Weekly Time Waster - ‘Don’t Tax Me, Bro!’

Written by Matt Fern

There is a saying; “There is nothing certain but death, and taxes.” So with tax season here, I only found it appropriate to find a game with a tax theme!

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Motherload’

Written by Matt Fern

What will happen when we someday complete our journey to Mars? Will we colonize it and explore? Maybe discover life? Well, the simple game of “Motherload” says “Why not just mine it for its precious resources and become rich beyond belief?”

Weekly Time Waster - 'Tiny Tower'

Written by Matt Fern

When I was a kid, there were a lot of cool games making their way into my childhood from the '90s. The fondest memory of them all was a game called "SimTower."

Weekly Time Waster - 'Pipezania'

Written by Allen Adams

As you might imagine, when part of your time-wasting process is searching for games that will allow you to, well, waste time, you start to get a sense of what sorts of games will and won’t provide you with what you’re looking for. Often, a snap judgment is all it takes.

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Circuit’

Written by Allen Adams

It’s no secret that I tend to eschew the more complicated games in this space. Weekly Time Waster isn’t about finding those games in which you can invest hours and hours of playtime. Rather, it’s about finding those games that will allow you to kill a few minutes before class or between meetings.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Hex Blocks’

Written by Allen Adams

I know, I know … another game with the word “blocks” in the title. What can I say? I know what I like when it comes to my idle time.

Weekly Time Waster - '99 Bricks'

Written by Allen Adams

Sometimes when you want to waste time, you want something that is familiar. Other times, you want something new. And still others, you’re looking for something that is reminiscent of something familiar, yet different enough to pique your curiosity.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Block Master’

Written by Allen Adams

Often, simple is better when it comes to time wasting. If you’ve only got a few minutes to kill, you don’t necessarily want to get involved with something that is overlong or that features complex gameplay. You just want to click around for a few minutes, maybe solve a puzzle and then call it a day.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Gravity Balls’

Written by Allen Adams

There are few things that are better suited for my time-wasting pleasure than games that ask me to accomplish simple goals in complicated ways. The best of these tend to involve tricky physics and Rube Goldberg-ian paths and patterns; basically, the less straightforward the path, the more I enjoy following it. Of course, you don’t want things to be TOO difficult – what’s the fun in that? It’s all about that happy medium.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Mine of Sight’

Written by Allen Adams

Back in the day, it wasn’t nearly as easy to use your computer to idly waste time. Really, it used to be that you had to satisfy yourself with basic games like Solitaire and Minesweeper. The latter game especially made it easy to fritter away chunks of time – surprisingly large ones, in fact.
