Similar to game nights but Strictly Come Dancing / Eurovision style film & music competitions on Zoom has been a popular with our group!

For anyone interested:

1. You get a group of you together on Zoom and everyone picks a song/film from a certain category (e.g. Christmas songs)

2. Everyone shares screen (remember to enable sound sharing too) and plays their song via YouTube.

3.Depending on your scoring format, after each song has been played, you go round everyone and they offer a score (1- 10) based on how much they like the song and so on and so on.

4. Someone keeps score on a spreadsheet or notepad and at the end tally up all the scores for all the songs and you have a winner!

5. It’s just good fun, no offence need be taken for low scores, it’s just a laugh!

Alternatively you can do it the Eurovision way where everyone plays all their songs one after the other and then at the end all songs get allocated a score from 0 – (12) (the latter number varies depending on how many people are involved) but its always good fun awarding NIL POIS! to someone
