There are many times when we’re at work or on the train or something similar where we want to spend a bit of time playing a simple and fun game on our phones. There are so many options to choose from, but which ones are the most fun?
Considering smartphone gaming has come such a long way in a short period, it is no surprise that there are some excellent games to choose from. Here are ten that you can play online with your friends.
Words with Friends 2
Words with Friends is a mobile version of the popular word game Scrabble. You get dealt tiles, and your job is to make high-scoring words to beat your opponent. There are also different modes and events you can take part in.
The game also features word goals that award you with prizes, and the different modes include a speed mode where you have to play as quickly as possible.
Quiz Up is a classic one-on-one quiz game where you can pick from several categories that range from guessing logos to Mean Girls trivia, and you have to answer the questions as quick as possible. The quicker you answer, the more points you get.
Games are really quick, and the variety in categories means there is something for everyone and an almost endless choice of quizzes.
Among Us <H2>
The now-classic game of cooperation and manipulation, Among Us, sees a group of players take on the roles of either crewmates or killers. Crewmates must complete tasks, and killers have to blend in and not be caught.
Each round, you choose to vote someone out; if you vote out the killers before they kill off too many crewmates, the crew wins. This game is filled with excitement and deceit and is a brilliant party game.
If you are a fan of Cards Against Humanity, then Evil Apples is for you. While it isn’t the same game, the mobile version provides all the same fun and laughter that the original does.
The game has over 4000 different cards, and you can either play with friends or with strangers and see who can be the darkest, funniest, or most absurd.
Draw Something is another classic but straightforward game. Similar to Pictionary, you can play with a group of people and get given the choice of three different things to draw. The harder it is to draw, the more points you get if someone guesses it right.
With hundreds of different clues to choose from, you can play the game for hours and not get repeating clues.
Another game that will look familiar to board game fanatics is Ruzzle. Based on Boggle, Ruzzle is played by over 70 million players and has had a combined playtime of over 100,000 since it was released.
Ruzzle plays like Boggle, each player will get the same mix-up of letters, and you have a very limited amount of time to find as many words as possible.
Trivia Crack 2
Trivia Crack 2 is the all-in-one quiz game that sees you tackle any number of different topics by yourself, with friends, or in a group of up to 50 people. There are also several daily and weekly challenges you can participate in to earn crowns and prizes.
Trivia Crack also offers different game modes outside of regular quizzes, giving you more than enough options to keep playing.
The ultimate board game is on mobile for everyone to enjoy. Many different chess apps allow you to send invites and challenge your friends to a game. With simple graphics and a clean interface, most chess apps do exactly what they say on the can.
Virtual crosswords are also available for you and your friends to play. Once again, many crossword apps offer players hundreds, even thousands of crosswords to choose from, and you can complete them with friends whenever you choose.
