India has been put under a 21-day lockdown and it’s easy to say that we are all bored out of our minds. All our socialising is limited to our online presence now, and so we’ve resorted to finding online alternatives to our favourite party games.

1. Houseparty

The reason why this one is on top of the list is that you can play games with your friends (8 max) while on a video call. This app has options like trivia, Pictionary and card games that’ll make for great company during virtual Saturday night party.
