@idktonight’s round-up of the best games to keep you sane this week. Most of these are free or super cheap, so get to it!

1. Board Games

a) Clue — Nothing like a classic whodunnit to pass the time. It was Colonel Mustard in the Library with the pipe!

b) Trouble — Nothing like popping that plastic bubble and hoping the race around the board goes your way.

c) Chess — Never learned? Challenge each other to learn the brainiac’s game. Check out this video to get a basic understanding.

d) Monopoly — Who knows? It may just inspire you to start a business when all this corona stuff is over with. Check out the Friend's version and may the best player win!

e) Life — It’s the game of life! Create your dream world while this sorta scary one melts away. Also recommended: chomping on some Life cereal while you play.

g) Murder Mystery Puzzle (BePuzzled) Are you a puzzle fanatic? Try to complete this 1000-piece set and uncover the hidden clues to solve the murder mystery.

h) Movie Misquote Fill in the blanks and relive iconic film moments.
