You don’t need apps to play games with your buddies—heck, you don’t even need to be together to have fun. Try these clean, flirty, fun texting games!
1. Would you rather
It’s usually played in a face-to-face set up, but you can do it over text instead. Would You Rather game may reveal the nature of your girlfriend/boyfriend. The rule here is to ask a question that starts with “would you rather…” Then, it’s followed by hypothetical scenarios.
Those scenarios can be interrelated or they can be as distant as you wish them to be. However, the two options should carry the same weight. Your questions must be creative. The best “would you rather” questions are those that depict uncomfortable yet equally terrible options. This is a great get to know you game because it can be funny and absurd at the same time. It can also be serious. It’s best to choose questions that require some thinking. It’s a fun game to create conversations because you can learn a lot about how you each think and also have debates about each option.
One great example is “would you rather lose your reproductive organs for life or gain 200 pounds forever?”
Or “would you rather live with no arms or without legs?”
2. In Character
Remember the characters you grew up watching and even emulating as teens or kids? Now is the time to bring those back into the picture by pretending to be like them—through text. Pick two celebrities or television or movie characters that you both know well, and pretend to be each of them.
Romy and Michelle, Paris and Nicole, Calvin and Hobbes, Dumb and Dumber… it’s your pick. Text each other saying things that these characters would say and in the unique ways that they would say it. The one who can go the longest without losing character wins the game.
3. Movie Lines
If you and your friends are into movies, then this texting game is going to be lots of fun. You can challenge one or more friends to carry on a conversation with you by using only famous movie lines. You can even choose a theme or category to make the game more interesting.
4. I Spy
Another classic game that you can take to a whole other level with text is “I Spy/Eye Spy.” What you can do is to let your friend know your location (just make sure they’re also familiar with the place), then pick something that you know is hard for them to guess. And then, your friend can also do the same on his or her turn. This game is also ideal if one of you is travelling to another place, making your connection go beyond the constraints of geography.
5. Never have I ever
This one usually involves a lot of players during a drinking session. However, this, too, can be played over text with just two people. It’s another great get to know you game. It reveals facts about your girlfriend or boyfriend.
The players will take turn in making statements about what they’ve never done before. Each time a statement is made that’s the opposite of his/her experiences, the opposite player loses one point.
Some rules should be applied on how someone will lose a point. The questions and answers of both players can reveal some deep-seated secrets about the players.
6. 20 Questions
A popular icebreaker, “20 Questions” can be crazier and more entertaining when done through text, especially on a painfully boring afternoon at work. Come up with a person, place, food, animal, or thing. Then, your friend will ask you a series of “yes” or ”no” questions. They should be able to guess the word within 20 questions to gain a point. Then, it’s your turn to guess their word, and this could go on until the one with the most points win.
This is great for writers. As they say, two heads are usually better than one. With this game, one player starts by texting the beginning word, sentence or a phrase to the other player. When the other player reciprocates with another word, sentence or phrase, another player reciprocates and so on and so forth.
The answers can build a narrative that’s built by the first player. Sometimes the story built can be terrific or horrendous. It can also be an epic or a real good story. The back and forth statements can eventually build a plot over text.
Don’t worry about the flow of the story. You shouldn’t expect it to be eloquent or seamless. But the twist of the story offers more depth that the two players are compelled to keep the story going.
You can start by texting your boyfriend/girlfriend something like “Once a upon a time.” The second player will answer with “in a land called nowhere.” Then, your text buddy would respond with another phrase or a word, and so on and so forth.
This isn’t a popular game, but it still offers fun and excitement. You can find various abbreviations anywhere, from company names to phrases that are shortened for ease of use. However, in this texting game, you’re going to abbreviate what you’re up to. For example, you can type in “I’m in a bathroom.” You can abbreviate it into IIAB. The other player will try to unabbreviate it so it’ll go back to its original form.
9. What If?
This is always a fun game that you may have even played on your own while in the shower or on the way to work. You can get your friends into the game, too, by taking turns texting each other “What if” scenarios and waiting for each other’s responses. The more unusual and ridiculous the scenarios, the more fun it will be. This is a great way for you and your friends to pick each other’s brains and get to know each other a little better.
10. What Would You Do?
This game is a fun way to develop your imagination and get to know how your friends would handle certain situations. Whether you just got to know each other or are already long-time friends, this is a great way to pass the time. Ask your friend what they would do given certain situations, such as winning a billion bucks, getting stranded on an island, finding out that he or she only has one day to live, and many other scenarios. You can even make up your own scenarios and just let your imagination roam. Ask your friends to do the same, and you might be surprised with their answers.
This is another fun game to play over text. You can choose a single word or a phrase to start with. The other player has to follow up with another word or phrase that rhymes with the first one. Players continue to go back and forth until one player cannot come up with a response that rhymes.
12. Reversed writings
This is absolutely an awesome texting game where all the words of the message should be written reverse. Also, the response should be given in the same way. This is a fun way to kill time or just make things more interesting. Sometimes, plain old texting gets boring, so spice up the things. You will sure have a laugh or two trying to figure out what the messages are saying.
13. Complete the Sentence
Another great texting game idea is when you encourage your friends to give you naughty or funny answers. You take turns texting each other incomplete sentences, and wait for what your friends will answer. For example, “If I were on a date with you, I would skip dessert so we could…” Let your friends finish the sentence for you. You’ll all be in for an amazingly interesting texting game!
14. Talk with Emojis
With so many emojis at your disposal, wouldn’t it be fun to just talk using exclusively emojis? From smileys to firecrackers and animals, you can make talking with your friends a little more challenging and fun with the help of emojis. Whoever can guess what you were saying wins a treat from you—and maybe just the idea of your texting them how your date went using cryptic emojis can be a juicy treat in itself.
15. Celebrity friendship
This is a fun game where both of you pretend to be celebrities that you like and know well. You should know how they behave and speak and what they would say in a particular situation. Text one another saying things that the real celebrity would say. The one who loses is the player who will lose the focus. Instead of a celebrity, you can also choose a movie character. Everything is optional.
