Two-player games perfect for Valentine's Day

On the occasion of the celebration of love, we enjoy spending time with our beloved and sharing a special moment. Did you know that it's proven: couples who play together, stay together? Playing a board game could promote an increase in oxytocin secretion among couples, also known as the "love hormone". Couples are often encouraged to enhance their communication, whether in a competitive or strategic dynamic. This increase in interaction would help stimulate oxytocin production, thus promoting emotional closeness between partners. 

Perfect timing, as in this article, we share games perfect for playing as a duo. 

Happy reading!
