Online games with friends

Morning All,

Friend of mine got an Ipad 2 yesterday but is housebound.

Can anyone recommend some good games that I can play online with him that aren't FPS? A few of us have Ipad 2's so thought it would be a good way to interact with him and keep occupied as there will always be one or two of us online who will play a game with him.

He's a big poker and board game fan.

Thanks for taking the time to read the post!

Loads of online games out there, loads I probably don't know about.
Depends what you are looking for:

Order and Chaos Online is basically WOW for iOS, good for a long time play session and is more social than the others due to chat options and mostly coop play.
Racing you can have death rally, sonic racing, real racing 2, asphalt 6, reckless racing 2
Street Fighter 4 volt is online and pretty cool.
For football/soccer try first touch soccer or dream league (bascially the same game, and fifa isnt online).
Shooters that aren't FPS could be top down games like bullet time (coop and competetive) and deadlock online, or 3rd person like star warfare or the soon to be upgraded desert zombie (not online yet, but coop will b here soon)

Then theres a load of asynchronous stuff like hero academy or ravenmark, not really got into it but theres a whole thread on it somewhere

What other genres you looking for, I'll see what else I can think of, but those are the online games I have. Wouldn't know about poker or board games, but i think one of the monopoly games is online.

Recommends: Darkness Rush|Terra Noctis|IB2|Epoch|MC3|Shadowgun|Phoenix HD|Sonic Racing|FT Soccer|Bug Heroes|Spider-man

Oh... No FPS, eh? Well, I'm still gonna suggest - get Modern Combat 3!

But anyway, Charadium II and Disc Drivin' are one of my fav games that I can play with friends.

Gameloft Live: IDontKiIIPpl (idontkiippl without capital letters)

I make EDM music No I'm not some pro who's signed to some major lable.http://YouTube.com/okayyymc3

Thanks for the replys!

He's wheelchair bound now and only has limited use of his hand's hence why FPS are out.

We were trying to find a good Poker game to play online but WSOP seems to no longer work online.

Thanks again!

Well if your friend likes board games there's always Words With Friends and Scramble With Friends.
The first is one is basically Scrabble and the 2nd one Boggle.

Also Hero Academy of course !

Ice rage - it's one of the few games I think would be way more fun playing with someone else...

Multipong? Not sure if thats the name but it's suppose to be a good same device multiplayer game

For poker I think clickgamer made a game where u play from the iPad or something I'm not sure, Zynga is the best online one ImO. But same device poker I dunno

I assume games like checkers and chess and all would be fun

Maybe board games, ticket to ride, Carcosone,

I know there's alot more but I can't think of any ATM... If I find something esP good I'll let u know
