Inviting Friends in Hardwood Games: New Features for Easy Game Setup

Inviting Friends in Hardwood Games

Typical Invite Options

Hardwood Games offers several ways to invite friends to your game. You can still invite friends directly from the lobby:

  1. Tap on a friend's name in the lobby list.
  2. Choose "Invite to Game."

New Deep Link Feature

The new deep link feature allows you to invite someone from anywhere, as long as you can share a link with them. This feature makes inviting friends more flexible and convenient across all Hardwood Games.

How to Use the Deep Link Feature

  1. Host a Game: Start by hosting a multiplayer game in one of our lobbies.
  2. Invite Friends: Under the "Start" button, select "Invite Friends."
  3. Share the Link: You will be provided with a link that you can share through various platforms (e.g., Messenger, email, social media).

How It Works

  • For New Users: If your friend doesn’t have the game installed, they can click the link, download the game for their platform (Android, iOS, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Windows, Mac, etc.), and be taken straight to your game once installed.
  • For Existing Users: If they already have the game installed, clicking the link will take them directly to your game.


  • Convenient: Invite friends easily, no matter where they are.
  • Flexible: Works across multiple platforms.
  • User-Friendly: Simple for both new and existing users.
