Grab A Friend And Play

Isn't gaming better with a friend? Of course it is. Rather than online multiplayer games, these games emphasize local multiplayer. The games on this list can be played on the same device, or on the same WiFi network, for players in the same room to go head to head, or play co-operatively.

Soccer Physics

Such a dumb soccer game it's fun

Soccer Physics
Crazy Soccer

For those who like crazy physics and fast paced sports.

Soccer Physics is a hilariously dumb game that challenges you to control two different soccer players with the same button. The trouble is the players get mixed up sometimes, and you never know how they'll respond: they'll either jump, or they'll kick. Even more wacky, hilarious scenarios pop up after every goal, like slippery grass or a beach ball instead of a soccer ball. Try to get past the wackiness to score more goals than your opponent.

Why we love it

This is soccer at its funniest, with every goal and game a bit funnier than the last. The wonky controls coupled with the hilarious extra scenarios make the game silly and fun at the same time. The pixel-based graphics add in a retro flair that's a real throwback to the old-school console days.

For those who...

  • Love silliness
  • Enjoy soccer games

Not for those who...

  • Want precise control of the action
  • Don't like soccer

Why we love it

Fluxx is a fun card game where you can change the rules based on what cards you put into action.

  • Enjoy card games

Not for those who...

  • Want the rules to stay the same for the whole game
