Are You Addicted to FaceBook Games?

Tuesday, May 28, 2013


I never thought I would say this—but I am thoroughly, positively addicted to at least 2 of the many FaceBook games out there—Words With Friends and BeJeweled Blitz. The others I have tried are okay and I will sometimes go in and attempt to play them (mostly the card type games like Pyramid Solitare)-but simply refuse to throw any money into them-any of them including the games I play consistently.

I have always loved Scrabble and that is essentially what Words with Friends is. The upside is that you do not have to keep playing until the game is finished—you put in your word and then leave—come back a few hours later and see if any of the people you are currently playing with have entered any words-in which case it is your turn again!

BeJeweled Blitz can keep me occupied for an hour or more or until my arm starts aching (I did something to my rotator cuff). This game got me in BIG trouble a couple of years back on a different platform! I won and I lost and suddenly at the end of the year I was sent a 1099. Luckily I was able to find what my losses were so owed no taxes!! Of course back then I was busy entering contests and playing against others-Now I play solo!!

Do you have any Face Book games that you can’t seem to stay away from?

I used to play Facebook games all the time but now I do more app games on my phone. Some can be horribly addictive!

I play Words With friends too! I have it on my phone. Love it!

I used to love Bingo on FB but it got so annoying when In couldn't win a game for days on end. I figured it wasn't worth the hassle anymore. :)

I get a lot of request to play on FB but have never yet played a game. I can see so many that are addicted and wonder where they find the time.

I never got into playing games on Facebook. I did play Words With Friends on my iPhone. Now I play WordFeud, (on iPhone) which is just like Words With Friends. My sister-in-law got me to switch. Other fun games are Ruzzle and SongPop.

Never played games on FB. Have some apps on my phone, but I get bored after sometime and give up.

I have never played games on Facebook. I have had a lot of people inviting me to play, but they are not interesting to me. If I play a game, it is one on my own computer or my Kindle and by myself. If I wish to play with someone else, I bring out cards, dice, or a board game and play with my family.

YOu know, I've never played any of the games and don't intend to....however, I've heard a couple of my friends say that they play Words with Friends. That's I MIGHT try, but really don't have time.

Until a year ago, neither my husband or I had played games on Facebook. Now he's hooked on "You Don't Know Jack". So far, I've avoided all requests, but I do like that idea that one can take a turn, leave, and then come back later to play again. That's the only way I'd have time to play online games.

I would believe you!
I was once sucked into something like those games! No time for them at this point at all. But I can relate easily.

No addiction is good, because you get no pleasure!

I have never gotten into the games. There is just never enough time to try them out. After reading your post, I am not sure that I even want to LOL.

I had to give up Bejweled Blitz because even when I'd promise myself I'd only play 2 or 3 games, I'd find myself still playing an hour later!
