Swiss Thomas, he's got me addicted to his web version of Mahjongg Solitaire - I'd never even played any version of Mahjongg until Tuesday, and now I've had a game on the go in a background window (well actually a background tab Firefox fans) for the best part of the last 2 days. Very addiciting, but also very easy to dip in and out of while you are working. Techies will love the fact that it's written in DHTML so no plug-ins are required, what this means for all of us though is that you can keep playing even when you go off-line once it's loaded (as if you'd ever go off-line though).
point'n'click game is fortunately, for us non-Japanese speaking folk, available in English (click here to play the Japanese edition), but I still don't understand the game. "Escape The Bar"? Why would I want to do that? I can see in the game that the bar quite clearly hasn't run dry yet, so it makes no sense whatsoever [subbed by Beebo & Helanren]. UPDATE: Voting on this game has been adjusted to counter-act the effect of spam votes.
Brady's Beasts: Monster Quest is really a very large point'n'click adventure, I feel like I have been wondering around the cemetery for an age for instance... because I have. Fortunately this whole world, well ok town, is rendered beautifully and it's a pleasure to walk around, I know some people don't like registration with games, it doesn't bother me, but it makes sense here because unless you really have huge amounts of free time (like you are skipping lectures/work/etc) you're going to want to quit out at some point and come back to the game. Although that is a bit of a wrench. The game it's self is relatively simple, although the size of the area you have to check out is quite a hindrance (in a good way), and there are several "missions" for you pick and try along the way (you can even do them simultaneously - I did by accident). What is difficult is the "sub-mission" of collecting the card deck - most of these are imposssible to spot on screen without the aide of your trusty [TAB] key. Fortunately I have no scruples in that regard. Anyway, enjoy the game [subbed by winniethepooh].
Did you, like me, make the mistake of going to work today? Well mark this date (first Monday of Feb.) in your diary for next year, as today was 'National Sickie Day'. More workers will/did call in sick today than on any other day in the year. Why don't we just make it an official national holiday and be done with it? BTW - the findings mentioned in the article are from the UK, but I think it's a safe bet that this applies the world over.
Pash is another entertaining point'n'click adventure that you may have already played over at Nitro 59, Nordinho or Gamershood some time back. While it's a nice game, and it's the first time I've played it, I'm not sure what the deal is with submitting games from the point'n'click history books - are there no new games out there?

Inner Nemesis III is a new point'n'click adventure for me, I hadn't seen it before, and I've spent some quality Sunday time clicking my way around (it seems odd to have an adventure in HTML rather than Flash for a change). However a quick search around has shown that this is actually quite an old game, so apologies if you've played this before over at Nitro 59 or Nordinho a while back. One of the best things about the game, given some of the games I've seen recently, is that everything appears in English and French, giving you a bit of language practise whilst you play [subbed by anonymous].
zZzZz game gives you some practise at staying awake at your desk, which is always a useful skill to have [via flabber].
Room Escape V1 offers some good traditional point'n'click room escaping fun. Now what's that password...? [subbed by brian]
Toilet Quest is a point'n'click game with one obvious goal, a short time limit, and only two items to collect. So cramming so many bugs into the thing must have been difficult [subbed by "me"].
Pursuit Riddle is another one of those on-line puzzles that try to get you to use your brain, as you type URLs, load pictures into graphics packages, view HTML source code, etc, etc. Ouch. This one claims to be different though as you can choose the path you take through the riddle, although one of the paths I tried to take appeared to be broken. Or was that part of the riddle?

The Island I think I have successfully completed it. Not the most satisfying point'n'click adventure I have ever played [subbed by Helanren].
Industry II is the follow up to "Free The Balloon" (which was apparently also known as "Industry") and is another frustrating little point'n'click where it's all about finding the right tiny little things to click in the right order. You'll be pulling your hair out. Fortunately I have shaved mine off, so at least I'll avoid some pain [subbed by SteBu & Mystery].
