Angel and Frieda Enjoying Milkshakes From Snoopy's Street Fair
My daughter sent me this "Snoopy Snap" which you can do from the game "Snoopy's Street Fair" which is a very cute game, although like SO many other Facebook games it always offers lots of tempting options that cost REAL money. I mean, I can't blame them, but some games are kind of "worse" than others with what they let you do for free and what they want you to pay for. I mean, I don't expect to be able to customize Snoopy or Charlie Brown's house down to a choice of JoAnn's or p kaufmann fabric, but sheesh, at Christmas time I don't think there was one "free" decoration for the Christmas tree. But it's fun enough to play for free, and it's very cute. These companies have to make money and cheapos like me aren't helping them pay the bills, lol.
So I mentioned in a previous post that I was enjoying Words With Friends. Well, I'm not enjoying it as much anymore, lol... I *thought* I was a fairly well-read, intelligent person with a pretty good vocabulary, however, in the first week or two of playing Words With Friends I could not believe how many words people were playing that I had never seen or heard of!! Ok, I know since I hit 40 the brain cells are starting to die off but, wow! I am much dumber than I thought!! Well, finally somebody kindly tipped me off that there are apps and computer programs that you can use to make the best words out of the letters you have - even helping you maximize DL and TL spaces and the like, as well as lists of obscure two and three letter words to play, etc. etc. etc. :-/ Ok, #1 - Um, isn't that cheating? #2 - If I were playing you face to face I would not, on my turn, turn to my computer to find my next move - would you? #3 - That doesn't really seem like fun to me - to let your computer figure out some of your moves? But I guess that's just me. I'm also not super competitive, so maybe that's part of it. #4 - The least you can do if you're doing this is LET YOUR OPPONENT KNOW so you can BOTH play with "help" because it's not really very fair to use your computer to help you make words no one's ever heard of while I'm only using MY BRAIN, now is it?? Sheesh! Blah. Whatever. (Btw, I *know* not everyone is doing this, but I'm kind of put me off the whole game - I can't keep track of who seems like they're getting help and who is just playing brain-to-brain with me - it's sucked the fun out of it.)
Have you tried Zynga's Drop 7 game? That's a lot of fun, but once I figured out some of the strategy the game can last a looong time...although I still am not very good at getting rid of the "1s" - I end up eventually with the bottom rows filled with them...
And of course I'm still playing Farmville. There's a rumor we may finally be getting "shared storage" across all the farms, but I'll bet that will cost Farm Cash (= real money). Don't forget to check under the game window for the occasional surveys you can do for a couple of farm cash - I did one today for Turbo Tax, took about a minute. Over time those Farm Cash add up! Also, in case you don't know, there is an official Farmville Blog where they publish the "Quest Guides" so you can see what tasks lie ahead and plan accordingly. And regarding all the quests lately - it got too stressful for me to try to complete them all, so I just look ahead to what prizes are offered and I don't even bother with the quests unless there are prizes I want. The game is much more enjoyable now. I have enough stress in my life, I don't need to be worrying about my blueberries withering, lol!
What Facebook games do *you* like that I should try?
