FEW of us are out and about at the moment – but that does not mean you need to have a boring time indoors.
Why not enjoy the nights in and play a few fun games.
Do not worry, you need not break the bank account with these ideas:
GAME ON: Get out the classic board games.
I love a round of Monopoly but if you fancy something different, why not nab Mouse Trap for £19.99 at Smyths — usually £22.99 at Very.
Or Buckaroo is now £14.99, RRP £16.99.
The Entertainer also has a fabulous offer at the moment — with their boredom-buster deal, parents can save £5 when they spend £25 in store and online. What’s not to like?
SAVING: £5 at The Entertainer
CARD SHARP: Get a pack of £1 playing cards at Wilko and look up the rules for Spoons or Crazy Eights.
They are two of my favourites.
If you are a quiz show fan, The Chase cards are £5.99 at Waterstones and you can get up to 6.3 per cent back in cashback via Topcashback.
CHOCS AWAY: Sillier games include the After Eight Challenge, which involves you having to get a chocolate from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands.
Poundland’s £1 Mint Nights are a great After Eight dupe, £2 at Waitrose.
You will already know how to play musical chairs, Two Truths and a Lie, and good old Mr and Mrs.
SAVING: £1 on mint chocolates
APPY DAYS: There are loads of brilliant party game apps out there, most of which are free with in-app purchases.
I love Psych!, Who Can’t Draw? and Just Dance Now.
The latter is basically a digital dance mat — a physical one would set you back £25.99 at Very.
SAVING: £25.99 on a dance mat
QUESTION MASTER: Pub quizzes are always fun but you usually end up spending at least £10 on drinks.
Luckily, there are plenty of ready-made quizzes online and on YouTube.
SAVING: Around £10 on drinks
