Everyone’s Zooming these days. With coronavirus stay-at-home orders in place, many of us have turned to virtual socializing, and Zoom’s become the go-to platform. While it’s wonderful that we live in a time that where it’s easy to stay connected, let’s be real: There are only so many things you can casually chat about when no one’s left their home in months. That’s where Zoom games come into play. These games will add some welcome joy and laughter to your next Zoom hang session (or other video calling platform of choice). Here are the ones we’ve loved so far.
Remember Pictionary from your childhood days? It’s one of those super simple games that never gets old. Now, you can play it online with this random word generator. Sure to bring easy laughs and good times to all.
Charades is another game that appeals to Zoomers of all ages. With this Charades game generator, you can get ideas for words and phrases to play through your screen. It’s one of the best Zoom games because of how easy it is.
Head to this free game generator, share the link with your fellow Zoomers and get ready for an online version of the all-time favorite party game: Scattergories. If you need a refresher on the rules, here’s a summary — a round starts with a letter and five categories. All you’ll need to do is pick words that start with the letter and apply to each category. You’ve got 60 seconds to come up with the funniest words you can think of, and whoever offers the most out-of-the-box answer will get the most points.
If you’ve been missing trivia nights, here’s how to get your virtual fix. This random trivia generator provides questions on a variety of topics including history, entertainment and the arts. To keep everyone honest, ask participants to type their answers into the Zoom chat bar and send it in at the same time.
We’ve previously touted Cards Against Humanity as a failproof apartment game choice. Now, you can play virtually with PlayingCards.io’s Remote Sensitivity game. Just be forewarned — the game can get a little awkward. If you’re Zooming with grandma, it may be best to try something a little more “family-friendly.”
