    Im quite curious if anyone has mastered the art of gaming whilst in work and how they accomplish this?????

    (If you are self-employed or work for a gaming company, that does NOT count)

    Im tempted to try and get my Vita into work but i think ill have a hard time passing it off as "my new phone" if i get caught........

    Any tipsters out there???, anyone managed to achieve the art of gaming whilst getting paid to do something else????

    does playing Hattrick count?

    otherwise, very easy for me, but I work from home 95% of the time.

    Take Vita to the bog, play for 10 minutes. Return to desk.

    I guess if you have some sort of play per email game you can do that as well.

    Depends a bit on your job, really. ;) Some tips work better for some jobs than others.

    I sometimes play the odd flash game or a bit of poker and solitaire on my desktop. Nothing that makes too much clicking noises or requires lots of concentration.

    I've played LOTRO and WoW over the wireless lan that we have at work. Had to do it when most people were gone, with no sound and a darkened screen. Also had to make sure I wasnt in any "dangerous" areas in case I needed to turn it off.

    Aside from that, years ago when I was on PC support, we scaveneged all the best bits out of all the computers we were supporting in order to make a 4 PC Lan for ourselves to play Doom all day. We had a seperate IT office and all played it so that was easier.

    These days, its games on my phone and now and then standalone games on my personal laptop in the rest room. Mostly I dont bother with the laptop though.

    I've played flash games in the past.

    Reminds me, I'm supposed to be turnign over a new leaf and cracking on at work... bugger :(

    I don't play games at work as we're an open plan office and i've enough to be getting on with as it is. I do purchase & download games at work though. That nice phat pipe is great for taking minutes to download something that would take hours at home on my shitty VM broadband.

    I then just zip stuff up to usb pen and take it home.

    Amnyway, my PCs are all workstations with great processors and memory but utterly, utterly, gash gfx cards.
