Games That Cured My Boredom When I Was Recovering From Surgery

Back in June, I had a surgical procedure done in the hospital that had me resting in bed or laying on the couch recovering for weeks. I was pretty limited on what I could and could not do. There were only so many video games I could play on my phone/laptop, only so many books I could read and only so many tv shows I could binge watch before I ended up feeling bored.

So I did a little research and stumbled across a website that I have used quite a bit these past couple months: 

I’d like to share a few of my favorites:


Obviously, right? Who didn’t play this classic game on their computers in the 90’s and early 00’s? I actually still pick up a deck of cards every once in awhile and play Solitaire to pass the time. While that is fun, I still prefer playing Solitaire anywhere I can online. I like that the site offers different versions of Solitaire but I like to stick to the Classic version.


I don’t remember the exact age I was when I completed my first Sudoku puzzle but I know ever since I did, I was hooked. Very few people I know like it but to see it on was a real treat. I like that instead of the usual 3 modes this one has 4: Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert. Sure I may have at least 20 Sudoku puzzle books sitting around my home right now, but I personally prefer filling them in on my pc/laptop.

The interface for this particular game is easy on the eyes. It’s not hard to figure out what to do. If you like brain games, I highly recommend this one.

Word Search

I was, believe it or not, known for my Word Search skills throughout my school years. We’d get one as an assignment quite often and I was 9 times out of 10 the first one to always complete mine. I was so good at them that others would always want to copy my paper. I don’t know how anyone could find word searches to be boring. I’ve always enjoyed them and I like how simple the website is for this particular game.


I’ve never been the best at Crosswords but I still enjoy trying to figure them out. With this particular version of it, if the word you use is wrong, it shows up red. If it’s correct, it shows up green. I really like that. No having to deplete a pencil eraser due to several mistakes. Haha. Thanks to Crosswords, I have learned many new words throughout my life and I am always eager to learn more. offers a variety of other games aside from these. I haven’t tried every single one but I like to go back and try out a new one whenever it suits my fancy. If you are looking for something that is free, fun and easy on the pc, definitely check out this site.
