The time wasters you'll find below are really much more than a way to pass the time. You'll have a blast spending any amount of time on these whether it be for five minutes or four hours.
All the time wasters below are safe for work and they're all interactive. You won't find videos or funny cat pictures on this list but you will find a ton of games, puzzles, and some sites that are so odd, they'll demand that you waste some time exploring them.
After you've taken a look at these time wasters check out my list of of the best online gaming websites for more online fun.
Do you enjoy number games? If so, 2048 will quickly become your favorite time waster. I wasted nearly an hour of perfectly good time the first time I played 2048.
Using only your keyboard's arrow keys, move the numbered tiles around together. Once two of the same numbers are next to each other and can slide together, they're added up. Keep going, with the ultimate goal of making a 2048 tile.
2048 can also be played via the web browser on your phone from this link. Yes, you can slide the numbers around with your finger!
Filler has got to be one of my all time favorite time wasters. The goal of the game is simple, you need to click to create filler balls so you can fill up 2/3 of the screen before you can move on to the next level. Avoid the bouncy balls because they will pop any filler balls that you're filling up.
This time waster is so much and I guarantee it will get you through a slow afternoon or a boring evening.
4. Magic Pen
Magic Pen is 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.
Lunchtimers is a time waster where you're given a set of letters that look like a throwback to those magnetic alphabet letters you use to play with on mom's fridge.
The twist to this time waster is that you're not the only one playing, there are other people online trying to create their own words and phrases. Will you work together to create new words or are you one who steals others letters to create your own poetic masterpiece?
The Falling Sand Game is a deceptively simple looking time waster. You have sand, water, salt and oil falling from the sky and you get to build walls, start fires and add plant material to see how everything interacts with each other.
This is a truly addictive time waster that will have you wasting time you didn't even know you had.
