Lockdown might mean we're unable to leave the house, but over the past couple of weeks we've been treated to a whole host of virtual ways to have fun, including online club nights and pub quizzes.
Now, adding to the list of lockdown activities, you can play Cards Against Humanity with your mates online. Yep, we know what we're doing on Friday night.
The infamous party game, which is always a crowd pleaser, has been set up virtually on playingcards.io.
It might sound tricky to recreate but it's actually really straightforward. All you need to do is head to the website, 'create a room' and then invite friends via a shareable link.
Once everyone has been invited, players will be able to see a virtual screen with both their own white cards and the black question card.
It's also a good idea to set up a video chat of some sort separately, to bring the game to life. Try Houseparty, where you can chat to seven other mates at once.
Then, simply pour a drink and start playing!
The rules are exactly the same as the real-life version of the game, but if you need a recap, the game requires at least four players, but is best played with 6-8 people.
Each player will need to be dealt 10 of the white 'answer cards' each. You'll then take it in turns to select a black 'question card' which needs to be read out loud by whoever picks it up.
The idea is that each player then looks through all of their white answer cards and chooses the funniest, most bizarre answer to the question on the black card.
Once each player has submitted their card, the person selecting (also referred to as the 'Card Czar') must shuffle the white cards before selecting their favourite answer.
The person with the winning card gets an 'awesome point' and whoever has the most points at the end of the game (which ends when you decide) wins.
We've got a feeling we could get hours of fun out of this...
