Writing about web page http://www.zeronews-fr.com/flash/cube.phpSimple but curiously addictive Flash game, which unlike my previous post does require at least a tiny bit of skill. The instructions are all in Japanese, but it's pretty simple: click and hold on a small blob to show its direction arrow and a power meter. Let go of the button to fire the blob, and try to land it in the big box. Each big box has a number in it, which is the number of small blobs you need to get in it. It's like golf or bowling or worms or curling, but completely abstract, and kind of engaging because of that.
Writing about web page http://bobandmark.com/2006/fun/games/kitty-cannon.swfFlash game. Ridiculously simple and with almost no skill required, so it suits me well on two counts. 1,054 feet is my best so far.
Writing about web page http://www.weavedigital.com/guess-the-google/This is entertaining. You're shown twenty images from Google Images, and you have twenty seconds to guess the single keyword which would have retrieved all the images you're shown. If you're good enough at it, there's a scoreboard to record your performance for posterity. I wasn't.
