Game Room: How to Entertain You and Friends During the Pandemic


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the dynamics of life from how we work, to how we play and socialise with friends. Most people do not know how to socialise when practising social distancing. In addition, just because you must stay home does not mean that you cannot entertain friends.


The change will come in the form that you are not physically together. However, advancement in technology has enabled us to connect virtually. This means that you can beat the boredom during the pandemic quarantine by engaging in sports that require social distancing.

Here is how to entertain you and your friend during the pandemic:

Create A Game Room
Since most people hardly ever spent this much time at home, they would occasionally play video games and other games in the living room on the dining room table. However, since you will be in your house for longer, you should have a dedicated game room for you and your family members.

You could start by moving your gaming consoles to the game room and adding more games to it such as foosball, ping pong  and more.

Get the Right Games
Choosing the right game is the best way to make use of your gaming room. For example, you could get a popular video game and play in multiplayer mode. For example, games such as GTA, NFS, FIFA, and more could be played by two people at the same time.

If you and your friends are excellent, you could record or stream your matches!

Besides, ePremier League Invitational has already received media distribution with some of the biggest broadcasting companies such as NBC in the US and DAZN in several countries.

However, to do this, each one of you and your friends needs to have stable internet connectivity. Here are several games that you can engage in:

If you and your friends are into creating new worlds and building things, then you will love Minecraft. With the game, you can learn how to be an engineer and up to 8 people can play the game and build anything in the creative mode.

On the other hand, you can see how long you can last in survivor mode. Fortunately, Minecraft is available for players of all ages.

Fortnite has been a huge hit, and the family-friendly first-shooter game draws in millions of daily players, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortnite is part of Epic Games, and they recently added a new feature called Large Party Support, where up to 16 players can play in one game.

Like Minecraft, all you need is a strong internet connection, and you are in for a great time with your friends. However, Fortnite is a fast-paced online survival game where players fight against each other to be the last person standing.

Remote Insensitivity
Remote Insensitivity is also known as Cards against Humanity in tabletop version, and it is a party gamer for horrible people. It is a game designed for adults only, and players fill in the blanks with words or phrases that are deemed risqué, offensive, or politically incorrect words or phrases that are printed on cards.

This game allows a free trial, and all you need is to be on call via Zoom or Skype to see your friends’ reactions. Only you and five of your friends can play Remote Insensitivity at a time.

Boredom during the pandemic can cause serious issues, both physically and mentally. To beat this, reach out to your friends and start gaming. We hope that the information above was useful. However, if you are still puzzled on what to get, check out some reviews and start exploring!
