In today’s world of Internet of Things, I will not be surprised if humans are able to connect their brains to a device which will then make them think logically. But before this evolution takes place, we can try secure ways to train our brains. And this mental exercise is so much fun if one has to play mind-blowing Board Games with friends and family.
Creeda is the only Café in Mumbai which is dedicated to Board Games and I really appreciate the owner’s idea of ‘Bonding over Board Games’. Creeda offers world’s best Board Games which gives a unique experience. The collection of more than 250 Board Games at Creeda is amazeballs. While Creeda welcomes all age groups, I think it is a great place for children and teenagers. And the best thing is that it is creating a community of gamers where people connect and bond over Board Games.
If you are a beginner, then you could try ‘Cluedo’, a murder mystery game which also helps sharpen direction and memory skills. Party games like ‘Anomia’ which leaves one with a face-off with the other player and one has to rub his brain cells to blurt out the correct answer first. Strategy games like ‘Ticket to Ride’ wherein one has to make rail routes to reach the destination. As other players don’t know your destination, they may just block your route while trying to reach theirs. That’s so much like real life. Other games like ‘Black Friday’, a stock market themed game and luck based games are worth a try. The staff at Creeda is just too good at suggesting games and explaining rules.
These Board Games teach a lot and exposes one to intellect, competition, interaction, time and resource management skills and a lot more.
When I asked Riddhi (owner of Café), what does Creeda mean to her? She says that playing games is her passion which she has converted to business. And I wonder, shouldn’t each one of us do that? It sounds fascinating to be paid for something one loves to do. At times one has to pause, think and take ‘that’ plunge which makes life more meaningful.
