It’s mid-Winter…cold and grey, windy and dark. The holidays are over and the Spring thaw is not yet in sight. Boredom begins to set in. You’ve systematically binge-watched your way through all your Netflix picks and Red Box movies, going out into the blustery elements is too much to bear and your failed New Year’s resolutions have you on the verge of a deep depression. This is the perfect time of year to stay indoors and spend some time with friends and family. A perfect time for Game Night!
