When it comes to playing games when you are bored, the choice of games can feel endless. This article includes free games that you can play to pass the time and cure boredom, and they are also suitable for a wide range of ages to help you to choose the best game for you.
If you haven’t heard of Uno before, it is a multi player card game in which the objective is to be the first player to get rid of all of cards in their hand. Players can select to play against 1 to 3 competitors and players are dealt 7 cards each.
The important part of the game is that immediately after laying your second to last card you have to click the 1 button on the screen or else you will be dealt 2 more cards.
Guess Who is traditionally a two player board game where players each guess the identify of the other person’s character. After each choosing a character, you can then begin to ask process of elimination questions on the online game.
Connect 4 is a classic tic-tac-toe-like two player game in which the players alternately place pieces on a vertical board 7 columns across and 6 rows high, and aim to get 4 of the same colour in a row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. On Calculators.org, you can play Connect 4 against the computer or with a friend to pass the time and ease boredom.
Another traditional family game that is on the website is Dominoes. If you haven’t already heard of it, each domino is a rectangular tile, usually with a line diving its face into two square ends. Each end is marked with a number of spots, or is blank.
You can play the game online with 2-4 players and the aim of the game is to match all of your tiles before anyone else playing the game, with the least possible moves. You can choose the goal in the game, which means that the first player to reach that amount of points wins the game.
Simon Says is another childhood favourite of mine, and it is a popular memory game where players must remember which order the lights were activated and replicate it. In the game, any of the red, blue, yellow or green lights can be lit in any order, and the aim is to remember which order they flashed up in. If you guess incorrectly, the game is over.
