quicklist: 1title: Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Gamestext: Sure the title is a bit morbid for such a joyous holiday, but this game is an incredibly fun way to pass the time.
Based on a viral public service announcement from Metro Trains in Melbourne, Australia, the goal is to save a cast of characters from dangerous situations while racking up points.
The latest version of the game includes new levels, such as electric fence hurdles, a dolphin rodeo and a javelin catch.
The first version of the game is also available for Android devices.
quicklist: 2title: NinJump Dashtext: The best part of NinJump dash is that you'll compete against three other opponents in real time who can be your Facebook friends or random challengers from around the world.

quicklist: 3title: Draw Somethingtext: Channel your inner artist with Draw Something, a social drawing game that allows users to draw pictures and have their friends guess what they are.
With more than 3,000 words to draw from in the free version of the game, you'll have plenty of opportunities to create some masterpieces (which will almost certainly elicit a few laughs, too.)
quicklist: 4title: Tetris Blitztext: The old-school game has gotten a mobile makeover.
Go head to head with other opponents in Tetris Blitz as you race a clock to clear lines in the classic game.
Best of all: You'll always be able to find worthy opponents to battle with the game's skill-matching system.
