Home entertainment, old style: German parlour games, survival in Corona times

Being in lockdown with a small kid brought back something that we neglected due to all the offers of the electronic age: Family and group entertainment via parlour games, a term I never heard in English before I researched it for this article. The German word “Gesellschaftsspiel” was with me throughout my childhood. Not to speak of card games, that are extremely popular in German pubs. Some of the games of my childhood are well known in Britain as well: Monopoly, for example. Or Risk, the legendary war game. Or Scrabble. All these are now commonly played on the internet or even on the phone. Germans even have an own online service to connect board gamers, so they don’t have to meet in person
