    Ooh, I have Scrabble on my ipad - I love to play it. I wonder if they have a Jeopardy app? Probably do. Is that how you play it on your laptop? Or do you have a non-app version?

    I was late to the Angry Birds scene too. I downloaded the free app and finished the levels there. I've downloaded the seasons version (not the regular one) but I've not started on it yet.

    Oh god, I need a 12 step program
    . I am not a game player and now I know why. I think I might also have angry bird finger.

    GA it was an iPhone app originally, but you can get it for other devices. On iPhone, using physics is an option because you can tilt the phone to help.

    Ellen have you tried Alchemy? I got addicted to that first. You get to make things by combining compounds and elements. Some are silly, but figuring out what to make is fun. I made tequila and thought I had discovered the meaning of life!!

    Only on the iPhones and some Android phones. I tried it and didn't see the allure of it.

    I play "Jeopardy!" on my laptop (MacBook White), non-app, which I got through the Apple Store online.

    I don't have an iPad yet (I'm saving up for one); my hubby has an iPod Touch, but I don't. He just got the Boggle app, and it's really cool, because you can shake the letters! Can't do that with a laptop...

    Thanks - I've got to look for that. I don't know if I could get the boggle app - I find the letters won't get out of my head, and I'm walking down the street hours later still thinking up words. But that's just me.

    I too am an Angry Birds addict. The game amuses me to no end.

    I'm an addict. I have Angry Birds, Seasons, and the new one, Rio...plus all the free trial ones you can get.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didnít hear me call shotgun.

    I know I'm in the minority here but I just don't get this game. I mean I get how you play it but I don't see how you get hooked on it

    Maybe in the minority, but you're not alone. "Shoot and hit" games don't hold my interest at all. However, word games and "Jeopardy!" and the like? Yeah, different story completely!
