    Anyone play Settlers? Clash of Clans?

    Can't say I do but there must be hours of fun to be had.

    I've never been much for gaming. The one that turned out to be by all-time fave was Unreal Tournament 2004. It's the only game I still have loaded on my PC, and it's refreshing to work out my stress by spending ten minutes in a Deathmatch blowing 35 bots to bloody chunks with the flak cannon. But that's just me.

    I used to play Civilisation quite a lot.

    But games are one of the things I've drifted away from - too busy these days.

    I wish I had time for gaming. When I do I play Tiger Woods 2004 on the original XBOX. Best golf game ever made. I have an XBOX ONE and have a bunch of games that hardly ever get played. I planned on getting into Elite Dangerous. Anyone ever play it?

    I love Civilization and Settlers. I tried getting Civ 6, but my Mac won’t support it.

    Try and talk your parents into getting you a PC. They make all sorts of educational software for Windows now.

    OMG you are worse than a teenager, you are an Itard. That explains so much.

    Before anyone jumps in, I know smart people can use Mac and be fine with it. However, style over substance and being spoonfed that you are a special thinker and that is why you are a mac user are the traits of @Federal Farmer and your obnoxious Itards. FF checks every box for an Itard. You can grow out of being a teenager and learn things, but being an Itard is a lifelong problem where you seek out things that make you think you are specvial.

    I am pretty sure this means FF is also a hipster. Someone check him for PBR.

    Just think, in 10-15 years from now we’re going to hear about another school shooting in Seattle. All because daddy couldn’t figure out what he wanted to be when he grew up.:(

    I’m not sure if this is supposed to be an insult or a joke... kids jokes just don’t click for me sometimes.

    If you have an iPad, it's apparently available on that as well.

    I don't watch TV aside from Trek. In fact, the last movie I saw in theaters was The Last Jedi. I read (primarily) and I play video games a few nights per week. I used to love the Civ games but I can't play them any more. The last long weekend I had, the boy went to his grandparent's house. I decided to boot up Civ V (Gods and Kings) and play a little. 500 turns, and 12 hours later, I'm about to unleash the most mighty military in the history of humanity across the globe. I captured 14 cities and cleansed 10 national capitals with nuclear fire in my first wartime turn.

    So, yeah, my time management may have failed that day. I don't play Civ anymore.

    There's no such thing as an old iPad.

    They're all new to me.
