Soqquadro is another option for families and friends that want to play an interactive board game on their mobile devices.
I have to say when I first tried the app, I was a bit confused but after reading the developer’s site I had a better understanding.
So how do you play? From the developer’s site:
– The App will show a card on your smartphone or tablet, with some characteristics
– You will go around the house to look for an object that satisfies those characteristics
– Every player has an avatar on the app that keeps the scores of all the objects found
– During the game the app will call for various challenges
The final winner is proclaimed by the app and then confirmed or denied by all the players, that will check all the treasures found by everyone. The game does provide the rules in the game if you need a better explaination.
So Soqquadro is a game you use your mobile device for, but it is played in real life. So the bottom line of the game really seems to be you can play this game anywhere without having to worry about bring the cards with you.
The game definites works on your thinking and creativity skills. The cards will show you a letter, a physical trait, and a color and you will need to go around and find someething that satisfies the card. Now the game allows for varying the difficulty and number of players.
When you are first to find something to satisfy the card, then you get the points and a new card is chosen. The winner will have to have 16 points.
This is a different type of game but that is a good thing. This is a great game for families to have when traveling as you can play it anywhere you want and it will allow up to 6 people.
