Just because you can’t physically be with your friends, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun together. Here, The Style Sheet rounds up five of our favourite multiplayer games that will connect you to your friends online. 


Best for: Testing Your Knowledge

Developed by Jackbox Games, You Don’t Know Jack is both a series of video games, and the first title of the series. Shaping up to be one of the most popular online games of COVID-19, it revolves around trivia that fuses high culture with pop culture. Expect plenty of outrageous questions and look out for celebrities popping up to lend a hand, too.

2. NBA 2K20

Best for: When you miss your teammates

NBA fans might be upset to miss the real-life NBA season, but this is a strong substitute. You can bring a full squad into the courts and play as a single team in online matches, which is perfect for those missing their IRL teammates (of any sport) at the moment.


Best for: Including those of all ages

A classic game updated for online, Scattergories is perfect for having some good old family fun. With one letter and five categories, you have one minute to come up with a word that fits in each category and starts with the chosen letter. The more creative you are with your answers, the more points you score. 


Best for: Testing your acting skills

From the makers of Heads Up comes PSYCH! Pick from a bunch of fun categories and make up fake answers to real trivia questions. One player must choose the real answer among the fakes. Watch out for the ‘And the Truth Comes Out’ deck that probes personal questions!


Best for: When you’re feeling lazy

Netflix Party is a new feature that can be added as a browser extension, which allows users to host a ‘party’ by inviting friends to watch a movie or TV show at the same time. It synchronises video playback and allows the group to chat on the screen while the movie is playing. While technically not a game, it’s perfect for simulating a chatter-filled movie session with your mates.
