We all miss the TGIF feeling of a good happy hour at the weekend. But do we need to lose this because of lockdown? Of course not! You can organize a group of virtual happy hour games to play with your co-workers, bosses, and friends at the end of your long work week!
Our Top Virtual Happy Hour Games:
1. Two Truths and a Lie
This game is foolproof. Everybody writes down two things that are true about them and one thing that’s made up. Then the others try to guess what is true and what is made up. This is a great virtual happy hour game for people who are trying to get to know each other- even for a romantic date.
You can add a drinking element to this game by taking a shot when you get something wrong. Sometimes it can be hard to think of an original idea for a lie. Some lie ideas to trick people can be a skill or family members.
2. I Spy
This game starts with “I spy with my little eye something beginning with…”. You say the first letter of the object and your friends guess the word.
You might think you can’t play this happy hour game virtually because your friends can’t see your room. But you can upload an image of a virtual room with items in it so everyone can see the same. And of course, a shot for every wrong answer.
3. Dress Up
2020 was the year of the gym gear. And sure, it was comfortable but we’re all missing dressing up, right?
Dressing up is an exciting way to spice up your virtual happy hour. Why not make a game out of it by giving a prize to the best dressed? You could do a new theme every weekend to shake things up.
Pictionary isn’t a game that we would normally play at a happy hour. But for your virtual happy hour, it will go down a treat. Make sure you pick a virtual event platform with an interactive whiteboard, such as Remo. Using your virtual whiteboard, you can change the color of the pen and draw some cool images.
Who knows, you might discover the next artist in your group of friends!
5. Never Have I Ever: Lockdown Edition
So many people have taken up exciting new hobbies during lockdown. Get a list of never have I ever ideas and see what your friends have been up to in lockdown.
Everyone takes a drink if they have done something so it’s an exciting game for your virtual happy hour.
6. Paint and Prosecco
Getting creative has been popular during lockdown. But of course, we all miss our friends so why not make it a group activity?
A few glasses of prosecco will get the creative juices flowing. And this virtual happy hour game might show the competitive side of some of your friends!
7. Drink Tasting
For your next virtual happy hour why not create a game where you and your friends taste drinks? There are many drinks you can choose from:
- Wine (red, rosé or white)
- Cocktails or mocktails for those not drinking alcohol
Pick a theme for every week, discuss the flavors and pick a winner!
8. Heads Up!
Heads up is a great app you can use for a virtual happy hour game. It is a quiz where the people in your group describe a word that is on the app on your phone. At the end, you add up your score to see how many questions you got right.
The themes of the quizzes are really fun and include:
- Disney movies
- 90’s songs
There’s something for everyone and you’ll be sure to get a laugh during your happy hour.
