Best gaming apps this winter
Scrabble is one of the most popular board games to play - and the cause of many a family argument over the festive period! But now you can play it online with friends as well. Scrabble is over 80 years old but it's been given the technological revamp that it needed. Being able to play from a mobile app means that you can play with friends anywhere in the world.
The experience is as close to playing the real thing as you can get on a mobile device. It feels so good to be able to play this wholesome board game with people who you can't see in real life.
Christmas time is the time for quizzes, so why not brush up on your quiz knowledge and get ahead of the competition? Kahoot is one of the best quiz apps out there as you can create your own quizzes.
Finding quizzes online is a great way to entertain relatives or friends. But having a tailor made quiz is even better! Kahoot allows you to pick and choose certain topics as well as different answer variations such as true or false or multiple choice.
You can even host these quizzes online which is perfect if you have loved ones who live overseas. Kahoot creates a unique PIN that you can share with your friends so that only you are able to join.
Virgin Games is the perfect gaming app for those who like to make their gaming a little more interesting. Mobile casino gaming is gaining more and more popularity and this is one of the best apps you can choose from.
The choice of casino games on this app are seemingly endless. You'll never run out of games to play and you could even branch out and try something new.

You can even access live casino games on Virgin Games so you never feel like you're missing out on the live action atmosphere. Playing at a live casino can turn your living room into a casino - without having to move a muscle.
Uno has been a firm family favorite for years and you're bound to find a pack of Uno cards in the back of everyone's cupboard. But there's always cards missing or they're ripped beyond repair.
That's why you should download the Uno app instead. Rather than having cards that are likely to go missing or have something spilled on them, you can play on your phone.
Similarly to Kahoot, you can play virtually so anyone can join in no matter where they are. Uno comes with a text and talk function so that you're able to communicate throughout the game.
8 Ball Pool
One game you wouldn't expect to translate into the virtual sphere is pool. It's usually reserved for pubs and, if you're very lucky, someone's house. But this active sport has been turned into a virtual game for you to enjoy.
You can play against strangers who are already ready to play online. But you can also link up your Facebook account to the app and play against your pals.
It might take a second to get used to playing online, but once you do, you'll never look back!
Another popular board game you can play online is Monopoly. As is the case with most board games, the pieces go missing, the board is breaking and half the money is missing.
But when you play online, there's none of these issues to worry about! Playing via the Monopoly app means that everyone can get involved, whether they're in the room with you or not.
There are also different versions of the game that you can play with ease via the app. It can turn this well loved game into something new for the family to try.
