Some people might be under the wrong impession that a PlayBook is an all work, no game device specially when it comes to kids. Well, you got it wrong. My PlayBook has kept me from locking my niece and nephew in a closet more than once, to the point that when they see me they ask for the PlayBook instead of saying hi.

There are more games than any other kind of app combined on my PlayBook, and I’m not ashamed of it. So, if you have kids or constantly around them and could use a little break now and then, your these games might help you out:

1. Billy’s Hill
