While social distancing has kept us from our usual in-person get-togethers, it’s also true we’re connecting online in record numbers. If you’re looking for new ways to entertain when you get together with your friends, we’ve got you covered with a list of easy, crowd-pleasing Zoom games to play. The whole group can join in and there’s minimal setup, all you need is a video hosting platform (such as Zoom), pens, a notebook (our dot grid is a great choice), and good spirits!
Two Truths And A Lie
The classic ice breaker game where you share two truths and one lie about yourself, then friends have to separate fact from fiction. Have your friends figure out whether or not you actually read the chapter for your book club this week or if you’ve really played 8 straight hours of Animal Crossing in one sitting!
Weekly pub trivia doesn’t have to be put on hold, not with so many online options. If you’ve got a large group you can break up into teams based on your ideal pet (dog, cat, pig?) or pit household against household. Elect one person to be Trivia Master to ask the questions and dole out the answers. Find random trivia here or more specific quizzes such as “One Hit Wonders of the ‘80s and ‘90s”.
Team up for the virtual version of Pictionary, no game board, or cards required! Random word generators make this game easy to adapt for your next family celebration. When you use a random word generators (here) you can make the game as easy or as hard as you want. Not sure how to break up into teams? Try pairing up oldest to youngest, birthday months, or geographic location. Don't forget to pick up a sketchbook or blank journal for all your drawings!
Would You Rather?
A new way to get to know your friends, or perhaps reacquaint yourself with a friend you lost touch with. The premise of this game is pairing two alternatives that are equally horrible, or amazing, so much so that it’s equally hard to choose which one you’d rather experience. Come up with your own questions or tap into the genius of randomly generated questions here.
Gather all your friends and family, make a party snack, and have fun!
