I am looking for fun multiplayer games for Windows Phone 8 (and Windows RT too!). I prefer ones with Xbox achievements, and I am interested in both asynchronous and real-time (WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC) multiplayer. Something fun that I can play with family members of different demographics. For example, my Mom likes asynchronous word games, board games, and card games so we play AlphaJax and Wordament together. My brother is into more 'gamers' games, so we play Skulls of the Shogun and Rocket Riot together.
I convinced my entire family to buy Windows Phones (we all have Nokia Lumias) and Windows RT tablets (we all have Surface RTs), and now I want to show them how fun they are. But, from reading reader reviews for a lot of apps that I thought would naturally have multiplayer (Yahtzee, Uno, Risk, Monopoly, Bejeweled Live, The Game of Life, etc.), a lot of users implied they didn't have multiplayer, which seems really shortsighted of the developers. Any recommendations?
UPDATE: Since I haven't been able to find an easily accessible list of multiplayer Windows Phone games, I have decided to start a Wikipedia page that classifies all of the multiplayer games on Windows Phone, detailing the following
A. Type of certification (Xbox or not)
4. Number of players
B. Type of multiplayer
* asynchronous vs. real-time [pass-n-play, Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi]
Feel free to post in this thread that information for any games in the Windows App store, and then I'll add it to the Wikipedia page I'm creating. Then, when the page is more complete, I'll petition it to become a Wikipedia article.
