On the weekends, my friends and I get together online (we use Discord, but you can also use Zoom or Google Video). Here are our two favorite free online games to play as a group:
We usually start our game nights with skribbl.io, a simple, but fun drawing game (reminiscent of early 2000 online games). Have one person click “create a private room” to get the URL link to share with the group. One of our house rules is to avoid writing words and letters, except for logos.
Then we venture off to more challenging games, like this online version of Codenames. This version is 100% free and was created by a friend! If you like team based, strategic word games, I think you’d like Codenames.
