Easter is a Christian holiday that is supposed to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The traditional and expected method of seizing this public holiday is to catch up with family and friends while bloating yourself on chocolate and homemade food. And then there are those that like to sleep in, defy obligation and hide away from the world as an apathetic recluse.
If you intend to stay home this Easter have you thought about the kinds of excuses you can sling at people? Maybe you need to find something to do? The following list is but a mere suggestion. May it aid you in your quest for serenity.
A boardgame? Really? Yes, even though Eldritch Horror is designed to be played with two or more players you can technically play this one on your own (I did when I was home sick one time). As the game is card-driven you will find the hours slipping away as you race around the world to defeat the Old Ones.
Make a boardgame
So you don't own Eldritch Horror and you cannot be bothered leaving the house? Well, why don't you invent your own tabletop adventure? Use whatever junk you can scavenge around the house and let your imagination turn cereal boxes into multi-storey buildings and salt shakers into Daleks.
Local area network party
Maybe you are kind enough to let some special friends pop over for a video game session. These days most computer games require an internet connection just to load up. Why I remember a long time ago (decade-and-a-half ago) a bunch of people would link their computers to a hub/router via cables to join multiplayer sessions and frag away until they either crashed where they sat or kept going until the next day. Why not organise a LAN party?
Stare at your phone
Smartphones are all the rage. The processors and the graphic capabilities are phenomenal—so much power in the palm of your hand. Why not become the ultimate anti-socialite and download some addictive applications like Star Wars: Assault Team and Spaceteam … oh yeah, you need friends to play Spaceteam properly. Did you invite any friends over?
Go for a walk
The house is compromised? People know to look out for your car or there are spies that know that you decided to stay behind closed doors? Fool them all and explore your own neighbourhood. Find a local park and enjoy the wonders of the outdoors. Who knows: you might actually have some fun. Alternatively, you could always spend a day at the cinema. One of the safest places to hide (unless you know people who work there). I hear the new Captain America is pretty good.
