The Spooky Dating Drinking Game To Get Boo-zed Up With Your Pumpkin This Halloween

Halloween 2020 is going to be pretty different, but that doesn't mean the ghost stories have to social distance themselves. In fact, after a year like this one, what's a few more horror stories to add to the mix? If you and your partner dare, this boo-zy drinking game will definitely add a little spook into your All Hallows' Eve plans. Think you're brave enough to share your scariest dating stories with your pumpkin this October 31? You've come to the right spot.

This is the Ultimate Spooky Dating Drinking Game. Here's how it works:

The Rules Are Simple

Each person has to answer each question truthfully and if they've done what is in each number, they drink based on instructions. Oh, and...

  • Drink responsibly
  • Must be 21+ to play this game
  • Mix in some water, please and thank you

Get it? Got it? (In case you don't get it, go in order from 1 to 23 as each player answers each question and drinks if they've done the mentioned deed). Good.

Let's PLAY!

*Note: decide before the game whether you want to play the bonus round as well — which involves sharing more about these spooky dating stories. If you choose to opt in for the bonus, each player will either tell the story for that round to make their "opponent" (really their partner) drink or take the sip themselves. Things are about to get boo-zy (disclaimer).

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
