Status of the Flash-Based Games

LATEST: *GOOGLE CHROME (9/20/18): As of version 69 of Google Chrome, to play the Flash games you must re-allow the Adobe Flash player every time you close and re-open the browser. The "always allow" feature is gone. (See below for screen image.)

WHAT'S GOING ON: You may have noticed it is getting trickier to open the Flash-based games on my website like Scrabble Sprint. This by design of the browser companies.

Through this year and next (2018-2019), the major browser companies will restrict Adobe Flash more and more. They are coordinating together to remove Flash from the web entirely. Near the end of 2020, the Flash games will stop working in most browsers.

This is not what I personally would want to see happen. Unfortunately it is out of my control. The browser companies have their reasons.

I will do my best to keep the Flash games going as long as I can. And all is not lost. The HTML5-based brain games are not affected by the slow death of Flash.

HTML5 is a different, newer technology. It is enabled in your browser automatically without the need for a plug-in. The HTML5 online games should work long into the future. So there will always be free online brain games for you to play on this site.

Below I will log browser changes that affect how to open the Flash games, for as long as it is possible to do so.

*GOOGLE CHROME (9/20/18): As of version 69 of Google Chrome, to play the Flash games you must re-allow the Adobe Flash player every time you close and re-open the browser. The "always allow" feature is gone.
