These are our top nine picks for games you can play online while you and your friends are stuck in quarantine. Let the games, and boredom busting, begin!

Club Penguin

The old Club Penguin has been brought back to life; this time with no paid memberships, meaning you can adopt that puffle, buy that cute outfit and decorate your igloo however you like. So grab a friend to chat over a pizza, battle at the dojo or verse them in a classic snowball fight!

Available on PC

The online pictionary game to verse your friends in. One game consists of a few rounds in which every round someone has to draw their chosen word and others have to guess it to gain points! Collect as many points as you can and compete to be crowned the winner!

Sick of completing puzzles by yourself, are all puzzles now sold out, or is your table simply just not big enough to fit a puzzle? Well this online puzzle is perfect for you. Complete it alone or invite your friends to help you, play together in real-time with anyone around the world; unite and complete puzzles from easy to hard and test your skills!

Uno App

The true classic that needs no explanation. With new choices of cards, rules and gameplays to shake it up, invite your friends and family to a round of Uno!
