We’re in this together, people. Each and every one of us has a duty to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has already become the most serious viral threat of this generation. Things are finally starting to get under control in China, and that’s great news under you consider exactly how that was achieved. Only through strict lockdowns, self-quarantines, social distancing, and other measures was the country able to slow the horrific spread of COVID-19. Europe is now the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak, and things there will get worse before they start to get any better. Next, of course, comes the United States, and things are going to get very bad here until people start taking COVID-19 much more seriously.

Even if your state hasn’t issued an order to shelter in place, you should seriously consider taking some initiative and helping to slow the spread of the virus. Doing so can save lives, both within your family and in your community. All that time spent indoors is bound to be stressful at times, of course, and it will be important for all family members to get plenty of alone time to avoid getting on each other’s nerves. Shared experiences are just as important though, and board games are a great way to have fun together as a group.
