Anyone know of a decent online game to kill some time?

I find tower defense games are a great time waster:



Take your pick from these too:

Not that I ever get the chance to play such games but

www.addictinggames.com (http://www.addictinggames.com)

www.fhm.com/100greatestgames (http://www.fhm.com/100greatestgames)

are both worth a looksy

Something (http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/sleep/sheep/reaction_version5.swf) for the odd few minutes

I find http://www.fungames.dk/flashgames/shootinggames/midnightshot/index.php a good pick up, put down one.

Personally, I don't think you can beat a good game of Paint Pot Picker:


It exercises both your colouring-in skills and your manual dexterity.

Well, that's half an hour of my life I'll never get back. Start by clearing the column just right of centre.

Completely f****ed up my stats, mind.

FB & HW,

If you press CTRL and Z together, you can get back to the starting line-up. Then you can use the top-right x to exit and bingo.... stats intact!!

Killer Sudoku and Greater than Killer Sudoku at the Extreme levels and above will exercise your mind and certainly KILL TIME.

Agreed, then play the bump copter game next to it!

Could always try emailing the wife and get her name wrong. Not for the faint hearted - see the Heather Mills thread.

I like the simple, addictive, aviation shoot'em ups.

This one must be good as it annoys my other half when I play it with any volume at all :E

Well 31302 finally bites the dust... thanks Hill Walker.

30466 presents a new challenge...

Oh, Dan D'air, I couldnt do that :)

1941 is supposed to be the hardest solvable. 617 is pretty tough.

Or you could try to be the first ever solver of 11982

Or try the games on popcap. You can make a game of Bejeweled last an hour, and Bookworm can take all day if you're good at words (set yourself a target of a million)

An online game to use up some time? Try standing on the LeShuttle track for an hour, that'll work fine!


21st Mar 2008, 18:06
Some of those wasted time alright.
Crashed the stupid computer. :mad:

I dont know if all these games are a waste of time. Reading some of the medical research I get the impression that a few minutes a day spent solveing mind game puzzles is good for you.

bloxorz without a doubt. Made me put my thinking cap on a few times in the 32 games.
