching up the items placed on the pie thrower. Instead of whipped cream, why not go for some leftover pasta sauce? Fair warning: just be prepared to clean up after all the fun!
11. Just Dance 2021
