Celebrate Chinese New Year from comfort of your homes | Simple Life Simple Happiness
新年快乐! 万事如意! It’s the week of Chinese New Year and we’re sure you’re just as excited as us to spend it with our families and friends. But due to safety measures being put in place, Chinese New Year this year will definitely feel different this year. However, let’s not brood in our misery, but instead, make use of what we have! As the maximum number of people in a group allowed now is 8, Wheniwasfour would like to recommend a number of board games suitable for you and your friends to have fun while also munching on those delightful CNY goodies~
For the OG Basic Board Game Enthusiast: The Singaporean Dream
If you’re a fan of Singaporean-made games, you would have heard of The Singaporean Dream.

For the Kopitiam Fan: Kopi King
Teh or Kopi? Which drink would you like to make today? In Kopi King, you can learn not only how to make the various popular Kopitiam drinks that we all love with the ingredient cards included, but also test your knowledge of the challenging drink terms! Or maybe you’d like to upgrade your cup of teh into an atas (posh) cup of starbucks-grade milk tea? You can do that by challenging yourself with one of the epic-grade recipes in this game!

To Go All Out: LIMPEH SAYS
If your friend group is one that loves to tease one another, you’ll love LIMPEH SAYS. This game is played similarly to worldwide-loved game, Cards Against Humanity, just toned down and localised! With this game, you’re bound to not get a night’s sleep with how addictive it is and the amount of laughter it brings! Don’t complain if you get stomach cramps from laughing ah, LIMPEH warn you already horh~
For Our Dear Neighbours: The Lepak Game
Due to the situation unfortunately, our country’s borders have closed. And with that, many of our friends from neighbouring countries have chosen to sacrifice going back to remain in Singapore to work for their families back home. Which is why, many of them might not be able to fully enjoy Chinese New Year. So why not, invite them over with this Malaysian-made game, The Lepak Game! Get nostalgic with them as you bond over memories of their childhood and funny stories! You’ll discover that there’s more similarities between you two than you can imagine~
