MeFites, let's connect on GameCenter June 16, 2012 6:42 PM   Subscribe

MeFites on GameCenter for iOS, unite!

I've had an iPod for a while, and finally feel the need to have friends. It is because I have begun playing Tiny Tower, and need to measure my tower against others.

Anyone who wants to add me, my user id is stedman15.

I suck at words with friends as cjorgensen and I think my game center username is thisflapfirst.

I think I'm immlass but I don't have much registered. What games are people playing?
posted by immlass at 7:12 PM on June 16, 2012


I've got a few games going. Scribblenauts Remix, Ticket to Ride, Angry Birds and Infinity Blade II are the most played. My username is amandaudoff

PanaceaPrescription, if any of you like playing Carcasonne.
posted by Blazecock Pileon at 8:30 PM on June 16, 2012


The ones I play a lot are Carcasonne and Tiny Tower.

Okay, I appear to be failing at having Game Center friends. Do I just add you all by nick? I'm trying to add PanaceaPrescription and it won't send my friend request because that is an unverified name.

Aww yiss Carcasonne. I'm Mizufae over there. Also of course bejeweled because, you know, the addiction took hold early and never let go.

I am supercres there as well. I play Ticket to Ride, Fruit Ninja, Temple Run, and Jetpack Joyride most often.

Orleeeee here. I had to delete Tiny Towers at floor 60 or so -- that thing generated an unhealthy level of compulsion for me. Sometimes I still miss those tiny mouth breathers.

I'm mcroft over there. I send requests to everyone above this on the page, because, hey.

I play a lot of Civilization and I try lots of games for an hour and then toss them.

YES! Same as my Twitter username (it's in my profile.)

Also Twitter username on GameCenter. I love Scribblenauts! I have a Tiny Tower but haven't played lately.

I accept your challenge! (At Scramble. I suck at Words.)

I'm trying to accept friend requests, but I'm having trouble with Game Center for some reason. If you ask me and I don't respond quickly, that may be why!

I'm [bjrn]

I have a load of games there, because I found out lots of games go free for a day or two (I'm using AppZapp and AppShopper to find them). So I go through a lot of them and throw most away after a few minutes. And a few days ago I had a bit of an issue with iTunes where it decided it should put a whole bunch of apps I had deleted back on my phone, and when I tried to stop it it got grumpy and deleted a whole bunch instead, making me lose all progress I'd made in the games it deleted. So I'm still figuring out what's worth starting over with.

I just picked up Pocket Planes. While there's no way to play with/against each other directly in Pocket Planes, you can work as a team on global events. You can enter a team name under Menu > Flight Crew. I just put Metafilter in there (although I can't help with the current event which is about something in Brisbane and everything I have is in Europe). I think you might win things if your team does well, but I'm not sure.

Anyone down for a relatively slow-paced Carcassonne game (prob 5-6 moves/day, average?) can find me as "scumbly". Expansions or no expansions is fine.

I'm chewies_dad

all over pocket planes at the moment, but also play all of the usual suspects (temple run, words with friends etc etc)

Hey, I'm "deathm tn" (without quotes and no space) on Game Center. I am an asynchronous game devotee, and I play Carcassonne, Ascension, and sometimes unofficial Dominion on there.

I'm ignignokt_ on WWF.

Oh, and I would play Ticket to Ride if anyone was interested.

Bah! Leave it to me to get my own handle wrong. I'm randomproxy on Game Center.

I am Buttons and Kitten. Not sure how it's spelled for a friend request -- might be buttonsandkitten. Pretty much any board game conversion, and I'm in -- Carcasonne, Ticket to Ride, Ascension, Settlers, Scrabble, and an embarrassing amount more.
posted by Shepherd at 6:17 PM on June 17, 2012


I play slowly and sometimes forget about games altogether. I'm otherwise a very nice person though *flutters eyelashes enticingly*, and might be more attentive if I actually had more than one game center friend. I'm bethnull there as well.

I don't think it goes through gamecenter at all, but I would sure like it if there was ever anyone playing Dixit.
posted by bethnull at 6:32 PM on June 17, 2012


amphetamine42 and Tflbo - it seems to think your usernames are invalid. Everyone else, I was able to invite!
posted by ignignokt at 6:40 PM on June 17, 2012


bethnull, Dixit is great, and I never knew there was an iOS version! Grabbing it now.
posted by ignignokt at 6:41 PM on June 17, 2012


circemuse on Gamecenter- my games are Whale Trail, Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump, Contre Jour and Cut the Rope, and Angry Birds. Looks like I'll be adding Tiny Tower.
posted by kimdog at 7:17 PM on June 17, 2012


I gave up on Tiny Tower when they stopped updating it, but now am just as addicted to Pocket Planes! I joined the Metafilter flight crew--I'm wordnerdy.

I think my Scramble name is different from my gamecenter name... I'm kimdognyc on scramble (which I've become addicted to in the last 30 minutes)

I'm phirephoenix, but rarely deal with GameCenter because goddammit Apple stop launching shit at random and just let me play my game in peace. That said, I'm on Tichu, Ticket to Ride, Carcassone, occasionally Fruit Ninja, a a bunch of other games that I'm not sure have a GC integration component (Drop 7? Orbital?).

Oh yay. I am prov. Let's be friends so you cann beat me at Carcasonne and Ticket To Ride and things!

Oops, I also have a different name on Scramble than on Gamecenter. Is it too late to integrate?

Looking at my list of games after linking to a couple of MeFites, I have to say I'm really astounded at how many games I actually play. Out goes the idea of me being a productive user of the iPhone....

I'm Lexica510 on GameCenter and OpenFeint. Not very active, but that's in part due to the no-friends thing up until now.

Just realized carcassonne doesn't use gamecenter friends to populate the friends list, but email addresses, I guess? My email's in my profile for anyone who wants a game.
