I really like to play computer games. It doesn’t matter if it is online or the kind that you download. I am always up for the challenge and I like to learn how to play new games. I had the opportunity to check out the Big Fish Unlimited service from Big Fish, a website where you can download games to your computer (PC or Mac) to play without an internet connection or even just play online instantly via the Unlimited service.
Living in Florida during hurricane season, that is one of my favorite past times when the power is out and I can’t connect to the internet, so I also checked out the downloaded able games! Downloadable games are also great when you are traveling and don’t have internet on the plane or even on a road trip. You get the option of playing the game for an hour before you purchase to try it out. I think that is awesome because there have been times I have paid for a game and I realized it was really boring and I was so disappointed that I actually spent money on it. I love the try before you buy option. That way you are sure to get your money’s worth.
Big Fish also has the option to play games online without downloading anything. This part of the Big Fish Unlimited service is really what I love because there is no waiting for anything to download - all of the games are streaming and super fast!
They have all the traditional games such as solitaire, poker, slots, different types of Mahjong and action games. There are also original games that you can only find on Big Fish. So far I have two favorites. The first one is Tic-a-Tac Royale, I thought it was like normal tic-tac-toe but it has a twist. My other favorite game is Word Zen. Word Zen is a mixture of mahjong and a word game. Instead of having numbers and pictures on the tiles you have letters and have to spell out words. Unlike a traditional mahjong game you don’t have to clear the board, you have a point goal.
Some of the streaming games on Big Fish Unlimited are just amazing - fully animated action games, like my favorite - Grim Tales.
If you don’t have a computer and just have an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, Big Fish also has games available for those devices as well.
I know that some people are getting away from the traditional computer and switching to something more portable than a laptop. I think it’s great that Big Fish has all of their bases covered. They also have a forum where you can get help with the games or just meet some new people to chat with and discuss the games.
I really enjoyed playing the games on Big Fish and I hope you sign up and play too! With the Big Fish Unlimited service, you can access hundreds of new games each week - and you can access them all on the cloud with no downloading! It's extra exciting!

While this post was partnered, all opinions are my own!
I was a Big Fish member for ages. I love the hour trial for games. I probably downloaded over 100 games, just to find out that they really weren't my thing. I didn't know about the Unlimited feature, I was just a regular club member. Thanks!
NOOOOO, I don't need more games to be addicted to. Seriously, looks like a lot of fun!
Wow, I some of these games look like a lot of fun. Not that I need any more games to suck up my time. lol.
I really love Big Fish Games. They have some really neat ones that take up too much of my time!
Never played them before, but off to check them out!
That's really cool that you can either play online or offline. I'll have to check them out!
I haven't played these before I don't believe. I will have to check them out.
I'll have to check them out. My boys enjoy playing games online.
I haven't played any of these. I'm a big fan of word games. Addicted, really. I bet my husband would enjoy some of the Big Fish Games. I'm going to be nice and send him the link :o)
I like having games that don't require internet access, especially for the kids because then I don't need to worry about them accidentally making in-game purchases. I'll have to look into these.
Word Zen sounds like a game I would enjoy. 🙂
What a great collection of games! I think I could spend hours playing many of those.
Now that Aubrey's in school three days a week I have a little extra me time...I'll have to check these games out they look fun.
I used to play on Big Fish! It's been awhile though. I'll have to go check them out again when I have time, the Word Zen sounds like a game I would really enjoy!
I used to play these games. I like that there's so many choices. Now you have me interested and just what I need - another distraction!
Looks like fun!
