Arcade problem?

I was able to use the arcade page before, but now when I try to go to the page I get this message

papillonmama, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

When I try to see if I have to adjust some sort of arcade option in my user options, the screen goes blank.

Thanks

Same. I was there this morning to check it out. I tried to play a few games, but clearly did not know how---maybe they blocked me because I only scored a 1 and ranked 141 for the game I was trying

As per the announcement the arcade has been temporarily disabled to troubleshoot some problems.

Sorry addicts

I can't use it either, It says I don't have sufficient user privileges. I have played the games before.

I dont know how you all do so well at those games! I must have poor hand-eye coordination or something.
I tried some of them...but was an embarassing washout.

What egg game?

Oh, and I love how when you click on arcade, they have an option for temper tantrum people-
LOG OUT or Home? What do you want to do, eh? Eh, big baby? You want your games? Well, you can't have them!!! What are you going to do about it?

If youi are desperate, you can check your history (browser files) and find the swf files for the games and then copy the game to your hard drive. But it is not as fun as competing with others. Can anyone tell me how to play that hexawhateveritis? Amd what egg game?

LOL no, it doesn't say temper tantrum people, it's just you have an option to leave pets.ca right away when you see the "you can't access the arcade" page... Sorry, I'm not funny tonight... Not enough sleep...

CK in hexxagon, you click one of your pieces and a grid lights up. You can move into any of the hexagons that is lit up. If you move one hexagon away, you get a new piece, but if you move more than one, that guy jumps and you stay the same number. If you end up beside the opponents pieces, you change them to yours. The idea is to have as many of yours at the end as possible.

SWorry Prin, I don't get it - I followed your instructions (on the game I dled) and I am worse than ever, they have 27 to my 1!! They keep stealing mine - how do I steal theirs? What do you mean if I move next to them, when I do that, they get it... tyhis game just sucks and makes no sense!! (It might if I could figure it out, lol) Is there anywhere online with instrcutions? I'd love directions for some of the others too - and well, as for PacMan, I just don't do well at it, even thop I get the rules, lol

Well, there were 31 red thingies (yours) and 27 white thingies (theirs) and there were no more spaces left to fill. When you move to a hexagon directly touching the hexagon with the opponent's thingy in it, it changes to your color. But you can jump two spaces away, so if you get too close, they'll jump at you and change you. It's not an easy game, you know.

For those of you like me who find the egg game too challenging, this one that I already posted before is a lot easier and more relaxing...

Prin, I got the fact that I had more pitons (sp?) - what we say in French, lol- than they (it) did and also that it is not as easy as it looks part - it is the strategy I need to fgiure out. I mean, is it like chess[ are there goals that you can think 5 moves ahead?

Sometimes... But I think it's more of a "if I move here, how many of me will he change?"
