Valentine's Games for 2!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to spice up the night like you never have before. Sure, chocolates, roses, and jewelry are standard affair, but what about heating up with the night with fired synapses and friendly competition? Make long lasting V-Day memories with head-to-head games made especially for two. And is there anything more intimate than sharing brain waves?



As easy as it is to get lost in your lover’s gaze, why not try getting lost in their maze? In Quoridor, you race against your opponent to get to the other side of the board. But, on your turn you can either move your piece one space forward, or you can play one of your fences to slow down your opponent in reaching the other side. Are we getting a little hot under our collars, or is that just the competition?


Oh Snap!:

A Marbles Original that’s a take on the classic Booby Trap game of the 1960’s, take turns plucking out one disc at a time. But, all the discs are pressed together via a pressurized bar and one wrong move makes the bar SNAP forward. If it moves on your turn, you collect no points for the round. This game is perfect for those who like to be real, real close to each other.




Yes, you two may be in love, and that sometimes means pushing each other a round a bit, it’s time to take all of that out in Abalone, and excellent and award winning strategy game. Players take turns sliding their marbles around the board one space at a time, but players can move as many of their marbles in a single row at the same time.  The goal is to push six of your opponent’s marbles off of the board, but you can only push them if your marbles are head-to-head and you have at least one more marble than the row you’re pushing. As intense as it is, we’re sure you’ll kiss and make up later.


Give the games a try on your magical night. Just try not to wake the kids, you’ll be howling about all the fun you’re having all night long.
