I have been playing the NEW nine ball and eight ball pool games. I like them more than the older version of Pool that you had. My problem is with the nine ball game. It has some bugs in it. The biggest problem is playing a whole set of games. I select the Hard setting and Five games. It seems that if I am not doing well it will let me play all five games. If I am doing very well, it will reset after either the third or fourth game which results in a lower score than I would have with all five games. This happens almost every time I select the five game setting. It also seems to let the computer hit the wrong ball and not count as a foul, which it does if I hit the wrong one. It does let me shoot, but does not foul. Also, if I happen to scratch on the last shot with the nine ball, the  ball disappears but it still says I have to shoot. It makes me do this without the ball being present until I accumulate three fouls and lose the game. Just some observations I hope can be corrected. I like the game, but get discouraged when I am not allowed to finish what I started.

Flash technology is a BAD technology, harder to use than WebGL and Flash is insecure.  This change is beyond AARPs control. It is to the *benefit* of seniors as WebGL is easier to use and reduces security risk.

 

One of my disappointments with AARP games has been their use of Flash for games.  I prefer not to use it.

 

Thank you AARP for the upgrade which requires no new effort or money from your users.

You don't need to do anything to get WebGL.  It is built into your browser, unless you have an old browser.

 

The only browser you are likely to have that does not support WebGL would be Internet Explorer version 10.  There are many reasons to update from that version. 

 

If you are on Chrome/Firefox/Opera/Safari, you are all set.

I play Spider solitare, the new game is OK, BUT I do not like interupting the game because the bonus points are gone.  I do not care about the bonus points.


Thank you, Suzanne Lange

While I'm happy that there are so many games not going away, I didn't see EGGZ (contains sushi) going away. Can you do anything for that game?

You tell me my favorite game is discontinuing on November 27, yet I am unable to connect to it today November 3.  This is a poor way to run this.  I'm actually considering not even bothering.  Very annoying to say the least.
