As with every holiday there are these “empty moments” when nothing is going on and nothing needs your attention. Mostly it is early in the morning, late in the evening or when the ladies were getting a tan.
For these moments I loaded a game called “Forge of Empires” on my iPad (well, you are a gamer or you are not 😜).
The game is about building a city and taking it from the stone age way into the far future.
You have to build houses for your citizens. Create an army. Conquer land. Defend your city. Produce all kinds of goods and much more.
Luckily, you don’t have to be present all the time. You can just quit the game any time you like and look hours later what all happened. New goods may be produced. More money may be collected. Other players may have visited your tavern or repaired your items…. or your city may have been attacked 😮.
Of course the idea behind this game is that you buy for real money in-game items that will help you to process faster and easier in the game.
Apart from a few euro when I was completely stuck in the game, I will not spend real money on this game. And for the most this is not needed at all, just some patience is needed.
I think I will keep this game loaded on my iPad. May be nice for traveling by train to work and back home again.
