Many people use apps and games on their phone to escape from the drudgery of their normal lives. The following games are all very popular for this purpose, but can also land you in trouble if you are not careful.

1. Truth or Dare

This game is exactly what it sounds like! With truth or dare, you can play by yourself or with a group. The dares range from silly things like break dancing for 30 seconds to splashing a glass of water in a stranger’s face. The questions can be silly or quite personal. There is even an option for you to include your own dares and questions. It is a lot of fun and can help you bond with the people around you. That being said, it is probably not something your boss would approve of you indulging in during business hours. It can also get you in trouble by having you undertake dares that might upset the people close to you as you answer the loaded questions that come your way. The things you enjoy in life do tend to come with a risk, though, so there is a lot of enjoyment potential in this app.

2. Drop 7

If Sudoku and Bejeweled had a baby, it would look something like Drop 7. It includes a 7 by 7 grid with colored balls. Your job is to line the balls up in a specific fashion. It is quiet, so it can be done on the fly, but it also takes a lot of concentration. This means that it isn’t something you can do while still paying attention what is happening around you. That means it could get you in trouble for not being attentive to your coworkers or your significant other if the expect you to be an active participant in the conversation at hand.

3. Vocab Quiz

We included this on our list for all the word game lovers out there. This game quizzes your knowledge of obscure words. It shows you a random word that you are then to match with a synonym from a list of multiple choices. Vocab Quiz can help you grow your vocabulary, which is always a good thing, but it is another game that takes a lot of concentration. It can also be quite addictive meaning you can end up in trouble for spending far more time with it than you planned.

4. Subway Surfer

It is funny how a game meant mostly for kids has become so popular among adults. It is a fun game where you guide a skateboarder through the dangers of a subway tunnel. The colors are bright, and this is a noisy game. This means that is is quite obvious when you are playing it instead of attending to your duties. This is also a game with in-app purchases, making some people get in trouble for mindlessly spending money on supplies and avatar items.

Hopefully your use of these popular games will only bring you enjoyment and not land you in trouble with the important people in your life. Make sure that you care careful about where and when you take your escape in one of these fun games.
