Back in the day

Um, like a have time to play games! Pshaw! I mean, other than Mario Kart and Lexu/Scrabulous. Since the aforementioned Penelope Time-Suckers have already been discussed, I’ll tell you about a highly addictive game I used to play at a job where playing games was totally acceptable (as it should be): Bookworm! It’s sort of like Boggle, where you create words by linking tiles. And it’s kind of like Scrabble, because the tiles look exactly the same. But every time you create a word and submit it, the tiles shift downward, leaving you with an entirely different set of word-combo possibilities. Things really start getting interesting when bonus tiles and fiery tiles drop down—let the fire hit the bottom, and you LOSE, suckah.

I highly recommend tapping into your Inner Bookworm as soon as possible. Have fun, and good luck.
