Tabletop games are a fun and simple way to bond and pass the time. I stayed inside a lot in my upbringing in New York, and board games were something I grew up on. These days I like browsing Kickstarter to see the independently made games.
Whenever there is an event I bring a deck of cards to pass the time.
A few of my favorites are Sugar Heist, Chili Mafia, and Sabobatage. They are collection based games that are easy to learn and you can ruin lifelong relationships. All in good fun.
Sure, it’s a bit annoying to have to explain the rules to a new person, but once it gets going, it’s fun!
