Games like Guess My Word?

I learned about Guess My Word on here and now I'm hooked. I also learned about Doge 2048 here and I love it, but it takes too long. Same thing with Must Pop Words (although I didn't learn about it here). Suggestions for games that take about the same amount of time/talent/thought as Guess My Word?

Please help us be better at collaborative gaming

My partner and I are playing Borderlands 2 and World of Warcraft (WoW) together, which is great fun, but we are sort of terrible at combat. He's never done collaborative gaming (but has played a lot of Borderlands) and I haven't played games in years (but I used to play a lot of WoW). [more inside]

I want to watch really calm things.

Give me super placid media to engage with. Relaxing, tranquil, serene. TV, movies, and video games are all fine. Some examples would be Bee and PuppyCat, anything by Studio Ghibli and Knytt respectively. To be clear, however: I don't want stuff I can engage with mindlessly. I want stuff that I can pay attention to and follow along with and are interesting or humorous or even a teeny bit dramatic, but which are pleasurably slow-paced. [more inside]

Flash game about a female spy around WWI?

Some years ago I played a Flash game set around the time of WWI. You played a female spy, moved around a house & its basement, and picked up objects to use. Anybody remember what game this was, or the author's name? Thanks.

How do I free up my phone for more games?

I love puzzle games, like The Room, Room 2, Monument Valley, Tiny Bang Theory, Botanicula, all those kinds of things (I have, in fact, gotten many recommendations from others' previous AskMes). The thing is, these games all add up memory-wise. I have finished them once, but know that I will enjoy returning to them in the future after I've forgotten some of the bits. How do I move them somewhere else to free up memory in the meantime? Or can I just delete them and download them again later? [more inside]

Giant numbers (Ex: how many primes are smaller than the largest known?)

Many sites say that the largest known prime is "2^57,885,161 āˆ’ 1, a number with 17,425,170 digits." Given this and well known research about the density of primes, I think it's at least possible to estimate the number of primes between 1 and 2^57,885,161 āˆ’ 1. But I don't know how to do this myself. I really want the answer to this one (the order of magnitude at least), but I've got lots of these, and I'd ideally like more cool ones. :) [more inside]

Fun baby-shower me

I am looking for ideas for a (fun!) baby shower game for my boss who is expecting. The shower is happening in a restaurant with a small group of co-workers so it can't be too involved or outlandish. There's also that whole I-work-with-you atmosphere that makes things that I would normally think of for friends seem strange. Would be thrilled to see if anyone has suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Why are random games loading to my iPhone when I sync?

When syncing my iPhone 5 to my Macbook Pro, every time I connect it it tries to load about 5 games from my apps collection from the Macbook to the phone. It's always the same games, and this is a new problem within the past month or so. I haven't updated the OS or anything else -- is there some "autosync" option with certain games that I need to turn off? It's a pain to have to delete them every other day.

Casual Farm Game without IAP/Microtransactions

I've been really enjoying those casual farming games like Hay Day and Farm Ville, but I hate the way everything is designed around getting you to shovel money into them. I just want a game that lets me grow crops at a leisurely pace (so nothing with time pressure) without stretching everything out over multiple hours to try and tempt me to pay money to speed it up.

Email based interactive fiction - what was it?

Trying to remember a piece of interactive fiction where you signed up using your email address and over several days you'd get emails from characters who worked at an imaginary company. I think you could reply to them using a certain format and that would change the way the story played out. I would have seen it around 2006 or 2007, and I don't think it was new then. [more inside]

A book that's also a game?

There's several people I know that are big into gaming, (The Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, etc). They also like to read. In the interest of getting them something gaming related, is there a book or several books that function both as a piece of fiction and as a game?Not sure this sort of thing even exists, but figured if it does that would be pretty awesome as Christmas gift. Anyone?

1980s Commodore edutainment title about mixing and matching monsters?

DVD-ROM vs PC download

Hello--I see that the new game Civilization: Beyond Earth is available as both a DVD-ROM or PC Download. They're virtually the same price (just under $50). I'm wondering why this is--I would think that the download would be slightly cheaper since there is no physical item to ship.

What are some exercises/games/etc that can help with brain trauma?
