Why AARP Games are Changing   AARP games are being updated. This update is primarily being driven by a shift in the digital world, away from using Flash technology. Flash will be fully discontinued by its manufacturer, Adobe, by the end of 2020, and browsers have already started to phase out supporting it. A number of AARP’s games are created using Flash, and many of you have contacted us or commented in our Community forum about the increasing difficulty you are experiencing using them. These games now need constant re-enabling on your browser in order to play. Moreover, these popular games aren’t available at all on your smart phones and tablets. Support for Flash is on the decline, and so the issue is only going to increase and your playing experience is apt to continue to deteriorate. After careful consideration, we decided that now is the right time to prepare to discontinue all Flash games.   What You Need to Know   The good news is that we will be replacing the games going away with newer games, which use the faster, mobile-friendly technology called WebGL. With the new technology, there will be no need on your end to buy or download anything new. This will make all AARP games available to all players on any browser and device — desktop computers, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets. It also will provide a smoother and more secure playing environment without the need to download additional software like Flash.  Unfortunately, personal scores and leaderboard positions in Flash games cannot be carried over. Scores earned on the current WebGL games will not be affected. As this transition is happening, we pledge to be as transparent and accommodating as we can. We are dedicated to providing you a fun and challenging games experience! If you have questions, please post them on this forum. If you need additional assistance, please reach us at member@aarp.org or call customer service at 1-888-687-2277.   What Will Happen   On October 29*, we will add over 30 new games, built in WebGL. (*New date: previously scheduled for October 25.) From October 29 to November 26, we’re giving you an opportunity to continue playing Flash games, while getting acquainted with their replacements. We understand that this will be an adjustment, but many of the new games will be nearly identical or be very similar to the old Flash counterparts. Take a few weeks to try them on for size and maybe even find a few new favorites. On November 27, all Flash games will be removed, but the new WebGL games will remain.    Non-Affected Games Already in WebGL   Jigsaw  Jigsaw - Daily Landing Party Mahjongg Candy Mahjongg Solitaire Mini Crossword Slots - Hollywood Dreams Solitaire - FreeCell Solitaire - Klondike Solitaire - Pyramid Solitaire - Spider Solitaire - Tri Peaks Sudoku Sudoku - Daily Sudoku - Daily Diagonal Trizzle True?

In fact, that's one of the advantages of WebGL: you don't need anything special to play these games. You don't even need to worry about "re-enabling" anything on your browser, like you have to do with Flash sometimes. These new WebGL games will be supported on all computers, so all you have to do is find the game you want to play and enjoy!   Replacements Treasure Hunt is being replaced with the similar Space Hunt. Eggz has the new game, Sweet Shuffle, and the similar Eggz Blast. The destop version of Eggz Blast will be replaced with an identical game on October 25, but the version of the game available on mobile devices today will not be affected.

Question I would like to listen to something else on my PC while I play the games, so muting the PC sound isn't an option. Can the sound in the online games be controlled?    Answer The sound can be controlled on all the games I’ve played without adjusting your computer speakers. It’s a simple click on the speaker icon to mute the sound. The speaker icon is located either on the home screen before you start the game or under the menu tab for that game. It’s easy to mute the sound before you begin playing a game.

 Question  Are all games available on mobile phones and tablets?    Answer Some games you play on your computer are not available on your mobile device. AARP currently offers many games that are built using Flash-based technology. Mobile devices have stopped supporting programs that use this technology, so those games are not accessible on your mobile phone and/or tablet. To play all available mobile games, please visit All Games from your mobile phone or tablet. And, by the way, you can play AARP's complete collection of games on your desktop or laptop computer.
