WE are all stuck indoors once again – but that need not mean we cannot have ourselves a whole load of fun.
It is the perfect time for family games — and delicious grub. Here are some cheap and cheerful ideas . . .
Game on: Dust off the board games. I love old fave Monopoly but, if you fancy something different, get Mouse Trap for £19.99 at smythstoys.com — usually £24.99 at very.co.uk — or Buckaroo for £12.99, RRP £16.99.
Save: £5 on Mouse Trap
Card sharp: Get a pack of £1 playing cards at wilko.com and look up the rules for Spoons or Crazy Eights. They are two of my all-time favourites.
If you are a fan of TV quiz shows, The Chase cards are £5.99 at waterstones.com and you can get up to 6.3-per-cent cashback via Topcashback.
Appy days: There are loads of brilliant party game apps, most of which are free with in-app purchases.
I love Psych!, Who Can’t Draw? and Just Dance Now. The latter is basically a digital dance mat — a physical one would set you back £26.69 at very.co.uk.
Save: £26.69 on dance mat
Be silly: Dafter games include the After Eight Challenge, which involves you having to get a chocolate from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands.
Poundland’s £1 Mint Nights are a great dupe of After Eight, which are £3 at Waitrose. Doubtless, you will already know how to play Musical Chairs, Two Truths And A Lie, and Mr and Mrs.
Save: £2 on mint chocs
Snack attack: Want to treat yourself to a Just Eat delivery? Right now you can order any two large pizzas and two sides for £26.99 from dominos.co.uk, which usually cost £45.96 – prices may vary.
Or order a tub of sharing chocolates from tesco.com, they’re on offer for £3.50 down from £4 until Tuesday. I would recommend Celebrations.
Save: £18.97 on pizza
Deal of the day
SING your heart out with the Intempo Portable LED Karaoke Bluetooth Speaker, now £29.99, down from £49.99, at robertdyas.co.uk.
CHIN, chin, pass me the gin! I am obsessed with this new shimmering candy cane- flavoured gin.
It is available exclusively at Home Bargains from today, for £8.
