(WHDH) — A group of New England comedians got clever with a new type of party game designed to keep friends laughing during the pandemic.

The group teamed up to launch “Anti-Social Skills,” a new kind of game that can be played virtually from the comfort of a couch.

“It sort of became this interactive, fun, like comedy game and everybody’s been playing it over Zoom,”co-creator Jon Rineman said.

Rineman, a New Hampshire native and former writer for “The Tonight Show” found himself, like many others, out of work when coronavirus hit.

“The best part is it is all pre-written,” he said.

But, with a group of friends of an appropriate age, Rineman said the new game can provide a much-needed distraction from everything life has thrown this past year.

“It’s been a good way at a time when everyone needs to feel happy to have some fun to connect and talk to people online and meet new people,”Rineman said. (Copyright (c) 2020 Sunbeam Television.
