A fun free game for all BlackBerry 10 handsets - Shuffle Board

Shuffle Board may not be the most thrilling game for BlackBerry 10, but seeing as I've enjoyed playing it I decided it was worth sharing. The good news is that there is a free ad-supported version as well as a paid one, so you can at least play the game (and enjoy it) without having to dip into your wallet.

From my perspective, sometimes it's the simple games that tend to stay on my BlackBerry as they are perfect for those times when you just have a spare five minutes to kill. Shuffle Board is one of those, but if you fancy playing it with a friend you can do that too as the game has a two player option.

If you have played any form of shuffle board in real life you will know that the object of the game is to slide your puck up the board to gain maximum points. The same applies with the BlackBerry game. You have three scoring sections - 1,2 & 3 points - and whoever gets the best score wins - simple.

The graphics are fairly basic but the colors are of a nice choice and gameplay is smooth. As well as having the free version the app is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices so everyone can enjoy it. Although in the video I used my Z10 I've also played it on the Q10 and the experience is just the same - result!

Go and grab the free version and if you can, also grab a friend and have some fun.

How in the heck did you expect an ad-supported game to provide ads if it doesn't have internet access?

Almost unplayable in free version due to the frequency of ads/request for money. Also doesn't have the ability to knock discs off the end (you have to bounce them backwards) so changes strategies a lot from real game and non scoring discs get in the way. Also, scoring doesn't seem to work the way one would expect. One end red had a 3, a 2 and a one but green had a 2 (red's 2 was closer). Scored as 6 to 0 and should either have been 5 - 0 or 6 - 2 but that score is just bizarre. I suppose it might be OK but has been taken off my z10.

Crashes after the first round. Game is ok just can't get passed the first round. Crash Crash Crash

A 'fun free game' eh ? Am I the only one for whom that sentence gives the picture of the author having spent hours to remove every trace of fun from this game ?

Well, the game is not too bad to play if you don't mind waiting 5+ seconds for interstitial ads to play out. But I was not ready for the sudden advisory after besting my opponent in level 4: that there are only 4 levels to play in the 'ad supported' version. If I'd known this up front I wouldn't have downloaded this 7mb "freebie." I'm not bashing the game - it works as described, after all - but an up-front notice on the limitations would be nice.
