Hey guys! This week, I am going to be talking about a bunch of different online board games that you can play with friends! My whole friend group is split up, and we do not get to hang out in person very often. So, we have been trying to find ways to use Google Hangout and also the vastness of the internet to hang out and play games together. We have had to look and find things that will be fun for everyone, and not just fun for one person. Also, the games have to be playable by everyone using on link, because none of us are in the same room as one another. Here are some of the games we have played, in no particular order.
This game is a very odd take on a regular board game. It has lots of really nerdy references, but it can also get kind of dirty at the same time. We have just started playing this a lot recently, and it has definitely become a group favorite. There is a whole thing with using items, and trying to kill other people so they do not win. It is definitely one of my favorite online games I have played with my friends. If you are looking for something weird to play, this is definitely it. It is also free to play, which makes it even better.
Everyone enjoys Cards Against Humanity, and this online version is pretty great. There are a lot of cards you can add in, so you are not getting the same old boring ones like you do when you play it with someone’s actually set of cards. This game can get really comical, and it is really fun to see who picked what. It is also easy to understand and play for anyone who you want to join you. All in all, a great free game.
Now, this is one that took us a little bit to figure out how to make it work with many people. How you are supposed to play these games is you are all in the same room, and you have it on the TV, so everyone can see what is going on. What we have been doing is setting up a google hangout, and having one person’s screen be where the game is, so that everyone can see what they need to do, and then you play on your own separate device. These games are very fun for a while, but if you play them to much, that get a little overdone. Also, they are not cheap to purchase either, but it is only a one-time purchase, which is nice. If you are looking for a new game to play at home or online, these games are great.
If you love cribbage as much as my friends and I do, you will definitely love this. It is a downloadable cribbage game that you can play with friends, or anyone online. There are also a lot of various game modes that you can play, so you can play with more than just 2 people. I have had a lot of fun with this, even though it is a pretty old looking game. My friends and I are very competitive when it comes to cribbage, so we always end up playing at least 3 games any time we play it. Give this a try if you love a free online cribbage game!
You wouldn’t think battleship would be fun online, but my friends and I are super competitive. It is only a 2 player game, but sometimes there are only 2 of us in the hangout, and we need to kill some time before everyone else comes on. I love old fashion board games(except Monopoly), so this one really hits home for me. It is just fun that you can play it, even if you are not in the same room. It is a really great time waster for people that like playing games.
We have also invented our own drinking game that we can play on google hangout, so that has been really fun. Since everyone has a deck of cards in their house, we made a game that is based on higher or lower drinking games, where everyone has their own hand. It is very fun, and you can definitely get pretty drunk if you play it write. Sometimes, you need to play a good drinking game with your friends, and have a fun time doing it.
Those are all the games that we have been playing a lot with each other! There are not many board game style online games to play, where everyone is on separate devices. If anyone knows of any other board game style online games that do not require purchasing, please let me know in the comments below, so I can bring it up to my friend group. It can get boring playing the same few games, but we all want to do something instead of just sitting and staring at each other. I hope this has helped some of you out there who have long distance friends and need something to do while on long video chats. I hope you had a great week, and I will hopefully see you here next Sunday!
