Monopoly takes hours to play, and Trivial Pursuit always ends in arguments. If you want to enjoy a special evening in with your significant other, try putting away those tired board games and indulging in a little Nookii.
The game also focuses on foreplay, an art that is often lost as couples settle into a routine. As the timer ticked away, I realized I couldn’t remember spending so long simply kissing. Rather than rushing to the finish line, Nookii forces couples to revel in the journey.
The variety of the cards in the game also means that you'll come across tasks that don't hit your sweet spot. I felt strange, not sexy, kneeling over my horizontal husband and kissing his upside-down face. And as the time ticked away, I sometimes found myself focusing on achy muscles held in uncomfortable positions rather than my partner. The diverse experiences that Nookii encourages are admirable, but it means some games will be hotter than others.
It’s also important to note that Nookii leaves little room for same-sex partnerships. Cards that refer to running hands over your partner’s breasts, lifting up her skirt and fondling his penis are very gender-specific. Gay and lesbian couples may be able to improvise on the instructions if they’re so inclined, but it’s a little disappointing that they have to.
I give it four hearts out of five. If you want to buy Nookii and try it for yourself, it's available on Amazon.com.
