Like many other activities, hosting an in-person game night with your friends is likely not going to happen in the foreseeable future. But that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate the experience virtually from the safety of your own home. Whether you’re a fiercely competitive Scrabble type or are just missing your monthly pub trivia hangout, you can play versions of these games through apps on your iPhone or Android phone. Better yet? Most of them are free to download. Here are some of the best multiplayer app games to play with your friends right now.
If you’d rather host your own trivia night, Kahoot allows you to create your own quizzes with multiple choice or true or false answers. After you are done creating your the quiz, the app generates a unique game pin code, which you can share with your friends. All they have to do to join in on your live quiz is add the code via the “Enter Pin” button on the home screen. You can invite up to 10 players per game with the free version of the app, while Kahoot! Plus lets you invite more people for $9.99 per month.
