The Game of Life ..
If you thought this was going to be a serious post cos of the title ..think again .. No way !!! I am battling this horrendous writer's block , so It's old post time !!...
This is the tale of my illustrious real estate career and assorted other interests.. In my humble opinion, I've built them all …libraries, workshops, ramblers (have to look up that word in the dictionary), colonial homes, estates, coffee shops and parks. After a lot of hard work, I've raked in a colossal $ 10,201,400.
Do I smell something burning??
Now, that's easily my career best. Well, I've been practicing becoming a real estate tycoon by playing "Build a Lot" lately. And it's taken me almost a week to perfect the game with the kinds of odds against me.. For starters, I can get only one hour free trial download from each gaming site.
Then there is a problem of finding enough sites that have thisgame. I've reached a point where I have downloaded every free trial available on the internet for this game. I've also used 4 other email addresses and 2 other computers… and now I don't have any other option, but to buy this game.. Now, that's bit of a problem,cos my
credit and debit cards are all gone , thanx to my shopoholic nature ..
Similarly I've scrounged the net for several other no-brainer games..What I am about to share with you are rare gems of wisdom, which ideally would have been handed down to my daughters , their daughters, their sons and so forth …But since I happen to be this really generous and nice person, I have decided to share my secret de-stressing
no-brainer free games on the net. Nothing is more enriching (?) and rewarding (?) than these games at the end of a stressful dog-eat-dog day in the merciless corporate world.
Read on.. You can thank me later…
My top-5 no-brainer type Net games..
No 5. Hidden objects mysteries games where amongst an assortment of junk, we need to find an apple or a knife or something hideous like a missing tooth. I've never actually solved any mystery completely though ,cos i guess the gaming companies would go out of business if they let me do the entire investigation(read as find all then arcane,mundane,stupidly concealed objects) in one hours time.
No 4. Noah's ark type stuff.. Actually I don't remember the name of the game, as I had started my gaming career with this amateurish game where similar looking animals have to be linked up by creepers before the water fills up the ark …Don't miss this game cos it has the most adorable pigs and hippos in town..;-)
No 3. Bejeweled type games.. Where you have nice, popping, colorful gems that go "clink,clink ,clink" when you make clusters out of them... This game is as arbitrary and random as games can get. It does also give you a sense of achievement of deftly letting the gems go "clink ,clink, clink". In reality, most of the "clink, clink, clink" is not in your control- It happens quite randomly...Nice music though,
especially the "clink, clink, clink" sound.
No 2. Monopoly type games.. Nothing like plain vintage monopoly for expensive time pass like buying up Newyork city or building 3 houses on California ...
And No 1 , as you would have guessed already would definitely go to Build a Lot type games where unlike in real life I am actually a multi-millionaire.
Through these games you can also get to do a lot of things you can't be in real life. I've been a Wedding planner, Cook, investigator, ancient traveler in second century BC, rich tycoon at the roulette table or a Restaurateur.. Just name it and I've done that. Plus If I have a not-so great gaming session, I can always get back the next day and do the same level again. Just save the game and get back when
things are a lot better… That's my take away from all the mindless gaming I've been indulging in… If today's not your day, come back tomorrow and take on life from where you left it…
"Alt F –S" and "Alt F- X" today, if you are down
Double click game of life tomorrow at dawn
And live happily ever after…
Ps: Since i am bankrupt(also read jobless), please donate money to help me buy
build-a-lot on the internet.$ 6.99 only and you can bring back happiness into my life ..You can transfer the money to ABN Amro A/c ***********1908 .. Thanks in
