Four Alternative Date Ideas For Couples

Nothing beats a bit of healthy competition when it comes to couples. Whether it be sat in front of television watching a quiz show, or out with friends wanting to get one up on each other.

And when it comes to dates, there’s also plenty of room for getting into the competitive spirit and adding a bit of excitement to the mix. But what are the best date nights that add a bit of competition?

Casino Night

A casino night has long been a fantastic date. It offers the opportunity to get dressed up and feel that little bit like James Bond. However, you can add a competitive element to it too rather than playing together, and that all comes down to who wins the most, or loses the least.

Of course, you have to have an understanding of how video slots work, as well as the many table games you’ll find at casinos, but if you both already do then it’s perfect competition.

You should both start with the same bankroll, and set a few rules and a time period for when the winner is decided, but it’s a great date.

Ten-Pin Bowling

It’s a date as old as time, but you can’t beat the classics and a night skittling pins is always a fun one. It always works better if your skills are relatively evenly matched. After all, there’s nothing worse than a one-sided ten-pin bowling game.

You can play the best of three games, or have a set number of games and combine the total scores at the end to determine a winner.

Crazy Golf

Crazy golf has really taken off in the last few years and there are some wild courses dotted around many towns and cities, providing the perfect date night.

Golf skills often go out of the window in this game, with the obstacles making it more luck than judgement, meaning it’s anyone’s game for the win throughout.


For something less active but just as tense, bingo is a great night for getting competitive. There are dozens of bingo halls around, while playing online is easier than ever. You can have separate bingo cards to your partner and battle it out to try and fill your cards first.

The great thing about bingo is that it is purely random too, so you’ll both have exactly the same chance of winning. But who will come out on top?
