Once you've got everyone on, one of you can go to the local option and then host the game.

That should be everything you need to know about playing with friends in Among Us! The game really is best when you play with people you know because everyone will be trying to outwit each other and you will know each others personalities. This makes trying to be devious a bit more fun when you can pull a fast one on your friends. However, just try to not take the game too seriously, you don't want to lose someone you care about because they voted you out even if you weren't the impostor!
