As the second wave of the corona pandemic kicked in, we’re again stuck at home for most of our time. But we must not succumb to pessimism. You can also have great fun indoors, for example by playing board games with your partner and/or roomies. Board games are a great way to pass the time. And next to it being fun, it’s also a fun way to improve your creativity and critical thinking. That board games are for children is not a valid excuse here. There are many fun board games especially designed for adults that really challenge your brain. Curious which ones? Then read along!
Monopoly: the best selling real-estate board game! And by Monopoly for adults we don’t mean Disney’s Monopoly. There are also Monopoly editions for adults. You can play, for example, Queen, Game of Thrones and Millennials Monopoly. Which theme do you fancy?
Curious about which friend of yours is the smartest? Find it out with the classic Triviant pursuit board game. Winning this traditional board game is determined by a player’s ability to answer culture, history, entertainment, sport, literature and art, science and other general knowledge questions. You move around the board by answering the questions correctly. Also many theme editions of Triviant have been resealed, for example a Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Saturday Night Live Triviant.
Exploding Kittens (yeah that’s really its name) is a strategic card game. The players in this game draw cards hoping to avoid picking up the Exploding Kitten. If they accidently do, they’re out. But if you have the so-called Defuse card, they can keep the kitty at bay. Done playing Exploding Kittens? Try the expansion packs Barking Kittens, Streaking Kittens or Imploding Kittens. Fun guaranteed!
The Awkward Storyteller
Are you looking for a game that involves much humor? Then you should definitely try out The Awkward Storyteller. This game involves teamwork and lots of humor. How it works? One person picks a story card and thereby starts the story telling. Others ask questions to help the Storyteller build his story. Consequently, the Storyteller needs to use words or letters from other cards. This results in a hilarious outcome.
Stuck at home and played too many board games already? Then another great way to pass the time is building your own home cinema. With a simple mini beamer and projection screen (Dutch: projectiescherm); you experience cinema-quality in your own living room. Grab some snacks, a beer or a wine from your own wine climate cabinet (Dutch: inbouw wijnklimaatkast) and enjoy your home cinema to the fullest!
