I love Popcap games..... my buddies and I used to always go to the library in highschool studyhall and play these games. We all got extremely good at the pirate ship one - "Seven Seas":hilarious: Other group favs were Alchemy and Dynomite. I'd have to get those on principal if they came to the PSN.
