Indoor Games

You’re stuck inside, everyone’s getting restless . . . now what? Time to break out these games. Play them with your lockdown crew—or send an extra to a friend and play together on video chat.

01

Cinephile: A Card Game

Cory Everett

Cinephile is a card game for film nerds, movie geeks, and cinephiles. With multiple ways to play based on difficulty level ranging from casual movie-goer to bonafide film nerd, Cinephile will have you and your friends racking your brains for Sean Connery’s lesser-known films, Cate Blanchett’s filmography, and Steve Buscemi’s most memorable cameos.

02

Punderdome

Jo Firestone and Fred Firestone

One part game, one part conversation starter, you don’t need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way. A player draws two prompt cards from the deck and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts. When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best.

03

Women in Science Puzzle

Rachel Ignotofsky

This colorfully illustrated 500-piece puzzle, based on the bestselling book Women in Science, features 15 trailblazing women of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and is a perfect gift for budding feminists and science lovers. A unique 18 inch x 24 inch poster is included for referencing the design while working on the puzzle.

04

Rewordable Card Game

Allison Parrish, Adam Simon, and Tim Szetela

Every letter counts in a game of Rewordable! Each of the 120 cards has been selected for optimal word crafting. Build a new word and be rewarded—or add to other players’ words to steal their points. Create the largest lexicon of words by the end of the game to become the Rewordable champion. This variable deck was carefully crafted to make it easier to form longer, more common words, and offers a fresh linguistic experience every game. Happy word-making!

05

The Nasty Woman Game

Amanda Brinkman

You can never have enough feminists on your side when it comes to fighting the patriarchy. In the game of Nasty Woman, you take turns drawing cards, following the prompts, and strategizing your next move to collect as many Nasty Woman Cards as possible—including Beyoncé, Michelle Obama, Gloria Steinem, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The last player standing after all other players have been eliminated wins the game—and is the nastiest feminist of them all.
