One universal about homework: it taught us all how to procrastinate. The fellow who wrote the original computer Solitaire for Microsoft was once quoted as saying wryly that he had “single-handedly hurt America’s international competitiveness.” Stretch your multicultural procrastination muscles with Shanghai, also known asÂ MahJong Solitaire. The classic game usesÂ MahJong tiles, but you can also find it with automobiles, Christmas icons, and so on. The goal is to match two identical tiles (that are on top or edge of pyramid) ’til you get to the bottom. You can play a simple one online free atÂ MahJongedÂ (click on Play Now, then Continue — no need to download). We know some nonprofit folks who could have written fifty grant proposals in the time they’ve spent playing this game!
