Dungeons and Dragons

The team over at D&D have crafted a clever new marketing campaign: “Stay at Home. Play at Home”. They have pulled together a whole host of tips and brilliant free resources to take your D&D campaign online, using Zoom. So if you haven’t quite got round to introducing your date to your D&D party then now might be a perfect time.

If you’ve not branched out to hosting your RPG online yet, our top tip would be to get yourself an account with Roll20.net, the virtual tabletop simulator. Of course, you have the purist method of just telling the story and allowing your party to visualise their adventures in their minds or you can head to Roll20. You will find countless campaigns, with all the rules, maps and everything you need to make your session a success at the click of a mouse.

Online Board Games

One of the most streamlined ways to play tabletop board games online is through Tabletop. It’s a simulator, played through Steam, and has thousands of digital versions of everyone’s favourite games. You could set up a video call with your date and spend hours trawling through the library and getting some good game time in!

One of our favourite games, Ticket to Ride, has a brilliant online presence. You can download the app on iOS, Google Play, your Kindle or access it through Steam. You can host online games that cross platforms, so don’t worry if your date has an iPhone and you have an Android! It’s a great game to pick up and play, quick to learn and can become very tactical. You can even access some of the expansion maps (for an additional fee). If your date hasn’t levelled up from Scrabble and Monopoly just yet then Ticket to Ride is the perfect gateway game to open their eyes to the world of board games beyond what they might find in their local toy shop!

Not More Zoom Calls?

If you and your date have the same taste in board games then a great way of playing together is to bust open two copies of the same game at your respective houses and play via Zoom. This works especially well for cooperative board games
