I like to while away a few hours on the computer every once and awhile. My go-to game used to be Spider Solitaire. But I have not progressed in expertise with any kind of vigor. In fact, I’m stuck in intermediate land with a 20% win ratio.
Pretty bad, I know. My average took a huge dip when unbeknownst to me, I was playing in the advanced level and lost every game for a straight 6 weeks. (Now, there is a humbling experience.)
I tried Farmville, but after having to babysit three plots of strawberries with no harvest in sight, I moved back to the city.
There is always FreeRice, the site where idle time can sharpen your wits and benefit others. Definitely worth it.
