HD Online Player (The Bible Miniseries 2013 720p 21.81)
biship was the first online game that i stumbled upon. it was also my first face-to-face with the game. housed in a small portable kiosk that looks like a child’s stuffed rabbit, it is a feel-good game, with folks coming out of a rabbit hole to learn about faith. this is a bit more complicated than others.

this civil war artillery combat game that looks like a cross between battleship and risk involved a long replay process until the game could be determined. students had to load up the game and play against the computer, the score of each player at the end of the game being his/her actual skill/ability. i originally pulled the trigger on this one, but a nice little write-up was included at the bottom of the game information under the title of “notes on game play.” it is well worth a look.
this netter’s game, created by david parker and bob garland, looks like a huge nerf ball, although this one came with balls that could be shot out. each player has a laser gun, which he/she fires to hit the opposing players computer-controlled laser. other players hit the opponents’ laser with their own laser, and the object is to eliminate the other players. i really like these types of games and found this one to be pretty challenging. (b+)
multiman is the third oldest of the five online games in this list. this one was invented by abe nofziger, who apparently created this one before he created the first donkey kong and space invaders. i really like the use of the orange and blue colors in the game. (a)
