Virtual Family Game Night

May 7, 2020

Some of the best memories we have made this quarantine, have been connecting with family through Zoom game nights! We have done this a handful of times and it is always so much fun to see everyone’s faces. Whether you are connecting with family or friends, a virtual family game night can be SO much fun. The key is to have a host so everyone knows when to talk. Also, a lesson on muting mics is a must. Below we are sharing some creative ways to bring on some laughs from afar!

Abby’s Poetry Slam

Abby is not one to shy away from an enthusiastic reading… fellow Leo’s will understand 😉 For her family game night she put together a fun (and educational) poetry slam. The rules are simple and you can even play with additional family members over FaceTime or Zoom. Grab some pens, paper and creativity for this game night idea.

Here are some fun prompts to get you started:

  • Write an Alliteration using your name
  • Use a Haiku to describe your morning
  • Write an Acrostic poem using the name of the person to your left
  • Use a multi line couplet poem to describe your best friend

Christine’s Charades

True to Scorpio form, Christine loves theatrics. So when someone suggest a round of Head’s Up or charades you better believe she is all in. This game here takes charades to an extra level, like “brush your luxurious hair”, which will make things a bit more interesting! And though her 2 year-old may need some help acting it out, she’s pretty sure he’ll have “roar like a T-Rex” down like no one’s business.

On A Scale Of One to T-Rex game

Because of the short attention span of said 2 year-old, baking ahead of time is probably not in the cards (pun unintended). So she’s whipping out her favorite hummus, veggies, pretzels and tortilla chips. A little something for everyone to snack on. And maybe just a little Mommy Juice 😉

Lindsey’s Multi-Family Fun Night

OK so this virtual game night just requires Zoom and someone who volunteer’s to host so it all goes smoothly. Prior to your game night, assign each family a task below to prepare for the big event. Once everyone is on Zoom, the host invites each family to share their activity for each round. The other teams mute their mics and write down responses. After each round, they report their points to the host who also acts as the score keeper.

Appetizer, anyone?

Snacks on the side include veggie chips and cheesy dips. Here are some simple recipes to get you started.

Spinach Chips:

  • Coat spinach leaves with olive oil and sprinkle of salt.
  • Place on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  • Cook at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Sweet Potato Chips

  • Slice sweet potato into 1/4″ thick slices.
  • Coat with olive oil and sprinkle of salt.
  • Place on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  • Cook at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Ok ok just grab a bag of Doritos, some M&M’s and fun drinks and enjoy your virtual family game night!
