Online games to keep you amused

While Tasmania moves towards 90% vaccination, we have lots of freedoms compared to other states. But if you find yourself in home or hotel quarantine, or just have some symptoms you don't want to spread around, you can find lots of interesting games in the App or Play Store, and many of them are free.

Jigsaws online? Why yes! They are best used with an iPad or larger screen but are also good on a large screen smartphone. Searching on any words like jigsaw, crosswords, Sudoku or word puzzles will bring up more options than you could imagine. Include the word 'FREE' in your search terms ("jigsaw free") if you don’t want to pay to use them. Just be aware that many the free versions have in-app purchases or pop up advertising to keep them free.

There is a games icon in the App and Play stores so as well as crosswords and jigsaws you can also find classic arcade games, video games, multi player games, card games and even pool.

If you are a Library Tasmania member you can also access their extensive range of games, plus comics and graphic novels. Everything you need to keep yourself and the family entertained without leaving the house or spending a dollar!
