Diwali is right around the corner. But it isn’t the same this year. The ongoing pandemic has made it almost impossible for people to meet their friends and family for Diwali parties. For some, the pandemic has made it difficult to travel home and celebrate the festival of lights with their family members. Thanks to video calling platforms such as Google Meet, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Zoom and their extended participant limits, people can not only celebrate Diwali with their friends and family from afar but they can also play Diwali games virtually.

If you are planning a virtual Diwali party, here are the top games that you can play:

Name Place Animal Thing

Name Place Animal Thing is one of the most popular games of the yesteryears. Minimise the video call to give a little space to the timer or have an extra person who will regulate the time and words. Let one person start and pick the alphabet to begin the game and see who is more aware of name, place, animal, and things.

Tambola

Tambola is an all-time favourite game for people of all age groups wherein you have to cut the numbers that are called out. You can keep 4 prize slots: Rows, 4-corners, Early-7 and full house.cDistribute the chits through WhatsApp and others can draw it on a sheet as it is. You may then start the game with some music and drinks. Cheers-to-online Tambola and lets the fun begin.

Never Have I Ever

Arrange for drinks or coffee shots in shot glasses. Make sure everyone has 10 glass shots with them. Decide who will ask the question to whom. Begin the game and start asking questions you have never done in your life. If your friend has done that, they will have one shot and the circle continues till all the shots are over.

Heads Up

Download the app and then choose the theme you want to play. Now keep the phone on your head and a word/character will come which your friend on the other side of the video call will help you to guess. If you get a correct answer, you just have to tilt the phone forward and the next guess would come and in case you skip you just have to tilt it backward. Once your turn is over, your friend will then start and you will help him/her to guess.

Pictionary

Everyone should have a whiteboard or a notebook in hand. Start from the top of your group video call, now the first person will draw a word and the first person to guess will win. This can also be in a group, if there are two to three people in one place. In this case, one person in the group will draw and the other team will have to guess within a minute to win. Make it fun, by keeping a dare for the team who loses.
