Waiting for a momentary lull in the sleet to try and get home dry, I while away a few enjoyable Friday evening minutes on Chain Factor.
It’s a simple but fairly engrossing idea: you drop discs with a number on them into a grid. Whenever the number on a disc matches the number of discs in the row or column that disc is in, it will disappear. This is true not just for the disc you’re dropping, but the discs which are currently on the board as well. This makes it one of the more cerebral make-blocks-disappear games out there, since there’s no time limit, no need to find the right disc to match with, just the ability to think ahead and to count. Recommended, certainly until the snow stops.
