This is Amity, the board game console designed to provide a fun shared experience between players and their loved ones. The board uses physical playing pieces and integrated video calling to provide meaningful engagement despite any distance.
Data shows that almost a quarter of adults over the age of 65 are considered to be socially isolated. Social isolation is associated with a 50% increased risk of dementia and other serious medical conditions.
Even though the players may be far apart, Amity brings people together over the shared experience of a friendly game.
