Chirp Club is a twitchy competitive local multiplayer videogame that combines Joust-style movement and combat with elements of field sports. Anywhere from 2 to 100 players can join a game simply by going to a web site on their smartphone, with no need to wait for a new round to start or another player to stop playing. It’s simple enough that anybody can learn to play in less than a minute!
