Cardboard Cupid – Games to Play on Valentine’s Day

Looking for a great way to spend some quality time with that special someone today? We've got some great suggestions for games that are perfect for two!

Ah… Valentine’s day. Love is in the air, chocolate is in our tummies, and romantic nights of board games are taking place all across the country. Well, at least we hope they are! If you still haven’t decided on what to do with your special someone, maybe you should see if a little bit of cardboard might strike up some budding flames of romance! (but please keep any open flames away from said cardboard! 😉 )

If you need some ideas, we’re here to help! We’ve brought together a collection of some of our favorite articles and reviews of two player games from the past year!

First, take a journey down lovers lane with this quaint story of an innocent first date, turned game exploration evening. This was one a big one for us last year! It showcases six two player games, that are perfect for dates, in a new and creative way.

Recruiter by day, board game enthusiast by night. Despite controversy, i’m a firm believer that collecting can be just as fun as playing games. My favorite aspect of the board gaming hobby is its ability to bring people together in a meaningful way.
