I've gotten into the habit of playing several HOGS/IHOGS at the same time. That is, I go back and forth between them depending on how much time I have and whether I want to really focus or not. Right now I'm playing one pure HOG by Spin Top, one CE IHOG, and one HOG with a bit of a storyline and a few puzzles. This is what happens when BFG has so many good games to choose from. smile Wondering if others find themselves doing the same.

I tend to switch back and forth between IHOGs, match-3 games, and time management games, depending on my mood. So, not exactly the same thing that you are describing, but I do bounce around. smile

I think I've got at least three of these casual games going on right now. It just depends on the mood I'm in or how much time I have when I take a break as to which one I play.

Some of them grab my interest so much that I play them exclusively though. Dire Grove and the Salem Witch Trials would be games I couldn't stay away from.


Gardens put to bed for the winter. Time to take a break!

Agree, Draclvr. Games like Dire Grove, Ravenhearst, and the like, tend to keep me engrossed until I finish. It's a matter of the storyline being so compelling that I just have to keep playing to see what happens next. These games are much more like adventure games in that regard. And I started out playing just adventure games. I thought that HOGS would be boring. But once I tried a couple of the really good ones, I was hooked. grin

Sparkle,

I was the same way until I played Dire Grove and now I am hooked and as I look at the boards I see that some times there more gamers here than at the AG Discussion board. The only problem I have is that after paying $6.99, which is not much, I play and delete and have nothing to show for money spent.I know I could burn to disc but there are not that many I would like to replay. I do have a few, Drawn The Painted Tower, Treasure of The Lost Kingdon, Return To Ravenhurst, Dire Grove and Alabama Smith ESCAPE FROM pompeii on disc and I will probably replay so maybe who knows maybe there may be more in the future.

Like dragging out a game, too. Will do like a 'chapter' in a game and then go on to the next one. Also playing a mix of hogs, match 3, and time management games.


Never resist a generous impulse.

You know, Lexxy, you can reinstall at any time any of the Big Fish games you buy. And, you don't have to burn the game to a disc in order to replay it.

Just go to My Account then Purchases in BF, and you'll see a listing of what you've purchased along with an install button. Actually, what I do is print out the list and make notes about each game so I know whether or not I'd like to replay it....or whether my husband would enjoy it. Works great.

Cappy is correct, lexxy. Just another great reason to buy games from BFG. Once you buy a game, it's yours for good.

What the.....? How did a message I posted in a complete different forum get here? Anyway I've removed it the only way I know how, be editing it away.

I only play 1 casual game at a time, but I often have 1 casual game and 1 adventure game started at the same time.

Absolutely Sparkle! I can't turn my computer on without doing at least one level on several casual games!

So many games, so little time.

Right now I'm going back and forth between five different games. I really need to concentrate on finishing one. smile But so many great games coming from BFG in recent weeks, it's hard to decide which one to buy or play next.
