DIFFERENT TYPES OF INDOOR AND OUTDOOR GAMES ONE SHOULD TRY

  • Written by News Company


Games are integral parts of human history and an integral milestone in the development of human civilization. They are known to be one of the oldest forms of human interaction, perhaps even pre-dating the development of writing and even language itself. Certain kinds of ball-games and board games even had religious and cultural significance. Evidence has been found of games being played in ancient Egypt- hieroglyphics have been found depicting the game of senet, dating back to more than 5000 years ago.

Games are generally an organized and structured form of play governed by a set of rules and played for a variety of purposes ranging from recreation to education. For many cultures, they were the conduit through which philosophies and world-views were passed on from generation to generation. The human brain has evolved largely to aid three-dimensional movement.

Playing a game that requires physical exertion is beneficial for your health. Not only do physical games like football and basketball help an individual keep their health up, but even indoor board games like chess or even monopoly help improve an individual’s cognition and strategic thinking.

Unfortunately, due to the spread of COVID-19 many team-sports can not be played since social distancing is important these days. However, there are a lot of games and non-contact sports like Kotara bowling or laser tag that one can play even during a lockdown.

In this article, you will learn about a multitude of different games that you can try yourself. Indoors and Outdoors!

MONOPOLY

This board-game was invented by Lizzie Maggie, a writer, and novelist. The original name of the popular board-game was “The Landlord’s game”, and it was designed to raise awareness of the evil of capitalism. A monopoly means the domination of the market by a single entity. The object of this board-game is to become that single entity and buy up all the real estate on the board. When other players’ game-piece arrive on your real estate, they have to pay you rent. The winner of the game is the one person who has monopolized most of the board and driven all rivals to bankruptcy

Monopoly is a fun way to spend time with your family, learn financial concepts like mortgage, tax, and real-estate and also teach your kids about the evils of capitalism. Just try not to get frustrated and flip the board.

PANDEMIC

Extremely relevant to the current worldwide situation, pandemic puts you in the shoes of four specialists trying to stop a global catastrophe. This game can be played by two to four players and is centered around cooperation instead of competition. The board consists of a world map with 48 connecting cities. All players start at the Center for Disease Control or the CDC in Atlanta and with each turn travel from city to city around the globe. The goal of the game is to use different player actions like “Establish research center” and “share information with another player” to work together to stop the spread of various diseases.

Pandemic is a brilliant board game that teaches team thinking, strategic planning, and cooperation. It would be a fun way to pass the time while also bonding with your family and friends.

KITE-FLYING

Since it is a lockdown, one of the few spaces that can be accessed is rooftops. This is perfect for the ancient game of flying kites. Kite-flying is a recreational activity generally done in times of celebration in Asia.

HOPSCOTCH

Another good non-contact game. Everyone is familiar with hopscotch. Just needing a pavement or floor and some chalk or removable marker for the markings, hopscotch is a fun little game to play to improve your mood. You can also put down a permanent one in the hallway, so anyone passing has to skip and jump to pass through it. A stone or if indoors, a stuffed animal can be thrown into one of the squares, and the player must skip retrieving the object. A simple game, hopscotch is easy to learn (if you have not already as a child) and easy to teach.

CHESS

The game of kings, chess has been around for a millennium and a half. The game originates from northern India, and it is one of the most recognizable board games on the planet.

According to some recent research, it was found that chess grandmasters can burn 6000 calories during a tournament just by sitting. So teach your kids this game, and play it yourself too to remain trim and in shape during this lockdown!

IN CONCLUSION

The whole world is currently going through much uncertainty. COVID 19 has brought the entire planet to a complete stand-still. Lockdown is very taxing on everyone. In these times it might prove beneficial to play some games with your friends. Be it videogames with online friends or board games with your family. Stay safe, and have fun!
