Why Playing Board Games is Better When You’re Drunk

With the constant desire to unplug from the digital world and its apps, board games are a totally great way to connect with your friends and to level-up a night out. /ESCAPE has the reasons why you should play (literally) on your next friday night!

Ah yes, board games. The ultimate leisure activity for those years when the internet wasn’t invented yet and the latest game consoles were pricey af. Board games, after being stored in the attic for so long, is now making a comeback! With the constant desire to unplug from the digital world and its apps, board games are a totally great way to connect with your friends and to level-up a night out.

People Stop Checking Their Phones

When you play a boardgame, be it good ‘ol Monopoly or Uno, people are more engaged than a typical night out. Some get competitive while some people are simply too bad at the game that it makes it funny. Whichever one it is, expect more laughing faces than faces glued on screens!

You Get to Know your Friends Better

If you’re playing the classic Truth or Dare or Never Have I Ever card game edition (which Yes Please has!), these games force people to share something about themselves that you probably would never have asked in the first place!

Create an Exciting Night

Make your night more fun by adding dares to the games! From drinking a shot to talking to some stranger at the bar, your nights are bound to get more memorable with games. Get your phones, IG-Stories, and power banks ready!

Perfect for those who ‘don’t dance’

We all have that one friend(s) that say ‘I don’t dance’ like a broken record and use it as an excuse to pass out on a great night out! So if they’re terrified of dancing but you also want them to have a memorable night, ask them out for a game night instead!

Everything is Ridiculously Funny
Take the ’S game’ for example, the premise is simple: say something related to what the other person said as long as it has no S. If you fail, you take shots of how many S-es there are in the word you said. Simple right? Try it with your friends over a good bottle and find yourselves lmfao in no time. Trust us.
