"easy" multiplayer internet games?

My youngest wants to play some games on the Touch with her Grandpa down the road.

I've found Go Fish Multiplayer (http://appshopper.com/games/go-fish-multiplayer ), and it appears that you can pick who you want to play. It doesn't have a great rating though - so i'm not excited about blowing part of my last $2.09 iTunes credit on it! )

The FS5 games play over the internet - but you apparently can't PICK who you want to play with, which stinks. Although their Connect 4 knock-off didn't have anyone plaything this morning, so they probably would have gotten one another.

It would ROCK if she could just play Battleship with him, but that is a no-go.

The limitations are - she has a short attention span and is 5, my Dad has some physical issues that make fast moving games probably a no-go for him (thinking like a racing type of game).

Honestly, Go Fish, Tic-tac-toe, connect 4 and the like would be perfect.

If you have any suggestions i'd appreciate it.

That seems to fit your criteria.

I was looking at that today - but had ruled it out for them. But glad to hear it is good - the big kids would probably be into it (well, if i can pry it out of the oldest's hands - she is playing Catan, she got the board game for Christmas)

It does! The live thing was added since i had read the description last time - I guess i'll split the cost with her (darn kids got more iTunes money for CHristmas than I did!) and figure it out tonight.

If anyone thinks of anything else please let me know.

Thanks!!
