Make Date Night an Adventure
Looking for an RPG specifically made for a couple to play together? We’ve got you covered. We created modules where both people can be players and enjoy the unfolding story, not where one knows all and spells out the story for the other. We call them Date Night Dungeons. The goal is for the players to not only have a fun adventure but also to spark romance. It’s perfect for date night, whether the players are just getting to know each other or have been together for years.
The Big Idea
Each partner both GMs and plays, and mysteries unfold for both as the story moves forward. We’ve divided the adventure into four scenarios. We encourage players to switch GM duties for each scenario and to not read past the current scenario to avoid spoilers. That way, both partners get to be players, and the mystery lasts until the final scenario. Our fleshed-out RPG module is v3.5 compatible and complete with locations, maps, backstories, character sheets, NPCs, and baddies.
Bring on the Romance
To facilitate the romance, we’ve also added a few extras, like Attraction Points, Turn-ons, and Pet Peeves. These keep your mind focused on the romance as our characters battle villains and solve mysteries. Players make romance roll throughout. It’s the dice, though, that decide if our characters fall for each other or can’t wait to get rid of each other. Then again, isn’t love always a roll of the dice?
The heir to the Blackthorn power and fortune is being held for ransom. Now it’s up to the head of security at the manor to get the heir back. But when they learn that the kidnappers mean to kill the Thane as well, they must work together to find out who is behind the plot and why. They soon learn that things are far more sinister than they first appeared. Now they must foil the mastermind’s evil plot before the planes of hell break loose – if they can. So light some candles, set the mood, and let the adventure begin.

This has been a fun, really cute idea, and a great activity for my husband and I on Sunday nights. I was so excited to play, and the experience was everything I could have hoped for. We are already eagerly anticipating another date night dungeon!

I got this for a date night surprise with my husband. It was a lot of fun and the attraction mechanics were really cute. I really like that the module had us switch up who was GM.
This was so fun! We purchased it from the Kickstarter and played the first scenario today! We had splurged and purchased the maps through Kickstarter, it made play so smooth!It is a great introductory game for new players as well as fun and enjoyable for experienced players! This was my second time as dungeon master and the book made it so simple! We will definitely be introducing our friends to D&D using this book!
