Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, why not plan a geeky way to celebrate regardless of your relationship status? I am sharing some suggestions for a geeky V-Day whether you have a partner, are spending it with friends, or are focusing on some self-love.
With Your S.O.
Go to an arcade
If you want to go out for Valentine’s Day, why not go to an arcade instead of dinner? You can also see if you have a barcade (bar arcade) local to you if you want a more adult-focused experience. The fun of classic arcade games with some friendly competition is sure to be a fun time.
Play some co-op games
If you would rather stay home for V-Day, you can keep gaming as a part of your night with some co-op games! Both video and board games are an option for this and I have suggestions for both co-op video games and board games that will be great for you and your S.O.
With Your Friends
Host a Board Game Night
If your Valentine’s Day will be more about platonic love, a board game night with friends will be a lot of fun. There are plenty of party games that will get even the least-gamer types to have fun. Plus you can make it a potluck so you have food and drinks along with your night.
Go to an escape room
An escape room is great for a friend group since you can, and sometimes should, have more than two people. It will be a very fun evening and a great bonding experience for your friend group.
Binge your favorite series
Rewatching your favorite series is really a fun thing to do any day of the year, including Valentine’s Day. Get some chocolates, your favorite drink, put on comfy clothes, and let the binge begin.
Play Visual Novels/Dating Sims
For the gamers, visual novels are fun and relaxing games that often have relationships as a major part of them, thus making them great for Valentine’s Day. Some suggestions for good visual novel games, in my opinion, include Arcade Spirits, Dream Daddy, Monster Prom, and Speed Dating for Ghosts.
Curl up with a book
Like binge-watching your favorite series, curling up with a book is great any day of the year. You can make it more V-Day by reading a romance specifically and enjoy the cozy night in.
How are you spending Valentine’s Day? Let me know with a comment below!
Arcades are fun! I think me and the fiance are sticking inside though because we both got sick this week :/
What about binge play a new game that doesn’t fall under those categories? Perhaps I would like a date with Death from Darksiders II this Friday.
