I love Kongregate. As a husband and dad, my days of having several uninterpreted hours to play games are long gone. They have hundreds (thousands?) of casual games you can play for a few minutes at a time.

I've been playing there for years, and have amassed enough points to be level 35 or so (for whatever good that does).


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

oh...and FWIW...they have a 'chat' feature in a window next to all games. However, I find (almost without exception) full of griefers, spammers, trolls, and 12 year olds who use words like 'boobies'.

If you mute everyone (like I do), it's actually a nice place to kill some time.
