Fortunately, there are board games.

Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) has a large collection of board games to choose from and customers can have them delivered directly to their doors. It’s perfect because it allows them to continue the social distancing trend of 2020 while still giving them something to do while stuck at home with their loved ones.

It is worth noting that Pandemic is not on this list. However, it may be because the board game about containing a virus outbreak is sold out online or has priced prices from other sellers.

Let’s take a look at Amazon’s ten best-selling board games.

The ability to uniquely formulate questions to find the opponent’s choices also makes it a great way to stretch these brain muscles.

Codenames is a word game for two to eight players. It is built for those 14 years and older, so parents of young children may want to skip this when looking for board games. Fortunately, the game only takes about 15 minutes to play.

Players must avoid gutters and climb ladders in this board game for two to four people. All players have to do is get to the top of the board to win, but it can be harder than it sounds. Am I crazy too, or was it called snakes and ladders when I was little?
