!Merged!



!Merged! is a very interesting board game for Windows. It is a Windows 10 App which is available at the Microsoft store. The game is a little bit similar to one of the most popular board games: Tic Tac Toe, in which you have put all the identical marks either in a row, column, or a diagonal.

Instructions for playing this free board game:

On the right side of the board in the game, a dice is shown. You have to place that dice on the board by drag and drop method. If two dice are shown there, you can rotate them before placing on the board. Your aim is to make the dice disappear from the board by making certain combinations. If all the empty spaces on the board will get occupied by dice, the game will be over and you have to start a new game.

Every time, the dies disappeared, a new dice is formed on the board which contains a successor of the previous number. When you place three identical sevens, all the adjacent fields will be cleared.

Your current and the best score are shown on the screen.

One disadvantage of the game that I found is that, it does not have instructions to read. This makes it time consuming for new players to learn how to play it.

7x7!



One more game similar to the !Merge! is 7×7! It is a Windows 10 app ideal for kids as well as adults. The playing procedure is almost similar to !Merge! but the instructions are a little bit different. As the name of the game indicates, 7×7! comes with a 7 x 7 square matrix.

How to play this free board game:

Unlike !Merge!, the game displays colored blocks in some of the sections of the matrix. With time, the number of blocks starts increasing and the empty space in the matrix will get occupied very fast. When all the empty spaces in the matrix get occupied by the colored blocks, your game will be over. Hence, your motive is to make them disappear quickly, so that there will be more empty spaces on the matrix. To make boxes disappear, connect 4 or more blocks in horizontal, vertical, or diagonal lines.

The game is not so simple as it sounds. After some steps, game starts filling random empty spaces with black color for every selected block. This means, you cannot place blocks in those spaces. At level 1, you have to place 20 such blocks. Your progress, score, and best score are shown on the screen.

  • The Sleighs must not be adjacent to each other in any direction.

I have added this game to this list only because it is suitable for kids as they can learn how to solve puzzles by playing this game.

1888 Ladders & Snakes



1888 Ladders & Snakes is a free snakes and ladders multiplayer game for PC. The main USP of this game is that you can play snakes and ladders with multiple players. But, all the players must be sitting around one single PC as it doesn’t support multiple PCs. You can start playing this game by selecting the number of players (2, 3, or 4 players) and then rolling the dice in turns. Rolling the dice will allow each player to move their pawn to the numbered box based on the number achieved. The motive of each player will be to reach the 100th numbered box. But, in between there will be some twists known as ladders and snakes. If a pawn reaches the bottom of a ladder, then the pawn will climb to the top and if it reaches the head of a snake, then the pawn will move down to the tail of the snake. Once a player reaches the 100th numbered box, the player will win and the game will be over.
