Usually, as in life, I'm more of a
I love looking at people's pictures, and seeing what they are up to, and just generally feeling like I may actually be a part of my friends' lives.
I even knew that there are games on Facebook. A couple of years ago, I fell into an addiction to Bejeweled Blitz. I had to wean myself off gradually. It was a painful process. ("No, c'mon, we can break a score of 200,000!")
Since then, I've been wary about what games I'll play. I tried Gardens of Time after receiving a request from a friend. It's light-hearted and fun. I typically play when I'm traveling for work. I started Dragon Age Legends (have we gotten to the part where you learn I'm a Bioware fangirl? hmm well we will). I started that during beta but haven't gone back and revisited in a while. Will probably correct that soon.
But last night in my hotel room, after playing some Gardens of Time, I discovered Farkle. It's a press-your-luck style dice game, and a variant on a game that my family plays at holidays called 10,000. Apparently I missed out when my friends were playing this game. But my sister and I are playing now (she's kicking my butt, for the curious).
Farkle, in addition to being fun to play, is just a fun word to say. Farkle farkle farkle farkle. I mean, what else rhymes with sparkle?
I am obsessed. Oh yes, I will get a high score. I will beat my sister. Who needs sleep.
In related news, I was strangely tired at work all day today. Had to resort to caffeine, which I try to avoid most of the time. (Mostly so that when I do need it, it's still effective. I know. I'm twisted like that.)
Here's hoping I go to sleep before midnight tonight! Farkle. Farkle. Farkle.
