That list is woefully missing many great games. The "laser" game, all of the strategy games with moving blocks, etc.

I came in here to see if Desktop Tower Defense was on the list. I've got nothing else to add.

That helicopter game has actually made me want to cry.

And I love Bejeweled and Bowman.

Desktop Tower Defense really lowered my productivity for about 6 months. I finally had to delete my shortcut to keep from going there so often.

So I've been playing this and I really like it... but I am wondering what the rules are for it? How does it determine how many extra dice I get each turn? and how does it determine how to distribute those dice? I haven't been able to find anything.

edit: Nevermind:

"No movement of dice is allowed between territories other than by attacking as noted above. At the conclusion of each turn, the greatest number of adjoining territories you have is calculated, and you are awarded a bonus of that number of dice. They are then automatically and randomly placed throughout all of your territories, up to a maximum of eight (8) dice on a single territory."
