The following list of long distance relationship activities from my e Book Long Distance Love: A Survival Guide for Long Distance Relationships includes a wide variety of activities for any situation, whether you have access to Skype and a webcam, a cell phone, or even just snail mail.For more activities (a full list of 60 fun things to try), a list of conversation questions, and long distance relationship ideas and advice, read my e Book, available the weekend of October 11, 2014. Have a duct tape contest Making things out of duct tape was a bit of a fad at one point.One person chooses a person, character, or object and the other tries to guess who or what it is by asking yes or no questions until he arrives at the answer. One of you must choose a movie (or book or song or anything you like) and act out its title silently so that the other player can correctly guess what you’ve chosen.Technically the guesser is only allowed to ask 21 questions, but my boyfriend and I throw that rule out the window and just play for fun. Charades is always a good back-up game if you are bored and have nothing planned, since it requires next to no set-up or preparation. Play Battleship & grid games Battleship wins major long-distance points for being one of the few games you can play together with the physical game.
My boyfriend got points for being much faster, but I won anyway since his crane looked like a pile of mush. Play 21 questions This is a go-to of mine since it is easy and can be played anytime, anywhere.
Do an image search online for some abstract geometric shapes and patterns.
(Or search for tangrams shapes.) Something that could work well is an image of two slanted rectangles intersected by an arrow shape, all inside of a circle.
Some such games, like Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, are book-based (though expensive), and guide you through a fictional world, allowing you to direct the story based on your decisions.
Other games, like the popular card game Once Upon A Time, require you to come up with the story, but gives you boundaries and inspiration in the form of keywords based around a theme.
