The drawer in this example generates a word and has one minute draw that word for their team to guess. If the team guesses the card correctly, they get the point. The team that reaches 10 wins.
This game has been popular with players for a long time and is great for a platform like zoom. To play this game it's very simple by just picking a letter. Each participant has to list a famous persons name, place, and a thing that begins with that letter. The first player to type them into the platform chat will receive a point first player to reach 10 wins.
This is very simple and in such a classic game. In this version the host provides the group a series of trivia questions where it could range from a variety of categories or you can customize it towards the group. So as an example the host would provide the trivia question to the participants, and each participant would send a chat answer back to the host. If indeed it is the correct answer the host will award a point to the players that entered correctly. Set a threshold number (10) for victory
