Not so much for your World Of Warcrafts and City Of Heroes'. I was thinking more like these-

A neat little flickr based picture rotating game.

An annoyingly addictive and deceptively hard tower defence game

For the more power hungry among you- free online Risk

and last from me for the moment-

A neat little human cannonball game.

so, what do you play online to avoid being productive?

Im finding myself currently addicted to Word Mojo over at GRAB

I also used to head over to LAZY LACES and GAMERSHOOD for all my puzzle/adventure/point and click games!

Behold Travian - The Destroyer of Time.

This is actually a quite good, but deceptive, game.

Initially you can play only spending the odd few minutes a day on it, but as your villages grow, and you create more of them, it becomes an increasingly demanding beast.

Play it at your peril!

I love YDKJ! I've still got a couple of the old DOS titles kicking around here, somewhere, but, unfortunately, they crash my system.

3rd World Farmer is an utterly depressing game, but its good to see how far you can get.

Triachnid is a really well made game putting you in charge of a 'triachnid' (three legged spider type creature) you have to navigate to the end of each area using your fancy footwork and web-spinning skill all the while protecting your young.

I love some of those old MS-Dos games too, if anyone knows where I can get a copy of Discworld II 'Missing Presumed...' (for the PC) I'd love to hear from you.

There are always copies kicking around on ebay at fairly reasonable prices. Lucky for me I've still got both the Discworld games in their original packaging eh? wink.gif

Damn you Kei! I've been playing Tower Defence for three days! How does anyone get a score of 6000?

The key is to use low-level cheap towers to funnel them into big, elaborate death traps with heavily powered up towers. If you click on a name on the high-score table it shows you the layout they used to get that score.

I've managed in the low 3000's what are your scores? Do you sell stuff? I cant see the point and I'm also relying on building a five tower crosshair of maxed out pellet and squirters and eschewing the other weapons, am I totally wrong?
