acornia,

Book of Legends - Adventure lite
Musaic Box - Puzzle
Rooms: The Main Building - Puzzle
Rocket Mania - Puzzle

Gold Miner Vegas is an arcade game that I just don't know where to put. I was not tracking them since we really have few players here. I will not count it for now, unless I get a brainstorm under what category is fair. think

Please let me know when you finished updating so I can count yours.

All changes made! smile

Ana, I'm puzzled as to why Mortimer is a HOG. Basically, unless my memory is very faulty, it's like The Incredible Machine Series, where you figure out where to put what in how many moves. There aren't any hidden objects--you're given the stuff you can use at the start of each level. This is not Mortimer Beckett; this is a little purple blob--it is a BFG game, but it's 2005, if that helps.

Mortimer is here:

I'll eliminate it from Puzzles, but I'd love to hear your reasoning, if you'd be so kind?

My Bad! I played that one too so I should have known better. oops I was on auto pilot and I saw Mortimer and thought it was Mortimer Beckett. It can stay at puzzles, you are correct.

Well, I just think we have too many Mortimers around here. laugh Thanks for clarifying, and I put it back in. I hope my list is correct now. It's been fun to do this, but really hard to narrow down the HOGs.

jody, I removed Safecracker since it is really a full adventure/puzzle game and not a casual.
I'm glad you are finding new ones to play. I am learning of a bunch I missed too!

Acornia, I have tried to reach via PM, email and posts and waited 5 days. I made the necessary adjustments and no more additions can be made now.
