Games and Random Answered

Last night we added a new "Games" category, and brought back (and made better!) the random sorting.

When we first added categories, the theory was to add new categories as they emerged. I'd say that games has pretty clearly emerged. There are great Instructables focused on video games, video game cabinets, homemade game consules, board games, card games, magic tricks, dice games, how to cheat at games, and lots of other ways to have fun. Explore the games category, and have fun. If you come across an Instructable that should be included in games, but we missed adding to the category, leave a note here.

A great way to see if there are any we missed adding to games, or just to explore the site in general, is the revived sort by random. It's new every time you click it in the Explore pull-down menu, or click "Spin the Bottle" on the explore pages. I bet you'll find something cool you've never seen before.

As always, let us know what you think.

At first I was excited: something cool you've never seen before.
Then I did it, and saw things I saw before :P
You guys probably don't track if I've viewed things or not... or maybe you do?

Cool updates :-)

(Oh, also...) Theres finnally a set of 2 categories without any instructables! Games+Ride Food+Ride only had 2 ibles, and that was the least -- now there is an empty set, someone go fill it!

Bike jousting would look cooler. Or something wheelchair-based.

Maybe you could just put up How to Play Polo.

Somebody is going to have to build a rollercoaster, aren't you, Z?

No, we don't track. You're just rolling the dice.

Oh cool. :-)
You guys need to add a "green" category. I think there are enough instructables that are "green" to warrant a category. I know I would use it. I have some green instructables in the works, actually.
