Cards are an easy way to stay entertained for hours! Plus, if you're traveling alone maybe that unknown person beside you won't be a stranger anymore. If they don't want to remove their headphones then you can entertain yourself with single player card games. Rather you're alone or with someone there are multiple games to enjoy!

You might not be able to watch DVDs on your laptops in cabin (due to the electronics ban) but you can uses cases to create an upcycled gameboard. Also, DVD cases won't occupy as much space or weight in your onboard luggage as laptops would.
