Unless they're online games there is no sim card required to play them.

I need to download games, I know if iam on wifi its good, but it wont let me download and I think its because of the pre pd card

Downloading apps and games has nothing to do with the sim card. It's directly between the phone and the app store in question. Koodo has nothing to do with the transaction, hence, no sim is required.

Timo is correct as long as there's a wifi connection to your phone and router downloading apps shouldn't be an issue. Unless you run out of memory on the phone of course.
