When I am completely brain fried – I revert to computer games.
Normally I am a fan of the Match 3 variety which can provide hours of mind numbing entertainment while successfully avoiding doing anything productive. Honestly, I do not consider running up scores as productive. Especially I am a fan of those which can be played in relaxed mode so that there is no pressure, no clock running and the ability to win if I stick to it long enough.
Ms Maus has always preferred Time Management and Hidden Object games. The first I simply don’t get, they are stressful and put on pressure. I am playing games to wind down, not up. In the case of the second, there is this slight issue of visual ability.
Most of the time, I simply can’t see those hidden objects no matter how hard I look.To top it off, many of them combine those hidden things with Rube Goldberg Puzzles which must be solved. Yes, I can do them. No, I don’t find them at all fun.
All of this is presented to you as background and might explain why I am sitting here bemused, working my way through the Mystery Case Files – downloaded from Big Fish Games.
Go figure – a different type of time waster, but time waster they most definitely are.
I really should be knitting, but I have only one more stage on Huntsville…..
