Ahhh, romance. The symphony of the heart, the grease on the gears of love. What could be better than a romantic evening with that special someone? Here is our tribute to that greatest of games, that most thrilling of quests, that most rewarding of puzzles, the original and ultimate multiplayer adventure: sweet, sweet romance!
(Like all good games, this one comes with a hint guide. Scroll all the way down for more details!)
A relaxing dinner, followed by fancy footwork on the dance floor – it’s a romantic tradition! It’s even more fun if you have a theme, like good country BBQ and line dancing, or bibimbap and Gangnam Style. Or tacos with Salsa!
Turn a dingy diner into a fancy five star restaurant. Think fast, act quickly, cater to everything your hungry customers demand, and you’ll have a beautiful bistro, elegant eatery, or romantic rendezvous in no time!
You don't need to know how to dice, blend or sauté, just how to read and remember a recipe. Make your way from the shopping list to the final touches by remembering everything you can about a recipe. Just make sure you do it all before the clock runs out!
Open a dance studio and teach your clients the hottest moves! Use your time management talents and matching game bonuses to prepare for the biggest variety show Hollywood has ever seen!
Always a good decision, unless one of you is allergic. Remember, the most romantic flowers are the ones you pick yourself, and the most romantic chocolates are the ones you don’t eat half of between the shop and the date!
Plant beautiful flowers, set up matches and cascades, and keep planning ahead to make your garden flourish round after round. For an extra challenge and higher scores, try Expert Mode! Can you become a true master gardener?
Build a blooming garden of blossoms, birds, and butterflies! Match flowers to customize your land’s plants, animals, statues, and more! Design iconic Japanese, Hawaiian, and French gardens, then save your personalized paradise as a screensaver or desktop.
The Great Chocolate Chase
Make and serve chocolate treats to international customers at exotic chocolate shops around the globe. Overcome new challenges at every turn in this all-new assembly management adventure based in the early 1900s!
Or, if you don’t live near a beach, a long walk in the woods. If you don’t live near a beach or woods, a stroll in the park will do, or a nice amble along the river. Honestly, the setting doesn’t matter. The important thing is walking, talking, and maybe getting ice cream along the way.
Create a castle in the sand by building a beach resort empire! Work your way to the top, and make people happy along the way. Master both time-management and hidden-object gameplay to hire workers, develop your property, and spread to new islands!
Mystery of Shark Island
Roam the beautiful beaches of Shark Island, gathering shells, sea glass and rocks you find along the way. Find the right ones and the mysteries of the lost island will begin to unravel before your eyes!
Anna's Ice Cream
Travel to exotic new locations, befriend international marketers, seek out rare ingredients, and create new chocolate confections in your quest to rebuild your chocolate empire.
They’re different for everyone, of course. Some women love men who are good with pets, or who have wavy hair, or who can tank for them in an Onyxia raid. Some men love women who play soccer, or don’t wear makeup, or can say naughty things in Italian. There are as many heart-keys as there are people on this planet... but with that said, here are a few perennial favorites.
Oooooo, shiny! Match gems to make beautiful jewelry, and keep your demanding customers happy! Do you have what it takes to impress the buyers, close the sale and keep your jewelry store open for business?
Rescue cute puppies on Puppy Island! Keep them safe, warm, and happy in your sanctuary. Use collected gems to buy them toys and decorations. Search for food and firewood supplies among the mysterious island ruins.
Unveil the drama in this casual sim adventure of love, challenge, and creative genius. Inspire artists, sculptors, dancers, and musicians to become masters of their craft. Sell brilliant works of art as you battle the elements to restore a once-thriving colony and attract new talent.
And now, as promised, MSN Games will reveal the Mysterious Secrets of Successful Romance! That’s right, the real deal, the right stuff, the tried-and-tested key to wooing that special someone. Read on...
Romance demystified, for men (women, please skip to the next paragraph)
Seriously, guys, it's just not that difficult. There's no "fine art" to romance, no matter what the relationship-help authors will tell you. It all comes down to three things: insight, attention, and appreciation. Insight means throwing out stereotypes and assumptions, and figuring out what her personal likes and dislikes really are. Attention means talking to her, and listening to her, with genuine interest and involvement, rather than just saying "mm-hmm" while you mentally try to solve a work problem or wish you were watching TV. And appreciation means making the effort to do something nice for her, as small as a sincere compliment on something you've observed about her, as lavish as cooking her favorite meal from scratch, as thoughtful as giving her some frivolous item that she would enjoy but would never buy for herself, or as selfless as accompanying her to an event that you would rather not attend. Insight, attention, appreciation – the only three things you need for a perfect romantic evening.
