Playing Through the Power Outage
Winter storms are inevitable and often result in significant storm damage. Unfortunately we can’t control the weather, but weathering the storm safely indoors can be a lot of fun if you’ve stocked up on some important items.
No, we do not mean batteries and flashlights, although you should certainly have plenty of those on hand. When it comes to indoor fun during a winter storm, we say bring on the board games!
While we love the classics -- Monopoly, Clue, Trivial Pursuit -- it’s exciting to try something new, which is why we appreciate Wirecutter’s list of the year’s best board games. Stock up on a few and store them near your emergency supplies.
Winter is Coming. Where are Your Board Games?
When the power goes out that’s your signal to prove to your family that you are the ultimate board game champion. Here are a few of the top-rated games this year that should make an appearance during the next storm!
- Scythe: A game to test your strategy and decision skills, Scythe will take you a good chunk of time to complete, perfect for playing by candle or flashlight.
- Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Similar to the classic “who done it” game of Clue, this Holmes game will make you and your family feel like true detectives.
- Betrayal at House on the Hill: Another mystery game inspired by the one and only, Scooby-Doo! Explore a mansion while playing the role of a character with specific personality traits!
Control what you can this storm season by stocking your home with emergency supplies and entertainment for the whole family.
