I would say, as someone who favors weewar to chess, that they are very similar in difficulty and complication. however the scale of weewar over chess can't be ignored.


hehe well it's mainly me & GD, and I was mainly arguing it's more like chess than not. At least I think I was - things got confusing when GD started agreeing with me (or someone like me ). I haven't even read any reviews of the game

Scale in the sense of a far greater number of permutations makes a difference in complexity though...?

Anyways, yep sorry drdrew Back on topic - this is all I can add (Alexa)

I'd like to share a story with you all that this thread brought to the front of my mind.

I was playing weewar instead of studying for class in the atrium of the engineering building when one of my professor's stopped by to see if we had any questions. I am so addicted to weewar I continued to play while he was talking to us. He then noticed me playing the game. He was instantly attracted to the game and spoke to me for 15 minutes about the game. He mentioned that he was going to go home that night and introduce his son to the game.

Oh, and here's some bio data for GD analysis.

Age = 46
Sex = Male
Careers:
Concrete finisher, 10 years.
Mainframe programmer, 14 years.

Am currently studying Civil and Environmental Engineering.

I'm curious. Did the other key demographics have to get permission from their wives to get a pro account?

I don't know that I asked permssion. I said, "I really want to do this and look how cheap it is." She asked if I would get bored with it in a month and I said I didn't think so. So, I went ahead and helped myself.

It was that gray area where I'm not asking for permission but I'm looking to see the level of disapproval. Most married guys probably understand what I mean

If I was buying a car I would include my wife in the discussion. I don't bother talking to her about something like this when it is so cheap. It would be like her asking me if she can buy a meal at a restaurant.

I agree with Hal et al - the cash is not the issue requiring marital consent for most, as weewar is great bang for your buck

It's the dang time! I am definitely not asking my wife for permission to spend an hour, or much more , per day killing, and getting killed by, your digital mini-warriors. Despite the potential implications for world peace and the development of my cutting edge strategic thinking skills.

Well maybe I ought to get around to telling her, eh?

The money is nothing, it's the fact that it will take away your time and keep you away from her.. lol.. That's when they start to realize the devil in weewar. It's addictive.

I don't have a wife, but if I did, I can assure you I would rather play than talk to her.. Ouch..

I think I've posted this before in the old geezers thread but here goes:

Age 37
Male
Married
Programmer/Project Manager

so where are the flood of young school kids. This data so far makes us look like a bunch of middle aged men.

edit: I thought I should add that at least two friends of mine were players for over a year then dropped. Both were men and ages were 36 and 38.

The young school kids know better than to post their personal information on a public forum filled with strange middle aged men
