The CastleVille Valentine’s Day Spirit is present in your Kingdom and there are two new features introduced by Zynga to make it clear: the Valentine Shop and the Spirit feature that rewards you with cool items for increasing one character’s Valentine Spirit. I am here to share with you a complete guide for these two new features, but before that you might want to check out the details about the Spread the Love mission series that has also been released alongside the Valentine’s Day content.

First of all, let’s see how to build your Valentine Shop in CastleVille: all you have to do is to head to the market and buy it for 2,000 coins. Each Valentine Shop also needs 10 Wood Logs, 2 Stones and 15 Pink Lace (you get Pink Lace from your friends, but you also get rewarded with 25 of them for completing the first mission in the series).

After finishing the Valentine Shop in CastleVille, you can start focusing on Spirit – increasing the Spirit of your kingdom characters is something that you will have to do – both to complete missions and to get some cool prizes.

In order to increase one character’s Spirit Bar, you must first select that character and start crafting items that he or she likes (they will be posted next to the character, as you can see in the image below).

Each character has a favorite item and crafting it will increase their Spirit bar faster. However, you can only increase the Spirit of one character at a time, so if you are crafting an item that more CastleVille characters like, only the selected one will get extra Spirit points.

The good news is that you can have more Valentine Shops in the game in order to increase the Spirit of your characters faster, and there are lots of promised cool items (most of them Valentine’s Day themed) to win for leveling up. So get to work and make the people happy!
