These games work on desktop computers and tablets. They do not require the Adobe Flash Player. To play, click the "HTML5/Mobile" link on the game page.

As I mentioned, HTML5 games run well on desktop computers and on mobile tablets. They do not require any special plug-ins to run.

They even work on smart phones, although some of the games (such as backgammon) may look too small on a phone.

The games above have both an HTML5 version of the game and a Flash version. Go to the game page, then choose which version you want to play.

To play the HTML5 version, click the HTML5/Mobile link. To play the Flash version, click the Small, Medium, or Large link or Very Large button.

Many of the free online games on this site require the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to run. The HTML5 online games do not. The HTML5 games should work right away for you, no plug-in needed.

The HTML5 games should work in most browsers and platforms automatically. If you have trouble running the Flash games in your browser, try the HTML5 games.

In other words, no browser plug-in is needed to play HTML5 games. The code, which is primarily CSS and javascript, is built right into your browser. Nice, right?

More About the HTML5 Games

Adobe Flash games are relatively old technology. Also, they are being intentionally phased out by the major tech companies. By 2020, Flash-based games probably won't work at all anymore.

For that reason, I'll be adding HTML5 games going forward. HTML5 games load fast and use open-source technology that works well with modern browsers.

There's no logging in, no registering. Just go to the game page and start playing!

GAME TIP #1: Many games on this site such as Curveball were built with Adobe Flash. To play these games, you must allow the free Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser. If you don't see an animation in the red rectangle above, click in the red rectangle and activate your Flash Player. Then the Flash-based games should open for you.

If you see a message that the Adobe Flash Player is "blocked", go to your browser's Settings page and change Block to Ask First, if possible.

If the red rectangle is empty, your browser might not have the Flash Player. To check this, follow the steps on Adobe's Flash Player Help page.

GAME TIP #2: If you cannot get the Flash-based brain games to work, try the HTML5 brain games instead. HTML5 games do not use the Adobe Flash Player. They work in modern browsers automatically. All the HTML5 games are listed on this page.
