With zoom essentially becoming our meeting spaces, event venues, and Friday hang-out spots this past year- what have been your favorite games or activities to do with your colleagues/ friends?

we had so much fun with skribbl.io ;) although it's a standalone game, it's still a great way to spend your evening with virtual friends

@elen_u that's a good one. For more virtual parties and fun experiences, you might also like (https://www.patio.to) as it's all built in :)

@elen_u you can embed scribbl.io right into Rume (rumevideo.com) and have video along side the game. There are also a bunch of other games like poker, codenames, kings cup, and settlers!

I would say Gaming! Me and my friends love to get in Zoom Calls to play Phasmofobia, Hand Simulator, and some other co-op games ;) There are some card games that are pretty cool as well from theschooloflife.com

We've done a few 'scavenger hunt' kinda things - e.g. 'go find something from a foreign country' - which gets people telling stories

I also really love the game We're Not Really Strangers (https://www.werenotreallystrange...) - a bunch of good questions & prompts in there!

@samliebeskind Ooh kind of reminds me of the cards from The And Project, but a more casual version.

@samliebeskind @hannahsuyun ooh that's cool - I hadn't seen "The And Project", looks cool. check out this video of 2 total strangers playing it in the part - https://youtu.be/ijBBYujUPBk - I can't wait for quarantine to end to be able to actually do this for real too!

Here for no code goodies with Idea Link.
JackBox is an awesome party game platform, I can't recommend it enough. We also use the Kahoot platform to make quizzes, while Cards Against Humanity is playable online through a variety of websites/apps.

We have a happy-hour door dropoff rotation. Every week a different team member picks out a favorite cocktail, beer, or other beverage and snack and drives around to everyone's house to leave it at the door. Super fun to share with each other and added an extra element to our weekly happy hour! We have also done trivia, skribbl.io, taboo and those are all fun.

My friends and I play games on Steam, including Risk, Scythe, and Tabletop Simulator offerings (I hate that this last one glitches). Among Us is our go-to game for larger parties if Jackbox crashes. Boardgame Arena has a ton of games, needing only one premium membership, and Yucata is free.

Draw a picture on a paper out of webcam range. Give explanation about how to draw it to other. Compare the different picture at the end. It is quite nice for teambuilding: to help understand how other people think.

Highly recommend Jackbox games! We use the desktop version which works great with a Zoom screenshare. It's really made our team's virtual hangouts more fun and engaging for everyone...

I love playing Among Us with friends--we built Among Us Rume (https://amongus.video) so that when you die you can still chat with your friends and listen to the meetings.

Always looking for the next best thing.
Did my goodbye drinks and welcome drinks last months in Mibo https://getmibo.com/. But also celebrated birthdays and met friends for drinks and to socialize. Spend hours socializing and playing trivias. To my opinion its the best way to currently β€˜meet’ and socialize πŸ‘Œ
