Activity Spotlight – Benefits of Board Gaming

Ravenwood Castle is proud of our onsite board game library with over 150 games for you to play during your stay! You are of course welcome to bring your own games, but if you’re looking to save some room in your suitcase, don’t hesitate to swing by the office and check out the extensive Castle game library. You will find classic games such as Clue and Monopoly alongside modern classics like Catan and Ticket to Ride. We have dice games, card games, cooperative games, strategy games, and many more. We even have a giant wooden Crokinole board in the Pub to test your dexterity!

The benefits of board gaming are endless. While we at the Castle believe it is one of the best ways to unplug and reconnect with your friends and family, it can also have lasting impacts on kids and adults alike. Board games are entertaining and let us decompress from the stress of our everyday lives – they provide us with a way to escape for a few hours and go on adventures, save cities, or solve crimes. Alongside this, board games foster skills such as goal setting, strategy development, and creativity.

Another pro to board games is that they can be played anywhere. Disconnecting from the digital world and returning to a table to play with friends and family can foster stronger relationships. With that you won’t have to worry if the Wi-Fi is strong enough or the signal fast enough. Grab a game and enjoy worry free!

Whether you are gaming at the Castle on a weekend away from all the stress or staying at home and playing from your own game library, there is no debate that benefits of gaming are not in short supply!
