What games do you like to play and "keep open" on your secondary monitor(s)?

Sometimes when I'm using the PC for general stuff or work, I like to keep a game running on the second monitor. Generally, it's something with a slower pace like a turn-based game, where the action can be paused, or simple puzzle games. Card games like Heartstone or Slay the Spire also work great.

I prefer to play games with a low hardware requirement and that work well in a small window.
  • FTL
  • Desktop Dungeons
  • Wesnoth
  • NEO Scavenger
  • Into the Breach
  • Point and click adventure games
What games do you play or recommend in this situation?

None. I am terrible at multitasking. I have a gaming monitor on the right and a good color monitor on the left. I usually have the game monitor off I am not in a game.

Once a week for the past 5 weeks I’ve been playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider on my main display while I stream the Cowboys game on my secondary monitor.

That’s what you meant by game, right? :p

I only have a single 43" screen, but sometimes I'll play This War of Mine in a window. Also played a bit Neverwinter Nights.

My wife plays Rift on a second computer. Most of her work involves setting up and running automated scripts. So while those scripts are running, she really can't do anything else on that machine.

A twitch stream, it's always interesting to see how other players approach some games, especially the competitive or imaginative ones.

this.. i pretty much always have a stream open on my left monitor. the rare chance there isn't anything worth watching i have Eve open.
