3 Popular Games That You Might Not Know About

Whether you have a social event coming up and you’re looking for a fun game to play, or you’ve got a bit of time to kill and want to do something fun, here are some options for you. As I get older, I enjoy quality time with friends and family more and find games are a great way to interact while adding a little competitive nature to it. I also really enjoy online games, which can be fun to play when I can’t sleep at night or when I’m transiting in airports. If you’re looking for some new inspiration, read on to learn more about 3 popular games you might not know about:

1. Baccarat

Baccarat is a fun game that you can either play online or in person and is often popular in casinos. It’s played between two hands, the “player” and the “banker” with each hand having one of three outcomes either a tie, the bank wins or the player wins. There are a few different regional variants of the game, but because it’s essentially a one player game it makes it the perfect game to play online as you don’t need to wait around for anyone else!


This is a great game to play with a group of friends or family. All you need is a bunch of spoons (one less than the total number of players) and a deck of cards. Each player starts with four cards and the dealer takes one of their cards and then picks up a card, repeating this until someone gets four of something and they slowly take a spoon. The remaining players take spoons until someone is missing out. This player is then eliminated and you play the next round with one less spoon. Spoons is a fun, social game which doesn’t require much to get started.

3.Heads Up

This is a fun party game involving a smart phone App, meaning it’s essentially in your pocket and you can take it with you anywhere. You can choose from a variety of different categories and a player will hold the phone above their head. Then people will give clues for the player to guess the noun that they’re trying to figure out. If the player gets it right they flip it up, and if they get it wrong they flip it down. It happens over a certain amount of time and the player who gets the most points wins!
