Girl Time Games

Girl Time GamingHave you ever found yourself wanting to take a break from everyday life? But not just any break, a break that allows you to really do something for yourself. Whatever your break from life looks like, sometimes it’s just nice to get away from it all. Even more importantly, sometimes it’s just nice to go all out and have some quality “girl” time.

When we think of girl time, some things that come to mind are getting a pedicure or manicure, having your hair done, getting dressed up for a girl’s night out on the town. Sometimes it’s even spending the evening on the couch in your pajamas watching a romantic comedy with a big bowl of popcorn, or curling up with a good book. But what about playing a game? Hidden Object games, Time Management games, and Adventure games, whatever your preference is.

The theme surrounding many Hidden Object and Adventure games is usually some kind of mystery. Most often they are spooky mystery stories, with haunted mansions or towns that are very dark and grim. Time Management games often involve running a business like a coffee shop, spa, diner, or other establishment in the food industry. Make no mistake; all of these games are exciting and engaging in their own ways. But if you’re in the mood for something a little lighter, more uplifting, or just needing some quality “girly” time, there are a lot of games out there to choose from that are just the kind of thing you may be looking for.

We’ve taken the time to list some of our favorites.
