We all know the feeling. You’re stuck inside on a rainy day with nothing to do. You’ve already marathon-watched your favourite show on Netflix and you need something else to do. 

So what do you do? Dust off those old board games and break them out! Board games are the perfect rainy day activity. They’re fun, challenging, and can be played with a group or by yourself.

So which board games should you break out on a rainy day? 

Well, that depends on your mood. If you’re feeling competitive, try a strategy game like Diplomacy or Risk. If you’re in the mood for something lighter, try a party game like Pictionary or charades. And if you’re looking for something that will really make you think, try a puzzle game like Sudoku or crosswords.
