More About Classic Games

Looking for a pen and paper game, a board game, or a digital arcade classic? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you're in the mood for Checkers, Chess, Snake, or Asteroids, this collection of free, fun classic games will take you back to the good old days.

Some of you may be asking a very basic question – why even play these games? They don’t have great graphics and the concepts are fairly simple. However, these games have lasted for decades for a reason – they’re just super fun to play! Classic games have a certain kind of charm about them that is hard to replicate. In a world where most games try so hard to look polished and perfect, playing a game with a simple concept that you can learn in a few minutes is such a nice switch-up. Along with this, the art style of many of these classic games is unique and cool in its own way. Sure, something like Snake may not be an awesome 3-D game with tons of different skins and effects, but it doesn’t need those. It’s a simple game that you can learn in 30 seconds, and play for hours.

With that being said, just because games may look simple does not mean that they are always easy. Take Retro Space Blaster for example. While the concept of simply blasting down asteroids to save the galaxy is simple, executing this properly is actually pretty difficult. Players must traverse through the map while avoiding asteroids from every direction, while also having aliens and various other beings headed straight toward them. With all of these variables going on, Retro Space Blaster provides a real challenge to the players. Other classic games are not so easy either, including games like Chess, Minesweeper, and Mahjong. All of them provide challenges but end up being tons of fun to play once you take the time to learn them. For some explanations and rules on these games, go to our Coolmath Games Blogs to learn more about them.

No matter what game you click here, we’re sure that you will have a great time. After all, they are classic games for a reason. No matter how old they get, people come back to them for the entertainment value that they provide.
