We here are all about staying productive, but sometimes you just need to take a break . For those times, there’s this old-but-fun tip: with a few terminal commands, you can open up games like 5×5, Pong, Solitaire, Snake, Tetris, and others in your Mac’s terminal.
To start them up, just open your Terminal app (in /Applications/Utilities) and type emacs into the prompt. Press Enter to open it up, press Esc then x .
Next, just type the name of the game you want to play and enjoy (note that different versions of OS X have different games, so see what you have first !). The games are simple and the graphics are not great but it is a perfect way to power down and relax without getting so engrossed in a game that you end up spending hours on it.
