Fun Friday’s Among Us

Not everything has to be so serious all the time, so today I’m doing a brief review of something a little more fun that the whole family can jump into over the weekend. Today we’re going to take a look at the wholesome, family oriented, gather round the fireplace fun game, Among Us.

Among Us currently has almost 2.5 million downloads on the Google Play Store with an average rating of 4.5 stars! It’s also available on the Apple App Store and Steam with just as great of reviews on these platforms. So what makes Among Us so great? Let’s dive in and take a look!

Among Us is all about working together online with a group of friends to prep a space ship for take off. You’ll play as one of the little astronauts tasked with running around the space ship and completing simple puzzles to prepare the ship for take off. The only problem is that one of your crew mates is an Imposter

The Imposter’s only goal is to sabotage the ships take off and murder it’s crew members…

Think of it as Clue in space but not so boring.

Each game starts by joining a lobby and waiting for enough other players to join to start the match. A level is selected and all players start in the same room. At the start of the match each player is notified, in secret, if they are an astronaut or an Imposter. It’s up to everyone on the team to work together, watch each other’s backs, and get their ship ready for take off before the Imposter(s) can ruin it all.

As players move around the ship completing tasks like fixing up wires or setting buggy computer programs straight the Imposters are taking secret tunnels, cutting power to light systems, and taking other crew members out (and I don’t mean to dinner).

While astronauts are fixing up their spaceship, they may discover a KIA team member and can call an emergency meeting to discuss who the imposter might be. During this brief meeting (I’m talking like 2 minutes to try and get your shit together) team members try to discuss and determine who the Imposter is. The meeting concludes with a vote and the team member with the most votes is ejected from the spaceship. Vote wrong and you may just kill off one of your best buddies…

Among us is a great way to spend some time with family and friends. With it’s easy to pick up and understand rules, interesting mini-games, and savage ‘trust no one‘ experience it’s a solid addition to any Friday night fun. If you get a chance to download it drop me a message and we’ll go a few rounds to see whose the better Imposter!
