Pick 11

The objective of Pick11 is to clear the game field by summing the open tiles to reach a total of 11 points. A completed combination will disappear. You will advance to the next level after all the tiles have been cleared. All tiles on the table are arranged in six levels. You will get a different bonus for the combination of 11 points depending on the level it lay on. The top deck tile can be used for combinations too, but no points are added for this one. Push the deck to throw in a new tile to the field to open more combinations. After the deck is finished you will get another one, so don’t worry about it. With every consecutive level you will have less time to finish, but more bonus points to collect. Additional bonus is awarded for the time left by the moment you finish.

Brainiversity

To stay fit and healthy we should regularly exercise our bodies. And the brain is no different. According to research the use of brain training programs and games can have a positive impact on your mental fitness. Brainiversity is a brain training game designed to stimulate your brain with 16 different activities covering Language, Memory, Math and Analysis. The game includes a Daily Exam mode that records your daily workouts – the results of which are viewable on a monthly chart. You can even compare your results with other users on the same computer.

Your host, Edison, will keep you informed of your progress and will occasionally make jokes, give you some fun scientific facts and let you know if someone famous was born on the day you are playing.

Pet Shop Hop

Herding cats is nothing — try running an entire pet store! For decades your family business has offered pretty fish, cuddly kittens, furry rabbits, adorable puppies, and feathered friends to customers from the neighborhood. Times are changing though, and now MegaPet Superstore is threatening to put you out of business. Grow your modest pet shop into an exclusive boutique and increase profits to avoid being gobbled up by the competition!

Solitaire Epic

Solitaire Epic features over 110 fun levels and three different solitaire games in one: Klondike, Tri Peaks and Matching! In Tri Peaks you match cards ranked one higher or lower than your playing card, trying to remove every card on the play board. When playing Matching, your goal is to remove all cards by matching identical ranks. And in the old favorite, Klondike, you organize cards in alternate color suits to clear the board.

Snakylines

Explore Crocodile Island lost in the ocean to find the treasures hidden by an ancient civilization in a mysterious and delightful ice cave high in the mountains. Place the colored balls four across, vertical, or diagonal in one of two game modes.

CrazyTrain

In CrazyTrain a small fast running locomotive is on its way. Your goal is to help him overcome all obstacles and gain as many points as possible.

Mahjong Epic

Playing Mahjong Epic could not be simpler! You goal is to remove all the tiles on a board. To remove them, you just click on pairs of identical tiles. Some tiles cannot be removed. If a tile has another tile on top of it, or it has tiles on both its right and left side, that tile is locked, and cannot be removed. If you get stuck, you can undo your moves all the way back to the start again!
