Pep up your holiday festivities with these virtual holiday games

The holiday season may be a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it with some games and fun! Here's some of our all-time festive favorites you can play with Whereby.

What am I?

What am I, a party favorite, can be just as fun on screen as in person. And keeping the element of surprise in a virtual version is made easy with this random word generator (and ensures there’s no cheating). Use it to pick a word or phrase, and then act it out for your guests. You can even mute yourself when it’s your turn, to make sure you don’t give anything away.


If you want to change things up a little and rise up to the challenge, you can draw instead of act out the words. It’s easy for everyone to join and can be done directly in your Whereby room. Split the group in half so you know who’s in which team, open the Miro integration, use the random word generator and start doodling! Your team will have to try and guess your creations.

Two truths and a lie

The holidays are all about spending time with the people you love… but how well do you actually know them? Two truths and a lie is an easy way to get everyone laughing as well as upping your knowledge on your nearest and dearest.. Ask everyone to write down two truths and a lie about themselves and get ready to giggle. Use our new spotlight feature so that each person can be in the limelight when it’s their turn to mislead everyone.


Bingo is an all-time classic that is sure to get everyone’s competitive streak going. Thanks to Pinterest, there are plenty of bingo templates available online. Send the templates to your guests ahead of time so that they’ll all be ready when that first number (or word) is called.
