Sorry for neglecting this blog for awhile. I'll try and remedy that. Have gotten too far into Renaissance Scotland online to pull back easily, though am disentangling slowly from it.
I have had a couple interesting things happen in my (non)gaming life in the last 24 hours. First, I tried to log onto the Ogame to reinvigorate the stellar empire I was building so assiduously in the not too distant past. I'd read the 'rules' and thought therefore that I was safe in leaving it awhile. Went back to log on. They'd changed the rules. My nascent empire had dissappeared.
Lucky I'm so into Renaissance Kingdoms at the moment that I didn't go into depression...
And for some strange reason, I think I'm going to be playing a game or two of Magic the Gathering this weekend. In past, hadn't enjoyed. But that's a long time ago, so will try and get rid of the sour taste and play it as a social occasion this time.
That may be a bit of a challenge against some keen teens (and forty somethings).
