这re will probably come a time in everyone’s life where they are separated from friends and families.
Thankfully, we live in a day and time where there is a lot of technology that makes it easier to connect with people.
I started thinking about different games you could play with people over FaceTime or Skype or whatever video chatting service you want, and there’s really a lot of fun ones.
Below is a list of the ones I came up with – some are just ones where you will sign in and start playing, others are board games, and others are digital games. But I think there’s a nice variety that would be fun for various ages.
这re are websites where you can play board games virtually – Tabletopia and Table Top Simulator are a couple – but I tried to focus on options where you can just get on your video chatting serving and get to play!

Which Group Video Chat Service Should I Use?
这re are a lot of services out there that you allow you to group video chat with others, however, the main ones to consider are:
这些都有他们的优缺点 - 例如，有了一面，你将仅限于拥有苹果设备的人。你最多可以拥有32人。
I find that Google Hangouts is a little glitchy and slow, especially the more people you have. However, it has the highest limit for a free chat at 150 people.
Skype在自由计划上有很多巨大的功能 - 它可以拥有多达50人。人们说它具有比缩放更好的呼叫质量，但它往往更加剧烈。
这S.e are games that you can do without a lot of materials. Just login and play!
Most of these are pretty common games that you probably know how to play – but if it’s one that I feel needs explaining, I’ll share more details. If you don’t understand how a game is played, just let me know, and I’ll write specific instructions for it.
Going on a Picnic
This is a pretty common road trip game that my family loves! You start by saying, “I’m going on a picnic, and I’m going to bring a …” and you name something that starts with the letter “A”. Then the next person goes, “I’m going on a picnic, and I’m bringing…” and they say what the previous person said, and then something that starts with B.
And so on and so forth – it’s really fun and gets tricky the more items you have!
It is trickier to play online, and the way I figured out how to play would require cell phones or private messaging of some type – so better for older groups.
You go around and everyone gets a turn to guess who picked what name (you get one guess per turn). If you guess someone correctly, they are on your team. The goal is to get everyone on your team.
Add a Letter
这first player says any letter of the alphabet. The next participant adds a letter (at the beginning or end of the letter) to make a new word. You go until someone can’t come up with a word.
To make it more fun, you can allow people to try and make up words and see if anyone notices.
This is definitely not the name of this one, but it’s a game that some of the young women at church have played a few times at activities, and it’s super fun.
有人离开了房间（或者在播放它的情况下，把他们的电脑转向静音），而且剩下的球员们提出主题 - 例如，你可以做“以字母S开头的单词”。
这person who turned their computer on mute turns the sound back. You go around and each person says something that goes along with the theme (so for this example, one person might say apples, the next might say bass, etc). And the “it” person has to figure out what the theme is.
Never Have I Ever
Each person takes a turn saying, “Never Have I ever…” and list something they have never done. If someone else has done it, they put their finger up. The first person to get 10 fingers up wins!
Two Truths and a Lie
Board games can get tricky, but if you can navigate it correctly – they can be a lot of fun.
有些游戏需要一个人in charge of the board and moving pieces OR you can each have the board game in front of you.
If you are playing with children, I would recommend having the board game for the child, at the very least I have linked to all the games on Amazon.
For many of these games, it would be ideal to have a separate video feed over the top of the board game so everyone could easily see it.
Each player would need to have a Battleship board in front of them, but this would be a very easy game to play over Skype.
这是我们最喜欢的游戏之一 - 还有很多不同的版本。我的孩子特别喜欢迪士尼版。
This would require some modifications – you would probably need to send a picture of the play card to the person who doesn’t have the board.
Another game where you each will need a board. Simple to play across the web!
This is a family favorite in our home. While you can buy sets (we love this Farkle party set), you just need everyone to find six dice, and it can easily be played over video chat with any number of people!
有一些应用程序版本（这不仅仅是儿童）可能很有趣 - 尽管它需要您不使用手机进行视频聊天和计算机。
If you play the actual Headbanz, I would recommend having it for each player.
Most versions of Monopoly would be too tricky to play over video chat, but this version is doable! You don’t have actual cash to worry about, and it’s pretty easy to just watch the board and make decisions.
One of my all-time favorite games!
My cousins played this over zoom and it seemed fun. They had one video feed over the board. And someone who wasn’t playing dealt the cards and sent a picture of them to each person. They said it was fun! I also found thisdigital versionof clue that sounds fun.
这是一个最近我们一直在玩游戏g, and it’s a lot of fun. Easy to do over video.
I always loved this game growing up, but there don’t seem to be a lot of versions of it for sale anymore!
I think you could pretty easily mirror this one if each player had their own board (one person could draw and move everyone, but I can’t imagine that would go over well if you have more than one child playing).
You’d probably have double cards, but that’s okay!
This one might be a little tricky – you can’t really grab the card unless you are the one with it in front of you. So I would just say whoever says the item they see first wins. Make sure everyone’s playing cards are in view!
I have shared my favorites below, but you can see the rest of the在这里的夹克电视上最好的家庭友好游戏。
This is a game you can buy from JackBox TV. If you are playing with children, make sure you get Drawful 2 so you can enable family-friendly mode.
We LOVE this game, and if you have Steam downloaded on your computer, you could easily share the screen over video chat and everyone can login and play.
This is another one from JackBox TV that we love. It also has family-friendly mode that you can enable. Same as Drawful – just share your screen on your computer!
kahoot.is often using in educational environments, but it’s a lot of fun to play. We did this over Zoom, and I just shared my screen and everyone played from their device. You can make up games, use games other people have made, etc. on pretty much any topic! My eight-year-old LOVES this!
D.id I miss any? Be sure to chime in below with any games YOU like to play over video chat!
