Zooming with family doesn’t have to be boring. Spice up your virtual online call with a little fun and laughter. We love having fun as a family and want to share that fun with you.

00:55alright let’s jump into today’s video.00:59Here we go.
01:01Game number one is called Emoji Lineup.
01:06This game is best played on your phone.
01:08So the leader will type in five random emojis,01:11like these right here, everybody will try to type in
01:13the same exact five emojis and whoever does this
01:18the fastest is the winner.01:20The second game is called Words within Words..
01:23The leader will type a word in and everybody has to try
01:26and find the most number of words within that word.
01:30Does that make sense?01:33Let me give you an example.
01:34Here’s the word and here are some word options
01:35that can be made from that word.01:36You could also play this game with a phrase like this one here
01:41but the trick is you only have one minute
01:44to type in as many words that you can find,
01:46Did you know that Zoom has a whiteboard feature ?
01:50You can play games that require all the players to contribute
01:52and write things on the whiteboard.01:57So tic-tac-toe is a fabulous option to play
02:00especially if you’re Zooming your grandma online
02:01you can do tic-tac-toe.02:03The next game is called Famous for Two Minutes.
02:05You only have two minutes to be famous.
02:08Have all of your Zoom players submit some questions
02:10and pick one person to be famous for two minutes.
02:15Then everybody gets to ask questions to that one player
02:15who’s famous for two minutes.02:18For example, when was the last time you ate Bugles?
02:22No really when was the last time you ate Bugles?02:24They’re pretty salty.
02:26Who are you wearing?02:28Editing Shawn here.
02:30I am wearing quarantine fashion brought to you by Barefoot Dreams,
02:35American Eagle, and Lululemon.02:40Did you know that you can play Guess Who online on Zoom?
02:45And I’m not talking about downloading some game, paying some price.
02:51No, I’m talking about old school Guess Who.02:54If all the players on your call have the Guess Who game02:54then this works perfectly for online.02:58The next Game is called Mind Meld.
03:05I know it sounds very brainy.03:06And maybe a little superhero sci-fi action.
03:12So two players will count down: three to one.03:14And then try to say the exact same words at the same time.03:19So I was gonna get my husband to help out with this demonstration
03:20but he’s with my toddler and they’re in the bathroom03:24and I have no clue what is happening.
03:27I’m going to split the screen
03:29and I will be playing two different people at the same time.03:31Let’s see how this goes.03:32All right good, three two one mayonnaise.
03:36The player who wins that round turns to the next player:
03:40three two one hot dog.03:41This is a great game to play with lots of people on your Zoom call.
03:45Farkle is another game that everybody can play online.
03:46All you need to make sure is that every player has six dice.
03:49Dice or die?03:54Die is one, dice is more than one.
03:56Make sure you have six dice and you’re all set to play Farkle.

04:04Now we have this really cute little matching card game set right here.
04:09Everybody can play.04:10Only one person needs to have this game.
04:13I’m gonna insert some footage right now04:17of how to set up a second camera angle
04:19because you are gonna need to do that
04:20so that every player on your Zoom call can see the memory card setup.
04:25This is how you set it up using simple grocery items
04:27that you can find in your pantry and your cell phone.
04:32And then you play on your laptop.04:34Boggle! Again you’re gonna need the setup
04:37that I just showed you in the last game option.

04:51The last game is Scattergories.04:53You guys know ho to play this maybe? maybe?
04:55You come up with a category, say “fruits.”
04:56And everybody has to name a fruit until nobody can name any more fruits.
05:01And you can divide players up into teams
