      There are a lot of online games to waste your time playing. Here is a newer addition to the many available. It’s mindless but requires a level of deduction to complete all levels. (35 at present) Most of us know whack-a-mole, but there are so many more time waster’s out there.

      I’m not suggesting a web site full of time wasters, just a single game that’s on a site you don’t need to register or download to play. I have spent way to much time pursuing junky but fun stuff on the web, here’s my latest. Off and on it took me 2 days to complete all the levels.(I do have other things to do) The first 10 levels are really easy, deception comes later.

      Scroll for directions on how to play, they are under the game board.

      Feel free to post a time wasting single game link, but before posting a link to a game please vet it here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home/url

      If it gets a bad result please don’t post the link here, the post will be deleted.

        Shaun (TS), a.k.a “tonyl”… This looks interesting, even addictive, but what is the goal of this game? An instructions manual, or any instructions, really, clarifying this point, would be a nice thing to have. So, with that, I’ll be able to waste as much time as there is left for me in this world playing it.

      I used to enjoy playing, now and then, Mahjong Solitaire back, when in my Windows 98 years. Bluetrix made me remember that, so I decided to check if it is still around, and lo and behold, it is! And available for free! Hard to explain: is it a bit like a cross between Mahjong and Tetris? Well… not really.

      I must confess that the one game I most like to play is the cards one called Five Hundred (somewhat like Bridge, but fun). Sadly, it is only fun if played with actual people.

      a nostalgic waste of time?
      Found Prince of Persia MSDOS floppys (I spent hours on that in Windows 3x)
