Online gaming is one of the ways you can play classic board games, or even make your own and still stay connected with people and make new connections. Below are a few of the most popular game simulators and online platforms available.
Acram Digital (titles such as Charterstone)
A lot of the games online won’t have rule books so it may be necessary to know how to play, but you can often find instructions and videos online to learn how to play. However, online gaming is also a great way to practice games that you may want to get better at, so you can ace it when you next meetup with your board game group.
If you’re not into online gaming, and you have a printer, you could try some print and play games. This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but a few I’ve found which may be of interest. Many kind publishers are offering free special versions of games especially for this quarantine which are worth a look.
Good Little Games have 11 games available.
Jelly Bean Games have quite a nice selection.
Asmodee have some games such as Catan and Dobble to print and play
Not quite print and play, but if you’re a fan of exploding kittens and all players have a set of cards you can play Quarantined Kittens
Some free and some paid games at PnP Arcade from top publishers such as Weird Giraffe Games and many more…
Some free quarantine colour and play from AndHeGames
A few games available in French, English and Spanish here
Admagic shoutout a few print and play games out on their print & play Facebook page
There’s lots of choice out there, hopefully you’ll find something to get stuck into, even if a regular board game session isn’t an option.
Now may also be a great time to play through a campaign or legacy game, a solo game, or the RPG which you never thought you’d get into. Maybe its time to learn how to play new ones.
