In my previous blog, I spoke about a few ideas on how you can spend your free time, productively while social distancing. But there are times you want to connect with friends and family who live in different parts of the world. Of course, we can video call and chill but here’s how you can make it fun and distract yourself from the current affairs. ONLINE GAMING!!

Never thought-playing games Online would be just as fun as playing it Offline. So here are a few games that I’ve recently discovered and love playing Online with my clan!
