Replacing Boredom with Board Games

Did you ever spend time at a grandparent’s or aunt’s house and peered down at these board games collecting dust under their hutch?

Ever go to a cabin in the woods or beach house, and the only options at night for entertainment were on that dusty game shelf or in a closet storing relics of the past?

Did you grow up with a puzzle that was always on the card table in the side room, & every time you walked past it, you helped until it was finished?

You are hearing a lot about how Generation X can handle self- isolation better than other generations. Entertaining themselves when TV shows were always a rerun, the internet was not at their home yet, or was on a massive desktop in the computer lab at school.

And if the sun was out, you went outside was how they coped every weekend.   If you grew up before the world of the internet, which was commercialized in the mid 90s, your family time might have been the many board games that are on the rise and out of stock on Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target and many specialty online stores right now.

If you have more than two people in your self-isolation than your entertainment level increases tenfold. But if you don’t you can still score some opportunities to experience board games online!

Being on the internet is a Catch-22 these days. So many sources of information, the lack of contact with others and the constant scrolling through posts, articles, and negative comments can be a path with no end. However, on a positive note, with the internet, we can educate ourselves, play online with our friends and family. The internet allows you to play games like Words with Friends and 5-Second Rule, and even have virtual happy hours on Zoom or Google Hangouts while rolling the dice of Farkle, 1000 miles away from our besties. We are graced by the ability to use the internet as a distraction or communication like never before. Are we really bored or just unknowing of the many opportunities to play even while isolated? Search through Yahoo, Google, MSN, Duck Duck Go, and Bing, and you will see lots of videos of game unboxings or vlogs of influencers favorite games. You will even find tutorials of some of the more strategic games like Settlers of Catan and Dungeons and Dragons which has become an online rage with teenagers, once again. USA Today helps you find those hard-to-get favorites.
