Here are the very best online games to play with friends
In the quarantine life, it’s hard to be social. FaceTimeing your friends is always an option, but it gets boring when all you do is talk about the same five things in each call. You need to spice up your social life without going outside. So why not online games?
So as usual, we turn to the Internet for help. Sure, watching movies with your friends is fun, but when you’re constantly arguing over what movie to watch, it stops being fun. Mix it up! Play a game or two with your friends instead?
These websites and apps offer a variety of interactive multiplayer games to play, and are all $10 or under. You can have fun on a budget in quarantine, without driving yourself and your friends insane. Play some online games for a change!
Sure, the fact that the game where capitalism is the enemy was initially made by Disney takes away from the message. But just pretend that Toontown Rewritten just uses Disney characters and has nothing to do with Disney. Attack Cogs with gags, go fishing, collect Doodles as pets, and make the perfect home with your friends!
The Game of Life
Available on both mobile app stores and Steam, the classic board game comes to life with some new twists. With interactive animations for life events, mini games to help boost your cash total, and plenty of ways to beat your friends, The Game of Life is a lot more realistic now.
You can literally buy Minecraft to play on your Amazon Fire Stick with friends. That’s how versatile this game has become. Sure, it’s not under $10 on every platform, but you have a copy hidden somewhere that you were ashamed of. Stop being ashamed, and get your friends together to build a farm.
Jackbox Party Packs
Again, this may not be under $10 but the older games go on sale for under $10 quite often across different platforms. The interactive party game franchise is one of the most used right now thanks to the quarantine, so you probably already know about this. Heck, your rich friend probably already has all six packs plus Drawful 2.
If your school or work has swapped over to the remote video chat service, we have a way to make you not dread logging on. Using Zoom’s whiteboard feature, you can play Pictionary with friends, coming up with prompts and drawing them out on the digital whiteboard.
We put UNO in the last article, so we might as well put the game that actually leads you to commit murder your friends. With mobile, desktop, and online versions available through a number of services and websites, you can fight your friends over the railroads from the comfort of your own bed.
