It’s DATENIGHT! The podcast where a wife and her husband talk about the games they play on date nights. We focus on games that are great for 2 players. Each episode is short and sweet, just the way you like it, right honey?

In Episode 6, we talk about 3 games you can play when you’ve got a Third Wheel for Datenight. That means we’re talking about games best played with 3 players.
