Among Us Is The New Game To Get

Despite Among Us coming out almost 2 years ago, It has become one of the most popular fall 2020 games. It has risen in popularity due to so many people having nothing else to do during this pandemic. You can play with friends or other people online. It is the perfect game to play if you need to take a break just sit down and play a game for ten minutes. It is easy to play with friends you just type in their game code and you’re in. It is fun, exciting, and is very easy to play and the best part is it’s free on certain devices on others its only $5.00.

Even though it is very popular the game play itself is pretty simple. You play with 4-10 players trying to complete tasks. The twist is that there are 1-3 impostors (depending on which games you join) that try to kill everyone else without getting caught. After a body is discovered or someone calls an emergency meeting everyone takes a vote on who they think the impostor is. You can chat with the other players to try to convince them who the impostor is but beware the impostor can try and trick you. Whoever has the most votes at the end of the meeting gets eliminated and this keeps happening until all the impostors are dead or if everyone else is dead besides the impostors.

The most interesting part of this game is convincing others who the impostor is. You have to be careful what you say or you will be eliminated. Friends can help you or can turn on you and help others take you out. You also have to watch out for the killer if someone is being suspicious you might want to get out of there. Even though this game is about finding killers it is a fun game for you and your friends to play together and have a good time.
