    Timewasters

    OK, aside from this timewaster, what are your favorites?

    Personally, I can't stop playing this game. If anyone else gets hooked and you qualify for a leaderboard score, post it to the "Redszone" group.

    Re: Timewasters

    I've had a lot more time on my hands the last 9 months, so I've had more time to waste as well. Mostly have spent a lot of time on myspace apps such as Mobsters and Mafia Wars which I am still currently playing albeit not nearly as often. I am also currently enjoying a little Mahjong Titans now and then. For a while I had an affinity for Bejeweled 2 and Word Whomp. Also occassionally I'll get in a game of chess, spades, poker, euchre, hearts, freecell or solitaire.

    This, which I first found through a link in an evil post on this board long ago and still has me in its grip.

    I just scored 628 a minute ago.

    For me it is fantasy sports that wastes my time. I spend way too much time reading about NBA benchwarmers and proposing trades to people in my leagues.

    Fantasy baseball is getting ready to start. I can't wait!

    This kept me entertained for a little while: Color Infection 2.

    I like puzzle/strategy games that make me think. Samorost is awesome. My favorite time waster of all time though is this: Powder Game

    If you like Samorost, Quest for The Rest is made by the same people and promotes the music of The Polyphonic Spree. It's pretty fun, but short.

    I've played those. Very cool stuff. I'd love to do a music project for something like that.

    The greatest internet game I have ever played is Heli Attack 2...

    this website is usually my first stop anymore. It has a little of everything

    I'm often found wasting time playing "Pseudobabble", an online multiplayer word game.

    That desktop defender game is killing me Nate... And it's all your fault!
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.

    Re: Timewasters

    desktop defender is solid but too easy. funnel everything through a gauntlet of weak stations and set up heavy artillery where it can fire on multiple lines you created.

    This game
    is tricky
