favorite long passage computer game?

So what's your favorite?

I've been hooked on spider solitaire for a while, backgammon on a nexus 7 gaining ground.

For a few weeks at sea what do you keep coming back to?

Re: favorite long passage computer game?

Always has been cribage, or reading. Still is LOL Connie and I have a 30 yr running crib game! with great bet's ! LOL we don't go 3 days without a game! For both of us, if we don't have chores or such, It's still reading, Connie got me hooked on a Kindle, and with our internet and Libray cards, we can read most anything we wish for free and don't even have to go to book places! It works for us, might be a little tame for some ! (but ya never heard or saw us play crib lol)

Re: favorite long passage computer game?

My underway hobbies these days are reading, harmonica, fishing, and chores. As a dad of two little kids my chores never end.

I have Grand Theft Auto on my Android tablet and I'll do an hour a week on that maybe.

Re: favorite long passage computer game?

Drawing programs are my favorite (inkscape, photoshop, and etc). Especially with a lot of plugins, to add weird effects, like fractal morphs and etc. I've spent hours and hours on night watch making photographs funky.

I also like sandbox games like Civilization, and etc.

In some modes, playing on the computer has been a great way to pull an all night watch. Better than caffeine or a good book. I sometimes do this to let everyone else get a full night of sleep and make up any deficit they've been running, it sometimes helps a lot to kind of refresh them if they've been getting run down and haven't been able to catch up on their sleep with the four/whatever hour watch schedule.
