While the world is stuck in quarantine, many have turned to virtual events and resources to keep their minds busy and maintain a sense of “normal”.
One thing that many people don’t realize is how many games are available to play online and that you can play interactively with family and friends to stay connected while you keep yourself and your loved ones safe by staying in quarantine.
There are literally hundreds of gaming websites out there to choose from, so we’ve just compiled a list of a handful for you to check out:
These will get you started, but you should also check out interactive games like Words With Friends on your smart devices that will allow you to play with your friends and family, as well.
Here are also some safety tips to keep you safe while surfing the web for free games:
- Never click on ads or download anything from a gaming site to your computer. If the game produces a pop up window that says you need to download something in order to play, just exit out as it could be malware.
- Don’t ever give away any personal information about yourself to another player when you’re playing strangers online.
- If a gaming website asks you to create an account, choose a username that keeps your identity anonymous.
- You should also be aware that some games will allow you to play for free up until a certain level, then ask for a payment
Playing games like this can help keep your brain sharp, keep you connected to the outside world, and help your social distancing time go much quicker.
