5 Tips for Playing the Boom Again Games for the Boom Generation
Boom Again is a pop-culture board game that creates a social atmosphere. It generates a competitive and exciting moment for older players to reminisce about their teenage years while trying to win against their opponent.
Unlike multiple-choice questions, Boom Again is a trivia game that challenges the mind and attention to details of events in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. For you to gain mastery over this board game, you need to learn the tips that will help you and your Boomer team members win every time.
1.Play often with friends who like trivia
The truth is not every Boom generation likes trivia questions. If you love to play Boom Again, you should look for friends or any member of your family that loves to play similar games with you.
If you own a Boom Again board game, do not be shy to take it with you on a trip out to some place of relaxation. Who knows? You might find a Baby Boomer who wants to play with you.
Furthermore, Boom Again allows you to either play individually or as a team. If you want to enjoy many benefits from this board game, then you should get a team to play with you. Now, you want to make sure that members of your team know of events in the 50s, through to the 70s.
Events that cover TV shows, politics, people, history, movies, and so on. This will help you when answering tricky questions that you cannot answer on your own. For example, you might be required to remember classic music from the mid-60s, and you’re confident your team members will figure out the answer.
2.Travel back in time
No, you don’t have to break this (or any other) dimension to reach across the 50s or 70s, but you must consider the age group of teammates that you’re playing with. Why consider this factor? Because a Boomer is more likely to know about the Grenada invasion than a Millennial.
To have a perfect team for the game, consider having a broad range of demographics as this will go a long way. Try mixing up young and olds if you can.
To have a friendly experience when playing, it is crucial that you team up with people that you like to have around you. If you do not intend to meet them in a hallway at 3 a.m., then don’t invite them over to play Boom Again with you. In other words, only play with people that you share the same interest in. As stated earlier, not every Boomer generation will like to play the game with you. So, regardless of how much they know about the Boom era, try to keep the trivia fun, not making it feel like a chore.
3.Study the Boom era
Before playing Boom Again with friends and family, take out time to study notable events during this period. The internet is packed with information that could point you to events that took place at that time. From the trending fashion in the 50s to popular TV shows in the mid-70s. Make sure you equip yourself before playing the game.
4.Have temper Management Protocols
Although Boom Again was designed to bring fun, trivia games could get intense to the point of physical combat, especially when there is a disagreement between members of a team or the judge’s verdict about an answer. If, for instance, your team is not willing to record an answer that you’re sure is correct, you can make a side deal that they owe you a bottle of soda if your answer turns out to be correct.
Rather than get huffy, always ready to throw punches when your answer is overruled, engage your teammates in a deal that makes them trust your guts next time.
5.Practice with your team
Keep practicing as a team until everyone feels comfortable about the suggestion of each team member. If any of the members learn about a fact or slang from the Boom era, they should be able to share it with the team. Everyone experiences a moment or two of having a blank head when a question is popped suddenly.
When your teammates share equal knowledge, it will be easier to win against a team with few trivia masters.
Playing the Boom Again trivia game becomes more interesting when you follow the tips highlighted above. You can be sure to win each time when you work on playing as friendly Boom generation team members than when you play individually.
