See full summary » The classic game show with a twist; the answers are revealed, but it's up to the contestants to supply the questions.

Three contestants, including a returning champion, competed. See full summary » This is The 1st Edition of the program.

The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.

Jess and I blog about all things DIY, home decor, and toss plenty of real life in there too.

Today I’m sharing a project that couldn’t get any more REAL for ya…

First Run December 20, 1965 – July 6, 1973 (ABC Daytime) October 6, 1966 – January 17, 1970 (ABC primetime) September 10, 1973 – September 1974 (Syndication) Second Run September 4, 1978 – September 1980 (Syndication) Third Run September 15, 1986 – September 8, 1989 (Syndication) Fourth Run September 9, 1996 – September 1999 (Syndication) The Dating Game is an ABC television show.

It first aired on December 20, 1965 and was the first of many shows created and packaged by Chuck Barris from the 1960s through the 1980s.

While you and your partner live or die together, one of you will be declared the Master Slayer, so for those of you with a competitive streak, this may be a good balance. It’ll help you gauge your date’s problem-solving skills and give you a chance to show off that big brain of yours.

The first revival premiered in 1978 and ran until 1980, the second ran from 1986 until 1989, and the last ran from 1996 until 1999 with a season of reruns following.

Jim Lange hosted The Dating Game for its entire ABC network run and the 19 syndicated editions.

Chuck Woolery took over in 1997 when the original format was reinstated and hosted for the last two seasons.

Beginning in 1966, The Dating Game was often paired with The Newlywed Game.

While browsing Pinterest this past January, I found this idea and knew it was perfect for Valentine’s Day!

AND I KNEW I had to have them share it with all of you.

This geeky twist on a classic strategy game gives you a choice between simply following your own best interests or actively hindering your opponent. Include some longer and shorter games in case the date is going really well (or really poorly).

You can build space stations, travel the universe, and maybe learn a bit more about your date’s competitive streak. This is a more complicated game that can be made even more so with a variety of expansion packs.

The first few dates with someone new can be a bit nerve-wracking, so I suggest adding a bit of fun into the mix.

Board games can be an incredible way to quickly get to know someone and it can take some of the typical first date pressure off.
