The Best Family Game Night Apps

Some people say that phones are a distraction when it comes to spending quality time with your family. But who are they kidding? Phones are part of our everyday life, so why not incorporate them into your family time?

Here are some great family game night apps for your whole family to enjoy!

Charades! Free

With over 100 categories to choose from this version of the classic game Charades, is perfect for anybody looking to share some fun with their family. With hours and hours worth of entertainment, this free app is well worth the download.

Scrabble Free

Another family favourite: Scrabble! This version of the game features online multiplayer where you can connect with friends and family anywhere in the world so you can play them anywhere, anytime. Even better, it’s a real brain-teaser, and is therefore a great combination of both entertainment and education.

Heads up

Think of Charades and now think the opposite. In Heads up, when it’s your turn you hold the phone to your head and a word is presented on screen. Other players then have to try and explain what/who you are without saying the word, and you have to guess. Probably the best thing about the game is that it records the room while everybody mimes out the activity, making for hilarious post-game discussion.


This is our number one pick for family gaming fun. Imagine a multiplayer game of Bop It, but wrapped up in a fictitious space mission, where each person has to tell everybody else to press various buttons, shake their phones and complete any number of silly task! The game is split into missions that get more difficult as time goes on, and it’s great when – after a few missions – everybody is shouting at one another in excitement to complete the various tasks. A real heart racer!

So there you have it: our list of some of the best family game night apps. If you want to download these on the go, you might want to upgrade your data plan. Thankfully, Asda Mobile has you covered, with our Mega 30-day Christmas Bundle, where you’ll get 20GB data, unlimited minutes and unlimited texts all for the small sum of £10!
