5 of the best phone games to play with your kids
Emoji Band Names: This game is super simple. Guess the band or singers names that the emojis represent. Can you guess this one?
Bitmoji Tennis: As tennis mania hits Australia, Snapchat has launched a brand new 'Bitmoji Tennis' game – Snapchatters can train solo, challenge a friend to a match, or hit the courts with a group of friends for a round of winner-takes-next. Set to be the deuce-iest game yet.
20 Questions: Taking a modern approach to the original by going digital. Player one thinks of an object or person whilst player two fires up to 20 questions via text message to narrow down the possibilities. Player one can only answer yes or no.
Where am I?: Each player can share a selection of images and clues of their surroundings to help their fellow challenger guess where they are. Once someone guesses right, or your opponent can't guess, flick on Snap Maps to reveal all.
Tell a Story: This is a perfect multiplayer game – that requires a lot of imagination. One person starts with "once upon a time" and then the players take turns to build on the responses (a great one for the family chat group). You can decide the boundaries – how many responses you are allowed, or how many words in each response.
