Here's the example of how Chess/Checkers would look: http://cultofmac.cultofmaccom.netdna...2/10/emoji.jpg

Takes longer to set up, but once the emojis enter into the "recently used" tab it shouldn't be too bad. I'd still prefer a board game genius of some description to come up with a new game though. There must be some around here considering the great games we see on the app store, but I guess most want to concentrate on putting ideas into something that'll earn them money.

Holy smokes, that's awesome. You could also play 'Go' or 'GoMoku' pretty easily with this setup as well.

Now you got the game designer balls in my head rolling... Let me stew on it and get back to ya. I'll see what I can come up with! We can test and improve it on the forums.

You could also play a simple word game similar to Chain Reaction. One person types a phrase and the next person uses the last word to start a new phrase.

Example:
Player1: House fly
Player2: Fly away
Player1: Away game
Player2: Game over

Whoa, the thought of playing games over iMessage never even crossed my mind! Gotta try this one sometime.

What's away game?
Game boy
Boy toy
Toy box
Box cutter
Cutter..emo?

It is quite run/additive, but it's hard to regulate, any two words could be link worthy.

Speaking of iMessage, someone should start a true test user group here for people who want to be able to chat while playing. Especially in helping get games started. I never know who's playing what when. It would make setting up (and progressing through) asynchronous games like Ascension or a 4X game a lot easier
