h2g2 Game Addicts Support Group

23 Conversations

H2G2 has lots of lovely word games and other fun threads; they take no serious thought to play, they tend to be very busy, and, unfortunately, highly addicive. Before long you find yourself at the top of the stats page, and wonder what you are doing with your life. You just can't leave them. You keep posting untill you can barely keep your eyes open, you find yourself hampered with backlog. You are not alone.

The Offending Threads

The following threads are the biggest offenders in keeping researchers away from what they should be doing... If you would like to suggest another thread, then do so.
