Before I started playing Mario Kart, I stumbled on a few simple online games that I thought were pretty neat.
The first one is called Free Rice. The object is easy. You are shown a word. You pick (or guess) from one of the four definitions. If you’re right, they donate 20 grains of rice to the UN. It’s addictive too; I got up to about 400 grains of rice in just a few minutes.
The second game is Type Racer. It’s another simple concept. You type in a phrase or quote from a movie or book or song. While you’re doing this, you’re racing against other people, typing in the same thing. I can only manage about 60 wpm, which, when compared to the competition, isn’t that great.
