Distract Workplace Distractions
You may have thought this is an article about combating workplace distraction and boosting productivity? It is, but with a twist!
Our office has a couple of extra ‘interns’ this fall, and while they need our attention, so do you! It turns out there is a real need to keep family members, visitors, and distance learners (when they’re on their breaks) busy while you need to make that important phone call or virtual meeting! Everyone get’s distracted at work – we all know this. Now you have a way to keep the ‘distractors’ distracted!
Visual Moxie understands this conundrum which is why we’re curating a growing list of online games that you, or someone you need to keep busy, can fiddle with when you feel you need a recharge!
Archery World Tour
Archery world tour is easy to play and hard to master!
Use your mouse to aim and fire your bow. Hold your left mouse button to draw, and release to fire. The cross-hairs will slowly follow your cursor as you move your mouse. In most levels, you’ll need to pay attention to the wind speed and direction if you want to hit the bullseye.
Cannon Basketball 4
Go after the stars first!
Use your mouse to aim and shoot the cannon. Move your mouse further from the cannon to make a more powerful shot. Use the guide to get a ball into the net with as few attempts as possible!

This game way harder than it seems!

Play strategically if you want to survive!
This game is really cool, but it’s really hard if you don’t know what you’re doing! Make sure you play through the tutorial so you know how to play. Your goal is to grow your civilization, keep it safe, and build a world wonder. If you don’t know what to do, try starting a new game on the easiest difficulty. It’s still not that easy!
