There’s a weird virus threatening us all to sit at home and attend classes all day, leading to our backs aching like we’re grandparents already. Gone are the days when we went wild with a ball between us, be it in the form of cricket, tennis, volleyball or football. Gone are the mind-wracking minutes of those chess and carrom board games. Gone are the days…. Ah! Who asked for this sad nostalgic trip right now?

The gaming industry saw a 100 to 200% spike in its user base due to Covid-19 this year. This indeed comes as no surprise.  Our fingers have become the players now. From video games to our good old board games adapting to a new normal, the world has indeed shrunken to a screen.

We all have spent these days lying on our beds, eyes glued to screens, minds racing in the periphery of the universe, wishing, what if we could flaunt these gaming skills somewhere? There’s a satisfaction in winning a game against some unknown username sitting seven seas away, but no one recognizes this struggle?
