Virtual game night with your friends

Sick of playing Monopoly and looking to change it up? A great game to play virtually with your friends is Psych! Similar to Kahoot, you and your friends are all able to join the same game by typing in a code. Once all of the players enter the game, the same question appears on everyone’s screen and all of the players must type in their answers. Once all of the players have done this, the answers will appear and each player votes on their favorite. You can download Psych free from the App Store or Google Play.
