With millions of people locked down at home due to the novel coronavirus crisis, mobile gaming is experiencing an increasing like never before. But games like Call of Duty, PUBG, and more like those are not everybody’s cup of coffee, particularly if you are looking for a game to play with your family or you may be looking to chat with your friends while playing a board game that does not require much attention.
Here is a list of six board games that you can play on your phone with your family and friends during this crisis.
This game is a bit of a modern taking on the classic game. Ludo Talent provides a Magic mode which lets you play with three powerups (+1, barrier and dice). All of these power-ups help you be able to win the game while making it more challenging for your competitors. It also features a normal mode in which you can play the game with normal rules. In addition, Ludo Talent lets you speak with each other while playing, too.
The drawback of this gaming app is that it is only available for Android, not for iOS. Apple users can download Ludo Star instead. However, remember that Ludo Star doesn’t allow you to communicate with your friends through voice.
Rento is a variant of the favorite board game Monopoly. Playing this game, you have to take your turns, purchase properties, and collect rent. Rento is available for free. It also allows you to set different rules each game, making each game you play have a different twist. Although Rento is a bit long (like monopoly), it lets you and your friends have fun at the same time playing and keep on chatting with each other, with the assistance of the in-game messenger service.
