No, this is not an entry about the state of the world we live in. Today my brother Daniel introduced me to an online game called Global Conflict. For anybody who likes Risk, Axis and Allies, or any number of the Avalon Hill games, you owe it to yourself to check out this site.
Today, I conquered Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territory, North Western United States, and the Yukon. Tomorrow, THE WORLD. Well, probably not tomorrow–seeing as how it is only possible to take one turn per day.
Did I mention this game was free? Imagine, hours of world-conquering fun for free!
One word of caution…if you elect to participate in this game and find the name Conquistador in the list of players, watch out. I am on a roll!
