Same Room Games is the perfect collection of multiplayer mini-games to try with friends
Being in lockdown can be both boring and stressful. You can't see your friends or really socialise outside of those living with you, and those who do venture outside tend to be a little on edge. So it's especially important right now to chat and play online with friends as much as we can.
Enter Same Room Games, a quality collection of multiplayer mini-games designed to get people chatting and keep spirits high. If you don't happen to be in the same room as your pals, it's super easy to set up a public game for others to join.
You can split into teams or compete to earn the highest individual score – it's really up to you how you want to play. The mini-games on offer are varied, fun, and occasionally quite tricky, with nine in total for you to try out and hopefully master.
One of the highlights is Zombies vs Human, which challenges you to traverse a dungeon and collect as much food as possible while being chased by a horde of ravenous zombies. Every time a piece of food is picked up, the player-controlled zombies are alerted to where the human is in the dungeon, adding to the tension and making for a fun time.
There are also fast-paced quiz modes with multiple-choice questions. One of these tasks you with sending in your answers before the strict time limit runs out. Once everyone has put in their guess, the person who guessed correctly in the shortest amount of time will win the round.
Know Your Friends is another interesting one. Here, you'll find out all manner of interesting facts about the people you're playing with. The idea is that you'll all be asked a question, then one answer is revealed to the other players. It's then a matter of guessing who among the players has given that answer.
