First, I have a short story up at the #amwriting web site today. It’s the seed for my next Spadena Street novel, NONE of which are completed yet.
My cool Second-Oldest Grandson likes to play on the computer when he comes to visit, and his go-to site is Physics Games which is, you know, “online physics-based games”. He got Youngest Grandson playing it, too. They were particularly taken with Dummy Never Fails, which seemed to consist of dropping things on crash-test dummies and making them bounce. The dummies, as well as the dropped things. But perhaps I don’t understand the game. My personal favorite physics game is bumper pool, but that’s just me.
Here are some more game sites they like:
And, OF COURSE, LEGO!!!
Tomorrow, Youngest Grandson is coming over. We might play online, but he also said he’s going to make up a two-player game for us. I went out and bought receiving media for my digital image enhancers (coloring books for my crayons). Because I’ve played with this kid before, I know two things: (1) This game of his will be structured so that he will always win and (2) Whatever picture I want to color, that’s the one he’ll want to color. So I (1) am prepared to lose graciously as an object lesson for him and (2) bought two copies of the same coloring book.
Speaking of coloring books, here’s a link to the Google search for online coloring pages.
And here’s a link to a cool thing called Crayon Physics Deluxe. The game costs, but you can download a demo.
So have some fun. All the cool kids are.
WRITING PROMPT: What would your main character build–or try to build–with Lego?
