Also, you’ll spend some quality time with them. So I would suggest you give it a try with your friends, and I ensure that you wouldn’t regret it.

2. Word Game

This game will be straightforward if you are useful while dealing with words. Games require two to three players in general, but this game can be played only with one of your friends. The terms of this game are straightforward. You have to start the game by writing an engl8sh word that begins with A. And then your partner has to say a word which starts with the end letter of the name which you registered.

You have to carry on this way. Again you’ll have to say a word that starts with the end letter of the word that your friend said. So you can win this game if you have a good treasure of words in your vocabulary. This would be interesting and tricky. You have to put pressure on your mind to recall words. Also, this game would boost up your language skills.

When you are bored and want to do something productive, you can play this game with your friend. And you may play this with more than one friend, and the game will continue in a cyclic order.

3. Know Your Song

Now, this sounds interesting, know your song. This game includes pun with some famous songs. In this game, you will have to send a short audio clip to your friend of a piece, and your friend has to recognize it within a certain period. You may keep deadlines according to your comfort, may it be 20 seconds or 30 seconds.

You don’t have to send the song’s chorus to your friend else he’ll recognize it quickly. You have to send just a music note or a few lines from the beginning or end of the song. This game will come out to be a packet of amusement. This game will also test your knowledge of songs.

Generally, a music lover would win this game, but still, everyone can try. Though everyone doesn’t like singing, they all like songs. You would enjoy this game. Also, there is no limitation on the number of players. You can play with as many friends as yours.

In the era of advanced technological games, these small games can even prove to be very fun.

4. Atlas

We have all played this game in our childhood at least once. You can even now play it with your childhood friends who are miles apart and refresh your golden childhood memories. The only difference would be, now you have to play it while texting your friend. The game is straightforward.

You have to start the game by writing the name of a place, beginning with the English alphabet A. Then, your friend has to write another word that is also a place name starting with the English alphabet B. You have to continue this until you reach the last alphabet, Z.

This game would test your geography skills, and so is the name of the game ‘Atlas.’ Since Atlas is a book that contains maps and characters of places all around the world, so is the name of the game. These games are a sort of academic activity too. It builds up your knowledge harvest.

5. Add Up A Line

If you like storytelling, then this is the best game. In this game, you have to start a story, and your friends would complete that. But you don’t have to tell the whole story. You have to speak one line, and your friends would continue it by adding up a line.

You will say one line, and then your friend will add another line according to him, which could suit the situation, and then another player would similarly add up another line.

The game would continue unless you all have cooked up some interesting story. This game can be fun. Just imagine you starting a story with some line and then your friend adding up to it who has no idea of the story you have to tell. The end of the game would be funny. The way your story ends is all unknown to you. Just try this game, and you will enjoy it a lot.

6. Speak The Truth

This game sounds like truth and dare. The only difference is here you have to tell the truth, and there is no dare work. In this game, you have to ask one question from your friend, and he has to answer it honestly. This game of questioning your friend can make it very interesting as you can ask anything you wish and know their secrets.

You have to put forward a question and expect a genuine reply from your friends one by one. Through this game, you can also tease your friends on many accounts of truth he just spoke. This game can also be considered as the Truth and Dare lite version. Try this game while texting and enjoy the fun and happy aura.

7. Emoji Fight

This sounds very interesting. This is one of my personal favorites. When you don’t have anything to chat about or are just experiencing boredom, start playing emoticon fight with your friend. This game is very amusing and fun. You have to reply to an emoji with another emoji in order and sync.

It examines your creativity at using emoticons along with texts. Simple texting becomes tedious for a person to read. If you wisely use emoticons in your chat, it makes it exciting stuff. So this game will ensure that you are skilled at texting and using emoticons.
