3 Ways to Stay Connected From Your Couch

Connecting with friends and coworkers over the internet is now easier than ever. Video chatting allows us to take a virtual seat in any living room and break out the board games and wine glasses. So set up your camera, pick a great background from the comfort of your Southern Village Apartment, and invite your friends to join the fun and stay connected! 

Host an Online Game Night / Happy Hour

There are tons of games you can play online with your friends and coworkers for free! Whether you’re looking to play Cards Against Humanity, Scattergories, or Piccolo, all of these free games are just a keyboard click away. Simply create a new game with each player’s name and share your screen with your friends via the online video chat portal. Most of these games also allow you to invite your friends through a generated link. If you’re feeling boozy, feel free to add a drinking aspect to each of these games. Happy hour might just last all night as you work your way through each of these wacky games. 

Jump into an Online Wine Tasting 

Using the online app Drizly, you can order premium wines, beers or liquors to be delivered to your apartment in just 2-3 days. So hit up the group chat, pick out the bottle of your choice, and place your order. Once it arrives, jump on a video chat for an uncorking and online wine tasting! If you want to go the extra mile, make sure to dawn your fanciest outfit and only refer to each other as master sommeliers!

Plan a Virtual Scavenger Hunt 

A great way to stay connected with your coworkers, friends, or family is to host your very own virtual scavenger hunt. To start, one person needs to be the leader and create a list of six to eight items that you may or may not have around your apartment. For example, a sewing needle, a watering can, colored pencils, etc. Once you announce what item the group has to find, watch as your friends, family, or coworkers sprint away from their computer screens in a desperate hunt through the drawers and cabinets of their apartment. Bonus points for the first one back to the screen each time with the correct item! 

You’re always just a few clicks away to stay connected to your friends or coworkers so keep the fun times flowing and the parties alive from your apartment living room.
