Are We Thriving In Hardship?
Every now and then when the weather is too miserable to go for a walk, I play strategy games on my computer. My mind relaxes and can find easily solutions afterwards.
Two years ago I played a game I could not win.
If I stayed in my land, the population will grow, resources will become scarce and also the land upon which I could build and produce food.
I tried colonising, but the costs to build and transport resources to/from the mother land would soon go very high. Often my ships would be captured by pirates.
One way or another I would get bankrupt. Apparently, so would all the other players I met on the forum.
Then a computer whiz friend of mine performed some programming magic and ta da! I had 100 millions of coins to spend and no more pirates on my back!
I could finally play and enjoy it, without constantly worrying. I was ecstatic!
…for about three days. Then it became boring.
Although the conditions were ideal, there was no more satisfaction in the wins.
