Yeah, you had a wonderful holiday weekend. Were you watching the kids go find your hidden and brightly colored eggs? If a Star of David adorns your Bible, did you have a nice Seder with your family?
Monday is here. You're going back to work. Ugh. Burgers to the rescue!
Burgers is a page full of hamburgers, with a few chicken and fish sandwiches thrown in for variety. Mouse over to multiply them, and click to take a bite! This web toy was conceived and built by artist Guthrie Lonergan.

We've all been there, arguing over who has to do the cooking, cleaning, and washing for what feels like the 657th time this week, but this adorable couple seem to have the chore-deciding formula absolutely nailed down. It turns out the answer is simple: Mario Kart 64.
A very fun time waster for adults that might remind you of your childhood days because your weapon of choice is a crayon. With your crayon you'll need to draw lines and circles on the screen to help your ball touch all the flags on the level.
This time waster is a physics game as well, so keep that in mind as you're trying to solve the levels.

This project isn't really a game, I just wanted to offer people the opportunity to slam dunk on Donald J. Trump. I'm not a game dev at all, I hardly know what I'm doing, but much like Donald Trump, I didn't let ignorance or lack of technical competence get in the way of my dreams, which is to let people vicariously dunk on Donald J. Trump.

The Internet Pinball Machine Database — also known as the IPDB — is a comprehensive, searchable encyclopedia of virtually every pinball machine ever commercially made. The database currently includes 67,330 images of 6,104 games, 4,667 other game related files, and links to other pinball websites, grouped by machine. The database also includes pitch & bat baseball games, cocktail table machines, bingos, and payout machines ... when they have a pinball theme.
The data in this database has been laboriously gathered by the Editors over many years, from books, photographs, flyers, web sites, pinball manufacturers, collectors' personal records, and of course the pinball machines themselves. Most of the actual photographs in the database came from various collectors – over 2,392 different contributors to date.

The programmer of Atari's 1976 arcade game Starship 1 placed the first Easter egg in a video game, and then promptly forgot how to trigger it. Now, 40 years later and after a lot of experimenting, he remembered the right sequence of coin-dropping and control-whacking needed to set it off. HI RON!
Hmm. Does this go under the GAMES topic or the MUSIC topic? Whichever I choose, Dave will swap it.
Anyway, the guitarist for the rock group Queen, Dr. Brian May (astrophysicist) has announced that they will have a Queen themed version of the classic board game.

Listen, son, we need to have a talk. This isn't going to be easy for either of us. You are not my son. I'm sorry, I know this will come as a blow to you. But the fact is, no son of mine plays Oregon Trail like you do.

Quick, Draw! is a 'game' by Google Experiments. Can a neural network learn to recognize doodles? See how well it does with your drawings and help teach it, just by playing.
You are tasked with sketching out six different objects per game. The neural network has 10 seconds to figure out what the thing you are drawing is supposed to be.
Who remembers in the early 80's when the first laser discs came out and there was an arcade game named Dragon's Lair? The graphics were akin to a Disney cartoon and the game was very challenging. Well, some arcade owners cranked up the difficulty but others made it pretty easy to complete.
I must have wasted a roll or two in quarters on this bad boy before I finaly completed it but here is the complete playthrough of the game.
Bonus! Shortly thereafter, Space Ace came to the arcades. I never finished that game but now I can watch the playthrough for that one also.
