People using tablets will tell you that one great way to use them is to play games of all sorts. From card games such as solitaire to graphically entertaining new classics like Contre Jour and Where's My Perry?, having access to games helps you while away a quiet evening at home or keep yourself from getting bored in boring settings, such as the security line at the airport or the dentist's waiting room.

With Kindle Fire HDX, you get an accelerometer, gyroscope, and Adreno 330 GPU, technobabble for features that let your games live large. Think tilting your HDX to move around the streets of Tokyo in a race car or shaking up your onscreen world in a battle between titans. Trust me, it's cool.
