Do you play any computer games? I don't mean the SuperMario type, just ordinary ones.
I play various card games [solitaires] and one called "flowfree" which is quite challenging. I love it.

Has anybody tried that new one 'Wordle', it's like lingo but there is just one challenge per day. It is much more challenging than it looks on tv.

I am addicted to a few games on my mobile 😳 Royal Match & Project Makeover & Homescapes & Toon Blast & Word Connect & Word Life 😳🤦🏼‍♀️ So if I run out of lives I jump to one of my other games 😂. To be honest I am now limiting myself to length of time I can spend on my mobile playing games as many a time this has prevented me catching up on more important tasks that need attention 😂. I do find the games quite relaxing though!

I confess to being a Candy Crush addict, but would never spend any money on it.

Snap, I can sit for ages playing this on my phone but don't spend money on it
I also enjoy Free Cell, Spider solitaire and Mahjong on my laptop

You prefer the classics, and I love it. I am like you, who will choose a straightforward solitaire or free cell instead of something new and complicated. I also have so many friends at work that enjoy playing with me, and our games made us closer to each other. I am sure many people are secretly playing [freecell online](, but who don't want to tell anyone just because they fear being taken as boomers or something like that. I enjoy this type of online game, and I wish more people admitted they love it too.

Me too, I play it on two devices and have different games at different stages, I won’t pay for anything either 😀

Wordament, especially the daily challenges - it’s on my iPad too, Microsoft Solitaire collection, Elevate-it’s good for my brain, 1KCrypto, and Puzzle Page. Occasionally I’ll download a hidden object game, but I don’t pay.

Been playing too much of Bloons TD 6. Who would have thought that popping balloons with Monkeys would be so fun. smile

Word Soup is good.

mrsmopp Fri 06-Oct-17 17:09:59

Oh no, I can't get wordament on my iPad 😩 What a swiz!
Is there an apple version?

Kateykrunch Fri 06-Oct-17 09:54:16

Wordament is a fabulous game, I am rather addicted to it and my best score so far is 92 words!

lemongrove Fri 06-Oct-17 09:16:56

Freeflow, jigsaws, hidden object games, solitaire, and the best logic games ever Monument Valley 1 and 2.

I like wordgames on line but really enjoy doing crosswords in the paper.

mrsmopp Thu 05-Oct-17 23:59:29

Scrabble, Codewords, Sudoku, Crosswords, Cody cross (quiz) Solitaire, Spider and 1010. All free, all good fun.

NanaandGrampy Fri 14-Jul-17 19:14:14

I like multi player games and puzzles .

hildajenniJ Fri 14-Jul-17 18:44:19

I play Scrabble and sudoku. I also have a block puzzle which is addictive and also time wasting.

I love to play solitare on my Kindle but it's a download not on line.
I kèp trying to crack 2 mins to get a game out.

I love the skeleton crosswords found in puzzle magazines but have not been able to track these down online.
If anyone knows of a site containing these crosswords I would love to know.
