One of the few things that I don’t like about my Mac is the unfortunate fact that it doesn’t have solitaire. I love solitaire. I used to play it for hours and hours…when I was supposed to be writing papers for class. Instead of solitare, the Mac has chess.
Chess? I wish I liked to think that much. 😛
Really my problem with Chess as opposed to solitaire on the computer is that what I’m usually looking for is just something to do with my hands while I listen to a podcast, figure out some plot point in the next Mercator book, or talking on the phone. And Chess, while a great way to improve your strategic ability and mental flexibility, isn’t that great when you just want to click your mouse mindlessly.
Over the years I’ve gone through a couple of web-based solutions to my need to click. And through my generosity of spirit, (it’s something to post) I’d like to share a couple of my favorites.
Next is a game that reminds me of the connect the dot’s box game I used to play when I was little. the object is to beat the virus by taking over the circuits. I’ve forgotten how much I like this particular game. I used to be all but unbeatable.
Eventually I moved on to Mah-jong which is a seeming simple matching game. Simple until you run out of matches. I still play this game TONS. Fortunately I’ve got it for my Nintendo DS which is my favorite traveling companion.
Just FYI. Have fun. I know I will. 🙂
