Do you two play games (the sexy kind?) There are times in every couple's life when you simply need to have one or two adult games around to spice things up. I can think of one instance in particular: When you're trapped in a "romantic" B&B in the middle of nowhere, the TV reception is terrible, and it's raining. If that ever happens to you, I hope you've packed one of the following lovers' games for grown-up couples.

Even as adults, any games where you tumble down laughing together are good ones. Couples will see that the box for this classic game contains a spinner and a plastic mat marked with colored circles. Spin the dial and move a hand or foot to the colored circle on the floor mat. According to the official rules, a referee is supposed to spin the spinner. When just two play, adjust the rules so that the last person has to make the spinner reachable by his opponent. We're not sure what constitutes winning -- but does it really matter?
Fantasy and foreplay are encouraged in this adult game. Again, players pick "to-do" cards in Lust!, which challenges by suggesting romantic and sensual tasks. And the winners end up in bed.
Chocolate plus a game to play? Not since hydrogen and oxygen merged to form water have two more essential elements united. So put aside your anniversary edition of the "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" DVD and oompah-loompah this game, which is a delicious interpretation of Monopoly. Added bonus of playing Strip Chocolate-opoly at a B&B: Someone else washes the sheets. Who wins? He or she who devours the most chocolate, of course.
