As many of you know, I run a bunch of (free) play-by-Web games on one of my sites. I just wanted to get a quick plug in for those of you who don’t know!
They’re turn-based simple strategy games running at one turn per day, which typically take just a minute or two tops to complete a turn. And they’re lots of fun!
- The Gods Decide — A game where you play a Greek god or goddess, tampering with the fate of puny mortals.
- Mighty Oaks — The game where you can be a tree! Decide how many leaves to grow, compete for your share of fruit, and store energy for the winter in your roots.
- Spore Wars — Our newest game! Try life as an alien preying on unsuspectng humanity. You must decide which are the best hosts to infest with your spores — to get them to breed effectively, it will help to cross-fertilize with other aliens…
- How Low Can You Go? — This really is dead simple, but fun with it. Each day you can choose a number from 1 to 64. If you choose the lowest number that no-one else has also chosen, you win that day — that’s all there is to it!
You can join any or all of these games here. Please do pass this on to anyone you think might be interested!
