Beat Cabin Fever With a Board Game
In an article in the The Guardian Online, the independent student newspaper at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, Chelsey Levingston suggests that students challenge their friends to a board game to beat the winter blahs. According to Chelsey, games suggested by students included:
Apples to Apples – A word association game, Apples to Apples is fun with large groups of people or at least three friends.
Scene-It? – A movie trivia game featuring DVD movie clips and sound bytes, best played with large groups. Expect a lot of yelling.
Clue – The classic mystery game has been reinvented in a DVD edition.
Trivial Pursuit – There are several new interactive DVD versions, including Pop Culture, Saturday Night Live, Totally 80′s, and 90′s editions.
Scrabble – The classics never get old, and Scrabble is one of the very best games for intellectual stimulation and quiet conversation.
