Our March Adventure Date ended up being a triple date! We used the platform Zoom to have a game night with friends. We ran Jackbox Games on one machine and then had a separate machine that we participated on. Our friends Matt and Beth Fox (and their daughter Zara for a few rounds) and Brent and Jenny Small were able to join us through the wonder that is the internet. It was amazing to be able to laugh and interact with everyone even though we were obeying Governor DeWine’s Stay-at-Home order. We seriously live in the best time period for something like this to have happened. Can you even imagine it in the 80s when we were children? School would have had to send work through the mail or through weekly pick up, teachers would probably have to call every family separately each week, Grandpa and Grandma would never see what the grandkids were up to… We would be going absolutely nuts stuck at home with just each other! At least we have YouTube for virtual classes and streaming services to binge watch sitcoms or crime shows or Disney movies. We are so very lucky!!
Anyway, for our game night, we played Quiplash 2, Drawful, Fibbage 2, and Trivia Murder Party. I think everyone had some success, had some defeat, and had some belly laughs. It was one of the best evenings I have had since this whole “quarantine” thing happened. It was nice to see people other than my husband and kids, and it was so nice to use my brain in ways I have not had to for a while. 10 out of 10 would do it again – and often!
How have you been keeping busy at home? Do you have other games we could play remotely? Share your ideas in the comments!
