Sometimes, you can’t avoid the lazy and dull days that you look for something fun to do to waste time. What can you do? You could go online, and do either chat with online Skype friends or just play hearts with dummy players. That sounds boring so how about combining the two and make you challenge an online Skype friend to a one-on-one chess battle? Better? Then, check out these Skype Games.
If you browse through Skype Shop’s app page, you’ll see the Games category where you can download free and paid apps. One app available for download is FireArc.com’s FireArc Arcade.
FireArc Arcade let’s you play classic online games with your friends on Skype. It’s a free desktop program and it has versions available for Windows, Mac OS, Ubuntu Linux, and Debian. The basic requirement is simple: you should just have the latest version of Skype installed.
The FireArc Arcade offers these classic games which you could enjoy playing with your friends:
- Table Tennis (Inspired by the 1972 classic Pong.)
- Navy Ships (Inspired by the classic game Battleship.)
- Line Up 4 (Inspired by the classic game Connect Four.)
- Multiplayer Whiteboard
- Tic Tac Toe
FireArc Arcade is a separate program and won’t affect your Skype’s chat preferences and performance. It will just enable you to play games with your Skype friends who are online. Both of the users should have this app installed and if not, the app will ask the contact invited to download the game.
Oh and if you want to replay the conversation you’re having while playing the game, use record Skype calls with Supertintin.
Save yourself from boring rest days or even during weekday breaks to give you a bit of time to relax and have fun beating (or get beaten) by your Skype friends. Just be sure you won’t get caught playing this during work hours, unless you want to get verbally beaten in real life.
