No matter which type of games you like to play from online multiplayer to competitive card games or classic board games. If you and your significant other enjoy playing games together online as a couple, there is a game for you. Paul and I are both gamers in fact we actually met in a game and have been together for over two years.

One of our favorite things to do when we have time is play games online together and we have played many different types of games, below you can find our top picks of online games for couples both paid and free. We have divided the games into sections so you can choose the type from casual games to massive online multiplayer games so you can choose the game that suits you.

Paul and I have both played most of the games on this list and many we still play today.

Casual Online Games for Couples

Facebook Gameroom Games (Free)

Facebook is one of the most popular free choices for couples multiplayer games and one that most people will already be familiar with. There are lots of games to choose from. challenge each other to a game of 8 ball pool or golf, compete on a bejeweled blitz or play scrabble/words with friends.

These games are quick and fun and great for a quick game during a lunchtime break, many can be played on mobile too through facebook messenger.

We have at times played Facebook games such as pool but we prefer a more in-depth type of game where we can complete objectives together.

Card Games Online for Couples

If you and your partner enjoy playing competitive card games then these two free to play games are a great choice where you can collect cards and battle one another using the decks you make.

Hearthstone (Free)


Hearthstone by Blizzard Entertainment is one of the most popular competitive care games online and can be played with friends or random opponents, you can play against each other or spectate each other’s games. It’s free to download and play, you choose from several hero’s to play and create decks from the cards you have collected. Can be played on pc or mobile.

We both still play this game regularly.

The Elder Scrolls Legends (Free)

The Elder Scrolls Legends from Bethesda is very similar to Hearthstone in gameplay and another game that you can play together. It’s available for free through Steam and as a mobile app. You need to register a free account on Bethesda and play through the tutorial before you can challenge or spectate your partner.

*Both Hearthstone and The Elder Scrolls Legends can be played for free or you can optionally buy extra card packs for your collection. You will often get free packs for completing daily tasks and unlocking higher levels.

Although we have both played Legends, Hearthstone remains our preferred card game to play together.

MMORPG for Couples

Online Multiplayer/ Massive Multiplayer Games

If you are looking for a more challenging, long term game that you can play with your other half there are a lot to choose from. The great thing about this type of game is that you can really interact with your partner, create an avatar and explore a virtual together, fight battle’s together, build a home/base together or fight for your survival. These type of games have a bit of everything, below are some of our top choices and why we like them.


Ark Survival Evolved (Paid) PC, PS4 and Xbox

If you both enjoy MMO survival games then Ark Survival Evolved is a great choice where you can tame dinosaurs together to keep as pets, build a fortress/house/castle or boat to live on (this is one of our favorite aspects of the game because you can completely design and paint your own base and build it together from stone, metal, wood or thatch).  You can farm crops, cook food, hunt dinosaurs, explore the world on the back of a T-Rex, fly through the sky on a pteranodon, venture into dark caves together and so on.

The only downside to Ark is that you need a good computer to run it on, it has high minimum requirements and the download size is quite large but if you are looking for a virtual world to live in together where you can survive together then Ark is a great choice.

Ark is available through Steam on PC as well as Playstation and Xbox

Entropia Universe (Free with in-game purchases) PC

This is a somewhat unique game that has been around for many years. It’s an ideal game for couples because as the name says, it’s a universe consisting of 7 different planets that you can travel to (in your own spaceship). The freedom to explore together is a huge plus for this game, each planet has unique environments, creatures, and places to discover. You can even travel to ancient Greece with your partner if you wish. Apart from exploring, you can buy and sell all items in the game, visit a hairstylist to get your hair done or browse the many shops on different planets for the perfect outfit.

If you want a little more action, you can take the starter missions or buy some armor and weapons and hunt the many creatures you find. If hunting isn’t your thing you can go mining or craft your own clothes/furniture and weapons, to keep or sell to others on auction.

Another aspect of this game is the ability to own apartments, houses and even shops where you can sell to other players. You can train animals as pets or become space pirates and hunt huge creatures or your fellow player spaceships.

The game has a very active player base with many regular official events and updates.

Although the game is completely free to download and explore, you will need in-game cash to play which can be bought with real money. You also have the option of withdrawing your money if you ever decide to stop playing. You could set up a business as a couple and make a real profit or simply play for fun. Entropia offers a real choice when it comes to what you want to do and how you want to play. Paul and I both played for many years and have many great memories from our time there.



Survival Games Couples Can Play Together

7 Days to Die (Paid)


If zombie survival is your thing and you’re looking for a game where you can build together, scavenge for supplies and fight off giant hoards of zombies then 7 days to die is a lot of fun. What we love about this game is that you really have the freedom to do what you want, if you want to dig a tunnel and make an underground base/home, you can, want to build a fortress on pillars to avoid zombies? you can do that too, you can interact with pretty much everything in the game, take over a building, extend it or demolish it for materials.

Every 7th day a zombie hoard will attack your base and test the defenses you have built, a great alternative for date night! You can also plant crops, cook, paint your home, craft furnishings, trade with other players and more.

The download is a lot smaller than ark and is available on steam for PC, Xbox and Playstation.

Other Online Couples Games
