Competitive word games for the distant
April 12, 2020 8:40 PM   Subscribe

When my large family (70-ish parents through teen/tween niblings, but mostly my adult siblings) gets together we play things like Boggle, Scrabble, Balderdash, Bananagrams, Code Words, Apples to Apples, charades, Jackbox games, etc. We all live in different time zones. What mobile/web games should we play now, all together or in smaller groups of 2 or more?

We've done Zoom game nights, but it would be nice to have some asynchronous games since we're all on different schedules. We're probably 80% iPhone/20% Various Other OS users. What should we play?
