Board games – we love them at Christmas or once we've had a tipple, but any other time of the year they're shoved in a cupboard and forgotten about. Why? They offer hours (sometimes days) of fun and can involve the entire family. No phones, no TVs, no game consoles. Sounds ideal.
It's time to dig your board games out, give them a dusting and get the whole family involved. Let's *try* to make lockdown a little fun at least. Need to update your collection? Or simply just don't fancy playing your only game (Monopoly) and falling out with everyone when you can't storm outside? It's understandable. Good job there's a board game sale on at The Works, then.
