    Whether it is taking advantage of some overly-complicated variation on a physics game, or reliving 8-bit childhoods, Flash games are a common distraction.

    FOCUS: What flash games do you play and keep coming back to?

    Portal This is one of the few flash games I've played for more than one sitting because I wanted to beat it.

    The only other one I spent significant time with was Fantastic Contraption a few years ago.

    I put on my trenchcoat, then I jump in my van and go to the playground around 1:30 because that's when kindergarten lets out....


    ...oh, you meant like an online computer game. I dunno, that game with the stick figures where you shoot arrows at each other is pretty fun I guess.

    Not flash, but playable in your browser:

    <a class="postlink" href="http://www.conquerclub.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">www.conquerclub.com</a>

    It's a variation of RISK, so if you like that board game, you'll love this site. The best part is that, because of the way it is formatted, it usually makes it through browser security and you can play it on your computer at work.

    Here's a post I made in the video game topic;

    "Sometimes I find myself on the computer playing casual games. I'm used to them being simplistic, time-wasting garbage, but I've noticed recently that they've substantially improved in quality. In fact, three recent ones were really good;

    Cactus McCoy- Basically, a side-scrolling platforming brawler set in the West. The mechanics are surprisingly deep; the array of weapons is incredible and allows you to do some fun things, and juggling 5+ dead enemies in the air is sheer pleasure.

    In a way, the game reminds me of old platformers like Super Mario World or Donkey Kong Country; yes, it's simple to beat all the levels and the game, but the real fun is discovering the secrets. In the case of Cactus McCoy, not only are there 5 well-hidden treasures per level, but there are 5 objectives per level, which range from trivial to fiendishly difficult.

    Bullet Heaven- I've always thought that a vertical space shooting bullet hell game would be absolutely perfect for the Flash format, but sadly, there are so few of them. Well, this is an awesome exception; beating the first 20 levels is a moderate challenge, with only the final boss presenting any difficulty. However, getting an "A", or better yet, "S" rank on all the levels, unlocking the bonus bosses, and getting deep into survival mode is the true challenge and fun of the game.

    Formula Racer- A 3D racer. The controls and mechanics are painfully simple; just the arrow keys and space bar to boost, and yet, it is insanely addictive. There's also more skill involved than one thinks; getting first place on the last race with the default car is not easy.

    Also, the secret car you unlock at the end is both hilarious and a pure joy to play with, after the difficult hairpin turns your original F1 racer struggled with."

    Anyways, there are a bunch of other excellent ones.

    My all-time favorite is Drunken Masters.

    Two others I have played since just that post are

    Bela Kovacs and the Trail of Blood- An Eastern European film noir about a hard-boiled, retired, Hungarian detective investigating the murder of his niece.

    The only point and click Flash game I really enjoyed.

    One last favorite is High Tea.

    Basically, you're a British tea merchant from 1830-1839 in China. However, in order to get money to buy the the crates teas and meet the insane demands by the Queen, you have to buy opium and resell it at various ports.

    As you meet the deadlines, you are rewarded with extra ships, and the pace becomes more fast and furious.

    Not only do the markets fluctuate, and there is a countdown to tea deliveries, but certain ports are dangerous and will result in Chinese officials either confiscating your ship and opium, or being paid off with a bribe.

    You learn great economic lessons from this game like taking crazy risks every single time and never, ever having any solid cash left over, completely investing it all in tea and opium.

    It's been ages since I've played it, but Iron Dukes is pretty good. You go around, collecting treasure from the sea floor and upgrading your seamen.

    Rebuild is a strategy game where you try to reclaim your town after a zombie outbreak. There's a few ways to win the game, and it'll save your progress so you can do other things and come back to it.

    This helicopter game had me addicted for hours. You fly a helicopter that has a crane on either side of it, and you use those cranes to move objects and complete puzzles. The final stage is actually like a table-top puzzle requiring you to sort through all of the pieces and figure out the picture.

    The entire website mousebreaker.com has some cool games all around.

    Not a flash game, but plays right on your browser, is easy enough to pick up, and it's just a nice challenge that can break up the monotony of work.
    Basically it's a text driven game in which you choose a god, take control of a settlement, and are placed in a kingdom trying to gain more land than anyone else.
