To start with Battleship, two players draw an equal number of stars or circles (or any other shape) in their respective homebase.

Push the Button is the next option that we can recommend. You can also enjoy this one with a small group of family, coworkers, or friends when things are dull and want to spice things up.

Take a piece of blank paper and write down the names of a certain number of males and females in your group.

This number should be the same for both sexes. On the other side, write down as many actions as you can think of, like kiss, hug, shake hands, etc.

If you’re thinking of old-school paper-and-pencil games, this might be one of the first ones that comes to mind.

The key idea is to determine whether you and your love interest can become Friends, Lovers, Affectionate, Married, or Enemies.

And like many games like MASH, the main idea behind Flame is something fun with your spare time pals.

To start the game, you must write down your name and the name of your love interest on a piece of paper and then cross out all the normal letters that appear in your names.

Tic-Tac-Toe is the third choice on the right. A lot of people might also know this 1 as 9s and 0s. Have a blank sheet of paper and draw a 3×3 grid to play; it’s pretty simple.

Then, depending on which letter you choose, you and your friend can take turns making a “X” and a “O” in the grid.

3. SOS

Another game for two people, SOS is like XOX or Tic-Tac-Toe but with a bigger playing field and no assigned letters.

For every turn, you can write either an S or an O and you get a point whenever you get a full SOS sequence—diagonally, horizontally, or vertically.

The player who completes an SOS immediately takes another turn, and keeps taking turns until he or she can no longer complete an SOS. The person with the most number of SOS completed wins.
