“Among Us” is a big hit among teens and many enjoy playing this game with a big group of friends because it is much more fun to try and find out who the imposter is when playing with friends. When playing with a big group, having a poker face is essential because players do not want to give anything away. “Among Us” was released in 2018 by a company called Innersloth, but did not become popular until fall of 2020. The game was widely shared on Tik Tok and that is where its fame started. The game is played with a maximum of 10 players and there is always at least one imposter. The imposter’s job is to kill the crewmates without being seen and then try to convince the other players that they are not the imposter. The crewmates’ jobs are to complete tasks, try not to get killed, and find out who the imposter is. 

There are many options in the game such as different maps to play on, having 1, 2 or 3 imposters, choosing the color and hat the characters can wear. This makes the game a little bit more fun and more creative to players. This game is also user friendly for people of all ages because there is a censor chat feature. 

This game is suggested for anyone looking to play with their friends and be their own detective in a way. One downside is that sometimes the game can have a lot of glitches such as randomly kicking a player out of the game. Everyone should download this game and give it a try for themselves!
