Fun and Games
(because we all need some fun and relaxation)
Big Fish Games - What a fun site!
This site is so fun! I make myself finish all my work for the day before playing any of these
games because they are really addictive! But boy do they take your mind off your problems. Now let me say, I am not
a person who plays computer games! Having said that, I will honestly say these are the most fun, they really are.
And all the ones I have looked at are family oriented and just plain fun family games that don't require you to
kill armies, play online, or see a lot of blood and guts, OR drag out a big manual to learn.
I was actually skeptical but every time I talked to my friend she would say oh, I'm going to
go play so and so game at Big Fish Games. After about the 5th time I decided to investigate. All I can say is give
it a try because you can download any game as a free trial and play for 1 hour. If you don't like it, forget about
it, delete it. If you do like it, you can buy the game for as little as $6.99. I'm embarrassed to say how many
games I have tried so far! But they really are relaxing and the quality is so good too. Also, there are never any
ads, adware, spyware, or anything like that which will find its way to your computer. They guarantee this, so I
feel quite safe about getting games from them.
So below, I will talk about some of the games I have tried. Beware of becoming addicted!
p.s. I will probably only be talking about PC games because I use a PC, but a lot of the games are also available
||Well here was my first game I downloaded to try,
Lost Treasures of El Dorado. My
friend actually was over here and sat down at my laptop and MADE me play it. Again, I have to stress
to you, neither of us are computer game playing types. Both of us are in our 40s and very sensible
about most things. But I have to agree with her, this is an easy-to-learn and very entertaining and
relaxing game to play. Very very simple to learn, but sorry to say very
|Give it a try, I promise that even the most
non-computer-savvy person can enjoy this game. Wonderful graphics too (same for all of their
games). Not sure how they do it for so little money. Oh, another neat thing is you can watch a
little video for each game and it shows you the basic concept, so you can see if it's something you
might enjoy. It is basically I would say in the category of a puzzle-type game. You link 3 or more
colors together to make them go away and try to uncover all the gold tiles. Very enjoyable game,
reminds me of how much fun I used to have years ago when I was around 18 and worked at a skating
rink where we had lots of video games. Those were the days! I give this game a rating of 5 happy
|Well, the next game I downloaded to try was Heroes of Hellas which is quite a
bit like Lost Treasures of El Dorado above. So I knew I would like it, but wasn't sure if it would
be different enough to be worthwhile. It is! I can say that this game is truly just as much fun as
Lost Treasures. It is similar enough that if you love one you will love the other, yet different
enough too. Highly recommend! Five happy stars for this one too!
||Before I found the above-mentioned games, this is the only
kind of game I really liked. I have a friend who lives in another state and we often play online
Scrabble together, but this is similar to Scrabble and you can play it alone so you don't have to
sit and wait for others to take their turn. I really like this game! I would say that it is not
quite as addicting as the first two but it is a totally different type of game so it depends on
what you're in the mood for. I recommend it and give this one 4 happy stars!
|Another word game I really like is Flip Words 2. One reason I enjoy
this game is the object is not only to make words out of the letters but to also solve the phrase up
on top. Sort of like hangman. What you do is find words and the first letter of your word is used to
solve the phrase. For example, if you found the word, "guitar," the letter "G" would be used to
solve the phrase, assuming it contained the letter G somewhere in it. There is a list of all the
letters, and the ones you have used are automatically crossed off. I really enjoy this game and
recommend it. Four happy stars!
