So when I decided to choose my next review item, I chose something I hadn’t tried reviewing before: a board game. I am thrilled that My Pleasure sex toys was willing to give me the opportunity to review one. This game is called “All Night Love Affair”, it’s a simple looking game that is made up of only one die and 96 game cards. The directions are simple, you first make sure all of the cards are divided into the 3 categories. The cards aren’t designed extremely fancy. Each card is purple with a graphic on top to show which category it belongs to. The pictures for each category consist of: a pink heart that says “kiss me” on it, a pink pair of panties, and a black and white graphic that says “All Night Love Affair”. On the backside, the cars is completely white with black text to tell you what to do for that category.
To play the game, the players take turns rolling the die. Each side of the die matches the picture on the cards and there is also a side with a question mark on it. The player who just rolled the die, will then pick up a card that corresponds to the picture on the dice. The player must then follow the directions given to them on the card. Once they complete the directions given, the player will then put the card at the bottom of that pile. If you land on the question mark, you get to choose a card from any of the categories. The only catch is that if the die lands on “All Night Love Affair” within the first 5 rolls, you can not take that card and you will have to roll again. The same rule applies to the question mark, you can not choose “All Night Love Affair” if you are within the first 5 rolls. The first player that rolls “All Night Love Affair” first after the first 5 rolls, is the winner of the game and gets to draw a card from that pile. The instructions to the game are printed on one side of the box and they are straightforward and easy to understand.
This game could easily work for most couples, from beginners to couples who are looking to spice up things. My partner and I have been together for 3 years and have tried anything from vanilla to BDSM. If you usually experiment on a regular basis, then you may find the more basic cards boring. If you are hoping for some bondage, there aren’t many cards that use it – so it may not be right for the bondage lover. My partner and I both work and go to college, so this is perfect for us because we don’t often have time to spend on certain sex aspects and because the game can be short or last as long as you would like it to. Depending on what type of couple you are, you can easily take out the cards that may consist of things you may not be comfortable doing. You can easily take the game with you wherever you would like in the house. The box isn’t very big, so you could pack it to take with you on a trip even. It does have setting specific cards, but you can always take them out or ignore them if you can’t use them.
I feel that the design of the game is effective, aesthetically it’s nothing fancy to look at b ut the set up is effective. The directions are straight forward and simple, but you can easily alter them if needed. It seems like it is set up for 2 players, but I am sure you can alter it for more if you would like to. The game has no set length or time limit so you can make it as long or as short as you would like depending on how long you choose to spend on each card. As I mentioned earlier, you can easily go through the cards and take out any cards that you or your partner may not be comfortable doing, if needed. The “panty” card category seems to consist of cards that involve using your hands, mouth, or body. Such as “Massage Your Lover’s Neck”, “Have your lover lie on their stomach and stimulate them from behind with your hands”, “Blindfold and tease your lover”, “stimulate yourself while your lover watches”, “grind your naked bodies without penetration”, and “tickle your lover”. There was only one card in this category that I was uncomfortable with and that is “trim or shave your lover’s privates” and that is only because I am not into letting my partner trim or shave me at all. The “Kiss Me” category involves mostly directions where you have to use your mouth. Such as “French kiss your lover”, “Tell your lover an erotic fantasy – be as descriptive as possible (talk dirty)”, “Have your lover lie down. Tie your lover’s hands over their head and perform oral on them.”, “Lick your lover from head to toe”, and “Model lingerie or perform a strip-tease”. The “All Night Love Affair” category is all about sex, which is why you have to wait to get to this category for a few rolls before you can draw a card. It includes cards like: “Make Love on the kitchen counter or table”, “Make love on the floor or living room sofa”, “tie your lover up, blindfold them if you wish, and make love to them.”, “She/He has to be your sex slave for the evening.”, and “watch a scene from an erotic movie and act it out with your lover.”
My partner and I actually had lots of fun with the game. It worked as a great bonding experience and it was nice because it helped us to set time aside to spoil each other in a way. When we played it, we followed the directions exactly, and when we pulled a card – we didn’t show it to each other. We just read the directions and acted it out on one another. Which made for a great surprise because we didn’t know what each other were going to do. When we pulled a card, we didn’t time each other or anything, we just did it until we were ready to stop and move on to the next card. It was also great to see my partner get into it and really enjoy it too. He even asks that we set aside time to play it from time to time.
All in all, I really enjoyed this game – I feel that it was a great first game to start out with when trying out sex games. It was fun, simple, and easy to use. If you are ready for your own All Night Love Affair, then go to My Pleasure to purchase the game for yourself. While you are there – be sure to check out all of their other toys to play with as well.
