GAMING 101

Great Games to Play Offline

No Wi-Fi? No data? No problem.

What happens when you can’t get online? These games, for starters. Perfectly playable when you’re offline, they’re must-haves for road trips, long flights, and those terrifying moments when Wi-Fi conks out.

Rebel Inc.

This satisfyingly complex simulation is similar to developer Ndemic’s viral outbreak hit Plague Inc.—except this time, instead of spreading disease, you’re trying to keep the peace and rebuild a nation in the throes of conflict. With government corruption on the rise and insurgency looming, it’s not going to be easy—but it’s definitely going to be fun.

The country’s in turmoil! Can you balance the needs of the people?

Reigns: Game of Thrones

Heavy lies the crown as you swipe through various scenarios while imagining your favorite GoT characters ruling Westeros. As Queen Sansa, who should be your Hand? As Queen Daenerys, do you fly your dragons north? As King Tyrion, will you practice cruelty or kindness? Choose carefully—a grisly end is just a swipe away.

Hmm...tempting, but perhaps not the most prudent decision.
