15th SEPTEMBER 2021 - Today, developer Evernever Games is pleased to announce that board game night is back in Neverboard, a social VR board game experience coming to Oculus Quest later this fall.


Neverboard combines the classic social fun of board games with the immersion of virtual reality, allowing friends and family to play a variety of board games together wherever they are. The game will launch with a full version of Crazy 8s for free plus three easy to pick up 2-4 player games to purchase, with more titles coming soon.


The first board game platform on Oculus Quest is so much more than just a reimagining of table-top play. Neverboard has been designed from the ground up to spark real connection in a delightful new way. The creation of Oculus Launchpad alumni Evernever Games, Neverboard provides a uniquely comfortable atmosphere in VR, serving as both a venue to host games as well as a social space for up to four friends. In addition to playing games, players can explore concessions to share, like pizzas to eat or tomatoes to toss. 


Never be bored again in Neverboard!

 
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," says 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 launch on Oculus Quest later this fall, with a range of free content, purchasable games and in-game currency for concessions.
