I am trying to use the multi player with my iPad and my wife's iPhone. We have the same Apple id and same game center id. Is there any way to do it this way? That's the only reason i bought this version

    Have one of you purchased the multiplayer add-on? You should be able to start a game by going to the puzzle's info (either tap on the Info tab, or if you're trying to start via an iPad, tap on the puzzle's title). The option to start a multiplayer game should be visible within the Info pane.

    Yes I bought the multiplayer and on each device we can see Play together or
    play versus. When we click on it the Play together the invite a player
    screen is blank. We are on the same apple id and the same game center id.

    Ken,

    There's the problem: you need two separate Game Center accounts to do multiplayer. Please note that only one account needs to have purchased the multiplayer add-on, so you won't have to purchase it twice.

    If you have any additional questions or comments, please reply to this email. Thanks!

    So I have to have another apple id? And that id has to buy the app as well?
    That¹s ok, I just need to know how to do it.

    Ken,

    Yes, both users do need to have Crosswords Classic. However, you may be able to use a different Game Center account while using the same Apple ID so you won't have to purchase Crosswords Classic twice.

    If you have any additional questions or comments, please reply to this email. Thanks!

    Tx, but I did investigate and you do need two separate Apple Id’s for
    different game center accounts. I’m less concerned with paying the extra $10
    than with working through the use of a new id just for Crosswords. Thanks
    for all your help.

    Ok, went through all of the steps and now have a new game player id on my
    wife¹s iphone. Also I do have the multiplayer purchased on my ipad. When I
    tap on info and then ³Play together² I get a new screen ³invite a player²
    but the screen is blank. It then freezes the game. Same on my wife¹s iphone.
    We are using family sharing with apple in which we both can access the game
    and we both have different game id¹s. Any ideas?
    Tx,

    Ken

    Ken,
    Have you added your wife as a "friend" in Game Center? Only your Game Center friends will show up in that list.
