There's nothing to lose but a lot to gain in these days, so be it. Let's together fight this and make this period an interesting and entertaining one coz not very often do we get so much of time to spend with our family and also friends (even if it is virtually) 'so let's game and bond up?'.


Here is a list of Multiplayer online games that you can play from the comfort of your own homes. Have fun all you people and we hope you have a happy quarantine.


1. PSYCH


Psych is an exciting game that has gained a lot of popularity in recent times, given the current situation. There are high chances for the app to crash or slow down, coz of the unexpected traffic. In that case, we have a great substitute for this game (You would love it). Wait for it!


What about it?

Choose from a variety of fun categories in which each player makes up fake answers to real trivia questions. Can you choose the outrageous real answer among your friends’ fakes? Get points for guessing the right answer, and for each other player you PSYCH! into choosing yours.

"PSYCH!" is the perfect app for game night, road trips, or even waiting in line. So grab your phones, gather ‘round, and get ready for a gaming experience, unlike anything you’ve ever tried!

2. BANATE RAHO (Indian version of Psych and believe us, it is worth the try.)


Banate Raho is a fun desi social game you can play with friends from your home where you make up answers to funny questions or fool your friends with made-up answers to real facts. Basically it is Psych with a lot of 'desigiri'. The good thing about this app is that it doesn't slow down as psych because it is lesser-known.


What about it?

The app offers various interesting categories which are fun and situation-based, to all the desi mundas and desi girls which are super enjoyable. So are you ready to be bajaoyed by your friends or for that matter bajao your friends? ;P

3. EVIL APPLES


Evil Apple is a hilarious card game inspired by the popular party game, ‘Cards Against Humanity’. It's a fun game to play that might just end up into a riot of laughter. Well, that should be the point right? Enough of load on the little heads.


What about it?

A question card is shown to each player in the game to which every player selects an answer that best suits, from their hand. A judge amongst you selects the best card and awards 1 point to the victor. The 1st player to reach 7 points win the game.

6. WEREWOLF ONLINE (MAFIA)


Werewolf is nothing but Mafia which is one of the most classic and popular games played all over the world. While it takes time to understand the game and the roles in the app, once understood the game is truly enjoyable.

However, the game has a few drawbacks. The game requires a total of 16 players compulsory. Either you choose to play with strangers or make a group of your own. If your group has lesser than 16 people to play, the app automatically adds new members making the total,16.


What about it?

Defend your village from the forces of evil or become a werewolf and hunt your friends.

Join the mystery game, fight for your team and find the liars amongst your clan. Beware of a lot of manipulations and diplomacy. :P

7. WORDS WITH FRIENDS 2


For all those who eats and breathes vocabulary, this game is the thing you shouldn't miss out on. So go on, test your brain power and spell your way to victory. It's going to be fun.


What about it?

Challenge your family/friend as you scrabble to create words made out of the letters that are issued to you. Believe us, it is a great brain work out. Come on, let's be honest, there are only a few words we know to fit in the letter X. Don't you just hate when you draw that letter in scrabble?

Do you enjoy playing Pictionary? Well, you're going to enjoy this game then. All you got to do is draw, guess and earn victory points. While the game sounds easy peasy, it really isn't that much. So get your artistic brains to work and of course your smart caps on and you're going to enjoy this game. Promise!


What about it?

If you're somebody who has a bigger family/squad, this app is quite literally made for you. If not, you can just join in with some amazing people who are already playing.

The app allows you to create your own group and add up to 50 people. Wow! Now that's going to be insanely fun, especially when you know, most of them quite literally suck at drawing. And imagine the number of jokes and elaborative conversations you're going to have, post that. Would go on for a year or 2? Haha!
