Raise your hand if you’re sitting at home right now reading this. If you are, you’re not alone (but hopefully, you are at least six feet away from anyone). Many nations around the world continue to grapple with the ongoing effects of COVID-19, forcing millions of people to shift the bulk of their lives indoors in order to help mitigate the outbreak.
That means if you live in a bustling yet pricey city like New York or San Francisco, there’s likely a roommate or two (or a few) quarantining in close quarters with you. Inevitably, you’ll be spending time together and what better way to give all your minds a playful break than with a few classic games?
It’s hard not to reminisce on lighter times while playing throwbacks like Jenga and Guess Who. And would it really hurt to briefly escape from coronavirus’ dominating presence each day with a quick (and more lighthearted) round of Game of Life?
HYPEBEAST has compiled several fun options to help you pass the time during this unique phase of life. Scroll below to browse stylish new versions of classic games, puzzles and more.
