Brian was nice enough to send me an invite for the gaming website The Casual Collective which takes a different stance than all those other arcade sites out there. The Casual Collective is run by game programmers who publish their games exclusively on the website which means that this is the only way that you can officially play the games.
Currently four games are available, three multiplayer games and one single player game. If you are a gamer you probably know the Flash Element Tower Defense game which is the single player game on the website. I have not heard of the other games and find it interesting to see that they are all multiplayer games.
One is a Tower Defense game were two players compete against the creeps which surely sounds fun. The other one is a two player strategy game called Desktop Armada and the last one a strategic game called Buggle.
The site has more than 18000 members already which is not that surprisingly if you consider the quality of the games on the site. If you like flash games this website is a must have.
I have an unlimited number of invites, if you would like one write a comment and I will send it out to you. I do not need any information other than your email address which you can add when filling out a comment.
Update: You no longer need an account to play games on The Casual Collective website. The site features about a dozen games that you can play directly on it. You can play some games laone while others only with a second player.
You do not seem to need an account to play the games, but if you do create an account you can use the forum and benefit from other features that are only available to registered users. Registration seems free after all.
