2. Virtual board games
If you’re looking for more fun online games, I recommend the Board Game Arena website which is full of great board games and available in more than 30 languages!

Otherwise, if you are looking for more classic board games that you cannot find online, nothing prevents you from playing together via webcam, if one of you already has it at home!
Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, chess… Many games are playable on Skype despite the distance.
Just open the boxes and pretend that you’re playing next to each other!
3. PC and console video games
More expensive, but also much more ambitious, these games often emphasize their coherent universe to create a sense of incomparable immersion for players.
That’s perfect for long distance relationship couples!
You can play in competition or in cooperation, in many different types of games: first-person shooters, strategy games, puzzles, MMOs, RPGs, etc.
Deeper than flash or mobile games, you will really feel like you’re in this adventure together.
Even if you are only casual gamers, it may be worth trying out more advanced games to share stronger experiences.
I bet you will find something that suits you!
You can find popular online multiplayer games on:
- Humble Bundle
- PlayStation, Xbox Live, Nintendo stores
Here a short list of games you should consider:
- MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft
- PUBG and Fortnite

- Trackmania Turbo, Rocket League, Mario Kart
- FPS: Portal 2, Left for Dead 2, COD, Battlefield, Halo

4. Conversation games
It would be misleading to say that you absolutely need a console or a smartphone to play together and have fun.
In the end, a game is only a set of rules between different players, so as long as you can communicate together, an infinite number of games are available to you!
Conversation games examples:
- 2 truths and 1 lie: in turn, one of you shares two truths and one lie about his/her life or his/her day and the other must discover the lie
- “Would you prefer X or Y? “
- Mimes: Guess what your partner is mimicking
- Ask closed questions in turn and the first one who answers “yes” or “no” looses
- 21 questions: one must guess what the other thinks in 21 questions
BONUS: Naughty Games for LDR Couples?!
As an alternative, you can even change any game rules to turn them into either an alcohol game or a naughty game…
No matter which game you pick, the goal here is not to win or even play.
The goal is to spend pleasant and quality moments together, outside the traditional conversations. So, have fun!
