The official game of Channel 4’s cult show, First Dates.

What’s it like?

It’s a bit like Mr & Mrs with attitude. You and your pretend date get asked seriously awkward questions and the other couples get to guess the outcome. Perfect for students, dinner parties and trips down the pub. The game is only loosely based on the TV show, so you can still enjoy the game without knowing too much about it.

How to play:

Players split into couples – they are on a fictional date in a restaurant. Turn by turn, each couple gets asked different questions from the ‘Starters’ deck.

Example: “Who has the better fashion sense?” The couples must decide on their answers without conferring. If they agree with each other and both write down the same name, they win 2 points. If they disagree and write different names, they win 0 points.
Meanwhile, the other couples get to bet on whether the active team will agree or disagree. If they predict correctly, they gain 1 point. If incorrect, they get 0.

Once every couples has answered a ‘Starter’ card, they move onto the even more awkward questions in the ‘Main Course’ deck, before finishing on the painfully-awkward questions in the ‘Dessert’ deck.

The winning couple is the one with the most points at the end of dinner.
