toilet games Marvel Snap: three heroes in comic style surrounded by flaming wings

Marvel Snap

Ben Brode created Marvel Snap as a toilet game. No, come back, hear me out. He recalls in an interview with The Washington Post that a friend’s legs had fallen asleep as he played Hearthstone on the toilet, and when he stood up, he fell and broke his leg. This led to him creating Marvel Snap, where each game is significantly shorter – allowing people to safely play without the prospect of broken limbs.

Anyway, Marvel Snap is an incredibly popular card battler on iOS and Android, where you can build decks of your favorite Marvel heroes to smite the competition. Check out our picks of the best Marvel Snap decks and what this month’s Marvel Snap season pass holds.

toilet games Merge Mansion: grandma and Maddie looking at each other

Merge Mansion

Join Maddie and Ursula as you work through a dilapidated mansion, merging items and fixing it up as you go. You merge a wide range of items together to fill requirements and that’s all there is to it – but the simplicity is what makes it addictive. Plus, you run out of stamina in about five minutes, so it’s a perfect opportunity to play on the porcelain throne.

Sometimes you can get bogged down in granny’s garage – here’s how to make the pesky Merge Mansion mosaic and some Merge Mansion cheats to implement.

toilet games Pokémon Go: six pokemon going head to head in a battle

Pokémon Go

If you find yourself out in public, why not open up Pokémon Go and survey the nearby Pokéstops? You never know what you can find lurking in your local area, and it provides an excellent option for entertainment.

You could try to perform a Pokemon Go Eevee evolution, if you want, and use the best Pokémon Go maps to navigate, then work towards all the Pokémon Go level requirements.

toilet games Honkai Star Rail: Blade standing with his sword in an empty town

Honkai Star Rail

Requiring less handiwork than its open-world counterpart Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail is a blessing for us on the bog. You can set your team to do auto battle and each fight you choose only lasts a few minutes, then you’re back to running around different planets.

Check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list to see who you should focus on while you’re here. Or, check out the latest Honkai Star Rail codes and Honkai Star Rail update.

toilet games Stardew valley: a bustling farm filled with animals and plants

Stardew Valley

Perhaps you’re in it for the long haul – I see all you gastrointestinally challenged gamers – and Stardew Valley can fill your time perfectly here. Open it up, play a day or two while planting parsnips and petting chickens – and then go about your business elsewhere.

Here’s our recent, reflective Stardew Valley review for your perusal, along with a guide to every Stardew Valley fish and how to play Stardew Valley co-op.

toilet games Duolingo: Duo the own standing in a room filled with furniture

Duolingo

Duolingo isn’t strictly a game, but it can be played as one if you try and speedrun it. Why not spend this precious time expanding your abilities and learning a new language? Just maybe avoid the speaking exercises.

If you like educational games, then grab some more off our list, or try these geography games too so you can pick a new country’s language to learn with Duo.

Gubbins

Gubbins is a moreish little slice of a puzzle game. It’s got zany graphics reminiscent of the Yellow Submarine’s video, and endless word possibilities to make.

There’s no time limit – you can take as long or as little as you want to make words from the available letters, but there are those pesky Gubbins getting in the way. Some can help, and some can hinder, but they’re there nonetheless. Gubbins has two free games available each day but is definitely worth the $5 for the full version. And there are no ads at all!
