Can you play games on Telegram?
Telegram is superior to Whatsapp for many reasons – one of which is that you can actually play games on it! From games for 2, group games, to solo games, there are options for anyone. For most games, you will have to add a game bot to the chat or enter a game bot to select games from it. Read on for our list of fun Telegram games to play!
Best Telegram games: For 2
1. Mini-game Emoji
Did you know that you can play a game of luck with your boo or bestie with these emojis ?, ?, ?, ⚽️ and ?? Well, most of us didn’t until the Telegram mini-game emoji went viral on TikTok. For this Telegram game for 2, no bots are needed. The next time you run out of things to talk about with bae, or just want something fun to kill time – try hitting the bullseye or scoring a goal and see who wins!
Number of players: 2
How to play this Telegram game:
- Choose one of these emojis ?, ?, ?, ⚽️ and ? and send it once to your friend
- Your friend should send the same emoji back.
- For the soccer and basketball emoji, whoever’s ball scores the goal wins. For the dice emoji, the one who rolls the higher number wins. For the slot machine, you win if you get three matching slots!
Put your general knowledge to the test with Quizarium, one of the most interesting Telegram games for 2 you’ll find on the platform. The concept behind Quizarium is simple — the bot asks a question and players have to come up with the right answer as fast as possible within the one-minute time limit. The bot may release hints from time to time to help players out. However, speed is of the essence in this Telegram group game as the faster you get the right answer, the more points awarded to you. Points range from one to five, and the player who gets the most points at the end of the game wins!
Psst, the fun in this game is when players give completely irrelevant answers that will make your chat burst out in laughter! So we suggest not to take things too seriously for some lighthearted fun! Take note that this Telegram game bot results in a lot of spam, so if you aren’t in the mood to play the game, it’ll be best to mute the group chat.
Number of players: 2 and above

Hangman is one of the classic games you’d play with your friends back in school because all you need is your brain, pen, and paper. When it comes to Telegram games for 2, enter Hangbot which comes up with a mystery word for you to guess!
While you may be tempted to start spamming answers in the chat, do note that you’ll lose heart in the process if you make a wrong guess — just like the actual Hangman. The game ends when you’ve exhausted all your lives. Just like the best Wordle games, this is a great way to expand your vocabulary!

You can’t go wrong with a game of good ol’ Uno. However, there’s no need to be dealing Uno cards when you can play this all-time favourite card game on your Telegram app! The bot will deal cards to each player. Some of your cards may be greyed out but that just means these cards are not available to you at the moment. Players will take turns dealing cards that match the colour, number or symbol of the open card as indicated by the bot.
You can also click the ‘?’ button to check on the current game state, such as how many cards each of the other players possess. The first player to clear his/her hand wins the game! The best part about playing this Telegram group game via the bot is that there’s no need for you to shout ‘UNO!’ when you’ve reached your last card. The bot automatically announces it for you so you won’t be subjected to the four-card penalty!
Number of players: 2 and above

Best Telegram games (2023): For groups
You have probably played the game Polar Bear, Mafia or Murderer at some point in your childhood. The Werewolf game on Telegram allows you to relive those memories, in a more high-tech version via your favourite messaging platform!
For those who haven’t heard of this game before, here’s what this best Telegram game in Singapore is all about. You and your friends are in a village where mysterious creatures lurk. Among the group, some players will play as the werewolves who are out to kill all the villagers before the game ends. The rest of the players will be villagers. Villagers need to work together to figure out who the werewolves are so as to ‘lynch’ them before they kill off the entire population. At the end of every round, villagers will have the chance to vote for who they think the werewolf is. You can oust someone based on majority votes, so it’s crucial to pick the right person to vote for (unless you’re the werewolf)!
The bot will delegate time for the wolves and the players to discuss and make their voting choice within the chatroom. You could also play this game in real life, by making use of the bot’s role allocation but having a discussion face to face with your friends. If you enjoy playing this game, we’re sure you’ll love the game Among Us too!
Pro Tip: Once your Telegram group has mastered the basic version of the game, we suggest you up the level by playing the game in ‘Chaos Mode’. This mode adds a few other interesting characters into the mix, including serial killers, guardian angels, detectives and more!
Number of players: 5 and above

Sometimes, we just want an easy-to-play game without learning too many rules. One of the most straightforward Telegram games is Dreamersbot, which is essentially a guessing game for all ages. Players will take turns being the Lucid Dreamer, the character who gets to select an image out of a pool of options provided by the bot. The Lucid Dreamer will have to provide a hint that describes the image.
Meanwhile, all the other players act as the Dreamcatcher. The Dreamcatcher will not know which image was selected by the Lucid Dreamer and will have to deduce the answer based on the hint provided. Dreamcatchers who guess the image correctly will gain points. Win as many rounds as you can to become the overall Dreamer winner! Get creative with your hints by quoting song lyrics, movie lines or even poems to make things more exciting!
