Games on the Throne

From Ned Stark to Joffrey Lannister, the one thing we all have in common is the understanding that toilet time, for anyone, is a sacred time. It’s where you relieve yourself of previous meals, take time to reflect on years gone by, but most importantly it’s where you can just be yourself. No one can take that away from you (provided you keep the door locked, or have The Hound standing guard).

However, of all the activities one fulfils over a single day, toilet-time is probably when you’re the most vulnerable. Sitting there all alone. So I thought I’d give the power back to you, to take charge of your own ‘me-time’, and enjoy every second of your deuce-dropping, putty-pushing, daily deffy. How? By maximising that time playing some amazing games on your phone. In this case, your iPhone. Sorry Android users, I’m just not there yet.

So why Games on the Throne (and not Facebook)? Well, because games get your mind going. They get you thinking. But mostly, if I have to see another silly meme of Donald Trump I’m going to lose my shit. Again.

The below list (mentioned in no particular order) was curated by myself and a number of other like-minded mud-pumpers, especially for you. It includes iOS games that have short, fast-to-finish levels (unlike the ridiculously drawn-out seasons of GoT), as well as games that can be paused and resumed during your next evac.

It’s a short list of the fav’s, to start. If you have any of your own to share, pop them in the comments.

    I like RushHour while I drop the kids off at the pool. 🙂

    I personally think toilet time should be gadget free for a variety of reasons including hygiene but also just because us modern day humans seldom disconnect and truly spend time alone with our own thoughts.
