Just admit it! You play online games, right?
You can’t fool me, here are the stats…
So…which types are your favorites? Simulation, trivia, board, word, strategy, or all of the above?
Being a wordsmith, you probably already know which ones I lean toward.
Most people enjoy online games because it relaxes them or focuses their attention on other things. I am always seeking a new online game–particularly when I am procrastinating instead of trying to meet a writing deadline. Recently, I discovered a new online game platform called Plays.org.
Initially, I was going to make a beeline for their word and trivia games. However, another “type” of game caught my eye.
As a full-time writer, I probably type in my sleep. I learned the skill in the 7th grade on a manual typewriter with no characters on the keys. A lesson that has served me well for 35 years. However, I am always striving to do better.
Fast Typer is just one of the typing games on Plays.org that I use to measure my accuracy and speed. It’s challenging because I’m not allowed to correct a mistyped word, even though I instinctively want to. It gives me words of various lengths to keep me on my toes. To me, speed equals increased productivity. However, if my work isn’t accurate, I’m not doing myself or anyone else any favors. So I try and try again. There are some typing games suited for kids also.
The site has approximately 100 more games or so for me to choose from, and is expanding to add more. I don’t have to scroll through ads, and I can enjoy free, browser-based online games from many genres.
Now that you know the skill I sharpen with online games, which one do you sharpen?
