Asmodee has officially launched a new way for people to play board games online during the pandemic with Connect & Play. The entire setup allows you to access a step-by-step instruction system and video walkthroughs explaining how to play a selection of Asmodee board games over video conferencing services. Doesn't matter if you use Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Discord, or whatever else you may have. You can head to the link above and look up instructions on how to play the games, some even come with Print & Play instructions, and then settle in for a game night over video conference. It's a nice alternative when you want to play with friends but can't visit. Here's more info from the company about the service and the games available.
"We thought about ways to bring socially distant relatives together, and truly believe that tabletop games are the best social entertainment there is" said Ruby Nikolopoulou, Head of US Marketing, Asmodee USA. "Connect & Play gives friends and families who can't physically be together a way to have fun and laugh, a must in these trying times and just in time for many of the upcoming holidays."
