Online multiplayer games to play if you love Among Us

online multiplayer games like among us

The lockdown has forced us to stay at home to prevent COVID-19 disease. This might be the longest period yet for most of us at home, and we’re all missing the normal, fun life outside.

Thanks to the internet, there are fun ways to catch up and enjoy with friends without breaking the physical distancing rule. I’ll be sharing four online multiplayer games, aside from Among Us, that my friends and I have been playing recently when boredom strikes. You’ll only need the internet—and some skills!—in playing these either on your desktop or mobile⁠.

Skribbl.io

online multiplayer games

Skribbl.io is a free online multiplayer drawing and guessing game. There’s no limit on the number of players and you can create a private room for your group.

How to play: Every game consists of a few rounds, and each player has to draw their chosen word on the whiteboard while others guess the word to gain points. The person with the most points at the end of the game will then be crowned as the winner!

Uno

4 multiplayer online games to try with friends amidst the lockdown

Nope, not the usual Uno cards where everyone is seated around. Using the Telegram messaging app, you can play the classic game by adding the Uno bot (@unobot) in your chat group (everyone has to have a Telegram installed in their devices). You then can start the game by clicking /start@unobot.

How to play: Everyone will have a set of cards and the first player will have to drop their card of choice, followed by the other player, so on and so forth. The players who’ll be able to play all of the cards win.

Quizarium

4 multiplayer online games to try with friends amidst the lockdown

Do you love trivia games? Then Quizarium is for you. This is, again, a bot in Telegram (@Quizariumbot) that you can add in your chat group to play. It is a fast-paced online multiplayer game where all players can showcase their knowledge on geography, history, literature, movies, society, and music.

How to play: Every round, the bot sends trivia questions in the chat group while players guess the word. The fun part is that the person who’s the fastest to type the word gets the score, so make sure you’re quick! The first player who gets the highest score wins.

Werewolf

4 multiplayer online games to try with friends amidst the lockdown

Our favorite! Werewolf is a bot (@werewolfbot) in Telegram that can be included in a chat group to play with friends. This might take a few minutes to get the hang of it but it gets more addicting the longer you play it (we once played it three hours non-stop).

How to play: Werewolf is a game of deception where players take on different roles in the village. Everyone has to find the werewolf, or oftentimes, arson or serial killer, who has the power to kill other players of their choice. Players have to discuss or throw allegations towards each other in the chat group⁠—the twist is, even killers can pretend they’re villagers and fool everyone!

Villagers will then choose who to lynch (who they think the killer is) every night, and if they happen to lynch the werewolf, they win. Otherwise, the werewolf succeeds.

What’s your favorite online multiplayer games so far? Let me know in the comments!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this! I have been looking for family & date night games that we can play for a while, and none of them seem overly fun! I love these ideas. I think Skribbl.io sounds like a really interesting and funny game to play. You can’t beat UNO. I like to play a crude game with the family called XYZZY which is always funny
