Does anyone else remember huddling around the family computer to play You Don't Know Jack? No? Just us? Huh. Regardless, these days, the pioneering virtual-trivia company Jackbox boasts a bunch of online party games, in which you can use your tablet or smartphone as a controller and play with up to ten peeps at a time on your PC. We suggest nabbing one of Jack’s party packs (they sell for between $25 and $30), and each includes five games ranging from doodle and joke contests (like the super-popular Quiplash and Drawful) to hidden-identity whodunits and, yes, trivia.
You don't have to be in the same room with your friends to have an epic night. Instead of going out, these online party games are the best way for friend groups to have a fun night from the comfort of their respective pads. For everyone's convenience, we've curated the best online games to play with friends, everything from OG online-trivia phenom You Don’t Know Jack and tried-and-true classics like Scrabble, Monopoly and Risk to character-based bouts and plenty of fun drinking games.
