Tiny CIties and Pirates!

I picked up a new computer game last week. I find most computer games to be sort of brainless, aimless relaxation time - a way to turn off the brain from thinking about work or other problems, and just drift for a couple of hours.

Yes, I know it makes me a huge geeky nerd. I'm certainly past the age where I should be considered "a gamer", I guess, but I enjoy them.

At any rate, the game is Anno 1404: Dawn of Discovery, which is a city-building strategy game with pirates! It's fascinating and I have lost a number of hours to this time-sucker over the weekend. Setting up cities, building roads, sending ships off to trade good and fighting off pirates - its

Fascinating. And geeky. But highly recommended!
