Taking a nap will probably get you detention, or will see you sent off to the headmasters’ office. Yet, no one can blame you for concentration or enthusiasm on your face while you are actually just raiding a country, are conquering a kingdom, are fighting a battle from hell, or are building your own construction. Here’s a list of some fab games that can make those boring classes an adventure playground for you. These are also great to play when school is not getting in the way. You get the drift?
