Sorry! This game is only available on a desktop or laptop computer*.

But I want to play a game!

Don't worry—we have you covered. Many of our games work fine without you changing a single thing. Try Play Four, Daily Jumble, or Word Roundup.

I only have a couple minutes.

You've come to the right place. Try one of our 2-minute quizzes, such as How Strong is Your Vocabulary or Name that Thing. And then try ten more :)

I was really looking forward to solving a crossword puzzle.

Universal Daily Crossword is what you need.

Even if you have Adobe Flash installed, it may not be properly enabled (yes, even if you just played this game yesterday...it's weird). Please open the following link and go through the instructions to ensure that everything is set up properly: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html.

Or try making your browser window bigger. These games need a fair amount of space to run.
