I'm looking for some different types of games, I'd really appreciate it if people could help! I'm relatively new and not very familiar with these kinds of sims.

- Escape rooms, puzzles, and similar! I love these kinds of games and I'd like to try them in SL. If there's some kind of directory or blog about them, that would be awesome.

- What kinds of simulators are out there? I've seen fishing and GTFO, what else?

- Any games where you can make L without just standing around or dealing with super broken systems? Maybe something like trivia?

Thank you! :)

I don't know of any myself but you can always check out the Events page and use the games/contests filter

Since the question was a bit general, I'll reply with a fairly general and perhaps not to your specific question answer.

There are a good few SL-specific (or at least I had never heard of them outside SL) tabletop games like 'Greedy Greedy' and 'hand and foot' . Off the top of my head, 'Pirandello Bay' and 'A Meeting Place' both have a pretty decent collection, although both are adult sims. (Pirandello Bay also has a rather fun maze.)

There are also 'skill gaming' regions which from the little I've seen of them are basically casinos but where the games require enough 'skill' to get around certain gambling laws.

I've heard about 'hunt' type games where people go around trying to look for hidden objects based on somewhat cryptic clues, but I don't know much about them. I think a lot of them are seasonal, and reward participants with seasonally appropriate group gifts.

I remember someone asking in Builder's Brewery (a builder and scripter's group) about things for scripting an escape room, so you're not the first person with the idea, although I don't know if anything like that actually exists or has much popularity yet.

Edit: Oh yeah, for-linden trivia is a thing. I think NCI sometimes hosts trivia nights. You can also find 'sploders' in several clubs which take in people's lindens and randomly redistribute them. I wouldn't really call sploders a 'game' though. . .

LL have some games you have to do some quests. I never tried it (SIM overcrowded) from what I understand it is objective based game you collect things.. you make L$.

LL's description: Complete quests, find adventure and earn virtual currency in Linden Realms, a new game inside Second Life! Can you collect all the crystals?

RunawayBunny, Thanks, but I know about these! My experience is similar to yours, it's usually pretty overcrowded and doesn't work that well for me. :(

Quistessa, I didn't mean to be vague, sorry! I'm not really into skill games and I've done some hunts before but I'll need to look into the rest. I've seen ads for escape rooms but I think they might be seasonal since there don't seem to be many at any given time. I've never heard of sploders, either.

Rowan Amore, yeah, I know about them! I visited Cica's new one the other day. I was thinking more along the lines of more gamier games :P

Feels like there's great potential for this in SL! I hope someone builds it.

For me I would say card/dice games are fun in SL. And also trivia/quiz nights. There's different trivia/quiz nights at different sims throughout the week, so check out events.

Paleoquest the first quest is pretty easy gather eggs. 

A  of quest you can  in Paleo Quest to makes some L.

Horizons you can also make some L in the syfi theme quests.

Linden realms you can do once a week quest gather gems for some L.

All these are in portal park you find on destination. 

Look up some Tutorial on you tube if you need help but good to watch the ones they give you in the entrance and read the note cards.
