Given that much of the world is in lockdown right now over the CoVid-19 pandemic we have seen a huge rise in people using conference calling to stay in touch with family I was introduced to this by my colleague Harris Scott Kreichman who was kind enough to invite me to a chat with his family and it was a real hoot. Hopefully after all of this pandemic situation has passed us by we can still maintain this level of contact with our friends and family who we may may not live near, and here are some great ideas for what you can do during the chat.


You don’t have to be in the same room as each other to play bingo and this makes for a really fun idea to play with the family. Online you can find ready made bingo cards as well as virtual bingo machines which will give you randomly numbered balls. All you need is someone with a little bit of humor about them to call out the numbers and then all people need to do is mark the numbers as they go, and shout nice and loud when that House comes in.

Pub Quiz

There is no reason why you can’t complete a pub quiz with the family as well, albeit without the pub! There are two ways in which you can do this, the first is that you have a dedicated quizmaster who asks the questions, alternatively you can ask each group or person to ask the questions. If you like you can think up the questions on your own, alternatively you can download them from the internet, where you will find an enormous range of quiz questions about a range of topics. Remember that if you are going to take it in turns to ask questions that you must ensure each round is worth the same points so that nobody is at a disadvantage.

Board Games

There are a whole host of board games which you can still play, despite the fact that you are not together with your family .Take a game such as Monopoly for example, all you need to do is have one person or group with the board and the money divided up, and then roll the dice for each member who will then decide on how to proceed. This requires quite a bit from the person with the board but it can still be a great deal of fun. You can also play some card games such as poker, which are ideal for this scenario. Naturally you are going to have to put your faith in the fact that everyone is honest and assuming that they are, you can have a g great time playing cards with the family.

Charades is also a great idea and a lot of fun!
