A board game that induces pleasure, lust, and closeness with your partner — Monogamy is certainly a hot and heated affair. No matter your age (or the age of your relationship), Monogamy offers a pleasurable, intimate, and arousing evening that always ends with some naked fun.
Monogamy is specifically designed to spice up the things in your sexual life. It widens your curiosity, pushes your sexual boundaries, and gets you to intimately desire your partner. So, pour some wine, and let’s dive in!
Brief Overview of Monogamy: A Hot Affair
In order to unlock sexual pleasures for committed couples, Monogamy challenges you to do things to your partner. The game starts with talking and laughing at the intimate pink level. It then moves to the passionate purple level that brings on sensuous and exciting actions.
The third is the fiery red level that climaxes your feelings of longing for your partner. And finally, comes the action with the fantasy cards that turn longing into reality.
The game is designed to last even beyond the board. It may ask you to take your partner to dinner or prepare for a night of romance that actually spices up your normal life and sparks sexual pleasure.
Unboxing Monogamy: A Hot Affair
When you open up the box, you’ll find the board, four sets of cards that determine your actions, the pieces that you play after your turn, dice, and the instruction sheet.
The components are of good quality that can last a lifetime if properly cared for. The components are easy to handle and easy to store. Also, the instruction manual is detailed and explains everything clearly.
How to Play Monogamy: A Hot Affair
Pro Tip: Whoever decided to try the game should probably have a grasp of the rules before inviting your partner to get started. That way, you won’t have to stop and read the rules when you’re ready to go. (wink, wink)
How does the play start?
Start by lovingly gazing into each other’s eyes… and try not to blink! Whoever blinks first, plays second.
Start at Go:
Both the players place their pieces at the Go square on the board. The one who wins the blinking test starts the game by rolling the dice, moving your piece around the board.
The squares are marked with actions. Each time you land in a square, you fulfill the required action. When you land in a Monogamy square, you draw a card of that level and do the dare.
The game offers three levels.
- Intimate Pink Level
- Passionate Purple Level
- Steamy Red Level
You have to complete each level by completing the circle on the board twice. In order to keep track of the level, you put a ring on your piece. The first one is pink. After you complete the first circle on the board, you put another pink ring on your piece. You later put two purples and two reds after completing the levels.
Each level is provided with a set of cards that you draw from the pack whenever you land on the Monogamy square.
For the first level, draw a pink card. For the second level, draw a purple card and for the third, draw a red card.
Each card has commands based on gender. He/she reads the command and then performs it.
The Fantasy Cards:
There is a pack of fantasy cards that you pick up each time you cross Go square. But you can hold only two fantasy cards at a time. So, after the third pass, you put the previous card back and take a new one.
The player who completes all the levels first wins the game. They then get to choose which fantasy card to keep. The end of the game turns the fantasy of the winner into reality.
You can tweak the rules in your favor as per your liking. For example, if you want to stay at each level once and not twice, that’s fine. It’s totally up to you. Also, you can prolong the pleasures by making the game longer, as per your desire.
Pros & Cons
● The best thing about the game is that it is designed to bring a couple together. It makes no mention of the previous love affairs a person might have had.
● The game is cleverly designed to last beyond the board. For example, many of the tasks include daily life romantic gestures such as arranging a candlelight dinner or preparing the room and props for the night.
The advantages are a great plus. The game can spice up an old relationship as well as help a new relationship to build understanding and love by getting to know each other better.
● Some of the tasks might be awkward for couples to perform. They might have already decided between them not to push beyond the agreed limits.
● The use of food items as sexual props may be a turn-off for some people. Using cucumbers as a sexual prop might disgust some people.
● Role-playing can be a difficult thing for some people to try for the first time.
Some couples might not want to go to certain lengths for exploring pleasures. It might be a turn-off for them. They might have already agreed to their boundaries. However, feel free to skip around and carry on with the rest of it. (It’s never bad to challenge yourself, though!)
Monogamy is a great board game that genuinely serves the purpose of bringing two people together. True to its name, it is a hot affair that gets under your skin and arouses longing, lust, and desire.
For a new couple, it offers an activity that would bring the two closer. The levels help the couple explore each other in a fun way while keeping the moments intimate and intense at the same time.
For those already in a relationship, the game is a great start to rekindle the fire. A middle-aged relationship needs a fresh kick like this one. It has the potential to bring fire to the embers of an old love too!
