These Games Make Staying In Better Than Going Out
This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.
When you reach a certain point in your life, a night on the town becomes more about fear of facing the interminable march of time than actually having fun. Well, enough is enough. Take that bra off, put on your comfy pants, and hunker down, because staying in is the new going out. Of course, you don't wanna just sit around staring at each other. You'll need activities, preferably ones that bring out everyone's goofiest, most scarily competitive selves. You see where we're going with this. With these games, staying in will actually be a lot more fun than going out.
