    2048 is a simple but addictive game where you must join the numbers with the objective of reaching the 2048 tile without getting out of the game. It's a strategy game in which the player needs to add the number to get to the goal.

    "This is a simple yet addicting game where you try to combine like-numbers together. You can actually play beyond the 2048 tiles, but it's called 2048 because it's already pretty challenging to get to that tile in the first place. It also is pretty self-sustaining, so if you're on an electronic device that's away from WiFi or cell phone service, you won't have any problems. I always like to try to beat the last highest number of tiles that I merged to."

    9GAG is a social media website where users upload their "user-generated content" with the purpose of humor and entertaining. Aside from the website, it also has an app platform for iOs and Android devices that can be downloaded for free.

    "If someone is looking to waste time, they can certainly accomplish that on 9gag, especially if they have an affinity for internet memes. The site contains an extensive collection of pictures, videos and gifs that are meant to entertain. However, the layout feels very antiquated and can be unpleasant to navigate. There also isn't much beyond user-generated visual content. There's a facebook style comment section, but it's not particularly enjoyable to use or conducive to any real conversation. I'd recommend reddit instead, which fulfills a similar niche but has a much broader scope and a vastly more user-friendly layout."

    "Very addictive game that has always made me kill my time whenever i am bored to death. Unlike many of the game of this kind this doesn't get boring and it isn't pay to win type of game. Indeed this is a game you must play if u have nothing to do. My only complaint is that u cant play it w/o an internet. "

    "I am more of a video game type of person when it comes to wasting time. I have however used Imgur and it can be a good way to pass time. I have used it while waiting at the airport for my flights and have got some good laughs creating some GIFs."

    "I enjoy farming games and am always on the look out for something new. I've used this game before and found it to be quite entertaining. It's not complex at all, in fact, it's quite user friendly. The graphics are pretty good for a mobile app as well. The game has certainly kept me occupied for a few hours at a time. I've used it for commuting purposes; while waiting for a train or in an office awaiting an appointment. "
