Comments: Always postpone meetings for time-wasting Web games

I'm pretty sure I suck at Babycal: I scored a 40, which I think is the minimum you can score if you play the game with your eyes closed and randomly click your mouse.

There is a learning curve, to be sure. I scored next to nothing the first few games I played, then I was scoring around 500 to 1,000 for a while, then between 5,000 and 10,000. Don't know if I have the patience to get any better than that, though.

My experience was very much like yours. I read on some blog somewhere that this game was terribly addictive. I started playing it and I was like, what are they talking about? Then, next thing I know, I'm hooked. I think "babycal" might mean "junky" in Russian.

10,000! Totally impressed.

I love the sound it makes when you bonk a guy. Sounds like it says, "Oy!" Besides patience, you need good eyesight, which I don't have. I kept futilely clicking on babycals who'd already fired their bags. Maybe I'll try again during the daylight hours. I did manage to score a 410 once, though not because of any well-executed plan of attack. Meanwhile, my cat is mesmerized by it.

Jay Is Games has filled in for Little Fluffy for me. Also this site, whose reviews are less helpful, admittedly.

Orbox is available in English here, by the way.

Looks like Orbox is basically the same as Ricochet Robot.
