The first one we have here is Draw One. Who doesn’t like doodling? Everyone in their childhood have doodled on their textbooks or on the back of their notebooks; some have selected artistic paths and some have decided not to draw again after seeing their masterpieces.
Now we can go back to the beginning with ‘Draw One’. It’s a new version of the classic Pictionary game. One has to draw/doodle and the other has to guess words from the drawing. It is a fun way to pass time along with being innovative.
Would You Rather?
Would You Rather comes under the party games category. Where everyone wants to know the person you are and along with that have fun. Would you rather? Is a really interesting game which makes you question your rationale. This game is a two or multiplayer game.
One question is asked and you have to choose from the given two options; for example, “Would you rather have a power to fly or a power to be invisible?”. At the end of the game only the option you selected is shown to the other player.
If you are playing in a group then it categories player’s names into the option they selected and shows you the chart as results. It’s a cool way to know how the other person thinks or prefers.
Black vs White
Black vs White is a strategy board game measuring 8×8. The rules of this game is a bit complicated but once you start and know it, it’s really great to play. There are two coloured discs allotted to two players; Black and White.
The two players try to “sandwich” the other player’s disc with his colour with their own coloured disc. The sandwiched discs are then changed to discs with your colour. The player with the greatest number of discs of his/her colour wins the game. This Board game beats the notion that says Board games are boring perfectly.
Tap Duel is a simple game. Hence can be addictive easily. It’s a solo game where no other person is involved while the game is going on.
