There are many more games to come, but currently, these texting games have become the talk of the town. There is no need to download these apps from the App Store or Play Store, and you can start playing these via SMS or any other chat app.
Here is the list of some of the best texting games that you can get your hands on:
This was one of the most classic and popular games as it used to air on both radio and television. This game is very simple to play, but it also demands your attention. Either of you has to think of any person or object, and then the other person has to ask questions until they figure out which person you are thinking about. You can include variations like food, songs, artist, actor, etc.
1 Lie, 2 Truths
This has become a very common and popular game in recent times. Begin this game by sending three sentences about yourself, in which there has to be one lie or false sentence and two truths related to you, to your friends, cousins, or any other family members. They will have to guess which one is the lie or false statement about you. In the next round, you’ll have to guess their lie. This will help them know you better and vice versa.
This is one of the most trending game right now. You will find a lot of people playing this game to create TikTok videos. All you have to do is start by typing any line out of your favorite song lyrics. The next person who received your message has to guess the song and complete the lyrics. You can add variations by saying dialogues or long monologues, and they will have to guess them correctly, and in the next round, the same goes for you.
Where am I
This is one of the most interesting games to play with your best friends and siblings. When you step out to any place that your best friend or sibling is familiar with, start giving them the description of your surroundings, and they will have to guess at which place you are standing. You can play this game inside your house as well. Add variations by dropping some hints about the dining area, living room, kitchen, or their room, or any place of your choice.
If you are an overthinker or a daydreamer, you must be aware of the concept when you think of multiple possibilities and what ifs’. Then you start weaving scenarios circling around that ‘what if’ popping in your mind. Similarly, one person has to text the others with a ‘what if’ question and ask them what they will do in that scenario. Mind that there is no right or wrong answer, it is only meant to be a fun game to surf through their subconscious mind.
As the name suggests, you are going to build a list but competitively. Firstly, choose any genre or topic such as actor, movie, series, places, etc. and then each player has to take turns to name something that belongs to this genre. And the twist is that the last person to name/add the last thing to the list out of that genre or topic wins.
It is quite an easy game to play to test the IQ of yours and your friends. Playing it in a chatting app will be more fun. You can ask general knowledge questions from the person, and they will have to give correct answers. You can choose any alternative for when they or you don’t answer the questions correctly. You can also choose to increase the level of questions after each round.
Kiss, Marry, Kill
You must have seen this game in various talk shows, where the host names three people and asks questions. You have to do the same thing with your friends, asking them about any set of three people. You can create or add variations to this game to make it more interesting and intense.
These games can be played on both feature phones and smartphones between two or more people. Some of them are simple and easy, while others are quite complex to play. One common thing between these games is that you can type about only 160 characters at a time. But if you are using a chatting app, you can get more characters to play with, and it also gives you the freedom to go back and forth while playing with different people at a time.
