Can you make the 3d chess board face a decent direction? Who the heck plays chess from the corner of the board? Yeah, it's 3d, we get it, now make it playable again.

Meanwhile javachess seems to be broken, grrr...

the crossword puzzle sucks -- I can't figure out how to delete or backspace!

Ahh, I was hoping for chess played on a 3d board. Hyper-chess, I believe it's called?
That would have been cool.

If you aim the soccer ball directly at the goalie in the football game and barely nudge it, he'll jump out of the way almost every time.

Hours of fun!

In general, the quality control of all the games in this list is lacking to a large degree. It's as if they went through one or two out-of-the-box solutions, and said: "Hey, that's just good enough to post."

Bah -- when I played the pinball game, the ball repeatedly fell through the paddles.

Lately I've been playing Couronne like crazy (Couronne is what I describe as the poor man's pool table... little plastic rings on a plywood board). Plenty of childish chatters, but plenty of others to play with too.

I completely agree re: Couronne. Fantastic fun - found it from a MeTa post, oddly enough. Irritating pick ups and pre teen chatter make the game a little less fun, but you can always turn the chat off.
