5. General Knowledge Test

This is one of the best games on the list. You must be wondering why? This game is really fun and my favourite past-time. Ask mathematical or logical questions to test who’s intelligent or their thinking capabilities, this also helps in improving your critical thinking skills. This becomes more exciting when you play in a group between 2 different teams.

Remember: If your bro is replying late, trust me he is googling for the answer.

6. 20 Questions 

20Q is a very old popular TV game show (1949–1955). This is another classic interesting past-time that you can play virtually using the WhatsApp messenger app. This is a kind of guessing/predicting game that could be played over your mobile phone as well between 2 players’ in a direct message or multiplayer in a WhatsApp group.

Rule to play 20 Question Quiz games:

As the name suggests only 20 questions can be asked, not more than that, and answers have to be in yes/no or sometimes you can use adverbs like “Sometimes,” usually,” or “rarely” to give your opponent a clue.

#Person1: You have to think about place, person, object, or anything. #Person2: he will ask you 20 questions over text to guess what that thing is and you have to reply with just Yes or No.

At the end of 20 questions, if the predicted correct answer then they will win.

7. Name, Place, Animal, Thing

There is only one rule to play this mind booster game and this is Speed, you have to be superfast to win. This can help you improve your vocabulary.

If you are playing this through a message then you have to be fast in texting. If video calls then writing.

Note: You can include 8 participants in a WhatsApp group video or voice call at a time.

Oh! You don’t know how to play “Name, Place, Animal, Thing” but this is the same game from your school days.


One has to count a-z then someone from the participants will say stop. For example, if you stopped at the word ‘m’ then everyone would have to write a name starting with m, a place starting with m, and so on.

8. I Spy

I Spy is on the interesting game, because it requires patience to take this challenge. The real test of this game is your concentration and your presence of mind. This works as a catalyst and makes any conversation interesting and exciting.

You can also share this game as a WhatsApp story challenge and ask your contacts to answer.

It helps you improve your focus, attention, and memory.

You will be given a picture and you have to find out what is missing in that image or where an object is.

9. Kiss Marry Kill

I can’t recommend “Kiss marry kill” to play with your homies but you can definitely play with your schoolmate or collegemate.

Here is the rule:

You have to select three people (mutual friends, teacher, celebrities, etc.), and your opponent has to choose whom he wants to Kiss, which one to marry, and which one to kill.

Put them in dilemma, give difficult names to confuse. for example the name of friends in the group, favourite actor/actress name, etc.

10. Sher-o-Shayari

It is one of the simplest yet the most nerve wracking games to play on WhatsApp! This is the best game for you if you are Indian and if there are girls in your WhatsApp group. You can also play this game if you want to entertain someone over text.

First you have to bring out your inner poet and text your friend a shayari of your own, then he has to text you back a shayeri in the same rhyming sequence. To make the game even more interesting, you can even set up a time limit, and each one of you would have to write his/her shayari within that time!

11. Riddles

Another one of the most simple yet entertaining games to be played on whatsapp with your friends would be ‘solving riddles’!

You could give each other mind twisting questions that are hard to decipher but seem extremely easy once they are answered! And the one who solves the most of them in the specified time limit, wins! Not only is it a fun game but also one which is pretty challenging.

12. Unscramble

Unscramble is yet another game that you might need to use your wits for.

This game involves you imagining a word and texting your friend individual letters that comprise the word in a scrambled up manner. Now all that he needs to do is unscramble the letters to make out the word that you originally imagined, and if he/she is right, they score a point!

13. What Would You Do (WWYD)

Now this is a game that really tests your imaginative capabilities and is simultaneously fun to play.

First either you or your friend have to think of a random situation and blurt it out to the other person, and ask them what they would do, if they were currently in the same scenario/situation. Now the opponent has to quickly figure out an answer and tell you what exactly he would do if he was currently in the scenario that you just presented to him!

14. Would You Rather

This game is a great time pass and also might help you find out similar interests that you share with your friends.

Here you need to ask your friend a question by giving them two options and ask them which one would they rather pick. They have to answer in either or, there is no ‘in between’! While at this game, you both might just ask each other the same questions once in a while, and who knows, you might just find out how similar you both are.

Each of you has to type in a random sentence while spelling it backwards, and the other has to correctly guess what you are trying to say.
