Games You Can Zoom!

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 to inject some much needed frivolity into the next happy hour with your crew, look no further!  We’ve got you covered with easy, crowd-pleasing games the whole group can play with minimal setup and maxim fun. All you need is a video hosting platform (such as Zoom), pen, paper, 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. You can up the ante and make it quarantine specific. 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. 

Trivia Time! 

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 gameboard, or cards required! Random word generators make this game easy to adapt for your next family celebration. When you use these random word generators (herehere and here) you can make the game as easy or as hard as you want. Who’s ready to draw “discovery?” Not sure how to break up into teams? Try pairing up oldest to youngest, birthday months, or geographic location.  

Would You Rather? 

A super fun way to really get to know your friends or perhaps reacquaint yourself with that roomie from six years ago. 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. Come up with your own questions or tap into the genius of randomly generated questions here.
