Long Distance Houseparty Date

Looking for a fun date to have with your loved one who is far away?? Check out our Long Distance Houseparty Date that you will love!!

Before we start this post, we just wanted you to know that we are not being paid or making any commission by the Houseparty app or company with this post!!
All the ideas that will be shared in this post are our own!!

Recently, a friend shared with me about a super fun video chat app called Houseparty!!

Houseparty is an app that you download to your phone that allows you to video chat with your friends and play games at the same time!!

But wait, that’s not it!!

If your friend has some friends that you don’t know and want to know then hold on to your hat…

because you can even host a video chat game party with friends that are friends of friends!!

Researching more about the Houseparty app we learned that one chatroom can host up to eight people!!

Houseparty has a totally laid back come as you are when you can kind of vibe to it.

This app allows your friends to be notified when you pop up onto houseparty and provides that vibe of how kids in the 90s used to hang out.

Ring the doorbell and ask to play.

None of this plan for a playdate kind of thing.

Okay, now you are probably thinking wait a minute!!

Remember, this post is supposed to be for a long-distance Houseparty date night with my love.

How on earth is partying up with my love and his or her friends going to make a special night??

Well here is the catch!!

There is an option on Houseparty to lock the room you are in!!

So that the only people who can be in that room are you and your SO.

So now that you kind of know what the Houseparty app is… let’s talk about the games that you can play on it!!

On the day of writing this post, the games that you can find are Karaoke, Pick Me, Uno, Word Racers, Heads Up! (the game that Ellen started or featured on her show), Trivia, Chips and Guac, Quick Draw! and Magic 8 ball!

Want to know more about the games?? Well, we will explain them below!!

Karaoke proves to have some of the latest cool kid hits and definitely provides that classic karaoke vibe to it.

The lyrics will show up on the screen and the music will play.

And well all you need to do is sing along!!

Pick Me when we tried to figure out this game requires 3 people to play. In talking to friends about this game they said that a sentence or topic will show up. You pick which player that sentence most matches too!!

Easy but definitely a group game!!

Uno… well what can I say here?? If you haven’t played Uno before!! Yikes!!

Haha, okay just jokes but honestly!!

This is a card game that works off color and number.

Each player is dealt 7 cards and then a card is flipped up and placed on the table. You can either play the number or color. If you don’t have either you pick a card or use your wild cards to change the color!

This is a fun one to play and really see if your date or loved one has a competitive side or not.

Word racers is a lot like boggle. If you have someone who has a geeky or scrabble loving side to them then definitely check out this game!!

There are three rounds and a timer to see how many words you can get!! It’s a super fun game but really eliminates the amount of talking that is happening.

So if you want more communication and to be able to really interact with your date then you might want to choose a different game!!

However, one thing that we loved about using Houseparty is the fact that you don’t have to be playing a game.

There is the choice to close the game you are playing. And just chat.

Or stare into each other’s eyes. You know whatever floats your boat!!

Heads Up… if you have seen the show Ellen you will be familiar with this game. It is a lot like Headbandz with a spin. Your goal is to give your partner clues about their word without saying it under a time limit to see how many you can get before the timer buzzes!!
Trivia I went on a date before where the guy loved playing trivia and got me hooked to it!! This game has categories and asks a series of questions that relate to the topic. You are given 3 choices to choose from. But make sure you answer quickly or else you’ll run out of time!!

If you want to be pleasantly surprised about the knowledge you have of the world around you?? Then, check out Trivia you are bound to be in for a surprise!!

Chips and Guac– This is another group game. So we didn’t get to try it but it seems like a total blast. According to Good Housekeeping they describe Chips and Guac with the following:

This hilarious word association game makes for hours of non-stop laughs. To play, one person deals a descriptor card — these cards say something like “sneaky” or “can’t even” — and everyone else puts down a card that they think best matches that descriptor. (In that way, the game is super similar to Cards Against Humanity.) A judge chooses which match is funniest, and the person who put down that card wins that round.

Thanks Good Housekeeping for having our Houseparty Group Game backs!!
Draw It– Love Pictionary?? This is the game for you!! We loved playing this game. Because well it is funny to see your drawing skills on a phone!! And the answers that you try to come up with under a time constraint!!
Magic 8 Ball– Remember that eight ball that you could shake and it would give you an answer to the question you asked?? Legit this is what the magic 8 ball is. You get to shake your phone for the ball to work.
Will mr. hottie pants be my boyfriend??

Without a doubt!!

Intrigued about this Long Distance Houseparty Date aren’t you??

Well we definitely were too!!

To start off this date, I immediately thought of the song Houseparty by Sam Hunt.

If you haven’t heard it the House Party lyrics go:

You’re on the couch, blowin’ up my phone
You don’t wanna come out, but you don’t wanna be alone
It don’t take but two to have a little soiree
If you’re in the mood, sit tight right where you are, babe

‘ Cause I’ll be at your door in ten minutes
Whatever you got on, girl, stay in it
You ain’t gotta leave the house to have a good time
I’ma bring the good time home to you

We’ll have a house party, we don’t need nobody
Turn your TV off, break that boombox out
We’ll wake up all the neighbors ’til the whole block hates us
And the cops show up and try to shut us down if you’re gonna be a homebody
We’re gonna have a house party
If you wanna be a homebody
We’re gonna have a house party

Throw a neon t-shirt over the lamp shade
I’ll take the furniture, slide it out of the way
Shakin’ the floor, rattlin’ the roof
We’ll go to town like they’re in your livin’ roomLet’s have a house party, we don’t need nobody
Turn your TV off, break that boombox out
We’ll wake up all the neighbors ’til the whole block hates us
And the cops show up and try to shut us down if you’re gonna be a homebody
We’re gonna have a house party
If you wanna be a homebody
We’re gonna have a house party So I’ll be at your door in ten minutes
Whatever you got on, baby, stay in it
You ain’t gotta leave the house to have a good time
I’ma bring the good time home to you We’ll have a house party, we don’t need nobody
Turn your TV off, break that boombox out
We’ll wake up all the neighbors ’til the whole block hates us
And the cops show up and try to shut us down If you’re gonna be a homebody
We’re gonna have a house party
If you wanna be a homebody
We’re gonna have a house party

This song is the inspiration to our invite.

” If you’re gonna be. a homebody, then we’re gonna have a house party!!

After making the Houseparty invite, I sent an email to JD with Sam Hunt’s houseparty song!!

And!!
