Collect Ten- "The object of this game is to get all the dots into the two frames at the bottom of the page. You can drag individual dots from frame to frame, or drag entire sets. Only sets of 10 can be dragged into the tens column. When all dots are accounted for, you win a check mark, and it's on to the next bunch. This simple activity is strangely addictive. Extra challenge: What's the smallest number of drags you need to finish?" - Collect Ten
