When you picture iPhone games, Shuffleboard isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But it can be great fun.
In the following post, we will demonstrate how to use iMessage to play Shuffleboard so that you can compete with your friends the next time you are texting.
To play Shuffleboard via iMessage, you will need the GamePigeon mobile app. GamePigeon is available in the iMessage drawer. Open a conversation and select it. Then select “Shuffleboard”. Then, choose your map. Start playing with your friend or contact now.
If you are a beginner, the questions you have may overwhelm you. This guide can help you understand Shuffleboard, as well as other games that are available on iMessage.
Use the iMessage App Store to install Shuffleboard.
Shuffleboard, for iMessage games, is not available in a standalone application. Shuffleboard is only available as a part of the iMessage app store.
You can open the Messages App from your iOS device’s home screen.
Next, select any of your conversations in the Messages application screen.
Click on the grey “App Store icon” next to any message on your screen. It will then reveal the App Store options in the lower part of your screen.
You can now tap the blue icon labeled ‘App Store’ on the newly appeared app bar. You will see the iMessage shop in an additional window.
Click on the Search icon at the top of the window.
In the area provided, enter the game Pigeon. Then tap the ‘Search button’ located at the bottom-right corner of your keyboard.
You will then be asked to sign in to the App Store. Sign in with the App Store and confirm your purchase. Use your preferred form of authentication.
Note: If the GamePigeon has already been purchased in your account, you will not see the Get button but a “Cloud with downward arrow” icon.
What Are the Shuffleboard Rules?
Simple rules govern the game of shuffleboard. Two to four players are seated with wooden discs (or pucks) in four colors at either end of a shuffleboard. They slide the pucks down the table clockwise to the scoring area on the other end. You can score points for landing pucks on specific spots or knocking the pucks of your opponents out of cutting positions. The winner of the game is the player who reaches the agreed-upon score first.
Masters Games publishes rules for indoor and outdoor shuffleboard. It’s recommended that the discs be between six and sixteen inches in size, nine to 16 inches thick, and weigh at least fifteen ounces. To slide the disks, the pole has two small prongs. Played with eight wooden disks measuring about 6″ in diameter, the deck shuffleboard game is played using eight cubes. To keep score, each cue is marked with a shoe. The winner is the person who has scored the most points. This can be 50 or even 100.
Some techniques that will help you win at knock-off shuffleboard games are listed here. The key is to practice regularly. The more you play, the better you get. Second, have patience. You shouldn’t feel disappointed if your game prevents you from completing every frame. The third step is to make strategic choices. Use your opportunity to the fullest. Not to mention, never be ashamed of asking for help. Everyone is happy to offer a helping and willing hand. Learn a couple of tricks to help you become a better knockdown player.
Shuffleboard game in messages?
Shuffleboard allows you to spend time together and enjoy yourself. For Messages to enable you to play Shuffleboard, please follow the steps below:
- Open the Messages program on your phone.
- Tap on the Groups button in the screen’s bottom left corner.
- In the group’s list, tap on the group you want to join.
- If you still need to join a group, people will join as soon as you add yourself (by sending a message).
- Once in a group, slide cards down from the top of the screen and select one to play with by tapping on it.
- The other players will then slide their cards into view and choose one to play against you. Play until one player has no more cards or taps out (by hitting the X at the bottom of their screen).
- If there are any ties at the end of a game, sudden death will occur where each player plays two cards instead of one (and the first player to lose both cards loses).
Tips for Play
If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to pass the time, playing shuffleboard on your iPhone or iPad is a great option. Here are some tips for getting started:
Setup Shuffleboard: The first thing you’ll need to do is set up a shuffleboard on your device. This can be done by going to the App Store and searching for “Shuffleboard.” Once installed, open the app and click the “Settings” tab. From here, you’ll need to set up your game Preferences, such as whether you want to use international or US laws. You can also choose how many players each game has and which tile layout you’d like to use (6×6 or 9×9).
Choose your tiles: Next, you’ll need to choose which tiles you want to use. Six different options are available, each with pros and cons. The most popular tile layout is 6×6, perfect for more short games between two players. However, 9×9 offers a more challenging experience and is better suited for giant games with more players. If you’re playing against another person on iMessage, make sure to use the same tile layout they’re using so the game is fair!
Set Up Your Game: It’s time to set up your game! First, choose who will play by selecting one of the two-player icons at the top of the screen. Next, choose the side of the table you’ll be playing on by clicking the arrow next to it. Finally, determine which tiles you will use by choosing from the tile selection bar at the bottom of the screen.
To conclude this topic, the game must be played according to Shuffleboard rules. As I discussed above, with all the scoring rules and playing methods between 2 players and four players, you can win the game through these steps. The only thing you have to do is to avoid falling your puck from the table.
