Call it an extension of JOMO (that's FOMO's unashamedly unsociable cousin, the Joy Of Missing Out, if you weren't aware), but board games are the new clubbing. Don't @ us.
Shopbop - as always - is one step ahead, carrying East Dane's modern recreations of vintage masterpieces from the '50s and beyond. Cluedo, anyone?
Weather - do your worst. Between this and the Madeleine McCann documentary on Netflix, we've got plenty to do on the sofa.
Shopbop ain't the only ones to jump on board (*ahem*) the bandwagon, either. Public Cafe in JLT provides it all - the location, the coffee and the games. Aside from our own front room, this hidden gem is where you'll find us from now on, enjoying the comfort and nostalgia of a bit of Monopoly.
If you do fancy branching out, however, there's also been an uptick in real-life board games around town with the likes of Escape Hunt, Jumble and Phobia. If you ask us, though, you can't beat a bit of Pictionary.
