Thanks to MomsBassetHound writing up her instructions for setting up Jungle Gin HD to play with a friend, double browse, or play a bot with your own options.
Note: When you get to the Jungle Gin page and hit play it may take a few minutes to load. It will stop for a minute or so at 28%. If you just sit there and wait a minute or two it will fully load.
The following directions will work for if you want to play with a friend, double browse, or just play a bot with your options.
If you want to play with a friend you will have to set up a time to play in advance, and whoever is going to set the table needs to tell their friend what the password will be, or they will never be able to join you.
1) Click on Find A Friend
2) Click on Create a Table
3) Click on Game Settings to set your options. Don’t forget to check the box if you want them saved for the next time you set a table.
4) Click on Table Settings to choose who you wish to play against, human or robot. At this time there is no reason to fool around with the skill options as everyone is the same.
5) Remember to make the room private and use the password that you gave your friend earlier.
6) Click on Play Now and your table will appear.
This is very important. You CANNOT play a bot while waiting for a friend. You must sit with the “Waiting for Player” pop up until your friend joins.
That’s also why it’s important to set a time to meet your friend, as you can’t just sit there for hours hoping someone that knows you will enter the game.
When your friend loads the game on their computer they have to click on Find A Friend. As long as you are sitting there waiting your name will appear on the list. They just have to hit join and enter the password you used.
The directions are exactly the same for double browsing.
