Online games, brainteasers and other time wasters

There was a thread floating around here somewhere, sometime ago about things to do online to challenge the brain or just plain waste time.
I'm tired of Mahjongg Dimensions and Sumatra, so this is my new time waster.
Play Yarnz Game on AARP

What's yours?

I posted this on the thread, "What have you read recently." It was fun for a while until I figured it out and got the secret message from Dan Brown. It was good for about a day, playing with it on and off.

Windows Solitaire-- the XP version.

Hey, it's not easy to memorize the card sequence of the draw deck. And if when I get bored with that I can try a version of Hoyle's blackjack.

We play games on Pogo. Play Free Online Games, Internet Games, and Free Games | Pogo Games
You play for tokens, but have a chance at real money whenever you get a spin.
I usually play high stakes poker. It's fun playing against real people and you can chat on the side with them during the game.

I downloaded a W95 version of Double Freecell (2 decks) a long time ago. Still playing it on Vista, never liked the upgraded versions as much.

Also - Circle the Cat ~ Grandma Faith's. Once you get it figured out it's not as much fun, but it had me going for quite a while. All you cat owners should appreciate this one.

I try to avoid computer games for the most part. I'm aware of my addictive personality, and already spend too much time on this devil machine.
