Happy Eid and happy gaming!
Hari Raya Aidilfitri, or Eid-ul Fitr, marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, and is one of those annual festive moments where all the families, regardless of belief, gather and spend the time together.
It’s fun having every one of your extended family over and doing activities together, but when the fireworks aren’t enough and card games aren’t cutting the mustard, or if the kids are getting out of hand, it’s time to pop up the bigger guns.
Yes, I’m referring to video game consoles and those fun party games. These games are definitely fun played in a group and would guarantee tons of laughter and maybe some quarrels.
So here we go: the top party games in no particular order.
Mario Kart 8
Available on: Nintendo Switch
Mario Kart 8 is one of the best racing games to play when everyone is over. Just dock the Switch and connect it to a TV, provided the family isn’t watching any Raya dramas, and go to town.
Just remember to take a chill pill and don’t be salty. Because this game has the potential to make or break friendships.
Available on: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC
You’ll be in charge of a kitchen and will be cooking together with your friends and family. As if the traditional family dodol-stirring night ain’t enough, you’ll be working together to make sure the food is well prepared and on time
You’ll be handing out high-fives all party long as the kitchen rolls!

This ragdoll brawler is a game that’s definitely going to crack laughs around the room. I know that for sure because I had tons of fun playing this game and cried laughing.
