There are only so many television shows you can re-binge-watch before you start needing a bit more stimulation. One of our favourite ways to keep your mind active is through board games – whether in person with your household members, or online with your friends, there are lots of ways to play.
If you don’t have the resources to purchase these games, consider searching for online games to keep you busy at home. Some people are planning their own online tournaments, which is a great way to get in touch with your competitive pals.
