Last night, my pal Rob reminds me of a game he had mentioned a couple days ago so I decided to sign up and see what it's all about.
The game's called Travian and plays alot like German board games, except it's broswer based and functions in real time. You can choose from 3 tribes: Romans, Gauls, and Teutons and you get to build up your holdings and expand, declare war, etc. Good fun.
Rob (StAnE) is playing a Gaul like the barbarian scum he is. I'm (Gracchus) supporting the Empire. I invite anyone to join us.
btw, I went ahead and played last night and had a blast. Going to join the larger group tonight, so more on both games later!
