What a Wonderful Wonderputt World

Welcome to another edition of Geek-Offs, where you'll find the perfect distractions to help you muddle your way through hump day each week.

We like pretty things 'round here. We like sparkly jewels and rainbows and shiny rocket ships and cow-abducting UFOs. Wait, what?

Yes, you heard us right. We've managed to find a game chock full of the aforementioned treats, and it's one that anyone with a computer mouse can play.

This week's Geek-Off, Wonderputt, eschews difficulty in favor of eye candy, and for that we're thankful. Stroke your way through the point and click mini golf game as holes magically change and build on themselves. Collect wonder (the sparkly jewels we oh-so-love), gain achievements, and watch cows, frogs, submarines and trucks cart you from one hole to the next.

Wonderputt is the perfect distraction -- you can finish a full 18 holes in just a couple sensory warming minutes. And worry not, half of the Wonderputt fun is in repeat plays.

Check out the super-happy trailer if you don't believe us:
