Instead of doing actually work, we tend to surf the web, chat with other co-workers or hop on Facebook to play our favorite games. For those of you who are bored with your current game selection, take a look at the list that I personally compiled below.

Instead of doing actually work, we tend to surf the web, chat with other co-workers or hop on Facebook to play our favorite games. For those of you who are bored with your current game selection, take a look at the list that I personally compiled below:

1. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

We all want to be millionaires, but do we all have what it takes? How does your trivial knowledge compare to the rest of Facebook users?

Yes, the famous game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is on Facebook to give viewers the chance to get in on some of the action. Play along with fellow fans and friends in a social atmosphere to collect money along the way.

2. Jersey Shore

If you live by GTL, the Jersey Shore Game on Facebook may make you feel one step closer to the gang.

Choose the Jersey Shore body type that fits your character and hit up the club to show yourself off to others, but you might want to try to avoid the grenades.

3. Boss Vegas

Every casino game usually has the same typical actions: bet, bet and bet. However, playing casino games is one thing, but managing a casino is another.

Boss Vegas simulates what it would be like to manage a casino. Give managing a casino a shot to see if you’re able to hang around with the big guys.

4. Crime City

Crime City, the Facebook game that reminds gamers of Grand Theft Auto, will definitely get you through your workday (if you can hide the game from your employer of course).

See how far you can move up the ranks in a world that forces criminals to take matters into their own hands. Missions include simple crimes like mugging, but escalate into crimes that will can land you in the slammer for at least 25 years.

5. Happy Kingdom

Okay, so maybe a game like Crime City is a little too violent for you. With over 660,000 monthly active users, Happy Kingdom keeps its users happy (sorry for the pun).

Happy Kingdom sets the gamer in the Middle Ages for a city building adventure. Explore the time period with other users to construct and build a kingdom with power.

6. Galactic Trader

Since I’m not into futuristic games, I’m not a big fan of this one, but I am sure a lot of you may find the game engaging. Galactic Trader is a must play for any gamer who is a space buff.

Mine planets for minerals, buy and sell materials and partake in spaceship warfare to expand your fleet in the galaxy.

7. Pawn Stars: The Game

You’ve most likely seen the show Pawn Stars on The History Channel a few times while you were flipping through the channels. At times, the crew would find some rare and exciting items to purchase. Ever wonder what it would be like to be one of them?

Pawn Stars: The Game gives you the opportunity to purchase items at your will and collect items for your shop. See how well your negotiating skills fair.

8. Mystery Manor

Mystery Manor, a hidden object game, allows you to explore a mysterious house to complete tasks for characters within the game.

Be prepared for a mansion filled with mythical creatures and characters.

9. Gardens of Time

Gardens of Time, another hidden object game, appoints the user as the latest new recruit for a group named Time Society. Time Society, an organization that travels through time, provides you with the means to get to certain time periods throughout history.

Obtain artifacts and currency by solving puzzles put forth for you to solve. A friend of yours can’t find an object? Give your friend a hint and help him or her out!

10. Twilight Wars

Twilight Wars, a competitive multiplayer deathmatch game, focuses on gamers who are up for a fast-paced game.

Twilight Wars appeals to teenage gamers with its magna characters and storyline. Select the camp of your choice and win the battles out on the field.
