First things, first. Pick a day and time and get everyone in the group invited.


Just because we can’t all be together for game night; doesn’t mean you have to skimp on the snacks. Whip up your favorite recipe and enjoy!


Choose the best video chat app. Some of the most popular are Zoom , Google Hangout, FaceTime, Houseparty and Skype.


There are lots of games to choose from. Here are just few:

Heads Up! On Houseparty

The game made famous on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Heads Up is a game where one person races against the clock to guess a hidden word based on clues their friends give. This game can be found to be played with family and friends at home and now you can now play the game in the Houseparty app for free with up to eight friends.

Drawful 2

If you love Pictionary, check out Drawful 2. Players will illustrate something fun, then your friends and family will type in what they think the drawing is, and those will become the multiple-choice wrong answers. Then everyone, and whoever else is online worldwide, will try to guess the answer.

Classic Board Games

Throw it back and choose one of the classics. You can find options online like Monopoly, Clue, Battleship, The Game of Life, and Scattergories.

Classic Games

Playing Cards offers some simple games to play. The website lets you create a room for your game night. Games that can be played include checkers, go fish, crazy eights, and any other card game using a standard 52-card deck.


Miss going to your favorite trivia night? QuizUp can help while you’re social distancing. It’s a virtual trivia app where you can play against your friends in real time.
