One of the local DJs featured this game yesterday on her "ways to waste time at work" segment, and it's simultaneously awesome and maddening, so I thought I'd share:

Funny Farm

Basically, it's a word association / mind map game -- you start with the phrase "on the farm" and need to brainstorm words that you associate with that, and if they're one of the options on the map, it shows them. Then, once you get those words, you brainstorm words you associate with them, and so on, expanding the map.

There is an endgame to the puzzle, but I'm nowhere near reaching it — it has to do with reaching the four corners of the map, which I'm having a hard time getting to. (Surprisingly, one of the sections that's giving me the most trouble? "comic books")

If you're looking for a way to kill time, this is a mind-building way to do it!

I just added "Mickey Mouse" off "Disney," which led to "Donald" and "Disneyland" ...

I have a feeling there may be more in cartoons, perhaps including something that connects to the square to the right.

I've gotten a few more in the Drugs section and one in the section below, but I've hit a mental block elsewhere. I'm spending way too much time on this...
