Free Options for Group Games

I have previously written about the motivational and engagement value (thus promoting communication) of "room based" games. Now that we have transitioned back to in-person groups, we are incorporating some distanced card play, but this tech-mediated piece still serves a purpose (kids can use their own devices, stay far apart). Jackbox is a bit pricey and I wanted to share a few free options I have tried out. 

VXN's Mutter Nonsense and Drawn Out offer good potential for building communication skills in a fun way (including joining in a paced manner, using humor, visualization, association).  Here's a trailer for Mutter Nonsense (think Apples to Apples).


I also recently discovered that Jeopardy Labs has millions of pre-made games that you can choose from, including many related to vocabulary and social skills. Choosing and using group topical interests can also be a great way to use a resource like Jeopardy Labs. Don't fully love the content of a board? Clone it and make some changes. Do I have anything else to say about Jeopardy? Stay tuned...


Speaking of play, if you're headed to ASHA Convention, come see my session next Thursday!

  2. I work in egal transcription services and this is a great idea because I do work from home, This increase in family time alone is worth having a room dedicated to games in the home. A game room in the home allows the family to spend more time together, especially when there are games that the entire family can enjoy together. Thanks man for sharing your blog, Keep it up.

  4. The project's main goal was to enhance awareness of the Arctic's evolving political, economic, and environmental conditions and to understand the effects of EU policies on the region's future. This was achieved through engaging in multidimensional dialogues and exchanging information between the EU and civil society, utilizing Impact Assessment to gather information for policymakers. The Preparatory Action project supported the EU's Arctic policy development by merging scientific data with Arctic stakeholders' insights study bay . The project underscored the urgency of co-producing knowledge via science-policy interactions in Arctic discussions, positioning the EU as a leader in conducting extensive impact assessments for Arctic policymakers.

  8. What an amazing game it is, It is no doubt a mind-refreshing activity, love playing this game so much. I should also mention that it is a little addictive game that also becomes a source of waste of time. I started playing this game for hours every day and did not even care about any other commitments even my online classes and had to visit an online class provider site to take my classes on time.
