Everyone does it, but no one talks about it. No, we're not talking about picking your nose when you're driving, we're talking about playing games during private time in the bathroom. It used to be magazines and books, then Tetris on the original Game Boy became our toilet entertainment for years. Now with the explosion of apps in the App Store, what are the best games to play on your smartphone or tablet? We flush down the bad ones and let these 10 Best Bathroom Break Games float to the top of our list.
Since you've got a few minutes to kill, might as well see if you can spell a seven letter word, get that 50 point bonus and show your opponent who the spelling champ boss is. Words With Friends is a great toilet time killer. Bonus points if you actually spell the word 'toilet' while on one.
Cut the cheese as you Cut the Rope with this fun and enjoyable physics puzzle game. You'll be telling yourself, "Just one more level." over and over again before you realize your elbows made your legs fall asleep and now you can't stand up. Ah, who cares. Sit there for another 30 minutes and play some more.
Sitting down taking care of business doesn't have to be a boring process, not when you've got a game like Jetpack Joyride to keep you occupied. Every game is different, with tons of content, bonus unlockables and the greedy need to collect coins and see how far you can get in the game.

Sick and tired of your Facebook friends embarrassing you in Bejeweled Blitz?

Bejeweled Blitz games last only a minute, so get ready to play around 5-50 games depending on how bad your mother-in-law's cooking was.
The Pinball Arcade
Why not fire up a good old game of pinball while plunging something else in the bathroom? Pinball Arcade has plenty of tables to choose from, with new tables being added each and every month, so you'll never get bored while you're taking care of business. Have to warn you though, it can be difficult trying to stay focused during multiball if you happened to eat a lot of Mexican food the day before.
Plants vs Zombies 2
What do you do when you have a game that's super popular and addicting? Make a sequel that's even more addicting. If you're wondering why your legs keep falling asleep after getting up from the commode, it's because three hours have passed by. You also didn't notice your family called the police because they thought you went missing.
Who can think of food at a time like this? We can! Nothing kills time like slicing up tasty strawberries, coconuts and oranges. Fruit Ninja's Arcade Mode is a blast, and it's the perfect time killer as you slice up your digestive system after eating too much fast food. Heeya!

Fieldrunners was a really popular tower defense game, and the sequel took everything fans liked about the original and cranked it up a notch. Now we're droppin' bombs in the bathroom and on our iPhone at the same time. It's military harmony!
Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga came out of nowhere and caused an entire nation to stay up late at night trying to pass one of their impossible f-ing levels without spending money on power ups.

No matter which one you fire up, you'll be sling shatting your way into the fun zone while on your porcelain throne. Stomach hurt? Who cares, you're playing Angry Birds.
