Veer Kashyap had gone to visit his grandparents in Bengaluru during the academic break and got stuck due to lockdown. To overcome the boredom, he decided to design a board game on his own when our Prime Minister announced first phase of lockdown. He understood the COVID-19 scenario through media and came up with a board game, which he named CORONA YUGA, meaning Corona Era. He designed the layout, drew infamous corona virus shape on a cardboard and accomplished using material available at home. He play tested his game several times with the help of his family member including great grandmother (aged 94 years) at home during lockdown.
