With the introduction of all of our computer technology, it is a wonder that people still play board games. If you want to get your boyfriend a gift for Christmas that is not only fun, but can also build relationships and friendships, perhaps a board game is a good idea. Video games, and different game apps on our smart phones, usually are played by ourselves when we are not in the company of other people. But these games are fun and addictive, so we can literally spend hours tapping our phones with our finger without having any desire to talk to another live human being. What board games accomplish is that it brings people together face to face, and allows them to interact with each other and grow their friendships and relationships, as normal human beings should do. They are actually quite fun, especially if you engage in games like Settlers of Catan, or old classics like Monopoly and Risk. If you and your boyfriend start getting into board games, you’ll have a lot more face-to-face time with each other, which can really help to build your relationship in the long term.
