Ok, we all play games from time to time. Even I do.
If you hop onto Solitaire while you are waiting for a phone call, or just reach the end of your rope and play a little minesweeper to "clear your head", you are a casual gamer.
You know, it's that quick "Just Five Minutes Before I Go" kind of game. Play a quick bit of Bejeweled on your phone in the bathroom or on the bus, you are a Casual Gamer.
Ok, I've done that sort of thing. I'll admit it an it's a lot more productive than sitting at a PC looking angry or starting up FreeCiv and playing for hours in "background".
If you are on Facebook, you can play casual games there, and they will donate to animal causes like feed and shelter. The nice thing about it is that if you can get to facebook, you can help a furry friend while doing something you would be doing normally.
I just discovered this while hitting my daily clicks for The Animal Site, and thought I should share this. So I'm nagging everyone to give this a shot.
I'm also one of those people who laughs at Farmville addicts and all those other games, so this is really quite out of character. In fact, I block any of the normal social games on Facebook since I have WAY too much reading to do to keep up with career development sites and technology bulletins that float past all day, as well as posting things for my own duties here as Social Media Director for Wilton Manors Main Street.
Anyway, folks, I've been clicking on the links for The Animal Site for quite a while. You should consider doing it too, but if you don't want to do it there, you can follow my lead.
The Link for the description for the Casual Gaming is here, and you can read all about it.
If you are on Facebook, this link will take you directly to the page to "like" it.
