Barnwars is a free two player, turn-based, tactical game for Android.
You can play using whatever method you and your friends prefer for keeping in touch; SMS, Gmail, IM, etc, they’re all supported!
How do I play?
Players choose their team; a herd of cows or flock of sheep, and attempt to outwit their opponent.
You win by stealing your opponents bail of hay, or by simply knocking out every member of the opposing team.
With a different map generated every time, no two battles are ever the same.
How does it work?
You simply make your move on your own device, and when you’re finished a coded link will be generated. Then you send that link back to your friend using any method you like, for example:
- SMS messages
- Email /Gmail
- Google Hangouts
- pretty much any method your Android supports
To play again just ask your friend to invite you to another game. If you want to challenge a different friend then you need to upgrade to the full version. That friend can then play for free, so only one player ever needs to have bought the full version.
This approach means you don’t have to setup yet another account and give away personal information to an unknown company. It also means you never have to worry about servers going down and preventing you from playing, you can simply send your moves through a different medium.
