The Best Online Games to Play with Friends

The lockdown caused by COVID-19 has forced us to be creative when it comes to going out with friends. But don't worry, there are plenty of games you can play with friends online. From classic board games to trivia and escape rooms, there's something for everyone. Fortnite, Words with Friends 2, Scrabble GO, Uno & Friends and Draw Something are great options for simple games that allow you to stay in touch and sneak in when you have time throughout the day.

Take turns drawing while the rest guess what your friend's terrible work of art is about in the side chat. Plato chat app is a great option for those looking for classic multiplayer games. The collection of more than 30 games includes UNO, Battleship, Ludo and a bunch of popular card games. You can have up to 100 friends playing and chatting, perfect for a game night with family or classmates.

Beat The Lock is an excellent option for people looking to enjoy an escape room in a completely virtual way. You book a single virtual room with capacity for 4 to 12 people, and play on Zoom with a game master who is there to interact with the group and improve the experience. Online bingo is another fun way to have and enjoy a game night with friends using Zoom. You can play online bingo with up to 30 friends and, if you want to add even more players, you can buy additional slots.

Sword & Sorcery is a fantastic battle between good and evil that you can play together online for free. With multiple scenarios available for free and additional premium options, you'll never run out of things to do. The game Trickster Trivia is an excellent option if you're looking for something different. The objective of the game is to trick your friends into choosing a false answer to real trivia questions.

If you guess the correct answer, you get a point. If you make a friend guess that your made-up answer is correct, you get a point. Drawful 2 is like a ridiculous online version of Pictionary, where your friends try to guess your best or worst sketches. Finally, Erb is an excellent option if you're looking for something more strategic.

It's a very strategic version of Russian roulette “with kittens”, in which players draw cards to the point where someone ends up with an exploding kitten. Cartoon graphics appeal to players of all ages, “but keep in mind that you use weapons to shoot other players in the game” adds Erb. So don't worry if you can't go out with your friends during this pandemic - there are plenty of online games that will keep you entertained!.
