Playing Skip-bo over the Network

Just found a java implementation of Skip-bo which should run over a network [1]. Never mind if the manual says that the game only works on Windows, I have it running on OS X too 😉

$ java -cp skipbo.jar skipbo.SkipBo

… or start skipnet_de.jnlp with Java Webstart. To configure an intranet game worked like this:

– PC1: start a Skip-Server on your local IP e.g.
– PC1: enter a Nickname
– PC2: search manually for a Skip-Server and enter the server\’s address:
– PC2: enter a Nickname
