So for over a year now me and Becca have been playing this online server game called travian. It is a pretty fun game that allows players to create midevil age towns and troops and pit them against each other in real time. You tell the troops and village units what to do and then wait for them to acomplish the task. It is kind of a fun game, except that once you reach a certain size of empire no one will mess with you and there is no new activities/quests to go out and do, so you end up in a rut.

I bring this up because our alliance leader wants to know if we will join the alliance on the next server that opens up since the one we are on now is about to end. I would really like to continue playing but I think i want to try something with a little more action like Age of Empires 3 or WOW. The only problem with that is those games tend to eat up a lot of time per day you play(like 1.5-2 hrs). With travian it really comes down to only putting in as much time as you want per day and still being able to thrive in the game (like 15 minutes). I am at a loss of what to do. Maybe someone out there knows of a mix of the 2 kinds of games one that has long term goals that can be left to tend to themselves with a mix of player started real time battles. I dont know, if anyone has any ideas post them and I'll check them out.

    I vote to quit the gaming since it eats up so much of your valuable and limited free time. But who really listens to their mother anyway? =))) Gotta go - spider solitare is calling!

    Me and Gin play WoW. It's a ton of fun with lots of action, and we play with all LDS people. I would really recommend it! However, it can eat up a lot of time if you having trouble moderating yourself. Also, we have a bit more time on our hands so its great for us. You'll have to figure out how much you can invest in it. We've made some great real friends from it though, and don't regret it! Call me if you want to chat about it. -K
