You Can Play Cards Against Humanity With Your Mates Online During The New Lockdown
Since we'll all be spending more time in our homes following the announcement of a third UK national lockdown yesterday (4 January), you might be looking for ways to hang out with your mates virtually.
If so, you'll be interested to hear you can now play Cards Against Humanity online with your friends for free.
The popular game, which really brings out the worst in people, can be played on allbad.cards and is fairly simple to set up; you can create a game or join one your mates have already set up, where everyone can see the game in real time and join in.
To make it feel even more like a normal night in with your mates, set up a video chat with everyone in and you can chat while you play.
Once set up, the rules are the same as the IRL version of the game - a question card is pulled, everyone looks at their hand and chooses the best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) answer before a judge picks the winner.
The virtual version will keep everyone's hand private and players choose their card with the 'pick' button and confirm it by selecting 'play'.
Once done the judge (or Card Queen, as All Bad Cards calls them) selects their favourite card. Simple enough, eh?
If Cards Against Humanity isn't your things, then how about a nightly pub quiz you can stream live?

Goose's Quizzes, based in Scotland, usually puts on quizzes in around 40-or-so pubs but when social distancing was introduced, they decided to go digital and have been overwhelmed with the response.
They started the online quizzes in the first lockdown and are still going now.
Andrew, founder of Goose's Quizzes, told LADbible, the day after Boris Johnson told pubs and bars to close he and the team 'worked flat out' to sort out a free, virtual pub quiz that anyone can join, anywhere in the world.
He said: "What we knocked out was by no means professional, but we love doing pub quizzes so it meant we could actually run some form of a pub quiz online for people.
"We use Twitch to stream the quiz and Google Forms for people to fill in their answers, then we mark them and reveal the answers the following night.
"The response we've had has been overwhelming. We've asked people to send in photos of themselves at home playing along and we're getting photos of people in their jarmies, we had a couple of guys who were stood in a queue at Morrisons, just having a great time playing along.
"I think that's what we need - that community. We've had people tune in from all over the world. We're just trying to make the best of the bad situation."
