games people play

I was wondering - who of you play online games and which ones?

I used to play chess, pachisi, backgammon and scrabble on yahoo games but haven't done so in ages, for lack of time and opponents.
Does anyone else still play Nationstates? It used to be quite the fashion here, 10 years ago. My old nation died when I forgot to put it into vacation mode, but I started a new one a few months ago and so far it looks quite promising

Re: games people play

sure, they are online after all.
I don't use facebook myself, though. It's a complete nightmare as far as data security is concerned.

Re: games people play

I know ridiculous the privacy settings are ridiculously detailed and when I click I do not want to share that I have just gotten a new sword in a game it shares it anyway!

The games I am playing now are social empires, social wars, dragon city, Dark warriors (basically any social point game) I am an admin on the social point community forums in charge of social wars and social empires. Am I allowed to post a link to that forum?

Re: games people play

I don't see why not. Afaik the board rules don't say one mustn't.
My commiserations at being an Admin (I tech-admin several small boards, so I can imagine what you have to endure). LOL maybe we can talk AnthonyF and Bonzie into creating a special lounge for Mods and Admins where we can lick our wounds and find a compassionate shoulder to cry on?

Don't really play any games anymore. Only Colony Attack (a free android game) and candy crush saga at the moment.

I play Farmville 2 on Facebook. Also occasionally Candy Crush Saga but am stuck on a level and I'm getting annoyed with it!

Games people play, you take it or you leave it.
Things that they say, just don't make it right
If I'm telling you the truth right now, would you believe it
Games people play, in the middle of the night

I haven't played Nationstates in YEARS, but I vaguely remember it being fun.

I don't really play any online games. Generally, if I'm playing a game, there is some kind of drinking component to it.
