During this time of recession, more British families are canceling their outside entertainment in favor of staying at home.

And their number one choice activity is board games, according to the latest survey by Tomy. 40% find them to be the best way to spend their time together, compared to 14% for video games.

Two thirds of 18 to 30 year-olds intend to spend more time with games and puzzles instead of going out.
