    I am partial to the occasional game of Scrabble/Chess/Backgammon (via Facebook). Couldn't get away with playing 'proper' games...

    Doesn't surprise me, year in industry we used to have little competitions who could get the highest score in my team. Guess the google was probably the most entertaining.

    cant get enough time to play a real "game", but Defcon seems to work great. yes, executives are most likely can admit their addictives easier than the regular staff.. that's obvious enough.

    Bookworm is one of the most addictive games. Ever. My boss is always playing Solitaire on his crackberry during meetings, but for some reason it doesn't hinder his ability to pay attention.

    Plus the fact that that a lot of execs don't have people passing by their desks all the time, unless they're in the newer type of office where the boss is in the centre, not in their own room.

    I don't really see a problem with it myself, a short break every now and again is advisory anyway, it'll keep people happier if they can play a quick game of solitaire or whatever every now and again, and happy workers are productive workers. Obviously there's a problem if they spend all their time gaming.

    I use to play DN3D at collage just to unwind at the end of the day and a bit of cs 1.5 in the lunch break, but that was about it.

    Sadly, they took solitaire off the computers at work. and they're only networked together, so no internet for me either. but i come home and play bf 2 or doom 3.

    Well. Last time when I was a trainee at a semicon company, I played Warcraft III Defense of the Ancients (DotA) in the office on BNet using one of the engineer's PC. I carried a zipped Warcraft III folder in my 1Gig pen drive and used it in the office. After hours while waiting for my ride home.

    We have WoW installed on our computers. As long as its after hours, or on lunch breaks we can play. Not enough time during the actual day to get stuff done. Love my job.
