Dress Down Friday – Tetris-Like Quinn Gets Updated


One of my absolute favorite mac games, Quinn, has been updated into a really nice sleek new version that is universal binary and has a number of great new features. This freeware game is worth downloading and checking out. We all need a break from time to time!

If you’re like me and have more than one Quinn fan in the house (Emily and I both love it), and have at least two mac’s easily accessible on your home network then you really need to try out the network game play.

I had a hard time getting it to work at first until I read these directions:

To configure Mac OS X’s software firewall:
Open the System Preferences, and go to the Sharing pane.
Select the Firewall tab.
Click the New… button.
In the dialog that appears, choose Other as Port Name. Enter “31459-31463″ as TCP port numbers, and leave the field for UDP port numbers empty. In the description field, type an easily recognized name for the service, e.g. “Quinn server.”
Click OK.
