A 60-second speed read on the games people are playing in lockdown.
One of the few positives of the lockdowns has been that families living in the same home have spent more quality time together.
This ‘together time’ has seen a surge in the number of board games sold.
Amazon has just released the top ten games that families across Runcorn and the UK have been buying in the battle to banish boredom.
