Feeling a little stir crazy these days? For many people, it's been over a month in self-isolation, so you'd be excused for going a little loopy. You already binged Tiger King, ESPN is dragging out The Last Dance, and your eyes have gone completely squinty from all that reading. So, now what? We've rounded up some things to help you stay entertained during this wacky time.
Funded by over 700% on Kickstarter, Drama Mayhem combines Apples to Apples with charades, creating all kinds of wild improv roleplays. This is the Adult-Only version, so be fully prepared to blush and laugh your buns off.
Whether you've got a backyard or just a big living room, Chippo(TM) will provide hours of fun. It's all in the name: the lovechild of golf and cornhole. Just make sure to moderate your alcohol consumption and/or move the breakables.
Got some things to get off your chest? Become a YouTube star, why don't ya? This setup helps you create a full home studio with just your phone so you can shout into the void to your equally empty heart's content.
You can't leave your home, but you can adventure around the Earth with AstroReality EARTH! This interactive 3D-printed globe uses AR to visualize the planet, including how it's affected by global warming, glacial recession, and even modern events like COVID-19. It's basically like being a god, watching over all your stupid little creations.
PutterBall combines minigolf and beer pong, giving you endless hours of competitive fun anywhere you have a few feet of space. Just provide your own beer, and get ready to relive your middle school/college days. (For many of us, they were very similar.)
When you're balling out, you want everybody to see you. With this basketball from HoloGear, you'll have all eyes on you. Made with a special blend of reflective leather, as soon as you take a picture or video of this ball, it glows on camera, so you can show off all your handles. Just make sure you have the skills to back it up, but even if you don't, that's just a different kind of entertainment.
When in doubt, competitively drink. This Mini Flip Cup Set comes with shot glass-sized cups so you can play for longer without losing your marbles (or your lunch). After all, you're not as young as you used to be. In fact, you've probably aged several years in the past few months.
One of the best uses of all this extra at-home time is learning how to cook. You can't eat out right now anyway, and even once you can, you'll at least have the option to save money as well as your arteries by making delicious meals at home. With this simple kit, one of those meals can be an amazing Thai curry for two, because it's not like you can fly out for some authentic Southeast Asian cuisine, either.
If music is more your bag, don't despair at the indefinite closure of your local club. Learn how to produce some music yourself! This extensive boot camp will teach you how to use leading tools like Ableton and Logic Pro X to produce professional-quality music so you can have your own tiny rave right in your living room (black lights not included).
Maybe you're more of a gamer than a musician. That's fine, in some circles. You can still change things up by learning how to actually create your own games from scratch. With this bundle, your game could reach Animal Crossing status the next time the world ends. Don't let Nintendo hog all those sweet, sweet apocalypse dollars.
