Intro 猬嗭笍

Are you in 馃樂 quarantine, but still want to play? Or someone you want to play with is far from you? Or you want to train your skills with 馃 bots, to try a cool new strategy?

Maybe you don鈥檛 have enough 馃捀 money to buy a new game? Or you can鈥檛 buy it because it was run out? It often happens to me. Maybe, you can buy it, but you want to try something before buying it?

Or maybe you want to take your favorite game with you on the 鉁堬笍 trip? Or to have the possibility to play something when you almost don鈥檛 have 鈱 time or waiting in the queue?

If you answer Yes to any question or you simply want to try something 馃啎 new – this page may be useful for you 馃槈

This is the page where I鈥檝e tried to create a table with all the places where you can play popular board games online or with your 馃摫 device. Why have I created it? Because most of the lists are not useful or/and outdated.

And if you don鈥檛 have anybody to play with, check these Discord servers:

board game bbq (discord.gg/rzQxJyR),board game barrage (discord.gg/JBUAsZV),boardgames (discord.gg/U3UDQtu)and tabletopia (discord.gg/meavpsC).
