There are times when there is an overall void and you have an amazingly free day. Being an unexpected free day, you are zapped as to how to spend it. Has this happened to you?
Only you and your partner, or your mom or dad, or a sibling are at home, and both of you are free, not knowing what to do. I don't know about anything else, but I am certain that you can play a board game and have a great time.


Yes, evergreen, wily old scrabble, which is being played since ages immemorial (well almost!). Need I tell what scrabble is! Each player gets a number of letters and a stand to set them.
Using those letters, players have to make words on the board. The longer the word, the better chances of scoring more than your opponent. The squares on the board where you put the tiled letters are entitled a value.


You need not be a Gary Kasparov or Vishwanathan Anand to play chess. It's no doubt a lot of exercise for your gray cells, but it's great for those good at forming strategies. Horses, king, queen, pawns and bishops on a checkered board, await.
