I've been driven insane recently by a friend playing a game that is usually known as the scissors game or open/closed but recently, thanks to modern technology has been rebranded to play with a mobile phone (at least the version I have encountered). It involves passing a moblie that is either open or closed and the person passing says "open" or "closed". The person (or people) that knows how to play says whether they are correct or not, and the aim of the game is to work out how the game is played. I can say that it has annoyed me immensely so far, and I still haven't worked it out.
On another note, a thoroughly enjoyable game by the name of Acrophobia has returned. In it, you are given an acronym (such as BRDNT) and you have to come up with what it stands for (e.g. Bring Real Drink Next Time). It can be found at Uproar and is thoroughly enjoyable. I used to play it a long time ago, but they stopped it. For whatever reason, they have decided to bring it back, and I can't say I'm complaining about it!
