3 Great Ideas for Valentine's Day

3 Great Ideas for Valentine's Day

February 9, 2016 | 2 min to read

Sook San Wan Valentine! Glad alla hjärtans dag! Happy Valentines day!

This coming February 14, couples will exchange gifts, children will exchange cards, and consumers will spend upwards 19 billion dollars celebrating.

Here's how three WPN stores are taking advantage:

1. Two-Headed Giant Events

Something of a no-brainer. Oath of the Gatewatch pairs well with Two-Headed Giant and Two-Headed Giant (2HG) pairs well with Valentine's Day. All three stores featured in this article run 2HG events, each with their own twist.

At Games Laboratory in Australia, the twist is the format. Couples pick their eight boosters randomly and build decks from sets going back to Theros.

Everyone's invited, of course (not just couples).

Guide your players through 2HG with the Quick Start Guide on our Marketing Materials page. It's under "Event Accessories."

2. Digital Valentine's Day Cards

Gryphon Games adds some romance to the prize pool at their 2HG Valentine's event: the winning couple earns a gift certificate to the restaurant of their choice.

They even take the theme a step further with a series of video Valentine's Day cards on their website.

"We not only love our jobs at Gryphon, but love having all of you wonderful people be a part of our lives"—View the messages here.

Some messages are cheeky, some messages are sincere, but each one is an easy, novel way to show some love to their customers.

3. Valentine's Day Care Packages

April Olsen at Rocket's Hideout puts together "Starter Kits" designed for players with "a partner or friend who may be on a different competitive level."

It's not too late—Valentine's Day is this Sunday. Start planning now!
