With summer already in full swing, it is time to relax and catch up with friends and family. What better way to spend those lazy weekend afternoons than playing board games, evoking memories of those long summer holidays from school?
Now, however, you can add a little variation to your board game sessions by customising your favourite with cool graphics, messages or caricatures of your friends.
Alternatively, try being a little adventurous by playing ancient Indian board games like chaupar (if you know your Hindu mythology, you may remember it as the game from the Mahabharata in which the Pandavas lost to the Kauravas) created by craftsmen from Kutch.
