One of my birthday gifts to my wife this year was a themed date day without the baby. Her choices of theme were "Mystery," "Love," "International" and "Silly." Silly was kind of the after-thought to round out the list to 4 choices, so of course that's what she picked. Part of the day will be spent playing games, and I don't have very many that I would call "silly." What silly games would work well for 2 adults? Bonus points if there's some strategy to it.

Thanks for your help!

I admittedly don't have any great answers, but since nobody else is chiming in.. here goes.

Guillotine
Loopin' Louie
Elk Fest
Escape: The Curse of the Temple (but only with the curses)
JAB: Realtime Boxing - closest thing to a 2 player party game available

My wife favors silly games if she's going to play. The only two I can think of that she likes and work 2p are Gloom and Fluxx.

Dungeon Fighter is a pretty silly dexterity coop game that has you do some ridiculous things in order to slay them monsters. It plays well with 2 and could make for an interesting evening.

+1 for Guillotine

Gloom is a good one, but you have to know your wife is willing to get creative and tell stories in order to make the game humorous.

Unexploded Cow is my go to silly game for my wife and I. We have another couple we play it with from time to time, and it works a bit better with more people since the end of the game is more interesting. I really enjoy it at two still though.

Animal Upon Animal. Dungeon Petz would work if you're looking for a deeper game for 2.

Tarantel Tango: play cards, making appropriate animal noises as you play them, while the rules slowly get more and more complicated, ending up rather difficult in the end.

Last Will - race to spend all your money. This definitely has strategy, and should be available with the recent reprint.
Shear Panic - 'In Shear Panic, ewe maneuver your ewes to score points, playing tag, standing close to Roger, or trying to avoid the shearing scissors! Will your brave sheep score the most points, or will it be "Off with the wool" for ewe?'
Win, Lose, or Banana - this is barely a game and is very short, but is definitely silly, and very inexpensive.

Thanks for the help everyone! Based on our tastes and price, I went with Guillotine, although I've got my eye on Dungeon Fighter as well. Looking forward to playing it tomorrow!

Dungeon Fighter's Sword of Friendship is super cute.

You have to throw the die by holding another player's hand.
