The 7 Super Fun Fidget Spinner Games
Starting with Spinz.io, It’s a free browser-based app that can be played on mobile, tablet, and desktop. It’s easy to play but difficult to win. Created by Yang and Jeremiah Spinz.io was first published on June 8, 2017, and have since updated it. This fidget spinner game is a multiplayer game where you play against other online players. The objective is to be the most powerful fidget spinner in the game. How does it work? Before entering the game, you’ll be asked to give yourself a nickname. This becomes your “gamer tag.” Then, you will have the option of going in ‘solo’ or as a ‘team.’
Once you’re in the ‘arena’, the game is fairly simple. Use your mouse, or finger to swipe if you’re on a mobile or tablet, to change the direction of your spinner. Move around to collect as many multi-colored points as you can. The more points you collect the higher your rating becomes, the faster your fidget will spin, and the more powerful you become. Keep track of your progress with the real-time leaderboard at the top right. Play with random online players or challenge your friends to a game.
2. Google Spinner
Don’t have a fidget spinner of your own but want to feel the satisfaction of having one? Just search “spinner” in Google. To ‘spin the Google spinner’, either click the “spin” button or click, hold, and drag your mouse (or swipe with your finger) in the direction you want it to spin. Clicking the ‘spin’ button multiple times will increase the speed of the spinner.
3. Fidget Spinner Extreme
In Fidget Spinner Extreme, the aim of the game is to get the fastest RPM as possible. You can either challenge yourself or challenge your friends. To begin, you have the option of choosing from four different time limits which are 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds. The time chosen will be the maximum time to achieve the highest RPM. Next, you will be given the option of choosing your controls. You can choose either ‘keyboard’ or ‘mouse’. Be ready though. Once you choose your controls (keyboard or mouse) the timer starts.
If you choose the keyboard option, use the left or right arrow keys to spin the spinner. The faster you hit the arrow keys the faster the spinner spins. If you choose the mouse option, the same goes. Click the left or right mouse button multiple times as quickly as you can to increase your RPM. Set your own spin record or play against friends. Give it a go for yourself.

5. The Virtual Fidget Spinner
Online community Scratch, a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, have developed a fun and free-to-play fidget spinner game. Featured in a video from The Richest channel. While it’s a super simple game to play, I decided to feature it here as it was developed by a 12-year-old developer who goes by the name “blobbyfish123” and, considering the built-in mechanics, for someone to develop this at the age of 12 is pretty impressive.
It’s appropriately called: “Virtual Fidget Spinner!” and fun to play. How to play? Simply use the arrow keys your keyboard to spin the virtual spinner left or right and use your spacebar to change the appearance of your spinner. The game’s reception from the community speaks for itself having already received over 1,100 favorites and 1,400 loves. Give it a go for yourself.

You’ll also need to do the same thing by clicking once the black arrow rotates around to the gold arrow to increase your tokens which you can spend in the shop to buy new fidget spinners.
