Multi-Player

Another

This is kind of a strange name for an online, multi-player game by Spogg. The story of the game is that you have a metal worm and you are trying to make it grow longer. You make it grow by collecting energy stars along the way. You can also get power-ups and send nasty bombs to your opponents. The game reminds you of the old snake games where your snake grew longer as you played and you had to avoid obstacles along the way.
Playing the game
The objective of the game is to collect as many energy stars as possible with your adder, without crashing into the walls, obstacles or the adder's tail. To control the adder use the left and right arrow key. Apart from collecting energy stars you can also collect power ups. These power ups can be either good or bad, you can either take the power up yourself or send it to another player. Press the down arrow key to send the power up to yourself or press the up button to send it to the leader. If you press the escape key the power up will be removed. It is also possible to use the F1 - F4 buttons to send the power up to a specific player.
At any time chat messages may be written by typing on the keyboard, the chat messages are sent to the other players by pressing the return key.
Every Another game is 5, 10 or 20 minutes (only the private games). The player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner. If you are a registered member the highest score you have received will be stored after a game is over (only 5 and 10 minutes games). Depending on several factors you will also receive (or lose) ranking points after a game. Beware, if you log out of a game already running you will lose the same amount of ranking points as losing the game. However if you enter a game that is nearly finished and don't wish to lose ranking you have a short time to get out of the room without losing ranking.

Aerony

This is a multi-player racing game by Spogg. You can race against the clock or against your friends online. Your ship is a racing pod called an Aerony. I guess it is supposed to sound like Air or something. Another cool thing about the game is that you can chat with your friends while you are racing them online.
Playing the game
The object is to hit all checkpoints on a lap and then cross the finish line. If you miss a checkpoint you have to go back and hit it. A race is usually 3 laps. There are also some power-ups: Speed Up (increasing maximum speed), Speed Down (decreases maximum speed), Swap Keys (inverts your steering), Shield (makes you invincible to bad things), Shock (temporarily disables a ship). If you hit a spiked wall you will be shocked for a short moment of time.
On the top left you will see the time elapsed of the race and number of laps completed. Here you can also see picked up power-ups and power-ups currently activated. Good power-ups are activated instantly. To send a bad power-up to an opponent you click on the opponent ship (that means you have to see the ship) or press F1-F3 to send it to an opponent anywhere on the map. If you wish to remove a picked up power-up just press escape and it will be removed.
On the top right you'll see the exit button and current positions in the race.
In the bottom right corner there's a map showing the entire track and where your opponents are.
To start a race just click the START RACE button in the middle of the screen.

Scrambler

This is a cool game by Spogg games. The idea here is to rearrange the letters to form as many words as you can. You have to be quick because you are playing online against people from all over the world. It is kind of hard to pick out letters when they are out of order, but that's the fun of the game, after all!
If you are a member, you can chat with the other players in the game. I think it is free to join, but you get extra stuff if you pay (a small amount).
Playing the game
The objective of the game is to find as many words as possible from a scrambled word. To do this either click or drag a bubble with a letter to the area inside the rectangle and click submit. The words must contain three or more letters, the words are worth 1 points for 3 letter words, 2 points for 4 letter words, 3 points for 5 letter words and so on. The total number of words possible is shown on the left side of the game screen. Here you can also see which words your opponents have taken. There are two timers, one showing the total time until the winner is declared and one showing how much time is left until a new word is selected. There are 2 modes, nice mode where every player can take all words and mean mode where only the first player who takes a word will score for that word. In mean mode a new word is selected if all words are taken by any player, in nice mode this happens if all players have taken all words.
By using the Tab key you can toggle between using the keyboard for chatting or selecting letters from the scrambled word. Pressing return will then submit the word, space will scramble the letters, backspace will remove the last entered letter and escape will clear all selected letters.

Spogglitaire

This is a game published by Spogg. It is like solitaire, but has some interesting twists to it. First of all, you can play against others online from all over the world. In the speed mode, you compete with them to see who can get the most cards down first.
Playing the game
The table consists of seven columns, with the first column containing one card, the second column two cards, the third column three cards, and so on. The top card of each column is face-up; the remainder of the cards are face-down. The rest of the cards (24) are left face-down to form the stock.
The object of the game is to move the four aces, as they appear, to the top right boxes, and build each up in suit from ace to king (A-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-J-Q-K).
You turn cards face-up from the stock three at a time onto a discard pile by clicking the top left box. The top card of the discard pile may be played onto the seven columns or the top right boxes. Likewise, the top card of each pile is available for play onto the foundations or another tableau pile. Cards within the columns may be build down in sequence and alternating color. A sequence of cards may be moved as a unit from one pile to another. When a face-down tableau card is exposed, click it to turn it face-up. If a space is created amongst the columns it may only be filled with a king. The stock may be recycled from the wastepile when it becomes empty by clicking the empty top left box. When either all the top right boxes are filled, or when no more moves are possible (or when the only possible move is to recycle the stock) click the New Cards button to play another deal.
There are two different modes in spogglitaire: Fun and Compete. In Fun mode there's no time limit and no direct competition between the players in a room. The objective is to play the ultimate round of Spogglitaire (1040 points). You also have plenty of time to chat with the other players and see how they play. In Compete mode the objective is to get the most points in 10, 15 or 20 minutes. Winning will boost your ranking points but to get a high score you must play in Fun mode.
Scoring
You receive points for every card you put in any of the top completion boxes (20 points in Fun and 100 points in Compete mode). You lose points for moving cards from one heap to another. You can't have a negative score (this is a hint for receiving maximum score in the Fun high score mode). When pressing the New Cards button you will reset your score in Fun mode and you will lose 100 points in Compete mode, the high score list only shows the best scores from the Fun mode. Your ranking score will only be affected by the results in Compete mode.

Spellbound

Another multi-player game by Spogg is Spellbound. It's kind of like Scrabble, but instead of putting down letters, you have to find as many words as you can before your online opponents do. The letters are all scrambled up so the challenge is picking them out of the confusion.
The objective of the game is to form as many valid words as possible during the specified amount of time. Form words of three or more letters and submit them by either double-clicking the last letter or by clicking the word below the letter area. The letters in the word must be next to each other on the grid. If a word is valid it will show up in the green area, if the word is not valid it will show up in the red area. If a word is valid but already taken by you or another player, it will be grayed out.
If you wish you may use the tab key to toggle between using the keyboard for chat input and game letter input. When you're in game letter input mode pressing backspace will remove letters and enter will submit the word.
Scoring for letters:
Each letter is worth:
A=3, B=5, C=4, D=4, E=1, F=5,
G=3, H=5, I=2, J=5, K=5, L=4,
M=4, N=3, O=3, P=4, Q=5, R=3,
S=2, T=3, U=4, V=5, W=5, X=5,
Y=5, Z=5
The most fun part of the game is playing against people online from all over the world!

Sketchorama

Sketchorama is a really fun drawing game published by Spogg.com. In the game, you try to guess what the other players are drawing. You can also grab the pencil and draw if you want the others in the game to try to guess what you are drawing. This is a multi-player Java based game that is played in your favorite browser over the internet.
If a guess almost correct, you will see the correct part of the word on the drawing board. If no one has guessed the correct word after 60 seconds everyone will receive a hint.
If you think the sketcher is trying to cheat you can press the report cheat button, if more than half the players pressed the cheat button, no points will be awarded that round and the sketcher will be warned.
You may also chat with the other players to see if any of them have any idea what is being drawn.
I have been looking for cheats to this game so if you know of any, please leave them!
Scoring
The scoring in Sketchorama is simple, the faster the word is guessed the more points are awarded the guesser and the sketcher. The maximum amount of points is 200 per round.

Crosswise

Crosswise is a cool crossword game that was created by Spogg for multi-player action over the internet. You compete to create the best scoring words in this crossword game. Everyone places their word at the same time, so there is no need to wait for your turn! The fastest one wins.

The objective of the game is to form the highest scoring words from a set of seven letters. In addition to your seven letters you must use at least one letter from the ones already on the board. All letter combinations created need to form valid words. To create a word, drag the letters from your personal set to the game board. Note that the very first word must be placed on the center square (marked with a star). When you have placed your word, click the Submit button. If you haven't submitted a word within a minute you will pass the round and get all letters you have placed on the board back.

The player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner. The score you get for a word, is the sum of all the numbers marked on the letters. More uncommon letters generate a higher score. So it works a bit like Scrabble.

Ooze

This sort of gooey sounding name is another game by Spogg. The idea here is to remove balls that are connected together by clicking on them. You have to be fast, but you must also be smart about how you click on them.
The objective of the game is to remove groups of colored ooze before the ooze gets to the top of the game board. You can remove the ooze by clicking groups which contains 3 or more balls of the same color. If you play in a mode called mean and remove more than 5 oozes at the same time a black colored ooze will slowly rise in the time meter to the right. You can send it to an opponent by clicking on their gameboard or by clicking F1 - F4 or F5 to send it to the opposing player with the highest score. If you fail to send it or if an opponent sends a black ooze to you it will appear above your gameboard and when a new row of ooze is added the black ooze will drop down on your board.

Black ooze can only be removed if you remove ooze of some other color next to it. New rows of ooze that will be added can be seen at the bottom of the board and when a row is filled it will be added. If you wish to add a row faster just click the bottom row and it will be filled up instantly. The player with the highest score at the end is the winner.

You can also chat with other players by just typing on the keyboard. See if you can distract them while you are sending them some black ooze!

Popout

Popout is another Spogg game. Here you are trying to rescue cute little aliens from the bubbles they are trapped in. The aliens are called Spogglings and to free them, you have to get three or more Spogglings of the same color together in a horizontal or vertical direction. You can only swap positions of the Spogglings which are located next to each other, and the move must result in 3 or more Spogglings of the same color being together.
You move the Spogglings by either clicking and dragging the Spoggling you want to move in the direction of your choice or just click and release and the Spoggling will move in the best direction. The meter to the right side of the game board shows how long time that's left in the game. You can chat with other online players as in other Spogg games by just typing on your keyboard.
If you are a member, the games are either 5, 10 or 20 minutes long. The player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner. Depending on several factors you will also receive (or lose) ranking points after a game.

Multris

Multris is published by Spogg. Their website is sometimes known as Planet Spogg. The games are really first class and done very well. They are Java based so if you have the latest Java download installed you don't have to install anything else. You can play as a Public member which means you don't have to register or anything. To get to some of the better game rooms you just have to register as a member. I don't think it costs anything, but they do have a paid program as well that has some extra perks associated with it.
Multris is a lot like Tetris where there are falling blocks and you have to move and rotate the blocks before they reach the bottom. The fun, multi-player aspect to the game is that you can send Spogglings to online opponents, which is not a good thing for them. You can also chat with opponents as you are playing them.
Scoring is as follows: Every block you place is worth 10 points. Removing 1 line is 100 points, 2 lines are 300 points, 3 lines are 600 points and 4 lines are worth 1000 points. If your game screen fills up with blocks you will lose 25% of your points and the screen will be completely cleared of blocks.
