The Stop Game
One of my favourite games of all time is STOP. This is a game where you race against friends and family to write down answers to categories (such as a name, animal, colour, food etc.) beginning with a random letter, the first to finish shouts STOP!!!
I remember playing STOP with my parents and brothers. My parents remember playing the same game when they were boyfriend and girlfriend, more than 30 years ago, and my mum is very proud to say that she always won!
So, during the lockdown, when there was a lot of free time, I decided to play STOP with my boyfriend Simon, and he loved it! We played with my family over Zoom, and it was hilarious to see the Spanglish answers that came out, as my family only speak Spanish and Simon only speaks English. Then we played with Simon’s family, and they enjoyed it too! It gives us an excellent way to have some fun and get our minds away from the four walls we were restricted to.
Because Simon enjoyed the game so much, and he has such a bright mind, he decided to share this fun but in a slightly different way, in his way: a web-based version.
After a few (many!) sleepless nights, he developed “The Stop Game!”. Basically, it’s a web-based version of the game where you can play against your friends and family in realtime. It requires the internet (but if you’re reading this you’re already on it) and works best on a mobile phone, but quite capable of working on a PC.
Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun!
