The shut-in makes this primetime to play card games with Clover (age 8).
I thought of getting a few decks of Pokemon, or even MTG.
I don’t really want to collect cards, but having a few options for us to switch out is nice. Also, deck-building games are neat (I have Ascension, but it’s about fighting demons in the Void, not sure I want to cover that material now).
Anyhow, I thought about games like Arcmage (https://arcmage.org/), but that specific one is about forming armies and attacking cities, great fun for knowledgeable adults, but again not the material I want to cover now).
I also know of the Pokemon-ish clone with real animals, and the card design drives me insane so that’s a no go (though I could be convinced to just roll my own…).
This is a call to know what’s out there, so I can go look and see if I like it to play with the kid. So it would be nice to be able to buy distinct playable decks for low-investment, physical card gameplay.
