Among Us

So simple and so addictive!  Every group you join, a different dynamic.  Will you do tasks?  Will you team up?  Are you the bad guy?  Every go-round, you play it differently.  Five bucks well spent!

Tap, tap, scroll, tap, likes, likes, tap, scroll, likes, bunnies.  So true ...

a completely normal dating simulation that is definitely completely sweet, innocent and normal

Okay this is brilliant.  And completely normal.  Stick figures in love!

Spring Falls

Wow this is beautiful.  The puzzles are so satisfying, with new game mechanics introduced so smoothly.  Make sure to play with the sound on.  Occasionally tricky, then it clicks into place.  You'll  want it to never end.

Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist

You sometimes forget all the work behind the scenes.  And tigers.

Il Filo Conduttore

Beautiful, simple and wonderful.  Slow down for a second and enjoy.


There is no score.  There is no pause.  Relax and enjoy.

Shutter Stroll

Wander aimlessly on alien worlds, take photos, and generally just chill.

A Short Hike

Wander around talking with friends, collecting things, and working your way to the only spot on the pixelated island with cellphone coverage.  Because really, that's the whole reason we  go hiking, right?

Surviving Mars

Sim Mars.  So re-playable it's crazy.  Addictive and entertaining.

FTL (Advanced Edition)

Two words: space pirates.  Avast ye scurvies, prepare to be boarded!  And shot.  And flushed into space.  And bartered with.  Unsettling that the rebel scum are the bad guys, but that's just me showing my age then, isn't it?


It's really pretty, totally clever, and has a fantastic noiresque soundtrack.

Baba Is You

You have to experience this fun game mechanic!  Who you are,  whether walls stop you, if water sinks you, and even what the goal of a level is -- they all change when you rearrange triplets of noun-verb-noun.  Simple.  Tricky!

Mortician's Tale

Mortician's Tale is utterly creepy, fascinating, and you must play it.


Overland by Finji is a beautiful, turn-based game, with fantastic sound and great story.  You'll find yourself escaping a level only to re-try it another way.  I love it.

Pioneers Bar -- New York, NY

So, do you still have the high score?

Ringo's Bar & Grill -- Beaverton, OR

"Small" tater tots is bigger than your head.  Pinball!  Pool!  Koozie!

Moxy Times Square -- New York, NY

Sure, go for it.  You liked the tidy and teeny room.  And you liked the bar for a first expensive drink, while you planned the next dozen out in nearby locales.  (Or hop a train to go farther afield.)

Café Gollem -- Amsterdam, NL

You had a great time here.  Go back next trip!

AC Hotel -- Houston, TX

Cool place, good location, get the valet parking.

Quick Coin One Laundromat -- New York, NY

This ended up being fine.  Better than others.  Go for it.

Element -- Chandler, AZ

If you've got to stay in Chandler, this works just fine.  There's a TGI Applewings across the street.  Waymo's service area is out here.  And the big lobby is a fine place to work all day.
