It was the news story of the week. The Ever Given container ship got stuck in the Suez Canal near the Egyptian city of Suez on its way from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean.

We totally get it. You see your friends’ indoor jungles and you go green with envy. So you pop down the plant shop, buy a load of parlour palms, only for them to die within days of getting them home.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Oh, no. Because, here at Bubblegum Stuff, we’ve put together a list of card games for 2 or more players that are a sure-fire way of passing the time. We’ve got celebrity quizzes, a name the animal quiz and even an educational game. These are funny games to play with your mates over a Zoom call that take less time to learn than a Tik Tok dance.

(Something that wasn’t easy, considering there were a couple of lockdown birthdays at Bubblegum Stuff!)
