Board games are a popular pastime in my family home, especially during the holiday season. My own family have a book in which we’ve kept records of scores since the 90s. During every holiday, everyone from the kids to grandparents are stationed around the table trying their hand at everything from Monopoly or Trivial Pursuit to poker.

While nothing can replace the ecstasy of moving around physical pawns on a board, there are occasions when a digital version of your favourite game comes in very handy. Like when you are waiting at the airport, when the kids are getting agitated in the backseat, or when you simply want to take a few minutes to play by yourself.
