Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

This product was recommended by Patrick Sinclair from All Home Robotics

It’s called Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. It’s a puzzle-based party game where the objective is to defuse a bomb. One player installs the game on his/her device and is able to interact with the bomb, which is a box covered in various puzzles, all of which need to be solved to disarm the bomb. How do you solve the puzzles? That’s where your friends or family come in. Everyone other than the bomb disarmer pulls up the game’s official Bomb Defusal Manual, which contains instructions to solve every single combination of puzzles that the bomb can have. It is up to them to work as a team, ask the disarmer what he/she sees in front of them, and use the information received by them to look up the manual and tell them how to disarm the bomb before the timer runs out and the bomb goes off. It just so happens that Zoom is the perfect application for everyone to communicate right from the safety of their homes. It is a fun, chaotic, and intellectually challenging game that will test your ability to relay information and it is sure to lead to some tense moments for the entire party. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Boggle

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

Boggle is an online word-search game that’s as much intriguing as it’s challenging.. We’ve been using Boggle as part of our remote working fun schedule and it’s been absolutely electricity. The rules behind Boogle are quite simple; one has to find as many words as they can on the grid. For bored-out adults who’ve been working from home for a while, this game provided the perfect opportunity to engage with fellow employees on a social basis, and have some fun while at it. To think of it, the boggle board is one of the most competitive sections in our remote working game-board.

Trivial Pursuit Game: Classic Edition

This product was recommended by Lynda Fairly from Numlooker

Classic trivial pursuit game. The questions have been slightly updated and they are still very hard, which is good and challenging! It took 6 and a half hours on Christmas Eve for all players to be on full cheese.. and we still didn’t get to finish this game! It’s a good board game for those who like challenging questions, but if you have children, I would say to buy a family edition or other easy option board game as it could take a very very long time to finish!On the plus side, the game pieces and wedges have been improved. The wedges have a ridge on top to prevent them from slipping down into the game piece, making it difficult to remove them, and they can’t be put in upside down, making it nearly impossible to remove them.
