I beseech you all... Fellow Cookie Addicts... do not click at work.

"I discovered Cookie Monster and the Cheat interface bookmarklets. What harm could it do? They're just local bits of java. No harm, no foul. So I got greedy... I couldn't have enough cookies.

It's Friday somewhere, right?

Friday Flash Fun: Ending, a hybrid of roguelike and puzzle game, or chess, or something. Maybe "it's like turn-based Gauntlet" would be a good description? There's an on-your-phone version if you're willing to spend a buck, too. DANGER: Very addictive to certain types. You've been warned.

Letterpress - Word Game

It's Boggle + Go (or Scrabble + Risk). It's by Loren Brichter. It's a wake-up call for Game Center. It's Letterpress - Word Game. (I know, it's Friday... sorry, Flash.)

My Dumb Quotient is 86

Dumb: The Game is an extremely addictive puzzle game, with the added addictiveness of a "world rankings" scoreboard to prove to the world just how smart you are. If you get stuck, the forums contain a LOT of hints. [More inside]

...woiyt! pop! ...woiyt! pop!

Fun & Joy is a addictiing little mindless game. Don't let the fact that it was probably written for younger ones stop you from zoning out. See also. [note: flash]

I'm a damn sucker for flash games.

Gyroball. [Flash, Addictive]. Remember Marble Madness? At least the controls on that game were orthogonal.

Can obsessive behaviours involving electronic community be considered an addiction, and the community itself an 'addictive substance?'

Push. No, pull!

As addictive as heroin, but without the needle tracks.

As addictive as heroin, but without the needle tracks. If you spent days on end playing tetris, don't even think about playing this game. It's too late for me, I'm already dead.
