We all get those days where there’s seemingly nothing left to do. Your bed is made, your cat is sleeping, the coffee mug is empty and there’s nothing on TV but reruns. Then, you look toward your computer. Well, you don’t have any games installed because it runs like a sloth and reading grandma’s reposts of fake news on Facebook doesn’t sound that all that enticing.
Unbeknownst to you, the computer in front of you has access to a wonderful thing called the internet, which is home to an endless list of websites designed to make time fly by like a fighter jet. These “time killer” websites are all free to use and can provide you with countless hours of enjoyment and, depending on which site you choose to visit, you could just learn a thing or two.
The aptly named “front page of the internet” is home to thousands of communities, each discussing a certain topic. Whether you’re into cars, gaming, fashion, food or something a little more ambiguous like images of bread stapled to trees, there’s a subreddit dedicated to it where you can say whatever’s on your mind. Or simply read what everyone else has to say.
This website combines the joys of online gaming with interesting pieces on board games and other more traditional, offline games. Here you can learn everything there is to know about real world games. Get started by reading their piece on The Best Card Games.
