The rules are simple. Place 4 stones of yours on the board, that they are connected in a line, regardless of the orientation (straight, diagonal in all three dimensions).
ForFour plays with a different set of stones, each player shares the type of stones with other players. That makes the game.
AI players can be added, if you miss one or two players. They act like decent companions and adjust their skills to yours. So the better you get, the more powerful your AI opponents will become.
Up to 4 players can join a game. All devices must be logged into the same local wireless network. One player has to create a game (Multiplayer > Create game). While searching for players is active, all other players can join the game. If you are less than 4 players, the game creator must select an AI player to start the game.
Make sure, that you and your friends are all in the same local wifi network and one person has created a game. Then join the game (Mulitplayer > Join Game).
If this isn't working, try to manually connect to the host by entering the IP-address (Multiplayer > manually enter IP) which is shown on the host's device.
Please note, if you've created a local wifi hotspot with your phone, only the person who has created the hotspot can host, i.e. create a game.
The game is designed to be played near your friends or family, to allow communication, fun and action. Therefore remote play is not possible.
