Free Online Games - Conquer Club & Everwars

This post really has nothing to do with pizza driving, but some of you may be interested.

I've been playing 2 different online games recently that I have found very enjoyable.

First, ConquerClub. This is a Risk-type game where you have armies and try to take over the world. You can play at your own pace, logging in once / day to take your turn, or you can find some partners to play a real-time game.

There are team games, various maps, including the Great Lakes. One of my favorite maps is called USApocalypse, it's the United States after a nuclear bomb. Many of the states are renamed. Michigan is called "Cars", Iowa is called "Corn", and Nevada is called "GoldenPalace.com".

If you sign up through the link above, I might win a "premium" membership, allowing me to enter more than 4 games at a time.

Next, EverWars. This is a character-based fantasy battle game. You create your character (human, elf, dwarf, etc.) and then you go into battle. You basically choose someone of a similar level to fight and the computer simulates the battle in a text-based format.

If you win the battle, you get either an item (weapon, armor, spell, potion) or a skill point. Skill points are used to train yourself to use your particular items better.

If you sign up through the link above, my son gets a free magic item for his character.

If neither of these games catch your interest, you may want to check out this list of top 10 free games, which I found through the Carnival of Video Game Bloggers.

Again, these games have nothing to do with pizza delivery, but if you're bored this summer and have a computer (which you obviously do if you're reading this), you may want to give these games a try. The price (free) is definitely right!
