"It’s important to still find ways to embrace this family time and enjoy one another’s company. It’s no surprise that my family has turned to board games." said David Norman, President of Goliath.

Goliath suggests going back to basics with signature board games such as Rummikub and Sequence – as families are looking to stay united in the face of cabin fever and find fun away from the screens.

Board games have always brought people together and are here for families to lean on during this time of staying at home. Break out these classics and be in the moment together – after all, play releases endorphins, which elevate the feeling of happiness.

Rummikub just turned 70! Break out the box and discover what makes it a timeless classic. It's easy to learn but packed with strategy - the "board" changes all the time as players adjust the tiles on the table.

With more than 55 million units sold, Rummikub is one of the world's best-selling and most-played games. The fast-paced, easy gameplay is ideal for people of different ages to play together.

“It’s important to still find ways to embrace this family time and enjoy one another’s company,” said David Norman, President of Goliath.

“We know – it can be tough! It’s no surprise that my family has turned to board games. We have a running Sequence tournament; my wife is in the lead and it’s getting pretty intense.”

Sequence is easy enough for kids and challenging enough for adults, great for individual or team play. With strategy and a little bit of luck, you'll be a winner.

Play a card from your hand and place a chip on a corresponding space on the game board. When you have five in a row, it's a Sequence. Learn to block your opponents or remove their chips and watch out for the Jacks - they're wild!

The Goliath Play Experts are now scheduling interviews on ways to say entertained in the current climate. Please reach out to Goliath’s PR Team at a.lloyd@goliathgroup.com for more information.
