Top 4 virtual games to play with your family from your phone with no worry about battery life 

Distance has become far less limiting over the past few years, especially when it comes to connecting with family and friends. Video-calling a sibling from South Africa to Australia is as simple as a touch of a button. Even connecting with several family members at the same time is easy using group call functions.

While calling for a chat fills you in on the latest news, connecting with family members in a more engaging way is what brings you closer together. And one of the best ways to do that is to do fun things together, virtually.

HMD Global, the Home of Nokia phones, shares some original and super-fun things that families can do together on the virtual playground.


Have a blast playing Charades with your family, this incredibly entertaining and thrilling multi-activity allows participants to guess the word on the card that’s on the screen of the person who’s got the phone to their head, based on clues from other participants’ performances (which could include dancing, singing, acting, or sketching) before time runs out.

Lip-Sync Battle

Fancy yourself a great rock star imitator? Challenge your family members to a Lip-Sync Battle, where each person has 30 seconds to show their stuff, lip-syncing their favourite music artist.

You can create a score sheet, where everyone judges each performance based on things like accuracy of lyrics, dramatism, flair, and believability.

Karaoke King

Or drop the lip-syncing and have a full-on karaoke competition. You can find instrumental versions of your favourite song on YouTube, Smule, KaraFun or Singa. Go live on your video call and show your family that you deserve to be on South Africa’s Got Talent!

Drawing Together

So we’ve done acting, singing (and mock singing) – how about some family drawing!

There are loads of online drawing sites that you can use, like Sketchbook or WeDraw where you can do anything from relaxing doodling, to playing and learning how to draw step by step. Or go for the good old Pictionary, which is sure to ramp up the hilarity.

You’ll naturally need a screen that’s big enough to be able to see all these masterpieces, making the 6.5” screen of the Nokia C21 Plus perfect!

In It For The Long Run

With all these wonderful games you’ll be playing with your family, it’s easy to lose track of time. Luckily the C21 Plus has up to 3-day¹ battery life on a single charge! (Now that alone is worth the unbelievably affordable price of only R1,999, right?!)

What are you waiting for? Create that family WhatsApp group and get everyone ready and psyched up for the best fun together.
