5 Fun Games To Play With Family During Quarantine


We all have to admit that we don’t like lockdowns and restrictions, but they are pretty necessary for the context of the ongoing pandemic. Fortunately, technology has its own ways of dealing with the pandemic, and they’re all very ingenious.

Paradoxically enough, getting quarantined brought many people together and made them live peacefully and in a more friendly way than before. Furthermore, their creativity and knowledge got stimulated more, resulting in finding interactive ways of enjoying moments together. We believe that playing the following five games will surely make your quarantine a lot more pleasant:

Heads Up!

Heads Up! is a guessing game launched by the American comedian Ellen DeGeneres. The app will start by displaying a word, a person has to hold the phone to his or her forehead, and the last step is to guess the word before the time runs out. One player has to guess the word by asking the other player questions. There’s even the option to record the game, as you’ll have the chance of seeing it again with your family.

Solitaire

Although Solitaire is a single-player card game, you can pass those cards to a friend or family member once you’ve finished your turn and see who scores more points. In Solitaire, the first objective is to play into position certain cards for building up foundations, in sequence and in a suit, through the king and from the ace. For the ultimate objective, you’ll have to build the entire pack onto the foundation to win the game.

Solitaire is also known to induce the player into a meditative and calm state of mind, releasing stress, anxiety, and negative thoughts. With so much bad news coming about the ongoing pandemic, pretty much everybody needs to have more positive behaviour. FreeCell, Klondike, and Spider Solitaire are the most popular versions of the game.

FIFA 21

FIFA 21 is EA SPORTS’ latest iteration of the most popular football simulation game series in the world. If both you and a relative are into such games, it’s always a good idea to compete against each other in friendly matches or even tournaments such as UEFA Champions League, Premier League, Bundesliga, and more. With 700 teams to choose from a lot of championships across the globe, the chances are huge that you won’t get bored while competing with your family in FIFA 21. You can play using the keyboard and the mouse while your brother will use a controller, for instance, or vice versa.

Codenames

Codenames is a new success when it comes to board games adaptations. The teams in Codenames have to guess which words belong to the opposing team. As soon as a person has the game, communication with the rest of the players becomes a lot easier.
Codenames is originally a 2015 card game designed for 4 to 8 players. Vlaada Chvátil created it, while the publisher is Czech Games Edition. The game starts when two teams compete by each of them having a ‘spymaster’.

Trivial Pursuit

You can play Trivial Pursuit over Zoom for many hours, as all you basically need is for one person to own the board. Training your general knowledge is one sure way of defeating boredom, and winning is determined by the player’s ability to accurately answer questions of popular culture and general knowledge.

Once the restrictions will be lifted and it will be safe to travel, playing augmented reality games such as Pokemon GO is a great idea. This game allows the player to roam throughout the real world as he searches for those cute little pocket monsters. That time of the pandemic’s end will surely come for all of us, as no pandemic can defeat the human need for interaction.
