Being stuck in quarantine means we can’t hangout with our friends like we used to. With our current situation, it seems like it’ll be a long time before we can meet our pals as if everything’s normal. However, that shouldn’t stop us from having fun with our barkada. There are solutions that make it possible for us to meet online.
Thanks to these apps and websites, you can finally throw an online party for you and your barkada!

Even after the enhanced community quarantine lifts, bars will remain closed under the general community quarantine. If you miss grabbing a drink with your friends, simply conduct the session via Zoom. Grab some booze and host an e-numan session there. Catch up with your friends while you drink in your respective homes.

Psych! Outwit Your Friends
This trivia game allows you to connect with friends and answer questions about random topics! Simply connect by sharing the party code and you’re good to go. While this is reminiscent of trivia nights, this game puts a twist on this format because players make up fake answers to real trivia questions, and then you get points for guessing the real one.
