7 Best iMessage Games and How to Play Them With Friends.
If you’re bored and your conversations with your friends seem to have died down, why not play a game? If two users are using iMessage, there are many different games available.
In case you’re unsure of what to play, we’ve rounded up the best iMessage games and figured out how to play them in such slow moments.
GamePigeon is a great way to collect a huge selection of iMessage games in one place. You can play games like 8 Ball, Sea Battle (which is just a modified battleship), Basketball, Archery, Darts, and more.
GamePigeon is free to play, but there are a few microtransactions in the game itself, for example for the new templates in Paintball and 8 Ball.
All you have to do is download Game Pigeon from the App Store and then select the game you want to play from the iMessage menu. He will send an invitation to another person. Once they agree, the fun begins.
Moji Bowling is a great two player option when you want to get rid of that bowling itch but can’t get to the bowling alley. The game is as cute as it is addicting, with bowling balls and pins coming to life as you play. Controlling it is simple: you simply pull the ball and let it fly by swiping left or right to add spin.
Moji Bowling is free to download from the app store, but you don’t need to have two players to play. The game has a solo mode where you can practice the game before challenging your best friends in an iMessage bowling tournament.
Of course, GamePigeon is a kind of mini golf, but not as extensive as Mr. Putt. There are four different courses in the game, each with a different theme. None of the shots are straightforward and require you to lift off the wall and perform other tricks to get the shot with as few shots as possible.
As with other iMessage games, all it takes to play Mr. Putt is to download the game first and then select it from the iMessage menu.
There are many quizzes available on iOS, but few are real challenges or can be played entirely in iMessage. Simple little things are different. It features multiple choice questions from categories like history, pop culture, and more. You only have a few seconds to answer each question, so cheating and searching for an answer is impossible.
The essence of Simple Trivia is to answer more questions correctly than your opponent. As with other iMessage games, there’s nowhere to start. Just download the game from the App Store and start playing iMessage.
Truth Truth Lie
Truth Truth Lie is a new twist on the classic game. The premise is that you make two true statements about yourself (or whatever) and one false statement, and the other players must guess which one is false. While this is a great party game, it’s also a lot of fun to play with one person.
On the other hand, you may have to get creative with your statements if you are playing with someone who knows you well. Truth Truth Lie lets you videotape yourself if you don’t want to print statements either. Just download it from the store and give it a try.
Cobi Arrows is a kind of unicorn in the world of iMessage games. While most iMessage-focused games are casual, Cobi Arrows is challenging to learn and worth replaying over and over. While this game can be played just for fun, it also attracts more avid players.
The goal is simple: shoot as many arrows as possible and score as many points as possible in 30 seconds. The grid moves across the screen when pressed and held. To release the arrow, simply lift your finger. Sounds simple, but it takes a little practice to hit the bull’s-eye.
Cobi Arrows is free to play, but there are other game modes that you can unlock by watching videos or paying for the mode.
Qiktionary is a simplified version of a word guessing game. You are given a specific four-letter word to unravel. You guess the different four-letter words and notice which letters are marked. The indicator on the side shows how many letters are correct in your word.
You win in the process of elimination. By slowly narrowing down the number of letters which are correct and which are not, you can determine which cryptic word it is. A large vocabulary helps, but not necessarily.
iMessage is a great tool to stay connected and have fun. Try a few of these games and see which one you like best. Many of them compete with the larger games in the App Store for entertainment value.
