10 Best Bathroom Break Games
Everyone does it, but no one talks about it. No, we're not talking about picking your nose when you're driving, we're talking about playing games during private time in the bathroom. It used to be magazines and books, then Tetris on the original Game Boy became our toilet entertainment for years. Now with the explosion of apps in the App Store, what are the best bathroom break games to play on your iPhone or iPad? We flush down the bad ones and let these 10 hits float to the top of our list.
Words With Friends
Since you've got a few minutes to kill, might as well see if you can spell a seven letter word, get that 50 point bonus and show your opponent who the spelling champ boss is. Words With Friends is a great toilet time killer. Bonus points if you actually spell the word 'toilet' while on one.
After a long night of drinking, your stomach might be killing you the next day. Luckily, there's a game called Draw Something to keep your mind occupied while your stink kills all of the flowers in the house. Grab your iPad and doodle up a wonderful drawing of a Vegas nightclub or 99 bottles of beer on the wall. Take your time, you're gonna be in the bathroom for a while.
Cut the Rope
Cut the cheese as you Cut the Rope with this fun and enjoyable physics puzzle game. You'll be telling yourself, “Just one more level.” over and over again before you realize your elbows made your legs fall asleep and now you can't stand up. Ah, who cares. Sit there for another 30 minutes and play some more.
Sick and tired of your Facebook friends embarrassing you in Bejeweled Blitz? Now you've got plenty of solitary practice time as you focus on exploding gems instead of exploding the walls of your bathroom. Bejeweled Blitz games last only a minute, so get ready to play around 5-50 games depending on how bad your mother-in-law's cooking was.
The Pinball Arcade
Why not fire up a good old game of pinball while plunging something else in the bathroom? Pinball Arcade has plenty of tables to choose from, so you'll never get bored while you're taking care of business. Have to warn you though, it can be difficult trying to stay focused during multiball if you happened to eat a lot of Mexican food the day before.
This surprise endless runner was a huge hit when it came out and it's a game we play regularly here in the Arcade Sushi den. The adventures of Pitfall Harry continue as you swipe up, down, left and right, collecting treasure and seeing how far you can go. Just don't forget to swipe up, down, left and right after you've finished your other business.
Who can think of food at a time like this? We can! Nothing kills time like slicing up tasty strawberries, coconuts and oranges. Fruit Ninja's Arcade Mode is a blast, and it's the perfect time killer as you slice up your digestive system after eating too much fast food. Heeya!
Pigs smell and eat slop all day long. So a game featuring these bad piggies fits the wonderful smells of the only room in your house with tiles reaching the ceiling. Rovio's latest is a great break from the Angry Birds norm. Just don't get too frustrated if you can't squeeze that third star out. We're still talking about the game, right? Just making sure.
Sitting down taking care of business doesn't have to be a boring process, not when you've got a game like Jetpack Joyride to keep you occupied. Every game is different, with tons of content, bonus unlockables and the greedy need to collect coins and see how far you can get in the game. With the added volcano level, now you can play in a setting that matches the fiery hell that's going on in your stomach. This is one number two that doesn't stink.
Nothing beats killing time on the toilet like Angry Birds. ANY Angry birds game will do — original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio or Angry Birds Space. No matter which one you fire up, you'll be sling shotting your way into the fun zone. Stomach hurt? Who cares, you're playing Angry Birds. Cramps, sharp pains and the sounds of 500 whoopee cushions going off at the same time? Who cares, you're playing Angry Birds. These games are so much fun, you can even fake some bathroom time just to play them in private away from the family, which is why Angry Birds is #1 on our 10 best bathroom break games list.
