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.

No idea about categories, but there are two what I think are casual games on Xbox 360 which get my vote, one being Zuma and the other Braid (purchased this morning after getting hooked on the demo!). wave

catsmom,

Can you name the Wonderlands please?
I know Wonderland is an Adventure Lite and Return to Wonderland is a Puzzle.

East Side Story is a full adventure so I won't count that one.

**************

Lex, Zuma is a marble popper and I can count that but I have no idea where to put Braid since it's a platformer. I really don't have a category for that.

Mysteries of Fire Island. All the wonderland games are puzzle games not adventure games. I've played them all so really I have no favorite one,,each stands alone, but Fire Island is the hardest.

Just glad you voted! yay Hope you are feeling better!

EDIT: Book of Legends is an Adventure Lite. You may add one more HOG, but TELL ME which one please, I already tallied your choices in.

EDIT 2: Gourmania is a HOG I moved it to the HOG spot so you are back to 10.

That's good. I had Book of Legends in Adventure Lite, but moved it over to HOG. Wow, never dawned on me that Gourmania was a HOG. It sure felt like time management with all that cooking going on. Are you sure it's not TM? I'm so confused.

It's a cross between the two, but BF considers it a HOG so that breaks the tie. lol
