Play All the Games in Google's Doodle Games Archive

Google is resurrecting older Google Doodle games to entertain us while we’re all stuck indoors. For the next two weeks, the search giant plans to highlight older popular Doodles as its featured Doodle of the day.

Check Out These Free Coloring Pages for Kids of All Ages

There’s a reason why adult coloring books burst into popularity a few years back—there’s something soothing about taking crayon, marker or colored pencil to paper and creating a colorful masterpiece simply by filling in what someone else already drew for you.

If your kids haven’t already blown through every coloring...

How to Get a Free Copy of 'Assassin’s Creed II' This Week

How to Get a Free Copy of 'Assassin’s Creed II' This Week

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II might be showing its age, but free is free.

The game came out in 2009, and there have been something like seven different sequels across five different time periods since. That’s fine, since every time I play Assassin’s Creed, I feel like I’m still missing some important part of the plot that I never quite got from the other titles. Going back to the series’...

Enjoy a Free Copy of 'Child of Light' for Your Windows PC

How to Get 30 Days of Scribd for Free, No Strings Attached

I’m a big fan of Scribd, mainly because I like crawling through the site for all kinds of fun PDFs and other books that I wouldn’t normally be able to read. And since my California friends and I are starting a quarantine book club, getting free access to the service—and that’s actually free access, not a free trial—couldn’t have been better timing.

That’s Scribd’s offer for those battling...

Where to Find Free Entertainment During the Coronavirus Shutdown

Sitting here in not-so-sunny California, I’m bored to tears as a result of the Coronavirus lockdown. And while I have video games to entertain me, and endless work to do (from home, of course), I’ve been looking for a better way to deal with the solitary conditions I, and plenty others, will be dealing with over the next few weeks.

Why You Should Stop Spending Money on Starbucks' Sweepstakes

Why You Should Stop Spending Money on Starbucks' Sweepstakes
