Any Great Games To Play With/Against My Daughter on Two Android OS Devices?
June 17, 2012 6:15 AM   Subscribe

My 8yo daughter (in a few weeks) and I love playing Plants vs. Zombies, Angry Birds and other games on Android. We play them on my Xoom, Kindle Fire, and HTC Thunderbolt (phone). Are there any good games like these (not first person shooters, please. She's 8 and we're Quaker) that would allow us to play against o with each other, one on the Xoom and the other on the Kindle?

Draw Something comes to mind, as well as several wordy turn-based games: Scramble With Friends, Hanging WF (like hangman), Scrabble (or Words WF).

Fruit Ninja & Cut the Rope are favorites in our house.

Hero Academy is one you can play against one another. And, yes, Draw Something is great.

nthing drawsomething...also try searching the google market for '2-player games'...there are tons of really great board games that will come up (parchisi, connect 4, chess,checkers,backgammon and etc)...not sure about 2-screen support tho...'2 player ripples' and 'glow hockey' are fun too...

belladonna - Can we play cut the rope against each other on different machines? She loves it,and I think it's OK.

Hmm. I'm not sure. I'd probably just play simultaneously on 2 machines & see who gets the highest score, or finishes the level the fastest.
