Kurnik online

For those of us suffering mild overdoses of high resolution graphics and jaw dropping eyecandy, a respite from the onslaught. Kurnik (aka PlayOK) is a free to play online games website featuring classic board and card games.

Tired of facing the screaming hoards on Playstation Network or Xboxlive, then settle down to a friendly game of checkers, ludo, mahjong, perhaps even a racy hand of gin rummy, against a (hopefully) live opponent. Feel like running in the face of copyright infringements, then try Kurnik's version of Scrabble (Literaxx,Literaki)and Monopoly (Blogpoly,Netopol).

Originally a Poish only website, founded in 2001 by Marek Futrega, Furnik now supports over 30 classic games, is available in 34 languages including Japanese, Chinese and Greek and has a current ranking at 10,085th on Alexa. A simple sign up process lies between you and an evening of relaxation.

An amazing discovery dear friend.

Racy you say?

The Elderly said...

(blush's..) well I did spend alot of time next to your graybox...

gnome said...

I see. It's comparatively racy then. Phew.

The Elderly said...

Indeed! amazing the fun you can have with a simple deck of cards... gin rummy a little like strip poker but without the disrobing....

...jeech I am getting old...:(

gnome said...

Yes, and it's rather cold for this time of year too. How's the back?

The Elderly said...

the back is much better thank you my friend :) choice of operation or swiming, so I chose swimming, looked easy.... and I only had to be rescued once!

(shuffles cards...)

gnome said...

Right, that's reassuring I suppose.

The Elderly said...

(deal cards....)

..well yes, though I suspect my choice of a large yellow duck as a floatation device is an error in judgement.. :(

gnome said...

Aha. Yes, hmm. Judgement. Yes, one can err.

(....)

Frankly, how many 5s are there in this deck?

The Elderly said...

..why 5 of course, 2 twos, 3 threes.. etc. it's a standard blogger deck...! ?

? wot don't tell me you have all the 5's

(throws down dealt hand...) :(

(heads to kitchen mumbling under his breath...)

..with some heavy duty sleeping tablets...
