The good old 90s taught us to take our pens, pencils, and papers to another level. We amped up the paper plane-paper boat game by introducing pencils and pens! ‘Name, Place Animal Thing’ and ‘Join The Dots’ is still doing the rounds. If you like to collect board games, then I’m sure you have Pictionary or Scrabble at home. All you need for this is at least two persons, a sheet of paper and a pencil each, the more the number of people the merrier it shall be.
