    So I go to the gym for lunch every day and hop on an elliptical for 45 minutes. Most of the games I like are actually really hard to play while on there, as my constant motion makes it difficult to do anything too intricate. Like most TD games don't work.

    Currently I find the best games that I own to play while in motion are Strategery (because the land areas are big enough to click easily) and Wordjong (because you can sit the thing up aganist the machine on the magazine rack and just contemplate the words easily).

    Anyone else play games while doing anything like this and have some fun engaging games that are easy to play wile you are in motion?

    Pigs a Pop'n or Mystic Jewels should work.

    Scoops! :D Sorry I just thought it would be funny to see someone attempt to play this on an elliptical.

    Personally I use Pandora 90% of the time and TED the other 10% when on the elliptical.

    Ha, I have an elliptical that I barely use because the TV in that room is broken. I've been thinking of fixes, like setting up my laptop (sound might be too low) or watching a video on my iPod touch (where to put it??). I recently considered trying to play games, but I wasn't sure how that would work out. I might give it a try... I have Strategery already. (I don't like working out to just music. It bores me, unfortunately).

    I am exactly the same...music I have to have, but it is not enough to engage me. I don't like to read while on the machine either. Just hard to find games that are easy to play while on it.

    Today I tried Quordy and that did not work well.

    I go to the gym every other day and have thought about this too. For now I just crank Megadeth or Disturbed or whatever is on my "ass-kickin workout" playlist. That keeps me going!

    But I think Poker Live would be easy enough to play. I dunno I use the machine pretty hard, I couldn't concentrate on much else. Maybe i'll try some experiments today.
