5 Games You Must Play with Friends When Tired of Playing Alone


There is nothing like the kind of bonding that can occur when you and your friends get together for a night of games. Especially these days when so many people are stuck at home, there’s no reason not to host an online game night with your quarantine buddies. To do this, all you need is a computer or mobile device and wifi. Plus, you can video conference with most of these games to help make it feel more like you’re in the same room. I personally love using Houseparty for quick and easy hangouts with my friends and family, but I’ve also heard great things about Zoom, Google Hangouts, Google Meetings (formerly known as Google Hangouts), FaceTime, Jitsi Meet, Discord…I’m sure there are others I’m forgetting. Just find something that works and get playing!


Werewolf, in case you haven’t heard of it, is a game of deduction and bluffing. It’s played by a group of players at night, all in the same location. The game is secret; only the players know what’s going on. Players are assigned roles randomly, and each role has special abilities that they can use during gameplay but must remain hidden from other players until the end of the game when werewolves are revealed (and then typically killed).

This game isn’t for everyone: some people love games with lots of trading cards or miniature figurines; others prefer more abstract thinking games like chess or checkers. If you’re looking for more games that feature aren’t quite so complicated to learn how to play, though—and if you have friends who’d enjoy playing together—this might be just what you need!

Cards Against Humanity

One of the most popular games among gamers, Cards Against Humanity has gained significant popularity in recent years. The game is one of the best party games that can be played with friends and family. It can be played by 3-10 players.

The main purpose of the game is to create a funny story or theme by making up some weird combinations between cards that are dealt out randomly at the beginning of every round.

This card game will require you to think outside of your comfort zone so that you can come up with something good enough to entertain others at your party!


Articulate! is a game that requires the players to describe words. It’s a great way to exercise your vocabulary, and it’s easy for anyone who’s had English classes in school. The only thing you need is a deck of cards, which can be found on Amazon or at any toy store that sells board games. You also need a timer—a good one will cost around $30 but they’re worth the investment because they’re loud and easy enough to use without having to look at them. This game is best played with 3-5 players but there are versions available for up to 8 people as well!

You start by shuffling the deck and placing it face down in front of each player (or computer). Then each player takes turns selecting cards from their pile and describing them as quickly as possible, trying not to say things like “it’s an apple” or “it’s red” because those aren’t specific enough for everyone else playing along at home (or on their phone). Once someone has made an incorrect guess about what item the card represents then everyone else gets another turn before moving onto whatever comes next: either picking up another card or moving onto round two where we’ll put our thinking caps back on again until someone guesses correctly again.”


Mafia is a game where you play as villagers trying to figure out who the mafia are. You have one or more meetings each day, in which people vote on who they think is a member of the mafia. Once someone has been voted off, they die and their role changes (e.g., if it was an innocent person and they were killed by someone else’s vote, that person becomes a new innocent villager). The goal for players is to eliminate all members of the mafia — but beware! If at least one person remains alive when all others have died (including themselves), then everyone else dies instead!


Pictionary is one of my favorite games to play with friends. There are many ways to play, but the general gist is that you have a turn describing a picture and then your teammate draws it. The first team to guess what was drawn wins!

The game can be played seriously or not so much depending on your mood and how competitive you feel like being. Some people choose to draw really hard pictures that are difficult for their teammates to recognize by only using simple shapes, while others draw silly things just for fun (like an elephant wearing sunglasses). It’s also very common for someone who is drawing an animal or person figure out how they want their partner’s image to look before they start drawing it themselves–this way, if someone else guesses correctly on their turn before yours ends up being over with yet, then at least there’s still hope for victory!

These games are fun and you should play them.

You should play these games. They’re fun, and you should play them with friends. Games are fun to play.

Games are great to play with friends when you are tired of playing alone, as well as when you have nothing better to do than hang out at home and be bored.


In conclusion, each of these games has one thing in common. They’re all very social, and better with friends than alone! I hope that you can use this list to find some new entertainment for you and your friends. Remember to have fun, enjoy the company of others, and maybe even make a little money on the side (if playing Werewolf or Mafia)!
