Comic Josh Gondelman and artist Molly Roth share a list of just a few of their favorite games that adults play. Seriously, call your mother.
TELEPHONE (YOUR PARENTS ONCE IN A WHILE)
Number of players: 2-5, depending on remarriages
Description of gameplay: One player (Offspring) reminds him/herself to call their parents. Points are awarded for every successful phone conversation. Leaving a voicemail message counts for half a point, as does listening to any voicemail from a parent that lasts over a minute.
Game ends when…: Let’s not talk about the end of this game. It’s too sad.
