For those of us who love game nights with friends, it can be difficult when you're stuck at home or have a lot of long-distance friendships. Dominion is a deck-building card game that can be played with around 3 to 5 players.

The Vent App
If you're feeling upset or socially isolated, it can really take a toll on your mental health on a day-to-day basis. Through the Vent app, users can post their struggles anonymously, whether they are struggling with anxiety, depression, or anything else. Then, you can also anonymously comment on the posts others create. Vent allows people to share their insecurities and seek help without the nervousness of having people you know seeing what you're going through. Completely judgment free!
