  • I can't believe nobody answered this. I thought I was going to get some suggestions. I use Solitaire Yahtzee, Mahjong, and Text Twist. But I don't have flash player if I did I used to really like shapeshifter too.
    • Roaring
      Thanks Linda. Answerbag and Chess for me. Never heard of Text Twist. I do like scrabble but do that exclusively live with another now and then

      And here's another one that's primarily geared to kids http://sheppardsoftware.com/braingames/braingames.htm The memory section called boxes. I got up to 15 once. Only need to keep track of 2 of the three balls.
    • beaker95
      Ha, yeah, that's wicked. Blew my mind till I saw your tip about watching just two balls. Got to level 12 first time using your help. Thanks, my friend.

      Linda do you have no real computer, you're just using a phone? It's too bad you're not next door, I'm often willing to help someone who needs a freebie fixed up to use. People give me their old computers, when they get so old they've become near-uselessly small (like an XP computer would be now), BUT...if one has no PC at all...then an old XP is great to have. You just do one thing at a time on it, instead of multi-tasking like one can do on a PC with a big modern quad processor (otherwise it will freeze up, and that's what I mean by small...also an XP wont play high definition videos, like one's phone might make. But you tube can be set to low resolution and played on an XP, and internet life can be had. If you really have nothing at the moment, ask around. People have these in their cellar or closet or garage often, everywhere!, because they cant bring themselves to throw them out, but if you ask, they'll pass it on free. (often with monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse included ;) You MIGHT even find someone who'll put in a few hours setting it up for you (well, being someone's old computer, it will need to be LEANED DOWN (cleaned out, AND maintenanced) so it has a chance of running fast enough. Plus you'll want to add a free anti-virus (Avast is good), and a couple programs like VLC (free and a must have), so you can play vids and music...Oh and couple good maintenance programs, so you can keep it from clogging back up in just a few months. I'm a whizz with these things, but unless you live in central Mass, I probably cant help (Although I might be convinced to pass on a step-by-step How To by mail or link, if you need. I used to make those all the time, as I designed websites, and always liked to provide a "How To" section for the members, who would often ask questions, so I just assembled a catalog of how to's I could paste to them.) OH! And as for games!! An old XP computer comes with PINBALL, and it's quite realistic. YES! And you can hook this to your living room television and just use a wireless mouse and board to operate it. (*snif* *misses old XP and its pinball * :{ .......... It's possible I could link one to a copy of Beavis & Butthead games too, but you have to be young at heart to enjoy spitting off a roof, or hitting people with tennis balls like they offer the opportunity to do. Other free games I found: ANGRY BIRDS is available online AND for a phone. (love that game, dont know what it is, but.. its funny somehow *shrug* (Oh wait it was Roaring who asked for games, well, there we are

      Thank you! I'm a ways away, way down here in Birmingham, AL! I did hear about someone who works in the Family History center that had a Windows 7, but it was already gone. However he said he would keep me in mind and look for one for me. Thanks!
    • Linda Joy
      It would be awesome to be able to do family history indexing at home!
    • Roaring
      I've been using T60 dual core for years now running Windows 7 and keeps up quite well. The last one I found for a friend I picked up locally for $85 When probs arise I Just swap out drives, or machines depending on what goes first.
    • Linda Joy
      I might could find one at the thrift store, but I want to get transportation first. I need my independence back first.
    • Roaring
      I hope you find what you're looking for Linda
    • Linda Joy
      I will, thank you!
  • Miniclip 8 ball pool multiplayer.
    • Roaring
      Haven't heard of that one, thanks. I love playing pool on a 4 1/2 x 9 Brunswick Table. Dad and I would play before he opened the Tavern.
    • beaker95
      The graphics on this are really cool and believable.
  • There's a game called Worst Case Senario. (probably mis-spelled) You guess the right action for different emergencies. Tests your survival knowledge and is educational too.
    • Linda Joy
      Like damage control we learned in the BMR! I wonder how much of it I remember...
  • I use this Polish site: https://www.playok.com/
    • Roaring
      Live games. Great!
