Neverboard is a free VR experience that lets you play several popular board and card games.

Board game night is making a comeback... in virtual reality. Evernever Games has announced Wednesday that they are bringing a social VR board game called Neverboard to Oculus Quest this fall.

Neverboard is the first free-to-play social VR board game that brings together friends and family on the Oculus Quest platform from wherever they are, whether they're all sitting in the same living room or in their separate homes. It combines the fun of classic tabletop board games like UNO and Monopoly with the immersion of virtual reality without the real-world hassle of setting up the games and cleaning up the room once you're done. If you take a look at the trailer below, the game looks like The Sims on acid.

Neverboard will launch with the full version of Crazy 8s readily available to download to your game library for free. Three easy-to-pick-up 2-4 player games will be available to buy for an undetermined price, with more titles on the way. In addition to playing games, you can explore concessions to share with your friends and family members in attendance, like pizza, soda, and even tomatoes.

Evernever Games is an alumni of the Oculus Launchpad program that built Neverboard from the ground up to spark real connections with the people closest to us in a delightful new way. Neverboard was created to provide a comfortable atmosphere in VR, serving as both a venue to host games and as a social space for up to four friends. Creator Jasmine Bulin said Neverboard is a great VR game for people to spend time together while apart, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are excited to see players finding the joy in being with others in VR during a time when being together while apart is more important than ever," said Neverboard creator Jasmine Bulin, “So many board games have this amazing power to enrich friendships and VR enhances the magic of the shared activity by allowing friends to play together anywhere and at any time. With Neverboard, friends around the globe can finally get game night back on the calendar.”

Neverboard is available to wishlist now, and will be supported on Oculus Quest and Quest 2. If you have any questions about what games will be released into Neverboard, you can join the game's Discord channel.
