Date Night at Home

D

Date night is all about the two of you, interacting with each other over things other than your bills, your kids, your home, or your work. If you can’t leave your sleeping kids or don’t feel like dealing with bad weather, there is a new game you might enjoy at home. We learned about it from friends who have literally worn the paint off three sets of tiles already, playing together and with visiting friends.
The game is called Qwirkle, and it comes from a husband and wife team who call their company Idea Duck. Qwirkle won the Mensa Select designation in 2007, and our friends learned about it from someone who voted for it over the many other games in that competition.
After playing several games with them, we purchased Qwirkle for ourselves. My husband is not a fan of Scrabble, Perquacky, Yahtzee, or card games, but he really enjoys this one, and so do I. It’s available at Barnes & Noble, Target, and several online stores.
Doing new things together is very healthy for your marriage, and you will both pick this one up a whole lot faster than the West Coast Swing or bridge. It doesn’t look likely to get boring for a long time.
