Well, all of us participate in a lot of frivolous activities in our day to day lives. We listen to music, open facebook/Instagram/WhatsApp a thousand times and never get bored of things in which we don’t have to utilise our minds.
The FRIV portal gives you something different. It provides you with a simple grid-like user interface to choose the games. All you need is a laptop, internet connection and flash player to start playing games.
So, the next time you get bored, you know where to look!

How to start playing games?
You can go to the website – friv.com or friv.info and hover over the screen to find the names of the games.
There’s a large variety of games in the categories of racing, arcade, shooting, love-test, etc.
You need to click on the game and allow the website to run flash player if you’ve not enabled it.
For example, I clicked on the game called ‘Rich Cars’.
Once you’re into the game, you’ll see a simple screen as shown below:
After you click on the ‘Play’ button, you’ll see a small story involved in the games you’re playing. When you play the same game again, you will be able to select various levels of the games which you’ve unlocked!
Now, you can click forward and take a look at the simple instructions of the game you’re playing.
You now know the keys to use while playing the game. Now what?
Enjoy the free games!
You can see the result of the game after finishing. Well, I couldn’t perform well. But I’m sure I will as I have my mind hooked to this website.
