IOS asynchronous games thread

Post by Torf »

Anyone fancy playing any of the asynchronous games online?

I'm particularly thinking of Agricola but will try/play anything within reason.

If a few of us are interested I'll get a game set up.

Let me know your playdek username here. Mine's geoffmarchment.

I did play a few games on Agricola and understand it, but still can't fully get to grips with it as easily as I would if I had the physical version in front of me. I'm more likely to up for a game of Carcassonne myself.

I could be tempted by a game of Carcassonne for sure!

I'm Spatho on Game Center. I've added Joober and Steve. What's the etiquette on frequency of moves? I.e. Leaving it a few hours or occasionally a day or two before making your move?

With me it may take a day or so sometimes if that is ok. Depends on how much real life gets in the way.

I have both TTR Pocket and TTR on my iPad. As they're both technically separate apps, do they allow cross play? In other words... Do we all need to play the same version?

I have them both too and no, they don't allow cross play. Pocket has asynchronous online play with no chat, the iPad version only has simultaneous online play with text chat but does have cross play with the Steam version I believe.

Ok, I'm in. If memory serves me correctly, TTR can be a little flaky with notifications, so if I don't take my turn for ages it will probably be because I didn't know it actually was my turn.

Is the game I started still active? I had to close the app and now it's not showing anywhere when I open it.
