Staying away from your loved ones and maintaining social distance during these uncertain times can be difficult. However, today’s innovations make it easy to stay in touch—and now is a great time to try hosting a virtual game night to keep your relationships going strong!
Host a Virtual Game Night to Stay Together
Try holding a virtual game night while you’re stuck at home! It’s a great way to keep everyone entertained (whether you’re together or apart), and it’s also really simple. Here’s how you can host your very own virtual game night with just your smart phone.
Step 1: Decide what you’re going to play
There are plenty of ways to host a virtual game night—and all it takes is a phone app! There are plenty of online games to choose from on both the App Store and the Google Store. You can go for a classic feel with games like Uno, Monopoly, or Apples to Apples, or you can browse through other online games to see what everyone would enjoy.
You can also narrow your search by deciding on a type of game to play together, like a card game, a board game, or even a tabletop role-playing game. There are tons of options, so this step will probably take the most time.
Step 2: Download the app and check it out
There’s an almost overwhelming number of apps on any mobile app store. You’ll probably want to download a few to see what you think is best. Typically, the app will have a way to invite friends, and you can send a link to your game in one big group chat.
Step 3: Enjoy the game!
Once you’ve gotten everyone into the app, it’s easy: play the game! If you want to feel even closer, try having a phone call or video chat going on in the background so everyone can participate. If you can’t get a phone call working, it’s ok! Most games also have a chat feature for you to type quick messages or send emojis. Either way, you’ll start to feel better after having a fun game night with everyone.
