the new jigsaw puzzle is unusable.  way too small, and when enlarged it is still viewed in the same size window, meaning maybe half the pieces are not possible to see.  do your web people try to play these "improved games"?  please rethink some of these changes.

thank you

Be Super Careful when you go looking for AARP game substitutes: lots of SCAM sites out there

Message 93 of 920

WARNING TO MY FELLOW SENIORS:  lots of SCAM sites will attach themselves to your computers as you search for new games.

 

We have really good spam blockers on our computer (we're both computer pro/geeks). In October when AARP announced they were dumping my favorite games, I logged into a couple of other sites that said Mah Jongg Alchemy. I hadn't checked my email Spam folder in awhile, since I hadn't gotten the Porn and Scam stuff in years. I was shocked that since that date in October, I had hundreds of Porn and 'personalized' emails wanting me to click. NEVER EVER OPEN stuff you don't recognize, just delete them without opening. For example, "Costco has sent you a gift card, please confirm".  "Why haven't your replied?" so-and-so wants to meet you, etc. etc.

 

It dawned on me that there are always people new to computers who might not recognize this junk. Be careful folks!  IMHO, AARP should have taken the time to educate and inform before creating this mess.

 

We have Norton, Virus checkers and other safety features, and still this junk made it into my Spam folder. It's a pain to deal with, scrub our hard drive etc.

mamajanna, this is the same Eggz that was just discontinued here:  https://www.pch.com/games/arcade/eggz/gameplay. It says you need to create a free account, but I was able to play without doing that.

 

Edit: I played this a couple of times and, although it's the same game, it's smaller and the colors aren't as bright and some of them are pretty similar to each other. It also seems a little slower. It's OK, but the size makes it a little less fun.

Just saw the first of the "new" games I've often played (Mahjong Toy Box)...and I hope others will be larger/easier to 'decipher' that this one.  Geez—I'll need stronger glasses!!!  Why so small???

Very disappopinted.  Nothing in your announcement was correrct.  Neither the old games or new games were  accessible as of the first week in October.  I just tried to play the new games and cannot load them on my computer (windows 7).  And by the way, none of the new games are remotely comparable to eggz!

Why is the new Dark Demensions sooooooooo slow and SOOOOOOO  BIG.  Is it for the sight impared? 

 

I really liked the old version.  The middle game.  Tiles were easy to distinguish from each other.  Not so with the new version.  Can you regenerate the old game in the new format?

 Cannot play some of the games, they either sit in buffering, shows only a black screen or just doesn't fo anything.  Please fix this.

The new Pyramid Solitaire game sucks!   Can't imagine why you made that change.
