  1. Drawful: Each player gets a prompt, and they need to draw the prompt on their phone screen. The prompts are weird and straightforward in a way. It is also entertaining to see people’s artistic side. Then each drawing will be shown to all the players, and they have to guess the prompt and write it down. Like Fibbage, the players eventually see the correct prompt and all the other answers, and they have to guess the write one and gather points to win the battle.
  2. Quiplash: When the round starts, players will get two random questions on their screen, which they need to answer funnily. Each question will pop up only for two players (The players’ identities have to remain a secret), and therefore, each question will get two funny answers. After the players have answered the questions, each question is presented on the screen with the two answers, and all players need to vote for the funnier answer. The answer with more votes wins the round.

We also played Cards Against Humanity over the internet during the lockdown.

If you are not familiar, “Cards Against Humanity” is an adult card game in which one player picks a question card, and all others need to submit their answers by choosing cards from their deck. The player with the question chooses then the funniest, crudest answer. The player with the chosen answer gets the point for this round, and then a different player chooses the next question card. The game can get very crude and dark — be advised that you will most probably be offended by a specific question/answer combo.
