If we weren't in the middle of one pandemic, on this product we could let ourselves go to moralism. But now it's easy to see why the Infinity Game Table it is a success on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform.
What is Infinity Game Table? It is essentially a table equipped with an HD touch screen and robust connectivity. Nothing else? And it's not cheap! And in any case, even the software can make a difference in these cases.
And the developers (the company Arcade1up) have licensed a number of the most popular board games. Beetle, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Naval Battle, etc., for a total of over 50 games) and have them all programmed into the Infinity Game Table.
I would have killed, or given a kidney (from a random cousin of mine) for something like that.
Games in contact
As mentioned, on a conceptual level, board games offer simple and tactile family entertainment without the need for electricity and would not require technological updates. BUT. BUT.
However, the beauty of the Infinity Game Table is that the device obviously works in connection with the Internet. This means that in the era of social distancing, you can now play Scrabble (or whatever) with your family members scattered around the world.
It will not be easy, however, to end up in prison (and without passing away) the uncle who lives in Canada: he too should have an Infinity Game Table.
And the units, while they're selling like hot cakes, aren't exactly cheap. On Kickstarter the price for the pre-order is not less than 500 euros. This means that to play a cheerful game in Monopoli between 6 people living in different houses, you need 3000 euros on the nail. You said pork rinds.
