I knew it was an addictive thing. I was warned.

It all starts when HTB told me months ago about a game he likes to play (& play for hours on end, to the detriment of sleeping), called "Civilization II".

I thought nothing more of it than, oh gee that sounds nice/interesting.

A week or so ago, HTB called to me from across the apartment asking if I minded if he loaded a game onto my (now our) computer. I said sure, go right ahead as long as it'll play on that old thing.

A hour or so later I went into the computer room to see where he'd disappeared to and discovered that he was playing a game. I asked him what he was playing and he said "Civ II".

I watched him for a bit and it looked intriguing, so I asked him to tell me how he was playing & how it all worked. We did that for a bit then then next day I told him I wanted to start my own civilization and would he please help me get started.

He did. And now we have all sorts of fun scheduling our evening computer time on the one functional computer.

I got HTB Civilization IV for Christmas. Little did I know when I bought it for him just how addictive it was and how much he *really* meant it when he told me to put it on his christmas list when the warning that if he received it I would never see him again for months to come.
