Great Apps For Parties

The holiday season is here, which means time spent with family and friends. Whether you’re looking to share a few laughs or trying to fill in all those awkward silences with family members that you only see once a year, these are some of my favorite games to play at a party on your mobile phones and tablets.

 

SpaceTeam

iOS - Free
Android - Free

This is by far my favorite party game! SpaceTeam is a cooperative game for iOS and Android.

You and your team are piloting an out of control spaceship. Every team member will need their own devices to control a different panel made up of buttons and knobs that are labeled crazy names. Team members will shout out button names to hit and the team members that have that button must activate it on their control panel. Miss too many and your ship will start to fall apart, which in my case leads to complete panic and an increased volume of my voice.

If your team is successful you move on to the next level, but watch out for asteroids. This game will have you yelling, flipping, and shaking your phones and looking completely crazy. If your friends and family like to laugh and yell crazy words out loud go download this game!

 

Heads Up

iOS - 0.99
Android - Free

Most people have probably heard of this game, but in case you have been living under a rock,

it was created by the Ellen TV show. Heads Up is a game where you guess the word on a card or on your phone screen from your clues that are given from a friend. All you have to do is guess the card before time runs out.

 

This or That

iOS - Free
Android - Free

This is a simple game made up of questions you can ask a group would you rather do this, or that? Questions will have you laughing out loud and might spark debates as to why in the world would to choose that! After you choose an answer you’ll see the percentage in the world that went with this or that.


 

What If...

iOS - Free
Android - Free

Whats another way to spark awkward conversations? Similar to This or That game, The game What if asks you...What if you ______, but you _____. Would you say yes?

This game also shares the percentage of people that answered the question the same.

Reverse Charades

iOS - Free
Android - Free

One thing my family is great at is being completely ridiculous together, which makes this game perfect. Rather than having one person act out like you’d see in classic Charades, in Reverse Charades everyone acts out the subject and one person has to guess the subject. I’m sure you can imagine the craziness having a group of people bouncing around the room.
