5 Best Stay at Home Activities During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Let's face it folks, the year 2020 has taught us how to spend an extraordinary amount of time inside our homes as opposed to being able to get out in our usual manner and enjoy group gatherings and activities. We are faced with the same "four walls" day in and day out, and the monotony could drive anyone batty. There is a solution to your boredom, and it is something that you, AND your entire family can enjoy as individuals, or as the whole unit....


We all have been playing games since we were small children. From Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders to Monopoly, Risk or for us lucky ones, card games like Spades, Hearts and Rummy 500. A lot has changed since we were kids however. The "Gaming Landscape" has moved considerably.

Fantasy games like Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering and Warhammer 40K are taking hobbyists by storm. With modern tools like 3D printers, table top war gaming is a booming industry. The old staples of card games, board games and dice games have been re-invented too. You can now get your old favorites like Battleship, mixed with everyone's favorite Pirate movie franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean or Doctor Who Risk and more. These fun activities are all available at a game shop near me.

Yes, near me at Bobbaloo's. 700 W. Fayette Ave. in Effingham, IL. Can't get to the store, give a call, see what's in stock and we'll ship it out to you too.

Oh yah, that list. My top 5 stay at home activities are:

1. Rick and Morty Monopoly Board Game

2. Harry Potter - Death Eater Rising Board Game

3. Call of Cthulhu Role Playing Game

4. Nightmare Before Christmas Yahtzee

5. Munchkin - Disney, Ducktales, Marvel or Harry Potter.

So if you are looking for something to do during this pandemic, getting yourself a few games that aren't driven by the Internet might be a good idea. I mean, we can only stare at Facebook and Snapchat so long before our necks will be permanently looking down. (Wait, weren't cavemen always looking down?) :)
