This is such a challenging time for us and not being able to see friends and socialize is heartbreaking, and we are all of course desperate to get back to normal. One of the best ways that myself and my good friend Charles Wooten have found to make sure that we stay in touch and socialize is to play interactive game across the web. This started out as just us each playing when we had time, but now we have turned it into a weekly event where we play on our phones whilst on a call on the laptop, and it has become great fun. To anyone who is looking for a cool, interactive game to play with friends, here are some ideas.
Charles and I first began to play chess with one another, through the official chess application. This is a great way to play the game and we had a lot of fun trying to catch each other out on there. What we have now changed to is playing physical chess, on the call, and we each have our own board so that we can move the pieces, and then shout out the move to each other. This is a great game to play via this medium.
Scrabble is also a wonderful game to play interactively and their official app makes it super simple to play with people from all over the world. You can make friends on the app and then play against them, which is what Charles and I do. Alternatively however you can use the app to get some practice in and play strangers from all over the world.
In order not to upset anyone, depending on which side of the fence you fall, I shall include FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer here, and I shan’t say which Charles and I play. The point is that we love soccer and these games are the perfect way of playing against your friends. We like to have a call at the same time so that we can give our fair share of abuse and jokes at the action. If you both have the same console and game, this is a brilliant way to stay in touch with your friends and have some real fun as you do.
Charles and I were originally planning to play poker or another card game across the web, and then we discovered that we could play the brilliant game UNO, on the phone app. This is by far the most fun that we have had for some time, and the app is designed perfectly. I would say that this is the game which we are playing the most at the moment, and having a great deal of fun in the process.
