Fun Free Time Management Games

By Hannelore Davis

Time management games test your reflexes and memory as you try to accomplish specific tasks in a limited amount of time. Bonuses for going faster and chains for doing the same tasks in a row make these types of game progressively more challenging. From being a sushi chef to a fashion designer, there's a time management game for everyone.

Diner Dash

"Diner Dash" was released in December of 2003, and was one of the first games in the time management genre.

Flo waits on tables, and serves food to a multitude of different customers. A version of the game with no save option and limited levels is available to play for free on the Internet.

Youda Sushi Chef
