starcraft, again Mar2005

The boys talked me into playing starcraft again this afternoon. It was a hard sale, but eventually they won me over. ;)

Anyways, they've restricted me to building marines and firebats only. No tanks, definitely no siege tanks, and pretty much nothing else mechanical. They did say "You can have dropships though".

hehehe. After today's games, they've limited me to marines and scv's only. Not even dropships are allowed now.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's a computer game called Starcraft where you build armies and they fight each other. I really like it and have played it off and on since about '97. Sarah doesn't too much like the boys playing, but I think it's actually good for them. They have to really think about strategy, cause/effect, planning, saving, etc. I think it's actually a pretty good learning experience.

These thoughts are my own, unless they're yours. And if they're yours, we may have metaphysical problems beyond simple concept ownership and should probably talk soon.
