Local multiplayer and party games have been disappearing from mainstream consoles for a while – partly due to the high acquisition cost of additional controllers, but also because most console manufacturers prefer to sell a console and a copy of a game to every player instead of letting them share.
AirConsole brings party games back by solving each one of these issues. The console is in the cloud, each game is accessible, and everything is free. So what are you waiting for? Jump into these AirConsole party game ideas to liven up your next get-together.
1. Tower of Babel
Tower of Babel is the perfect game for a group of people at a party. It’s a simple game that requires multiple players to work together to build a tower block by block. The tricky part is that lining blocks up perfectly is not exactly easier with more people in the mix. Since players have to wait a moment for their turn, you even have time for snacks in between!

Forget the hassle with remembering the cards - now you can bring the game with you everywhere. We are sure this game will be a massive hit at your next party. Once you start, it is impossible to stop (laughing). Make it into a drinking game or play it on a rainy afternoon with your best friends.
