Up to four of you can play Tap Tap Party. It consists of a selection of delightful racing games, and you play by touch using your Siri Remote, iOS device, Apple Watch, or MiFi controller.

The games are highly visual with a range of cutely hilarious player characters and nicely designed scenes. What’s compelling about this collection is that each game is bite-sized and, despite the cuteness of its execution, the gameplay is difficult

This well-received casual game is fun for a family party. It manages to be both highly addictive and deeply frustrating — and a real challenge for everyone.

SketchParty TV

SketchParty TV is similar to Pictionary. Each of two teams can have up to eight players per team. Each player gets five words to draw in two minutes.

You don’t draw on the television, of course, so you need to use a compatible iPad or iPad Pro with AirPlay Mirroring enabled. As the player draws on the iOS device, the image appears on the TV screen.

The object of the game is for your team to guess the word you are trying to draw (so, no peeking). The team with the most points wins. It’s a fun, participative, and competitive game everyone can enjoy, and it encourages your party guests to show their creative sides.

Just Dance Now

Want something a little more physical? If you're a mover and shaker, Ubisoft’s instant classic, Just Dance Now has you covered. Play with friends or on your own. The game offers 300 tracks for dancing, although you need to pay to access some of them.

When you dance, you hold the Apple TV Remote or an iOS device running the Remote app in your right hand and try to imitate the moves the person you see on the screen is making.

You earn points for getting the movement right, and you can use these points (or pay) to unlock more tunes. There is also an online mode in which you play head-to-head against other people playing the game.

Fibbage XL

From the makers of Don’t Know Jack, Fibbage is a party game with a difference: You bluff and lie your way to victory while figuring out when someone is lying to you.

The game’s based on real-world stories, which means some of the outrageous stories you tell aren’t lies at all. The questions appear on the screen, and each player enters a lie. Then you all get to decide if any of them are true.

Gameplay is fast and incredibly addictive. Each round consists of only seven questions, but you can't stop playing. The action takes place on the TV screen and is controlled using a smartphone or tablet.

Party Pong

For smaller get-togethers, Party Pong for two players keeps the occasion entertaining. In this classic Beer Pong game, you bounce ping pong balls into red cups. Control the angle of your shot with the remote and make the toss with a flip of your finger as you play head-to-head with another person. Each player shoots towards his or her own set of cups. The first person to clear all the cups wins. The action is fast paced in this arcade-style game.
