is it a downloaded game or browser based?

if its downloaded make sure it is allowed through your software firewall.

can you access files ok on each computer from the other? Have you checked windows firewall to make sure there are allow rules for the game?

Are you using simple file sharing? have you set or changed any of the local/group policies?
