THE TOP 5 PARTY GAMES FOR A RAINY DAY BBQ

If you’ve mislaid your dusty old board games and are looking for something to entertain your guests whilst the rain is chucking it down this summer, then you can now just pick up your mobile or tablet and enjoy a whole feast of entertaining games to play with your mates. Here are some of the best games available on the iPhone if you get stuck indoors this summer.

DANCE PARTY
If you can’t wait to get down and strut your funky stuff, or are looking for more of a fun post-feast health and fitness regime that will get you up and moving after your seasonal excess, then Rolocue’s Dance Party will certainly help you burn off some calories. The app uses rolomotion to track your movements as you attempt to bust some moves in the exciting dance battles. You can challenge other players and even airplay the action onto your TV or Mac.

 

POKER
Bored of breaking out the old poker set and having to clear up the chips? Then try out the new version, each person signs-up to a Poker game and enters the same server room. You can play on your mobiles so nobody has to worry about pulling a “Poker Face”. There are also some great variations on the games, which add in additional rules to throw even the most seasoned poker player off their game. You don’t even have to spare with your money as you can play for free at Red Flush Canadian casino, all the fun without the threat of losing money.

MONOPOLY
For those who have a strong appreciation for the classics and the more traditional board games will be pleased to know that a number of retro titles have now been tweaked to give us a virtual alternative to enjoy playing on our iPhones wherever and whenever we choose. Monopoly is just one of the many traditional games now available as an app meaning you can buy and sell properties and avoid jail easier than ever.

HEAD’S UP
The brainchild of American chat show host Ellen DeGeneres this fun and pretty addictive game for the iPhone and iPad is the perfect way in which to pass the time with family or friends over the seasonal period. You simply place your device on your forehead for the opposing player to view and then he or she must describe the word for the holder to guess. If you guess it right you flick the device up and if incorrect you flick down each trying to accumulate the best score from a range of great categories.

EVIL APPLES
Not for Children! This filthy adult card & party game inspired by Cards against humanity is a hilarious way to get debates going in the house hold. You will soon forget about the crappy weather outside as you and your friends debate on what exactly Bill Nye the science guy was doing to whos mother.
