We have been playing Call to Adventure. We play this one asynchronously now (learn more about how we incorporated games into our daily schedule), but we had to start playing together at the game table for a few rounds to learn the rules.
If you want to form new neural pathways, play a new game. It hurts the brain to learn new rules and the strategy needed to win.
Call to Adventure is part board game, part role-playing game, and you can decide between heading toward the light or dark side.
I especially love this game because of the diversity of the characters and all the different ways to earn points and build your character’s story.
