Under the current circumstances, many of us have to stay at home, except when buying food and other essentials. A lot of people have been working at home as well, setting up their own home office until things get back to normal, or the “new normal,” rather.
So whether we like it or not, we will be spending most of our time indoors. Fortunately, there are many things we can do to pass the time, other than watching movies or TV shows. When it comes to fun and entertainment, we suggest you spend your free time playing board games!
Here are Some Board Games for People of All Ages
We’ve checked out different board games available in the market today, and found some “classic” games along with more “recent” ones. Some of these are flash card/card games, and technically do not require a “board” to play, but still enjoyable nonetheless:
1. Ludo / Snakes & Ladders
Buy this on Amazon for AED 9.40.
This is a 2-in-1 board game featuring two of the most popular games for young children: Ludo and Snakes & Ladders. In Ludo, players take turns rolling the dice to “race” their tokens from start to finish. The objective is quite similar for Snakes & Ladders, except there are “ladders” that take your tokens up, and “snakes” that bring them down. Cool!

Sequence is a strategy game that can be played by children and adults alike. The objective is to form rows of five chips on the board by placing them on spaces corresponding to the player’s cards. The set includes 1 folding game board, 2 decks of playing cards, 135 chips, and complete instructions.

Taboo is a guessing game based on clues, and its suitable for teenagers as well as adults. Basically, the objective is to have your partner guess the word in your card without using the word itself. Of course, this is easier said than done, unless you’re a word whiz!
