Santa’s Secret Valley
Santa’s Secret Valley
In a past millennium, this Christmas-themed graphical adventure game was available only for Windows computers. Now SSV has been fully recoded for a new generation to run in web browsers.
In the game, you take the role of Fizbin the elf as you go on a mission to the Secret Valley. There you must locate and retrieve three magic items belonging to Santa — items that were mysteriously stolen from right under your nose as you slept. It’s not as dangerous as it sounds, but you will run into a surprising number of puzzles. We recommend trimming the fingernails before play to prevent scalp damage.
If you enjoy classic 2-D graphical adventures, we suggest you give this version of SSV a try. We also maintain a page of helpful information about operating SSV on mobile devices.

Valvo is a 2-player strategy game that takes just a few moments to learn.
Like backgammon, Valvo is a game of skill in which the set of available moves on each turn is determined by chance. Valvo is much simpler even than backgammon, however, and you will be playing in no time. Use Valvo to get your mind off work for a few minutes, or settle down with it for a real mental work-out at a tougher AI setting. At any level, Valvo is a relaxing pastime with no built-in time pressures.
If you enjoy this game, you probably also enjoy strategy games like chess or logic puzzles like sudoku.
Here’s a great way to sharpen up or show off your vocabulary and verbal skills! Crypto Hangperson brings a cryptic twist, inspired by British cryptic crossword puzzles, to the classic word game of Hangman.
Our local hangperson has over 200 words to taunt you with, and for each one he or she provides a clue that is almost sure not to take you straight to the solution. You will need to solve the riddle of the clue — or be lucky — to avoid the noose. Knowing a lot of words, and how to spell them, may also be of help. Guessing 8 incorrect letters in a round is a capital offence, and you will be hanged every time you do it.
If you enjoy this game, you are probably a word gamer with a yen for a challenge.
