If you've never had a chance to take part in an escape room adventure, you don't know what you're missing. Together with a group of friends, you work cooperatively to solve a series of puzzles -- usually to escape the room in an hour or less. They come in every conceivable flavor, from sci-fi to mystery to horror, and everything in between. But now's not a good time to be playing a game in a public facility in which lots of people need to touch literally everything, over and over again. So as you and your family hunker down in self-quarantine, how would you like to try an escape room you can play at home? Right now, Kosmos Games is having a sale on a slew of its play-at-home escape games. They're usually no more than $20, and many games are now between 10% and 30% off.

Kosmos has a baker's dozen games, about half of which are currently on sale. Browse them all, or check out these in particular.
