Girls just wanna have fun, and trust me when I tell you that most of the space on my phone is utilized by my favourite games du jour. Today, I want to introduce you to my newest obsession: Psych! This game has been making the rounds at a few get-togethers I’ve attended and, let me assure you, it’s worth the hype. If I had to sum it up in a sentence, I would call it Charades for the digital generation. It’s the perfect addition to any game night.
The game requires a group of 3 or more players and a fast internet connection. You create a game and choose from categories like ‘Word Up’, ‘Is That A Fact?’, ‘Movie Bluff’, and more. The basic premise of the games is fooling your friends while choosing the correct answer yourself, so it’s always a good idea to play with a larger number of people. The more options you have, the harder the game gets. The questions are ridiculous, thus allowing you to get creative with the answers you make up. Get ready to have a lot of laughs when your friends choose the most stupid, made-up answers ever!
It’s a game that requires intelligence, wit and a certain amount of deceit — all in good faith, of course.Soon enough, you find yourself fiercely competing against your closest mates. My only suggestion is to ensure that your 3G or wifi connection is on point, otherwise everyone will hate you forever. So, are you ready to Psych your pals? The app is available for iOS and Android.
