Candy Crush Saga or Words with Friends? Which Apps Do you Travel With?

words_with_friends_ipad_2.jpg A few years ago, the introduction of Words with Friends was the big news of interactive games for our smart phones.  Best news was when Alec Baldwin refused to turn his phone off when the plane was ready for take-off.  Angry Birds was such a success, you see stuffed animals in every toy store now.  They also have a new Star Wars version out.  Thought I would share my favorite apps that keep me entertained for hours.

Ruzzle was recently introduced to me by some friends as an upgrade to Words with Friends.  I prefer it far more than Scramble, as it doesn’t have silly freeze or add time buttons.  You really just have two minutes to find as many words as possible.  Cross word game with a timer.

I’ve also fallen in love with Candy Crush which is great for your iPad.  Similar to Bejeweled but a variety of candies replace the gems, and a variation in goals keeps it far more interesting.  This has replaced the days of Temple of Zumas as well.  It does require friends however, as you can’t move on to the next level without friends helping you.

I’m still a sucker for simple old fashioned game of Backgammon.  There are so many versions out there, I just got for the simple ones that don’t kill my battery and allow you to play alone or online.

Want adventure, check out Castle TD, Defender, and Dinosaur War…all are based on building armies and defenses to stop enemies from destroying your home base.  But be warned, these games will suck the life out of your battery before you know it.

What is your top game?  None of my suggestions make the top list..but that’s ok.  I can’t wait to turn my phone back on once up in the air!
