I am trying to play Ticket to Ride for the iOS on the iPad (regular full version, not pocket) with friends over the internet (not local wifi). I tried using Game Center to issue a 'challenge', but it doesn't seem to work. I always end up in a room with random players when I use the 'local' play feature. Does anyone know if this type of multiplayer game is possible with the iOS TTR?
It is possible to play with specific friends in real-time, though it may not be possible to play asynchronously. (Last time I tried, the game aborted if either my opponent or I left the TTR app, so it was real-time play only. That was a while ago though.)
Here's how to set it up.
