I am now of the one of the millions of addicted gamers. True. I'm playing a game called Elvenar which is a fantasy city builder. A friend of mine introduced me to it and since then I've spent countless hours playing it.
It's time like this, I'm happy I've got a day job as that gives me a rest. It is truly addictive however in way it's a strategy game.
So it starts off very easy and progressively gets difficult. I'm on level two and this is where strategy comes in. And boy does strategy play a part.
