What are the best free games?

We all do enjoy, at some point of the day, some relaxation time.  Some people enjoy reading their books, doing the gardening or making some Elderflower Cordial, others enjoy games!  This week we thought that we would provide some ideas of free games, some available on all devices (computer, tablet or mobile) and some just on tablet and mobile.  Please do let us know which ones you enjoy too, by leaving a comment below!

Guy’s recommendation: 2048

This game is a single-player sliding block puzzle game. Your objective is to slide the tiles across the grid, combining the numbers.  You can slide by using the arrows on your keyboard or swiping your finger on tablet or mobile.  When 2 tiles with the same number meet, the system squares the number.  The aim is to create a tile with 2048 on!

Fun fact!

The game 2048 was made by a 19 year-old italian developer, in the space of a weekend! 

2048 can be played on any device!

2. Iain’s (Dad) recommendation: Golf Clash


Dad is missing the golf course, and can’t get enough of this golf simulation game!  Golf Clash allows you to play against other players from around the world, in 4-5 minute golf matches – all all for free.


Unfortunately Golf Clash cannot be played on a computer. You will need a tablet or a mobile to download the app. This game is absolutely wonderful when you get used to it, but may be quite difficult to begin with for beginners. Keep at it!
