Solitaire Game Guide

Solitaire Game Guide

Despite what you may think, solitaire isn’t actually one specific game… it’s actually an entire category of different games. Solitaire is actually any card game that you play on your own. The game called "Solitaire" that Microsoft ships with windows is actually a type of solitaire game, called Klondike.

There are hundreds of other solitaire games as well though. Another favourite is Freecell, which Microsoft also ships. Other popular solitaire games, include Spider, Pyramid, and Tri Peaks.

Each solitaire game has different rules, different ways to win, and different styles.

Some solitaire games, like Klondike, don’t show you all the cards at the start. A mixture of luck and skill is needed to win the game.

Other games, like Freecell, have all the cards visible, right from the very start of the game. This means that the game is totally under the users control… there is no luck involved at all, and if the user can think things through deeply enough, then they are VERY likely to win.( Of the 32,000 deals available in Microsofts Freecell, only one, deal number 11982, is unsolveable)

Some games are really hard to win, and require a lot of though. 4 Suit spider is one of these hard games, and completing a game normally takes atleast half an hour of solid thinking. Other games are either quite easy( like most deals in Freecell), or don’t require much (if any) thought, like Clock.

Some games have distinctive and attractive card layouts. Pyramid has all the cards in a big pyramid shape, and the player must remove cards from the bottom layers until they can reach the top. La Belle Lucie starts the game with 18 fans, which all grow and shrink as the game goes on. (La Belle Lucie looks particularly attractive on a solitaire game supporting rotated cards)

Some solitaire games were played regularly by important historical figures. George Washington and Napoleon were waid to play Napoleon at Elba island, with claims that it helped them to think in times of stress.

All solitaire games help you to think, and improve your concentration and memory- and yet they are still relaxing and fun… A much better way to unwind than watching TV!

No matter who you are, or what mood you’re in, there is a type of Solitaire game that you will find fun to play right now. I encourage you to try out a solitaire game package, and discover for yourself all the great fun available in the solitaire universe.

Xbox Games For Online Gaming That Mom And Dad Should Know About

Xbox Games For Online Gaming That Mom And Dad Should Know About

If your kid has an Xbox and they play online you will often here them either yelling at the TV or talking to you about how awesome it is. You will often see your kid wanting to play role playing games or shooting games because they like the action and shooting. If you love to play Halo then you will love to play that type of game online. Your kid probably already plays it and that’s what he has been trying to tell you forever.

If you have a computer and an internet connection you can play any online game as long as you have a subscription so you can make an account. I play Counterstrike and I love it. You just get online and start playing with your friends from the game. You will make friends fast online if you play a decent amount. The more you play the better you will get. Most kids that play computer games on the internet play the most insane hours that you will ever hear. Kids somehow find a way to play more then 50 hours a week. It is in the stats on Counterstrike if you were to look.

The other type of activities that you might find your students or kids playing is the flash games on the internet. While at school I used to play the flash games after I did my work because I had a computer class and I had computers in some of my other classes. We would get online and look for some that were fun until school was out and we could go get on the real servers and play real online games.

If you have an Xbox or a Sony Play Station then you probably already know about online gaming. All you do is sign up for the service and you play the types that are online enabled. Most online games are like Gears of War and Halo 3. You can also find shooter types like Call of Duty I think they actually just came out with a new Call of Duty called Modern Warfare. I heard it was a good one but I am not sure if it is online enabled. Although I am pretty sure that you play it on the net because most of these games you can play online. They are pretty fun you usually just go out and start shooting up the other team. There are role playing games and such like that but they don’t tend to make them for internet play although they do have a few of them I think like Final Fantasy and games like those. I am not really into the whole anime theme like the fable games and stuff; online gaming is for shooters in my opinion.

Simple but Fun! Arcade Classics

Simple but Fun! Arcade Classics

Do you remember your childhood days at the local arcade? How many quarters did you anxiously jam down the slot to get a little bit further in Donkey Kong or Super Mario Bros.?

Those were pretty good times for you and for the video game industry. You could play a game utilizing the latest technology for a bit of your lunch money, while the industry could throw a few pixels on a screen and rake in said lunch money. Times have certainly changed though. The old arcades have fallen into a state of disrepair, as new games just aren’t being made to cater to their genre. You also won’t be able to play the newest games for a piece of your lunch money either. It’s more like part of a second mortgage to pay for all of the expensive gear to even be able to run the newest games. Doesn’t it just make you pine for the old classics in the arcade?

Thankfully, most of these old arcade games have successfully weathered the trials of time to make the full jump to the Internet age. Flash games have happily pulled the old technology right into their warm, glowing, electronic bosom. Flash designers and game developers have used their knowledge to turn the games they played as kids into a game they can now play for free. Copyright issues can be a little bit fuzzy around these games, but that’s for the developers to handle. What does this really mean for you though?

Well, it means that you can finally beat Donkey Kong without blowing $50 on a thousand restarts (unless you’re actually good). You can even enjoy the added control from using a keyboard and a mouse. All of these classics have been picked up as little flash games somewhere, in one form or another, so that you can enjoy them in your spare time. What could be better than a bit of nostalgia during a lunch break? Did I mention that they’re free?

There are some other great games that have made the jump as well. The popular Sonic the Hedgehog franchise was made into a popular flash game. You can play all of the great levels of the old games in a convenient online setting. You might want to turn down the sound if you’re playing at work though. Your boss won’t believe that Microsoft Word now makes whirling and ringing sounds when you spell something right (trust me, I know).

In the end, it really just comes down to your basic convenience in getting your game on. You are now able to play all of the old games you loved without spending an arm and a leg. Playing games online is going to be a lot cheaper than any of the games you can expect to find today, but you should still get a classic thrill from the experience. Deep down inside, I know that you have always been deeply bothered by your unresolved issues with Donkey Kong and Pacman. Play them today and sort out your life.

Social Facebook Games: Interacting Users And Building Network Of Friends

Social Facebook Games: Interacting Users And Building Network Of Friends

If you have been around Facebook for quite some time, you probably have been infected by the virtual viral applications. You probably found in your page that you have been poked, bitten by some vampire, found a sheep lost in your page, got a round or more of drinks, and gifted with some flowers or trees, and many others.

These are the results of the unique and entertaining Facebook games features. They allow the users and players to interact with each other making the games even more enticing as you build social relationships with other people. This is called social gaming.

The thousands of social games on Facebook have created quite a stir in the cyberspace, rousing the interest of more than millions of users around the world. There are now thousands of these social games that people have grown hooked with for the past few years.

So, what are the reasons behind this phenomenon?

Simple. Social games stand out from your regular games, which you play either separately on another web site or on your game console or computer. Social games allow you to throw sheep, zombies, gift your friends, bite friends with your vampire, and give hundreds of things to your friends on your Facebook account.

And not only that, you also get to challenge your friends by throwing them your high scores and urging them to beat you. On top of that, social games are endlessly growing more organically, allowing you to discover more and more unique items and features as months pass by. There are other social games that no longer need for the people to face each other just to have real time fun; an example is the online Facebook Poker.

Game results are displayed on your wall, so the entire network of friends you have knows what you are playing and how you are doing with that certain application.

They can continue to grow the network by inviting their own network of friends.

In addition to the invitations sent out to other users, the results displayed and game back talks are another way to stimulate their interest and eventually get them playing, interacting with you and other players, and having lots of fun by themselves as well. This social game group can have lots of challenges and fun by either beating score, slashing smack talks, taunts, and little dirty game play, enough to entice more people to play and join.

The innovative platform of these Facebook social games brings the users to interact with other friends and users of the site just like the way other social networking websites make their users interact with each other. But these real time games and applications bring lots of fun and social awareness around the world in much heightened level.

The Facebook games are definitely a phenomenal success in the virtual world. While it is not at all unexpected that the game developers of these applications make income out of the users (through the traditional advertising and urging people to use real money to buy online game money), the entertainment and the valuable social interactions players get to enjoy are undeniably bringing tons of fun time to millions and millions of users.

Who wouldn’t, when it is like hitting two birds with one stone? You enjoy Facebook games and at the same time build a network of friends from different parts of the world.

Online Adult Games

Online Adult Games

Sexual orientation also does not matter as there is something for everyone. Online adult games can be as interactive as you want or can be require very little input from the player. They can involve gay or straight characters as well as transgender characters.

Games can be as tame as dressing up a virtual character and dating other characters or can involve having sex in various positions if players chose to do so. Online adult games can also involve actual interaction with real persons versus playing against the computer. Others may wish to simply play against the computer for a more closed-ended game. Either way, online adult games provide a new way to meet and date persons with attaining additional benefits whether through interaction in the game itself or via the chatrooms and blog forums associated with it. Sex is only part of the equation if the player so desires. Men can enjoy instantaneous sex if they want and women can take it slower if thats what they wish to do.

Some games allow you to access your virtual character in the online adult game on a daily basis. This allows for the development of relationships and patterns. Online adult games can be testing grounds for the real world. Although online adult games in no way replace other social mediums persons may use these interactions to build confidence or to compensate for temporary periods of loneliness. Characters in the realm of online gaming can project a stable environment in which gamers can feel safe, satisfied and in control. On the other hand, if they wish to experience a not so planned world, where the unexpected happens then the vast realm of online adult games can provide that setting too.

The benefits of online adult games include the fact that the relationships developed are noncommittal. No one can be forced to do anything they don’t want to and enjoyment can be had outside of a strict relationship or union. One only plays as long as he or she wants to. These online adult games do not have to be the last resort of those who cannot get sex in real life as some critics would claim. Instead, many couples are attracted as a new way of expressing themselves and their desires, some use cybersex as an alternative to outright cheating and even others use it to spice up an existing and active sex life.

Online adult games appeal to persons of various situations in life. There are many different types and options so one can not get bored with this growing medium. Some internet users are skeptical but it never hurts to look or even try one. You have nothing to lose and lots or potential fun to have.

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved Star Wars games

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved Star Wars games

By the time I was playing the Star Wars PC games, my innocent childhood fascination with Star Wars had diminished somewhat. Don’t get me wrong, the Star Wars games were still very good. There were so many of them that I can’t keep track of all of them in my head, but I remember that many were first person shooter games. I liked going around Imperial bases, shooting soldiers with laser guns and trying to get my secret missions accomplished, but to me it didn’t compare to the thrill of piloting a rebel fighter. In many ways, the first person style of Star Wars game was exactly like Doom, Quake, and all of the other first-person shooters that have come out before and since. It was much less original, and hence less enjoyable. Nevertheless, it also lasted a little bit longer. There were so many levels that the action didn’t get monotonous.

Since then, there have been many other Star Wars games that have come out. I remember playing one which tried to combine the features of all the Star Wars games that came before it. You would get to pilot a spaceship, race through the forest on one of those hovering scooters, and even take on Darth Vader in a light saber duel. The problem is that it was the most expensive of all of the Star Wars arcade games. It cost something like four quarters to start, and your life wouldn’t last very long. I preferred free Star Wars games that you can play on your computer for as long as you wanted, or at least the old style arcade games where each was only a quarter.
