Anyone playing astrowars?
For those not familiar (probably all of you) it is an online multiplayer strategy game. each game lasts for months, it is not a game for the impatient twitch reaction crowd, and more than anything it's a way to pass a few minutes here and there every day.
If you ever played Master of Orion, you'll like this, it's a watered down version. The game is text only, but still a lot of fun.
You start off with one colony planet in a star system with 12 planets, you research, build, and colonize and yes, go to war, invade and so on. Your goal is of course, to be the top dog.
It starts really slow, but picks up (by slow I mean your first day will consist or making one or two moves, and reading a short faq and glossary. It DOES pick up. You can make alliances, so if you join in at nearly the same time as others here, you may end up being in a prime alliance spot. (you will be to weak to have an official alliance at startup.)
Anyhow, give it a whirl if it interests you. the only benefit I get from bringing you guys this wonderful news is half a point towards raising the culture of my civilization.
