For those who have watched all of their favourite films and box sets too many times to count and are looking for another way to keep their household entertained, board games are a good option.

Getting the whole family involved in a light-hearted competition will guarantee a few laughs and create fond memories, not only during lockdown 2.0, but also over Christmas.

During the early days of the coronavirus pandemic and the first lockdown, Google Trends saw a 190% spike in shoppers searching for good board games to play.

This time around there has been another increase in people searching for “family games”, as well as for the “best board games” in the last week alone.

Monopoly, Scrabble and Cluedo are timeless classics that are fun for everyone to play. However, there are plenty of other board games available to buy now, which means you can get in some practice before the real competition begins at Christmas.

Whether you are looking to test your general knowledge, strategic prowess, or grasp of the English language, there is a game to suit your tastes.
