Those of you who do not know about Giveaway of the Day really ought to go check it out over at
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com. The folks there give away a different licensed pay software program for free daily. I have the site bookmarked so I never miss out on a chance to get something of value that I might actually want for free-- and legal. Past giveaways have included back-up and watermarking programs, algebraic calculators and html validators, toolkits for the aspiring geek and D.V.D. rippers; and more. Each giveaway lasts for 24 hours.
Several days ago I downloaded the game Ingenious from Merscoms Ltd. Ingenious is a board of pentagons upon which one of each of five colors [red, blue, orange, yellow, green] are placed. The player starts by placing one double helix-pentagon on one of the singular colors. The computer [or other player] does the same. Turns go back and forth. When one color of the five are completed on a chart in the left-hand corner, the "ingenious" button lights up and the player gets another turn. When there are no more moves left, the game is over and the screen announces the winner.
My love of shapes and colors keeps me coming back for more Ingenious [as well as for more of Snood, my all-time favorite which also has shapes and colors]. I am not sure I would have plucked down $19.95 but I was more than happy to be able to download Ingenious for free. At the Giveawayoftheday site, Ingenious is running with a 97% approval rating.
It's too late to get Ingenious for free. There are plenty of other programs to be had-- full-featured licensed programs-- at the rate of one a day. I urge you all to check out the Giveaway of the day site daily. There is a high probability of worthwhile snagging to be had there for all.
