4 Games for Your Next Zoom Happy Hour
Getting together with a group of friends to play your favorite games may seem like a thing of the past in the current social distancing climate - but it doesn't have to be! Thanks to video conferencing apps like Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, and others, you can still hang with your friends and play games. Here are four games from University Games that are perfect for your next Zoom happy hour or game night!
Whether it's just you and a friend or 20 other people, this game can accommodate groups of all sizes! The typical game of Smart Ass is played with cards dice in a game board, but a quick and easy modification to the game makes this one perfect for video chat. One player takes the role of the reader and reads a card, clue by clue 2 the other players. The first player to shout out the correct answer who wins the card. Watch out - players only have one chance 2 win the card and it can't guess a second time. The first player to earn 10 cards wins!
The frightfully funny game of ridiculous deaths throughout history will have you and your friends second-guessing each epitaph. Only one player needs a copy of this game to play over video chat. For every correct answer, players get to move on the game board. For every incorrect answer, move that grim Reaper!
3. Sort It Out
The game of putting things in order. Do you know the biggest, fastest, loudest, smallest, longest… everything? Sort It Out is the fast-paced game where knowing just a little about something can help you win it all. To play this game over video chat, one player just needs to position their camera so that all players can see the cards. Players then put the items on the card in order. The card is then flipped over to reveal the correct answers. For every correct answer, players earn one point (no penalty for getting an answer wrong!). The first player to earn 25 points in this video chat-modification wins!

Loaded with 1,100 questions covering six different categories, Ultimate Pub Trivia is a challenging and fun team play game that is perfect for everyone.
