Good evening, Snerfu; I’m an old gamer - Neverwinter Nights, Diablo, and many Playstation games. I’m sure you know the studies that say gaming gives our writing brain a break so that we come back refreshed and ready to write, don't you? Well, maybe there wasn't a study, but for me personally, taking a break and playing a first person shooter or a match three seems to rest the part of my brain devoted to writing articles, so I'm so glad you mentioned all the sites. Great job in structuring this article, Snerfu. ~Marilyn

So good to see you again Ms Davis, and thanks for the compliment. Keeping my article tidy is a tough chore. But playing a game, well come hell or high-water, nothing will deter me.

I love FB games. It is a way for me to see that my fellow players are OK -- and of course, to beat the pants off them!! ;) All in good fun, of course.
There is an online game I used to love -- Alchemy. I can't seem to find it anymore. It is a bit like blokus - a domino-style game where you match shape or color with the adjoining sides. The goal of Alchemy was to clear the whole board and then the challenge on additional boards were more colors and more shapes. Simple concept -- difficult to master! If you happen to know the game I am speaking of, I'd love to have a link. There are many games called Alchemy, but they are not the same.

There is another version of Alchemy at ( and another at Gamesloon ( Phyl. However, these do not have any ‘turning the runes’ and so it will be less exciting. I guess matching the sides will be more exciting.
