Games with Random Flash Action?

I'm looking for flash "games" suitable in content for a preschool child (ie: no gore, violence, etc.) where you click the mouse or press a key and something happens, but where you're basically just creating random action. For example, clicking the mouse on the screen might cause a "firework" to deploy or a bubble to be created or burst. Any suggestions?

3D Physics toys.

A few years ago I came across some cool OpenGL 3D physics demo programs. Basically, they gave you a surface with various objects on it, and you could click and drag the objects around, and watch them bounce into other objects - knock down bowling pins, roll along the floor, all that stuff. I want to find them again, or possibly something much cooler or newer - any ideas? [more inside]

Spin the Bottle or Similar Games

Do most cultures have some version of "Spin the Bottle" or other kissing games? What kinds of similar games does the coming-of-age crowd play in other cultures? Did you play these kinds of games when you were growing up (and where are you from)?

Redoing the games closet...plastic bins?

Where can I find inexpensive plastic bins that I can keep my board games in that fit the game boards and all the pieces? I've been googling for over an hour and I can't find any 16 x 11 x 2 bins anywhere other than The Container Store. Call me cheap, but I don't want to spend more for a container than I spent on the game in the first place, and at $15.00 each, the Container Store is out. Any advice or recommendations on how you've stored your board games in plastic containers would be appreciated. [more inside]

Spacebar keeping me from playing games.

My spacebar works when I type. However, when I try to play certain games, such as the recently mentioned Manifold, or some of the downloadable games from Big Fish Games, where the spacebar is used as a game control, nothing happens. I've tried two different keyboards, no difference. I'm running XP, if it makes any difference.

Recommendations for Real Time Strategy games

I'd appreciate some recommendations for PC based strategy games. I've really enjoyed playing Age of Empires and Caesar 3 in the past and was wondering what other newer games I could try, that are along the same lines. I tried the newer releases of the AOE franchise but find that I enjoy games that are set in ancient civilizations more . As far as playing hardware goes, my laptop has 2 GB of RAM and a pretty decent (I think!) video card (ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 with 256 MB of video RAM). Thanks!

Wolrd-building rpg

My friend mentioned a free table-top RPG that was available as a pdf on the web. All the players were gods, and with a point system, would create a fantasy world together. There would be a series of turns, symbolizing epochs or ages of the world. I don't know the name or the authors. Anyone hear of it?

Help me deal with Xbox withdrawal

My Xbox 360 is in Microsoft's Xbox hospital being repaired and I'm jonesing for some game time, even if I could just play my original Xbox games. I remember back in the NES days you could rent consoles but not so much anymore, I assume because of the complexity and Faberge egg-like delicacy of systems like the 360. But is there someplace, anywhere in the greater Phoenix (AZ) area that I could rent a system? A first gen Xbox would be fine. Failing that, any other creative ideas besides using my computer for games which I've already tried? I'm in the Chandler/Gilbert area FWIW.

New PC games run slowly on large LCD monitors?

I just bought a pretty high-end Dell PC with a large LCD monitor. It's got dual Core2 CPUs @ 2.66GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and a decent graphics card. The monitor is a widescreen 27" Dell Ultrasharp. So far, I like the PC. But I was disappointed to find that the first PC game I tried (BioShock) runs TERRIBLY. The game does run pretty well on my slightly older PC, which only has a 19" monitor. So, I think the large, widescreen monitor is the problem. Is that correct? Are there tricks to running the latest games on a large LCD monitor? Many thanks in advance for any advice and insight.
