Top Ten Games for Lovers
This Valentine’s Day, say it with board games… here is Thirsty Meeples top ten guide to board games for lovers - enjoy!
10 Forbidden Island
Nothing like a visit to a beautiful tropical island to get the love buds blossoming. Just be careful where you tread though, this island is slowly sinking and you've a helicopter to catch.
Baby, you're a firework. Come on, let your colours burst. Make 'em go, "Aah, aah, aah"......er, not sure what happened there.... Hanabi is the fireworks game which apparently are quite the romantic things. These ones can be played with safely indoors. Boom, boom, boom.
8 Elk Fest
Tense day? Something still niggling away? Don't let it spoil your Valentine's Day night! A quick game of flicking wooden mooses across a river will be sure to help you relax and unwind. Except if you lose.
7 Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries
Not only has Ticket to Ride Nordic been designed with two players in mind, but the beautifully illustrated board can convince you that you're travelling through the snow covered peaks and fjords of Scandinavia. Watch out though... you could be fighting over some of those routes.
In every relationship comes the time when topic of flatulence has to be aired. PRRRT... (a.k.a. the fart game) is the perfect solution for helping to quickly overcome any embarrassment in the trumpet department early on.
5 Agricola - All Creatures Big & Small
Nothing like a bit of competitive animal husbandry to show your nurturing and compassionate side. Just don't drool over the Animeeples - that's not cool.
Nothing says 'I love you' quite like a large dollop of black humour as you pile misfortune after misfortune on your loved one's family. Gloom is the perfect way to get to know the darker side of your partner.
3 Tales of the Arabian Nights
Travel together to the land of the Arabian Nights, fly on a magic carpet, run with Ali Baba, sail across the seas with Sinbad. Regale one another with your heroic adventures in (probably) the best story telling game ever designed.
2 The Little Prince: Make Me a Planet
The game with a gigantic injection of cuteness, which in our books is damn fine anytime but especially so on Valentine's Day. Aside from being incredibly cute, the subtle strategies in this planet building game will keep drawing you back for more. One of Thirsty Meeples all time favourites.
