Chocolates, Flowers and Fantage

FORT LEE, N.J. – Feb. 09, 2012 – Valentine’s Day is the time of the year when people reach out to others to show they care. Fantage.com (Fantage) – a leading virtual world for kids ages six to 16 – is hosting five days of Valentine’s Day-themed in-game festivities. Beginning in the late afternoon tomorrow and ending on Tuesday, Feb. 14, Fantage users can enjoy new items, games and prizes in celebration of St. Valentine himself. Interested users can register to try Fantage for free at www.fantage.com.

Fantage’s Valentine’s Day celebration includes:

  • Chocolate Fountain: Players who walk through the constantly running Chocolate Fountain in Downtown while wearing one of the limited edition costumes will get covered in chocolate. This sweet trick will work on new costumes, as well as those from the last time the Chocolate Fountain appeared in Fantage.
  • Scavenger Hunt: 20 golden hearts have been hidden around Fantage. Players should make sure to visit every corner of every town during the event as a small prize will be given for every golden heart found.
  • Stamp Book: A seasonal celebration is not complete unless you get the stamp book filled. Fantage fans who complete all the Stamp Book activities during the event will receive the 2012 Valentine's Day Medal.
  • Prize Booth and Limited Event Items: 10 Valentine’s Day related items await players in the Prize Booth located at the Carnival. Additional Limited Event Items such as a Strawberry Costume can be purchased at the Item Cart. The Event Friendship Bracelet can be found in the Friendship Bracelet vending machine.
  • Group game: In “Finkelstein’s V-Day Battle,” players are dressed up in parfait costumes trying to get sprinkled with different toppings. At the end of each game, the team with more users covered in a specific topping will win.
  • Four all-new mini-games, including Chocolate Boxes, Match-Maker, Spread the Love and Chocolate Delivery
