Whether you travel for work or pleasure, one of the most consistent issues is figuring out how to entertain yourself, both while you are traveling and once you arrive at your destination. Here is a look at some of the best options for traveling games available to you to help with this.
A staple of portable gaming for decades, or some could argue centuries; board games are one of the easiest options when it comes to traveling entertainment. There isn’t much to be said about board games that you wouldn’t already know; however, just because the format is understood doesn’t make it stale or predictable. New board games are being released constantly, and innovations in the fields of player interaction and board style keep even relatively old hat concepts feeling fresh. Below are a few board games that you could take traveling with you:
Pandemic. A brilliant combination of innovative card systems and tense gameplay experience, Z-Man games’ iconic creation is a brilliant multiplayer experience for up to four players. You must work together to save the world from a viral pandemic or die trying.
Monopoly. Even if you haven’t played Monopoly, there is almost no chance that you’ve never heard of it. Released almost a century ago, the classic board game experience is still a hit and a brilliant way to spend a few hours with some friends.
Battleship. One of the best options for portable board games, Battleship is a battle of strategy and chance between you and a friend. Will you sink their battleships first or succumb to a rain of metal and death.
The constantly increasing quality of laptops developed for work purposes means that it is no longer an outlandish idea to have a powerful system to play computer games that you can drag around with you. This is good news for you as it means you are able to bring some of your favorite entertainment experiences with you on a machine you would also bring for work. From your favorite MMORPG to an online casino, you have literally any computer gaming experience at your fingertips.
Nintendo’s incredible switch console has revolutionized the concept of handheld gaming consoles and brought portability to a previously somewhat immovable market. Suddenly, it is far more reasonable for you to consider bringing a mainline console with you on your travels, even if you are unlikely ever to have access to any kind of permanent television set up.
It is suddenly conceivable for you to bring a number of top-of-the-line video games traveling with you. Below are a handful of suggestions for the most travelable games on the switch:
Hades. Undeniably one of the best games released for the switch, Hades is a shining example of the rogue-like genre and an enjoyable romp through Greek mythology to boot.
Monster Hunter Rise. An exclusive release on the switch, Rise has barely been released and has already pushed the total number of copies sold in the series to over 70 million. The incredible game features spectacular combat against monstrous opponents and boasts an incredible visual experience.
The Legend of Zelda. The iconic series is almost as synonymous with Nintendo as Mario himself, and these games are undeniably worth the hype. Anyone would be an enjoyable addition to a traveling experience.
