An interesting and fun little game that will keep you busy for hours. This game has many of the features that have made both Monopoly and The Game of Life so popular both as board games and as software renditions. The goals for the game are simple, make as much money as you can and drive the other players out of business. You must buy and sell goods, buy and upgrade properties and collect rent whenever one of your opponents lands on one of your properties. It is not just a mindless game but you actually have to think about what you are doing in the game or you will not have any money left to take care of business when it is your turn again.

Flying Spinnerov – n. any small screw-on cap to a bottle of jug that, when trying to recap the bottle or jog with it, does a spinning dance around the top, then spins off in some unknown direction, and you hope that it landed face-up.
Flying spinnerovs are not uncommon, and most likely were created by imps that had invaded some plastics manufacturing plant. These little lids must be possessed, because, even though there is no room for a brain in their little colourful bodies, they do have a mind of their own. Usually they do their nastiest deeds while you are driving, and attempting to cap that little 20 oz bottle of water or soda. The cap will usually spin off, and land at your feet while you are driving, then you just have to hold the uncapped bottle until you reach a place to park, or at the very least, a red light. At home, flying spinnerovs usually consists of caps to large juice bottles or milk jugs. If you own a cat, and a flying spinnerov gets loose, then you might be very lucky if you can find it again. Most likely the cat will get to the flying spinnrov before you find it. If you do find it, and it is face up, know that you have defeated the imps in their naughty little game, but be wary. Another flying spnnerov will be lurking again soon.
Farm simulators are everywhere it seems, since the days of Harvest Moon, and those chibi farmers, or maybe even as far back as Maxis’ SimFarm. Here we are with another one, FarmCraft, and we play as Ginger, a redheaded young lady with a talent for tilling the soil and making things grow. There is lots of running around, planting, keeping the soil fresh with fertilizers and watering. You get new demands for different crops with each level and also take on raising some livestock. This is a fun little game that keeps your eyes darting around the screen as you click on the places Ginger needs to go, from plot to plot, to supplies, to the animals and so on. Time management games like FarmCraft are pretty addictive, so clear an afternoon as you clear some newground to plant your tomatoes, eggplants, and pumpkins. make sure to keep your livestock fed well so they can produce chubby little piglets and calves, too.
