So like most people, I like having a few brain teaser games on my phone to while away the time while waiting in line at the checkout or at the doctor's office or trying to fall asleep. But something has always bugged me. All of these free games are full of ads. But the ads are for other free games. And those free games are supported by... ads for other free games. So where does the money come from? Are mobile game companies just circulating the same advertising budget around and around? I mean, I can't believe a whole lot of people would pay $5 for a crossword puzzle or Dr. Mario clone when the other option is just watch a quick ad between rounds.

Anyway, take the Quiz and come back and tell us how you did and your theory on mobile game economics.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues on the Quiz.

I got 9 of 11 right and a score of 822 on the Hard version, not too bad for this old fart.

Mobile game economics: meant to take money from unsuspecting or gullible rubes.

Note to self: Don't let the Ms. know when I am about to do an online quiz. She is most certainly not in it to win it.

Been a while since I got a 9/10 on the easy quiz. I had actually seen all the articles except the video game one, which I missed.

Samsies. A first in a long while for me. Usually it's 7 out of 11 at best. Apparently I retain very little info any given week.

Aced the easy one again, guess that's why it's easy.

Haven't played any mobile games in a few months, any interesting new puzzle or brain stimulating ones out there you'd recommend?

I play this one if I want to sleep. The harder levels exhausts my brain.

Thanks, I'll check it out tonight.

Last one I played was Word Mocha, in competition with my family, but got bored when they stopped playing.

9 out of 10 right on Easy Quiz but not in Top 10.  Gotta play the game earlier to be in Top 10 with 9 out of 10 right.
