One of the best ways to reconnect with family is having an at-home game night. The evening can consist of your favorite games, snack food, and a nice break from reality. It’s a time to bond (virtually) with extended family and close friends.
Whether you’re able to (safely) visit your family this holiday or are celebrating virtually this year, new and old-school games always make for an entertaining activity. From kid-friendly board games like Candy Land and The Game of Life to Kourt’s go-to right now, Othello, and an adults-only option like Cards Against Humanity, there are plenty of ways to make memories while staying home this holiday season. If you’re tuning in to the family time via Zoom or FaceTime, we included a selection of games that will still trigger your playfully competitive side. Add these options to your entertainment drawer (or phone).
We’ll start with virtual games to amuse the whole family.
Scattergories: Pick a letter and five categories, and each player has 60 seconds to submit a word that fits each category. You can download the free version here.
Heads Up!: Download the app on your phone and play via Skype or Zoom. If you haven’t played already, it’s a blast and so funny to rewatch each round.
