Here is a list of 5 popular mobile games that will take you on a trip down memory lane and provide you hours of entertainment with loves ones during this lockdown
It has been nearly 30 days since the government announced a partial lockdown across Pakistan owing to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
With the increasing number of cases each day, the government is devising policies on how to reduce the spread of the virus and on the other hand people staying home and practicing social distancing are looking for ways to get through these trying times.
Let’s face it staying home is difficult, especially when there are only a limited number of things to do to keep one entertained. So, if you are not looking to become a master chef by the end of the pandemic and are tired of watching shows or net surfing, here is a list of top 5 games you can play with your friends and/or family virtually.
Just because you cannot be in the same room as your friends, does not mean you cannot have fun together playing games just like during those non-quarantine times.
Growing up desi, we have definitely played Ludo with our family at least once in our life. And what better way to spend time at home and connect with friends and family than by playing Ludo. But this time virtually online!
The Ludo Star app has the same rules we are accustomed to and is easy to play. However, there is a catch. The only thing it does not let us do is throw the board and walk out when we are losing the game.
You can download it on your android phone through the Play Store or on your iPhone through the Apple store. And if you want a cheat hack, you can follow this thread in Question Updates and thank us later
Another game that used to be our childhood favorite was Uno. The card game brought families together and if things got heated it also broke them apart, but temporarily of course!
However, the best thing about playing Uno online is that you can customize the rules according to your ‘made-up’ house rules.
You can download the game here and get started: https://www.letsplayuno.com/
If you are someone who is into more profound and intellectual games then Scrabble is the game for you. You can learn a word or two while you play with your friends and family virtually.
In fact, we suggest playing with your colleagues too during these work-from-home times to keep things light and fun.
