The gang over at Jared Company sent us an email letting us know about their new free games app.  The free J-Games multiplayer games can be played from either your BlackBerry PlayBook, or from your PC/Mac.  This lets you play either multiplayer Chess and Reversi, or you can play single player Snake and Box Blaster.  The best part is that since it is all handled on the Jared Co. servers, you can play with your non-PlayBook owning friends.

I haven’t had a chance to do any in-depth multiplayer yet, but what the time I have spent on it has been great.  I have also played quite a few games of Snake on my MacBook Pro, so much that I am late writing this up.  All the games have played smooth, and I haven’t noticed any issues.  The fact that they are free makes them even better, and they are great for playing some quick games while travelling to work, or trying to outwit your friends at Chess.  You can check the PC/Mac version, and the PlayBook one at the links below.
