The decent into the depths of winder calls for some plans for entertaining friends indoors. You have the drinks at the ready and the music on in the background. But what better to add than a party game that's not Monopoly. Here are a few of the top android games to keep your guests happy whether at a housewarming, birthday party or just an impromptu get together.
This is a dancing game that works by using your smartphone's motion sensors. Great for multiplayer use with more than one phone, it's designed so that each device is used with a partner. Holding one side each, guide an onscreen sphere through a path of rings by tilting the screen. Programmed with classical music designed with dance in mind, and coming with seven dances devised by the Dutch National Ballet, you'll find yourself undulating your arms, winding your form, till you're dancing!
A charades - style game with a themed deck of charades cards. If you're the one guessing, hold your phone up to your forehead and the word shown will have to be acted out by your friends for you to guess. Extra in-app purchases mean you can customise your cards decks.
Who Can't Draw?
A fun challenging game where each player is tasked with a word that they must then attempt to draw. The phone or android device has to be passed from player to player, and each must attempt to copy the drawing they were just passed. You get fifteen seconds. At the last player, you guess the original word. Kind of reminds us of a sketch version of Chinese whispers.
Ticket To Ride
Suitable for play with up to five people, everybody can either have the app on their own phones to participate, or use one device to opt for the pass and play feature. This is a great design of the train based board game where card dealing and piece-handling is done digitally making for easy setup. In-app purchases allow you to unlock other game boards too.
Lucky Nugget Casino
A casino mobile app that allows you to host a casino themed party in your own home and either bring the glamour of a real venue to your house party, or let you try out some slots and classic card games for the chance of real wins, before you hit a casino in the real world.
