For when you’ve exhausted all other isolation activities and are looking for a fun way to engage in some old fashioned playtime with your housemates or partner, why not look to board games?
They’re entertaining, fun (actually that one depends on the nature of the players), and get you look at something other than your phone, even if only for half an hour.
But since not all of us have a stocked-up board game closet at home, the good folk at Deliveroo and game store, Winning Moves, have taken it upon themselves to help bring the boards to you. Melbournians can now order a range of board games to their doors, delivered in 30 minutes.
Bored? Games, as the offering is called, has 30 different board and card games to choose from. There are classics like playing cards and Melbourne Monopoly, plus pop-culture-themed editions like Friends and Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit and Game of Thrones Cluedo. For trivia buffs, there’s pub quiz and Star Wars Top Trumps, plus many, many more for hours of entertainment.
Prices start from as little as $4.99 for classic playing cards, and climb to $69.99 for themed Monopoly. The games can be delivered within a 5km radius of Collingwood and Windsor, and are available on the Deliveroo app now.
Let the games begin!
