Here are some “boredom busters”…
Following is a growing list of online games that you can play by yourself on your computer when you’re really bored — or just have some time to kill.
There’s nothing to download (might need to have shockwave installed, but most people already have this), and you’re not competing with anyone but yourself.
Trust me, I’m not much of an online gamer… For real.
But these are the classics!
Long-time favorites that everyone will enjoy…

I grew up playing board games and card games. It's a pastime that I've never outgrown. The games mentioned here are great for your home parties, family game nights, camping outings, and RV road trips. (We play some of them on our cross-country motorcycle trips, too.) When I'm not playing games with my friends and family, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
