Oh I am so excited you guys are lovingthe very first zoom games video! Thank you guys so much for loving it andwatching it and sharing it with your friends and your family.
So I decided to film the second version of zoom games.
Who's excited? who's excited with me? Okay I'm a little hyper because it's my birthday.
If we're meeting for the first time, hi myname is Shawn.
Welcome! On this channel I am passionate about bringing families closer together through fun and games.
And one way we can have fun during this time of lockdown and seriousness is through online zoom games.
So I'm here to bring you eight new games you've never thought of to play with your friends and family.
So if that sounds good to you then keep watching.
While you are here, I would love for you to consider subscribing to my channel if you two want to grow closer to your family and friends.
alright let's jump into today's video.
Here we go.
Game number one is called Emoji Lineup.
This game is best played on your phone.
So the leader will type in five random emojis, like these right here, everybody will try totype in the same exact five emojis and whoever does this the fastest is the winner.
The second game is called Words within Words.
The leader will type a word in and everybody has to try and find the most number of words within that word.
Does that make sense? Let me give you an example.
Here's the word and here are some word options that can be made from that word.
You could also play this game with a phrase like this one here but the trick is you only have one minute to type in as many words that you can find, Did you know that Zoom has a whiteboard feature ? You can play games that require all the players to contribute and write things on the whiteboard.
So tic-tac-toe is a fabulous option to play especially if you're Zooming your grandma online you can do tic-tac-toe.
The next game is called Famous for Two Minutes.
You only have two minutes to be famous.
Have all of your Zoom players submit some questions and pick one person to be famous for two minutes.
Then everybody gets to ask questions to that one player who's famous for two minutes.
For example, when was the last time you ate Bugles? No really when was the last time you ate Bugles? They're pretty salty.
Who are you wearing? Editing Shawn here.
I am wearing quarantine fashion brought to you by Barefoot Dreams, American Eagle, and Lululemon.
Did you know that you can play Guess Who online on Zoom? And I'm not talking about downloading some game, paying some price.
No, I'm talking about old school Guess Who.
If all the players on your call have the Guess Who game then this works perfectly for online.
The next Game is called Mind Meld.
I know it sounds very brainy.
And maybe a little superhero sci-fi action.
So two players will count down: three to one.
And then try to say the exact same words at the same time.
So I was gonna get my husbandto help out with this demonstration but he's with my toddler and they're in thebathroom and I have no clue what is happening.
I'm going to split the screen and I will be playing two different people at the same time.
Let's see how this goes.
All right good, three two one mayonnaise.
The player who wins that round turns to the next player: three two one hot dog.
This is a great game to play with lots of people on your Zoom call.
Farkle is another game that everybody can play online.
All you need to make sure is that everyplayer has six dice.
Dice or die? Die is one, dice is more than one.
Make sure you have six dice and you're all set to play Farkle.
On how to play Farkle in thedescription box down below.
Another game to play online is matching card game.
Now we have this really cute little matching card game set right here.
Everybody can play.
Only one person needs to have this game.
I'm gonna insert some footage right now of how to set up a second camera angle because you are gonna need to do that so that every player on your Zoom call can see the memory card setup.
This is how you set it up using simple grocery items that you can find in your pantry and your cell phone.
And then you play on your laptop.
Boggle! Again you're gonna need the setup that I just showed you in the last gameoption.
You guys know how to play Boggle right? I will leave a Boggle board down in thedescription box that you could buy off of Amazon.
We love Boggle at home.
If you missed the very first Zoom games.
I will link in a card right up here foryou to watch.
The last game is Scattergories.
You guys know ho to play thismaybe? maybe? You come up with a category, say “fruits.
” And everybody has to name a fruit until nobody can name any more fruits.
And you can divide players upinto teams or you can play one on one and keep a score.
I will leave a Pinterest post in the description box down below of some Scattegory category optionsfor you to play this game online.
Let me know in the comment section down below what are your favorite zoom games to play? I am sure that this community willlove some more ideas.
Remember to stay safe at home.
