Are there any hobbies you've picked up because of board games? Maybe you played a game based on, oh...say, making a patchwork quilt, and then you got hooked on doing it IRL?
For me, it's birding, and it's all thanks to #Wingspan. I live in a great area for birding, in which I hardly have to leave my house to find cool birds. I'm learning all kinds of neat things about them, and I'm using this to also brush up on my photography.
So what about you? Any hobbies emerge in your life thanks to board games?
