Gameboard with pieces

Boredom Busting Board Games

Posted on: February 15, 2021

Got the lock down blues?  Tired of screen time?  Over sourdough bread making?  Done with podcasts?  It’s boardgame time!  Branch out from staples like Monopoly, The Game of Life, and Candy Land.  Competitive or collaborative, Pendragon Comics has a host of table top games that’ll keep you and those in your household entertained for many indoor hours.

Scrolling and streaming platforms make up enough of your day, so taking time to unwind with those in your home might prove that the remedy to being cooped up is being cooped up with those nearest and dearest–it might revive your friendly fighting spirit too!

  • The little ones may become sleuths and solve a mystery or two before bedtime beckons when playing Scooby Doo Betrayal at Mystery Mansion.  As Fred is fond of saying, “Looks like we have another mystery on our hands.”
  • Fun for the whole family:  Code Names is a multi-player spy game.  Espionage?  Subterfuge?  This game has it all.
  • And when 9:00 p.m. rolls around and the over 12 crowd are looking for a challenge it’s time to set up Betrayal at House on the Hill, a multi-player game set in a haunted house where you’re either a hero or a traitor and it’s up to the good guys to inflict maximum damage (via the roll of the dice) before it’s too late!

Betrayal is in the name of 2/3 of the games above (and implied in the third) so keep your guard up.  You can’t be bored when you’re trying to suss out who’s going to turn on you!  But it’s just a game . . .  right?

Settle in for some indoor fun and see who’s competitive edge shows itself.  Clear your table and get your snacks in order because it’s time for a showdown!  No matter your age, skill level, or interest there is a board game for you.

Pendragon Comics and Cards is offering curbside pick-up.  Call to place your order at 416-253-6974, open on Wednesday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  Cash in person and credit over the phone.  Don’t forget to tag us in your family friendly “game-on” pics @cloverdalemall
