Fun texting games are a great alternative if you have gotten bored of the typical texting conversation patterns. I mean, we live in the 21st century, right? So, it would be a sin not to use the charms of modern technology to our advantage, don’t you agree with me? (I know you do.)
So, if you and your partner are in a long distance relationship or you just want to spice up the usual texting pattern, fun texting games are just the right thing for you! Apart from laughing your ass off, with each game you will also learn something new.
The games are a great time-killer and inexhaustible source of a good laugh which will also help you to get to know each other better, to reveal secrets, to confide your deepest fantasies etc. You will have fun and create a stronger bond with your partner at the same time. Isn’t that just awesome!?
So next time you pick up your phone to text your girlfriend/boyfriend, pick some of the following fun texting games instead! (I’m sure they will be surprised and amused with your choice).
1. Never Have I Ever
You’re probably already familiar with this one because it’s one of the most popular games to play while drinking. However, it is also a great game to play over texting, too! You will have more time to think of the perfect tricky or dirty statements to send your partner and find out something new about them.
How to play: The game is pretty basic. You text your partner with a “Never have I ever” scenario and if they has, they lose a point. To spice it up, you can try to explain in details your stories behind the experience.
2. I Spy
“I spy” might sound as a childish game, but it can be just as interesting to play over texting as when you were children. You can actually turn it into a hot game by telling your partner the colors of your panties and similar. Just be creative!
How to play: First, set the rules from where you’re allowed to spy. Is it only your room, your whole house or are you allowed to use the Internet as well? Once you set the rules, look across your room (or wherever you are), spot something and tell your partner: “I spy…” followed by a short description of your target. Set a time limit or number of questions for each round.
3. 20 Questions
Similar to the previous one, the“20 Questions” fun texting game is also about guessing, but the difference is that in this game, you don’t provide clues for your partner. Apart from being really fun to play, the game is perfect for boosting your creativity and thinking outside the box .
How to play: You have “an answerer” and “a guesser”. The answerer chooses a subject/object, while a guesser (as you might guess) poses 20 questions in order to find out what it is. If your partner is an answerer, when you pose him a question, they can reply with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. If the answer is ‘Yes’, you switch the roles.
4. Personal Trivia
This one’s great for new couples who are still in the process of getting to know each other better. Asking personal questions out of the blue might seem a little bit uncomfortable, but with “Personal Trivia” it is a whole different thing
How to play: You pose a question to your partner, and when they give you an answer, you switch roles. To make it more interesting, don’t ask questions that are mostly asked during a job interview. Try to make it more personal because that’s the point of the game after all.
5. Text Strip Poker
This is an interesting one! It is great for couples who are together for some time because the game is about everything you’ve experienced so far and it can get pretty steamy. The more dates you’ve had, the more fun you’ll have playing the game!
How to play: You start the game by telling how many pieces of clothing you have on yourself and then you start posing questions that are related to your relationship and the time spent together. If you’re the one asking a question, and your partner answers it correctly, you switch roles. But, if your partner answers it incorrectly, they have to take off a piece of clothing and send you a picture as proof.
6. Kiss, Marry, Kill
“Kiss, Marry, Kill” is always a source of a good laugh followed by tears. The more creative you are, the more fun you’ll have with this one. The game is about which celebs would you rather kiss, marry or kill.
How to play: Choose three celebs and send it them your partner asking him or her which one would they choose to kiss, marry or kill. When your partner answers, then it’s their turn to ask you a question.
7. Reversed Writing
This one might sound confusing at first, but if you try playing it, you’ll see it’s totally worth it. If you’re looking for something new or want to refresh your current texting communication, you should definitely try reversed writing. As the name says itself, it is about writing sentences in reverse.
How to play: There are no specific rules when it comes to this one. You send a sentence in reverse to your partner, and wait for them to reply also in reverse style. It will be hard to get used to this writing style at first, but as you progress, you’ll see that it’s not that hard as it seems and the fun is guaranteed!
8. Story Builder
While playing “Story Builder”, the only thing to focus on is being creative and open-minded. It is a game where you add sentences to build a story in the end. The story will probably be confusing which will be hilarious or you can play dirty and make a hot story instead.
How to play: You send a sentence to your partner with which you would want to start the story. Your partner replies with their own sentence, and you continue building a story until you reach 20 sentences. Remember that you’ll only be allowed to send one sentence per turn.
9. Truth Or Dare
While this amusing game is mostly played in person, you can also switch it to a texting game. Truth or dare is an everlasting, entertaining game that will tell you a lot about your partner or it will force them to do things they never thought of doing.
How to play: The rules are simple. You ask your partner to choose between truth and dare. If they choose truth, you ask them a question. If they choose dare, you order them do something and take a picture as proof.
If you’re in the mood for a game that will boost your brain and rhyming skills, you should definitely try this one. It is a playful game where you make rhymes while having a regular conversation.
How to play: You send one sentence to your partner. Then they have to reply with the one that rhymes with yours and so on. You continue playing it until you feel your brain is going to explode or you can stop when you reach a certain amount of sentences.
11. Where Am I?
“Where Am I” is similar to “I Spy”. The only difference is that in this one, you’re not focused on one subject/object, but on the place where you are at the moment or a fictional place that you’ve imagined in your head.
How to play: Give your partner clues about the place you want him to guess. If you’re in a library, you can say that you’re surrounded by lots of books. The limit is 5 guesses. If your partner fails at it, you give them a correct answer and then it’s your turn to start guessing.
12. Song Emoji
If you’re a music lover, this is a perfect fun texting game for you. It is played like Song Lyrics, but with the help of Emojis instead.
How to play: Send the lyrics of one song using Emojis to your partner, and they have to guess the song. Limit the time to 1-2 minutes, and if they fail to recognize a song, you tell them the name and you switch roles. You can also add some letters in order to make it easier for them to guess.
13. Confession Time
Confession games are always inviting, and this one is perfect for you if you want to know your partner better and learn more about their past. But, you need to be honest with each other even if it is something you wouldn’t admit that easily.
How to play: Confess something that you’re guilty of or something funny from your past to your partner. When you do it, it’s their turn to do the same. If you don’t have anything to confess, your partner asks you a question and you answer it.
This texting game can be a little bit tough, but it will make you laugh really hard. You should definitely try playing it.

How to play: You ask your partner a question in which they have to choose between two things. You wait for them to answer then switch roles.n. You can also ask them why.
16. Fill In The Blanks
Is there anything more cute and romantic than finishing each other’s sentences? I bet there isn’t. “Fill in the blanks” is a game in which you send each other incomplete sentences and fill in the gaps. The results can be really hilarious and with tricky statements, you can also find out their hidden wishes.
How to play: You send an incomplete sentence to your partner and then wait for him/her to fill in the gaps. Then they send you their sentences. You change roles and repeat.
17. Riddle Me This
Riddles will always be one of the most entertaining games out there. They make you think fast, and they make you laugh hard at the same time. If you want to have a great texting time with your partner, you should definitely try this one. Whoever of the two of you gets the most right answers, wins!

Different from the rest of the fun texting games, “Lightning Fast” is an association game in which you test your partner’s subconscious by giving them one word and waiting for them to tell you what came first to their mind when they read it.
How to play: You simply send one word and wait for them to respond with their association on the particular word and vice versa. If it is something interesting, don’t forget to ask each other more about it.
20 .Sing It To Me
Similar to “Song Emoji”, this game is also perfect for couples who are music lovers. From all fun texting games, this one is my personal favorite. The game is about using lyrics of the songs as regular sentences.
How to play: Choose one artist, band or genre. send one or two sentence lyrics only from the category you’ve chosen. Send them to your partner and wait for them to reply.
