Games People Play...

Since today was Sunday, it was mostly a Day Off. I found a new computer game to play: Fastr. It shows a group of ten Flickr photo images, one at a time, and you have to guess the common tag. The faster you guess correctly, the more points you get. The clock counts down from 348 seconds, which allows for about eight groups. And it's online, so you can see the scores of other people who are playing the game at the same time. I don't usually play online games, but I was enjoying getting higher scores than the others. If you do the math, though, 348 seconds is almost six whole minutes, which is like forever to most Internet users, so they'd often wander off in the middle of a game. There's no shooting or explosions, either, so I'd be surprised if there are ten people on the Internet at once who would find this game interesting. I like it, though. Especially the penguin pictures...
