I play Lexulous with my mom who lives 150 miles from me. It’s a connection we have online. Lexulous is like scrabble so she takes a turn and then I take one. We usually play once or twice a day whenever either of us gets a few minutes. We don’t have to be online at the same time so it’s great. There is a chat space too so we can leave messages for each other. We’ve been playing for years, either on our computers or iPads. I’ve heard that word games keep the mind sharp so it’s perfect for my 81 year old mother and me.
I also like Mahjong which I also play on my iPad. The real game is played with tiles so the board looks like tiles piled on top of each other with Chinese symbols on them. It’s a matching game and only the tiles on the outside edges can be used. Again, it’s good for keeping my mind sharp and it’s fun. The current one I play is timed so I try to beat my lowest time.
I used to be addicted to FarmVille. It was such a peaceful place to go when I felt my life was spinning out of control when Justine was a teenager. I could escape to my little farm and plant veggies, flower gardens and rearrange my buildings. I still keep in contact with many of my old FarmVille neighbours. Sometimes I miss that game. It really did become an addiction and it was hard to quit.
Do you play any online games?
