Games On My Slivr

Ever since Rigid and I got our Motorola Slivr's we've actually done more gaming on our phones than we've done on Xbox Live. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, but still...Its really cool. We've both got about 3 games a piece. We never download the same game because...well that would be pointless wouldn't it?

Currently my Bejweled score is 53000. Something like that. I know it's pathetic, but I'm happy with it considering the fact that I don't play it to beat my own score all the time.

I also have the Sopranos Poker game. I've never actually watched the TV show, but the game has Texas Hold'em as well as regular 5 card poker. It's really fun to play. As you start to run out of money you can bet your possessions...actually what you do is turn your possessions in and exchange them for money. Then you can restart a game with however much money you've got. I've even won some jewlery from the other poker players. I've spent hours playing that one

This month I bought another one of my all time favorite games. Mahjong by Jamdat. I used to be so into it that I ran out to China town and bought myself some Mahjong tiles. The damn thing is so heavy I don't like to play with them. But it's fun if all your doing is solitaire because the actual 4 person game is so hard to learn that you can't easily take any friend and teach them how to play. It's a nightmare playing with 2 people so solitare is the way to go for me. You have to clear all the levels to get to the rank of Emperor, so far it's actually been a little boring because it's so damn easy. Maybe the difficulty level will increase, but I don't see any function for that.

Rigid has a few cool games on his too, Blackjack, Snooker and Jewel Quest. This is also an all time great.

These little games are a great way to pass the time and we play them at least once a day.
