Use Mass Attack to Test Your Calculating Skills

The really cool thing about Mass Attack is that it is a game that is a bit different. There are so many games on line that are predictable, but with Mass Attack the ball is in your court, if you do not mind excusing the pun. Basically you have two scales. On one of the scales is a ball and on the other scale you have to put a ball that weighs the same amount. The ball you have to use comes from the top of the screen. You have to try and match up the weight. You are given the weight of the first ball, and then by dragging the other ball to the other scale, you have to match it up as closely as possible. To move on to the next level, you must get the correct size matching up to the first ball, in weight, of no more than 5.
The first time I played Mass Attack, on only level 1 (there are 50 levels in this game) I did terribly. My "estimate" was 255 points apart (so that would mean I was 250 points away from what one needs to progress to the next level). But then I got wise and a bit better and by the fourth time I was down to just 20 points. You have 3 lives in each attempt and you can use these by adding balls to either of the scales. The more you drag a ball, the heavier it will be, but it does take time to work out just how heavy you are making a ball (as my first few attempts at this game proved). Still, it does seem that the more you practice, the better you will do. But even after having played Mass Attack for a few hours, I was still no further than level 4. But it is the kind of game you want to come back to again and again to see if you can improve your score as it takes a bit of skill and thought which just makes it more fun.

Risk - board game

Risk is a good board game. In this game you have to defend your territories and gain new ones, all at the roll of the dice. You're the General in this version of the classic board game Risk, brought to life amid cinematic music and vivid visualizations.
Compete against one of the computer Generals or challenge your friends. The graphics donate to the interesting atmosphere. I am sure that every player will enjoy playing this game, even if he doesn't like this type of games, because this game is very fun and fascinating.
