Game Center: max number of players per game multiplayer

Hello All,

First post here. Hi Im looking to develop a multiplayer game. I have it speced and wiredframed and I am now just looking at the best way to implement the multiplayer aspect. Ideally it would be 2-4 players. It is turn based and eventually I would love for it to end up on Android and do cross os games.

However, Game Center is a free option and for a first release, might be the way to go. I am, however, having trouble finding the right information for my question

Q: How many players, max, does game center support per game?

I was told 2, but I have seen a few places that it is up to 4. I tried googling but cant seem to find the right phrase to use to find what I need. Can one of you guys help me out here?

It supports up to 4 (without requiring a server or something)

Search "maxplayers" in that document.
