Are you sick of the same old Captchas? If so, the Drupal 7 Are You a Human PlayThru module is a good alternative to the traditional captcha on a Drupal 7 site. The module basically uses a simple game to verify that the site visitor is in fact human and not a bot.

Note: If you run into an issue that does not display the game and gives an error message. Uninstall the module, then re-install. Make sure to enter the publishing/scoring key first, followed by the form id's. These steps seemed to work for me.
