Just another turn…
I came out of my WoW battle pets daze last night to play some coop-multiplayer Civilization 5 with my buddy. We’ve had this standing Civ 5 date for a while now and I must admit it has been really entertaining, much more so then I expected, considering it is a turn based game. Then again I hardly ever find myself waiting due to my being the slowest of the participants. We also chat on vent, which makes coordinating and checking in easier.
But last night, after my buddy saved and left the game at a very reasonable hour, I decided to stick around and play a bit more. See my neighbor had just decided to attack me and I simply wanted to figure out if everything would be okay before I went to bed. Big mistake!
I ended up playing ‘just one more turn’ for another FOUR HOURS. Yup, I played seven hours of Civ 5 last night and finally went to bed at 3am. I’m shocked that I’m putting words together that form proper sentences. Its going to be an interesting day. =)
On the bright side, my empire is awesome! After the first attacker ran away and cowered behind a peace treaty, my other neighbor attacked me and I wiped them out, well took over their cities anyway. Then proceeded to expand as much as I could via settlers. Of course a great prophet showed up and I had to find out how far and wide I could spread my religion. In retrospect I’m shocked I managed to pull myself away at 3am.
I was quite successful, just not at quitting. Though I took this screenshot because I thought I was going to log out, I ended up playing another half an hour; expanded south east of Trebizond and spread my religion to the far south.
