Looking for a relaxing game to play online with dad

Hi there,

My dad and I live on opposite sides of the country. He's not much of a gamer, but he does enjoy World of Tanks and Tiger Woods Golf. We typically go online 3-4 times per week to hang out, chat, and play games online. We like golf because it's easy going and accommodates conversation.

So, I'm looking for some suggestions of easy games that he and I can play together. WoT is a bit intense for him, so we play it in small bits. If Golf on Xbox One were better, we'd play only that, but it's pretty bad.

What games can you suggest for a senior who wants to hang out online with his son?

Thanks,

@katruje: I enjoy playing Pure Pool with my dad (who I also play golf games with). It's a pretty laid back game, giving lots of opportunities for chatting.

Sea of Thieves sounds perfect. It's fun, it's laidback and perfectly paced for a bit of family online gaming.

What about a pinball game? There's a few of them on the Xbox One. There is also a few of pool and snooker games as well. Card games?
