    My favourite computer game is 'PLANETBASE' where you are required to build a colony on a planet with a hostile environment . As you can see I have started our new home ... as Neil Young once sang ;
    Well, I dreamed I saw the silver
    Space ships flying
    In the yellow haze of the sun,
    There were children crying
    And colors flying
    All around the chosen ones.
    All in a dream, all in a dream
    The loading had begun.
    They were flying Mother Nature's
    Silver seed to a new home in the sun.
    A NEW HOME IN THE SUN

    That's a very inhospitable looking planet, @Jeff Tracy . Can't you find us one with trees, flowers, birds and such?

    My favorite game app is Paradise Cove. I started in 2013. Don't really play much anymore but still collect my rubies every day. :)

    It was nothing but one bare island when I started. There are at least 6 other worlds and coves that aren't shown in the screenshot. Ive completed them all.

    The only online game I play is the Worm Game. Bubba loves to play that. You eat thingys and get bigger. If you run into another worm, you die and become food for the other worms. I HATE THAT GAME! Every time I get big enough to be proud of, I hit another worm and die. He is loads better at it than I am.

    Wormy Shirley always insisted on being buried above ground in the proudest tradition of southern worms. No cheap cremation for this fine worm.

    That looks like it might be fun. I used to play Civilization but that game has gotten so complicated that the last version I bought, I couldn't even figure out how to play it.

    If you buy it Ken and need any help to get into it, just ask.

    If I have to go back to school in order to learn to play a game, I don't have time for it.
