7 of the Best Board Games to Play Online With Friends
Did you know you can host a game night without having even one guest attend in person!? Thanks to technology we can stay connected no matter the distance. You can play virtual board games over FaceTime, Zoom, or other similar virtual hangout platforms. Here are just 7 games you can try for your next virtual game night…
Big Boggle Board Game
This is one I think I would really enjoy. It is a twist on regular boggle with longer words to find, which of course means higher scores! You can grab it on Amazon for $17.94 right now. Only one person has to own the game for you to play online with others. The game owner can easily display the grid for everyone else to see.
Say Anything Board Game
In the hilarious game Say Anything, players take turns reading questions out loud, and the other players respond by writing the funniest answer they can think of. Everyone guesses which response the question-reader will like best, and whoever guesses correctly gets points. You can play virtually by having everyone write responses on paper and display those responses to the group.
Loaded Questions Board Game
You can grab different versions of Loaded Questions. Some are kid-friendly and some are best for just adults. Players take turns asking questions, which the other players all answer individually. To play virtually, all players can text their response to the question-asker, who will then read them out loud. Then, players must try to match the responses to the people who wrote them.
Jackbox Party Pack Games
Jackbox Party Pack Games are available on several platforms (including Steam, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV) and are sold in party packs or as individual games. Amazon has several Party Packs to choose from for only $24.99. Each party pack comes with five multiplayer games that players can join on their own devices. To play virtually, only one player has to download a party pack and share their screen with the other players, either by setting up a video conference or using a live-streaming site. Everyone will go to jackbox.tv, enter the room code and let the party begin.
Ticket to Ride Board Game
Ticket to Ride can still be played virtually by using the app. The family-friendly app costs $6.99 to download, and once all players download, you’ll compete to link up your cities and reach your destinations on your own devices. This one is easy to play and games are never the same, so you and your friends can play it over and over again.
Taboo Board Game
Divide your Zoom party into two teams, take turns sharing screens, and choose someone each round to be clue-giver. This person will help their team guess the main word using one word at a time or by picking two words total from the list. Just make sure you don’t say anything over Zoom except the words on your list! Amazon currently has this game on sale for $14.92.
Pictionary Board Game
The classic party game, Pictionary is perfect for a long-distance dinner party or night online with friends. With Zoom’s whiteboard feature, you can play virtually or you could play separately and hold up your drawings for the other team.
