Yoomi™ is the initial game application to work with Duo™, the only integrated game device in the world to work with the iPad.
Yoomi is a fun, surprising, and easy-to-play new family game played on your iPad. You MUST HAVE Duo to play Yoomi on your iPad.
How to Play:
Each player takes a turn secretly selecting which of two options they like better. For example, would you prefer big bugs or small dogs? Fly to the moon or dive to the bottom of the ocean? Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot?
Yoomi choices are identified by written description, illustrations and color, so that non-readers can play too!
Players take turns guessing what others would choose. Duo reveals their choice on the iPad and “magically” banks the winning tokens.
