Wordle took the world by storm in the past few years. A simple word game that gives you six chances to guess a five-letter word. The game shows you what letter you guessed correctly, but not in the particular spelling order. You only get to play once a day, and you want to keep your winning percentage and streak active, so take those chances seriously. The game is very addictive and will give you a morning brain teaser to start your day on the right track.

6. Heardle

Heardle takes a twist off of the popular word game Wordle. Instead of spelling a hidden word, Heardle gives you six guesses to pick the correct song based on the notes of the song. Each guess gives you a few more seconds of the song’s intro to make it easier. You will love this challenging and fun game if you are a music lover.

7. Sporcle

Sporcle is one of my favorite websites for killing some time. They have an extensive library of quizzes that range from subjects like history, pop culture, sports, and geography. Pass the time by testing your trivia and puzzle-solving skills that might lead you down a rabbit hole as you escape your work responsibilities.

8. Know Your Meme

This website will give you all the details of the original poster, the post’s reason, and how it became a viral sensation. The site is basically a meme museum, so if you’re someone who sends memes back and forth to your friends every day, you should dive head-first into this random website.

9. The Oregon Trail

You read that correctly. The classic computer game you most likely played in elementary school is back. Play the classic game where you attempt to lead a team in a covered wagon across the vicious Oregon Trail. Make sure you are ready for the grueling trail by stocking up on supplies. Personally, I just spent 45 minutes of nostalgic playing of the game before my wagon broke and my family died of dysentery.

10. Immaculate Grid

This one is for all of you sports fans out there. The game gives you a 3-by-3 grid with random teams or subjects on the outside. On the inside, you need to match a player that matches the team and subject to the corresponding box. The game is incredibly addictive and frustrating at the same time. There is a new grid each morning, and it also lets you go back and play the archive of past games.

Never judge a book by its cover. You can say the same about movies.

Thankfully, many of these 80s movies still hold up today. I regularly find myself watching these beloved 80s movies more often than modern cinema.
