Games to Play at Home with Friends

If you’re bored and stuck at home and you’re looking for something exciting to do, here are three great games to play at home with friends. The beautiful part is that you don’t all have to be in the same place to play them!

Social Isolation

Being stuck inside can be tough. Whether you’re stuck all alone and missing your friends or you’re stuck with your friends it’s still a challenge.

Even if you’re not stuck, you may want to have a fun time with your friends but you don’t have any ideas for great games to play. It may even be that you need fresh ideas to keep things from being stale.

Here are three great games to play at home with friends whether or not you’re together. The best part is they don’t require anything other than a way to connect if you’re apart, like a smartphone or a computer. So fire up the FaceTime and get ready to have some fun.

Gestures with a Twist

In my last post Fun Things to do with Friends when You’re Bored, I shared one of the best games to play over a video call: charades. It’s a game everyone knows and it doesn’t require anything special.

But if you want to make it even more fun, here are a couple ways to change it up a bit.

One thing you can do is make the things you are acting out something about you. It could be something special in your life your friends know or something you all did together.

Another thing you can do is add some props. Find ways to incorporate one real world object into your charades. It could be a wooden spoon acting like a scepter, a pillow acting like a shield, or a blanket acting like a cape.

If you are looking for something a little less active and more artistic, there is another option.

There are more great games to play at home with friends, such as one made popular on the romantic comedy classic, When Harry Met Sally.

There are a lot of ways to play a game like Pictionary over a wire, whether it’s simply with a camera pointed at each other as you draw or using any of a number of online apps.

Whether you use some kind of white board or paper with an easel or you simply do it online, a great drawing game is a great way to connect. Perhaps, instead you would like to do something a little more head-to-head.

Against the Clock

Some games to play at home with friends may be more cooperative and some may be more competitive. If you’re looking for something to do that’s more competitive, try something where you’re racing against each other.

It could be a guessing game where everyone gets the same clues to see who can answer them first or it could be a recognition game to see who can identify objects first. A simple Google search can give you tons of options to find which best fits your personality and the personality of the group.
