Back when I was in middle and high school, game websites were pretty popular, especially if you had time to waste at school. That was back before school firewalls blocked any and everything, obviously. But I can remember going to what was essentially an arcade of online games during my third period class or if I spent lunch in the library.

Online gaming has changed a lot since then, and if I'm being honest, I have not kept up with those changes. I prefer my video games on a console and my computer games more traditional.

That's why I was excited to find It's got all my favorite computer card games, and it's so easy to use.

The site opens on a traditional solitaire game. It automatically deals your hand and is set to a draw 3, which adds a bit of difficulty to the game I wasn't expecting right off the bat. You can change it to draw 1 if you'd like. The game is timed, but doesn't start until you make your first move. The site keeps up with your score and stats, which can be viewed at any time. The site states you can play even when off-line, but I haven't tested that.

There are seven different Solitaire games to choose from: Classic, Klondike, Spider, Freecell, Pyramid, Tripeaks, and Golf.

There are a variety of other games to choose, we well, from including Match 3, Word games, and Logic Puzzles like Chess, Minesweeper, and Tetris Blocks. There's even a section for traditional card games like Black Jack, Crazy Eights, and Hearts.

Mahjong is probably my favorite card game ever. I have different versions downloaded on my phone and tablet, but I rarely play on my desktop. There are seven game options to choose from. I chose the China version. There are about two dozen board layouts to choose from in that variation.

The colors are very vibrant, which took a little getting used to for me (I'm used to more of a traditional wood look). The game has music, but I always turn that off no matter what I'm playing. You can also mute the game play sounds and change the background picture. All of that is found in the control menu on the right-hand side of the screen. Like the solitaire game on the homepage, this game was also timed but didn't start until I made the first move.

I liked that if I clicked off the site, it would pause the timer on the game, even if I don't really keep up with my stats. There was also an unlimited amount of undo moves and hints.

My daughter's favorite category is the Hidden Object games. There are eight versions to choose from.

Alexis played Garden Secrets. There are ten levels to play. They're timed, three minutes each. If you fail to find all the objects, you can try again. I liked that if you do retry it, you don't necessarily get all the same objects to find, even though the objects themselves did not change location.

I thought the graphics on this one were really nice. The music wasn't annoying, and it was easy for her to navigate the game play on her own. It was challenging without being too hard. For reference, she's 7. As with the other games, this keeps up with your progress, so if you exit the site, you can pick back up where you left off on your next visit.

Our verdict? is a win!
