Think twice

I'm not a Facebook whore, but I was invited to play a game called Garden of Time recently, and OMG, I got hooked hard. The game itself is kind of stupid, and I imagine it is a lot like Farmville, that FB game that was all the rage a couple of years ago. Gardens of Time (GOT) has you building a "museum" where you get to add artifacts as you move up the levels. It also has matching games, which is the part I really like about the game. I figure that this kind of mental workout is good for my rather fuzzy brain.

Anyhow, in order to get anywhere in the game you have to add neighbors. I only had a small amount of neighbors and i needed more in order to enlarge my museum. So I went on the forum and was immediately stumped by one of the 2 math questions you have to answer in order to register on the forum. I finally figured out the answer and posted a query for some new neighbors. Little did I know that thousands of people read the forums and they started requesting that I be their neighbor at a rather alarming rate. I felt a bit like Mr Rogers. I now have more neighbors than I will ever need.

Unfortunately, my neighbors are needy folks. They keep asking me to send them gifts. Gifts that I have to send one at a time because there is no "select all" button. This means that all my spare time is spent gifting complete strangers with virtual gifts. Plus, I need gold to finish building two projects.

The moral of the story is to think twice before you get caught up in a Facebook game. Really.

LOL! I played Farm Town and Frontierville for awhile, but I just can't sustain any longterm interest in those games.
