137 - Bored Games 🥱
Just because this lockdown isn’t all fun and games, doesn’t mean it can’t include some fun and games, right?! Here’s a few to help pass the time without leaving home...
Get Swinging ⚾️
Swing for the river from behind Labatt Memorial Park’s home plate without leaving your couch thanks to Rob Leth’s re-creation of the historic stadium for MLB: The Show 21.
Get Trivial 🤔
Keep an eye on the Library’s socials for links to their Monday Night Trivia challenges, or test your musical knowledge with Rock n’ Roll Bingo every Tuesday.
Get Local 📍
Enjoy Monopoly but wish you could play it with some local flavour? Find yourself a copy of I Luv London. Produced in 2009 by Big Brothers Big Sisters of London & Area, the board game was sponsored by local business and, yes, features multiple Farhi-owned properties.
Looking for something closer to Trivial Pursuit? See if you can get your hands on a copy of "Forest City Routes/Roots" like this family recently did.
Get Ready ☕️
Though they’re not open for board games yet, drop by Saga—the city’s newest board game and café—to show your support and grab some takeout while they wait to throw their doors open wide.
