Legend says a star is born every time a monopoly game ends. Because that’s how long it takes. On all the times it just won’t end, be prepared to see toppled boards and slammed doors you will be laughing about the next day.
Tease it, lock it away in a closet or call it old school, but you know nothing can complete a party night like a board game with your family. Not only will you have fun playing board games during this lockdown, but also you will learn a lot about your family you never knew before. A board game and a cup of coffee are all it takes!
