Asmodee releases free Print and Play boardgames for families to keep playing through lockdown

Asmodee has released a set of free downloadable board games as part of its new Print and Play initiative, allowing families without access to the physical games to be able to continue their love of gaming throughout lockdown.

The online portfolio of games available to download includes the likes of Dixit, Timeline Classic, and Dobble, the UK’s top-selling game.

Ideal for families to enjoy while staying at home, these titles comprise some of Asmodee’s best-loved games, with a variety of fun, education and strategy to suit all needs.

Hosted together at print-and-play.asmodee.fun and available in multiple languages, the initial six games are all modelled on popular lines, with some slight modifications made to some of the titles in order to simplify the at-home printing-and-playing process. More games are planned to be added in the coming weeks.

“In these difficult times due to the worldwide Covid-19 crisis, we at Asmodee are happy to offer families a way to play together from the comfort and safety of their home,” said Stephane Carville, CEO of the Asmodee Group.

“We hope that these free print-and-play games can offer some measure of relief, adventure and fun for everyone while staying safe at home.”

The full list of special-edition print-and-play board games on offer features Dobble – the UK’s number one-selling game, that challenges players to be the first to spot matching symbols on each card as the fast and frenzy gameplay ensues; Dixit – a wonderfully illustrated game of creativity and deduction for kids aged eight and upwards; and Timeline Classic in which players put major historical events, innovative inventions and discoveries from around the world into the right order.

The line up is completed with Unlock! – a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms that uses a simple system which allows you to search scenes, combine objects, and solve riddles; Cortex Challenge – a true test of players’ quick thinking and memory; and Combo Color – a vibrant strategy game for the whole family in which players explore and expand their territory by colouring in the boxes on the board.
