    Hey guys, random question time from WildWon once again.

    I'm looking for great multiplayer DS games. I'm not talking Pokemon or anything like that. I'm talking about when you have 3 other friends sitting around, TV is on in the background, everyone has a ds and everyone can play.

    Basically, 4-(or more)player. Not Wi-Fi (can *include* wifi, but more "party-style" games), and *FUN* [​IMG].

    As well, please say if it is multi-card or single-card play.

    Here's what we've been playing so far.

    New Super Mario Bros mini games (multi-card)
    Mario Kart (both)
    Bomberman Land Touch! 1&2 (single-card)
    Clubhouse Games (both)

    I think thats what we've been playing recently.

    Other thoughts?

    You could just search the multiplayer section and find something.

    Perhaps you can attempt to get "LOL" and try that out, otherwise most of what's been said is "Ripping good fun, young fellow"

    J!US is also awesome of course.

    And no one has mentioned Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of fates yet?
    anyway.. that's 4 player co-op (multicard) Really fun with 4 players.

    Thats 4 player? No shit. I have played a little bit. Enjoyed the hell out of it. Want to play it more. 4 player just adds a new level onto that. Thanks!

    @everyone else: Good ideas! I have Mario Party & Mario/Sonic Olympics ready to go. Haven't tried them yet. And a few of those others sounds badass.

    Thanks all [​IMG]

    (as for LOL, i'm kinda curious about it. i think that'd be kinda fun heh. Has that been released yet? Or is that on the docket for sometime soon?)

    (...as well, can't fucking WAIT for gauntlet DS. Mmm... yea)

    I second a vote for Final Fantasy CC:Ring of Fates. I wish other developers would take note. This is the way to do multiplay!

    I third this. It's easily the most fun playing I've had playing DS with my friends in ages.

    Right about...here.
    And I fourth this. [​IMG] It really is a fun game, multiplayer-wise. I think my only complaint is that it does get boring after a while.

    Heh. Didn't know you can play multiplayer with Soma Bringer...

    I believe someone said it's only available through the website, although I can't say for sure, haven't checked.

    My favs are:
    FFCC ROF
    Soma Bringer
    Metroid Prime Hunters
    Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass (I believe no one mentioned this 2 ppl single and multi vs.)
    Children of Mana
    Lego Indiana Jones
    Mario Party DS

    Essentially, these are what I've been playing recently. Mainly Co-op but some versus.

    Uhm, when we tried that, we could only play 1on1 in the dodgeball mode, and 4 players free for all at "brawl".
    Didn't really like Super Dodgeball Brawlers, as most people seem to do.. :/


    And yeah, except all those titles previously mentioned, i can really recommend Lego Indiana Jones for 2 player Co-Op (as Flameburst just said)
