One of the best games that you can play with your families or friends during lockdown is a Secret Diary which is a good way to showcase your love to others as well as to know what your friends think about you as a person.

How to participate in this game: 

  1. Visit

  3. Secret Diary will automatically generate questions for you.
  4. A link will be generated which you need to share with those whom you want to answer these questions about you.
  5. You can share via all social media platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp, etc. or simply message the link.
  6. Once the receiver answers the questions, you can check the answers on

You can send your questions to as many people as you want. This will let you know their opinion about you and help understand each other in a better way.

Example: Some of the questions I remember when I played are:

  1. What is the one thing you want to add on in Sahil?
  2. What do you like the most about Sahil?
  3. Which color suits Sahil the best?
  4. Why do you think Sahil is important in your life?

When I read the answers filled by my wife, I got a bit emotional(happy) as I came to know that she doesn’t show but thinks a lot about me. If you are missing your buddy, this game is a good way to enjoy some togetherness with fun.

You will get a paragraph to type. Whoever has the best WPM score wins so you need to type fast. The challenge here is spelling and grammatical errors. I lost because I took much time in correcting spellings. You can chat during the race to boost or pull a leg. This makes it a fun competition. The cars moving towards the finish line will ignite excitement in you to get ahead of your friends. If you cherish typing, you can compete with others around the world online or just practice it out alone.

This game will let your time pass and ensure bonding with friends and relatives during the Covid-19 lockdown. You will know your compatibility with others via this fun activity. 

Game Guidelines:

  1. Ask your friend/opponent to select a genre. It can be movies, actors, food, country, etc.
  2. Then, tell him/her to pick 1 object from the genre but keep it as a secret. Ex: If the genre is actors, he/she can select any 1 actor. For food, any 1 dish, etc…
  3. Now, you have to guess the object by asking your opponent questions with a limit of 10 questions.
  4. The answer has to be in the form of yes/no only.
  5. If you get it right within 10 questions, you win or else your friend is victorious.

I played this one with my cousin’s sister via WhatsApp voice messages. I chose the object from the movie genre and she was on the opposite side. She asked me questions including, have you seen this movie? and Is this one of your favorites?. She cracked it in mere 5 questions and I lost(oops..). I told her that I picked this movie to let her win as she is bad at guessing(hehe).
