Crossword Puzzles and RPG games Mar 25, 2006

I love crossword puzzles, and this site has become addictive to me:

http://puzzles.usa-today.com/

The puzzles available go back two weeks, so that's 10 total (they run from Monday through Friday).

You can subscribe to have more puzzles available, but my addiction doesn't go that far!

Well, it did go a bit far when I downloaded a little software program to play puzzles offline *blush* But it was for free!

This program has a number (I think it's 50) of set puzzles; when you do them all, that's it! so I haven't done them all yet, I don't want to run out of fun... hehe

As for playing games offline... I used to play Diablo 2 on the computer, it's an action-adventure game, of the so-called hack&slash variety, with lots of role-playing and Dungeons&Dragons elements, that's why I like it. But... I haven't played in a loooooooong time.

I also tried playing another RPG fantasy game, NeverWinter Nights... but never got past the first stage, I'm ashamed to say :-S

I never seem to have time to do fun things anymore Crossword puzzles aside, of course, hehe... but a puzzle takes 30 minutes or so, and when you're done, you're done. Diablo could take HOURS and you'd never notice the time.

Ok, I'm done

Magic: the Gathering Mar 25, 2006

I've playing it for almost 10 years - the most addictive and complex game I've known.

It 's a collectible card game, but about 4 years ago they started MtG Online server, so now everyone can play without leaving home and going to a club.

These days I'm trying to find some time to play Civilization IV, one of my favourite computer games ever, and I can't to try the multiplayer version (one of the new features of the Civ IV).

Literati on Yahoo games Mar 25, 2006

A game that is not unlike scrabble, where you can play against another online opponent or up to four other opponents. You can play a rated or unrated game and earn points or even lose them if you have a bad run.

When I feel particularly brave I venture out from the English language rooms & play in Spanish or French. I don't make a habit of it, because it can be addictive.

As a cautionary note, you may receive the occasional unsavoury message, but you can block anyone who is a nuisance to you.

Happy playing!

Sara

Spare time... Mar 26, 2006

yes, spare time is a bit of a luxury, especially with a large family like mine...

But occasionally I find the time to play games on my PC (double core, with the latest graphic cards...).

I tend to prefer first person shooters (I know, it's sad) and recently I enjoyed Doom 3 and Half Life 2. At the moment I'm playing Splinter Cell - Chaos Theory, which is more of a 'stealth' game than a shooter. Talking of which, I've got F.E.A.R. lined up...

Yahoo games! Mar 26, 2006

All games, and especially when I'm working.

I create a pause while I'm working every other 15-30 mins to take my breath. Knowing that if I moved away from my computer then I won't be back before another hour, so I log into a game I like and have fun (usually timed games to force me end) for two or three mins.

No spare time?? I make it when it's not there, I'll even buy it if it's not there ... and yeah ... I have to admit that it's never there

How many of you thinks that rules of limiting a day to 24 hours should change

No online gaming... Mar 28, 2006

but I'm a big fan of TBS (Turn Based Strategic) - with the Civilization series as my all time favorite (and I'm planning to buy Galactic Civilizations quite soon). I also play some pausable Real Time Strategic games such as Europa Universalis, Victoria and Hearts of Iron.

The onlyy drawback is that they require rather long playing sessions...

So, when I need a short break (but do not want to quit the keyboard) I often play quick chess games (atfer all, one of the best turn-based games of any times) - with a very old DOS program that I have been using for the last 20 or 25 years all the way from the ancient XT days and that still works... at lowest difficulty level and giving myself blitz time (3 or 5 minutes) limits.
