Ok, I admit it. I’m addicted to an electronic game. Yes, for years I’ve been pointing my finger at my mother, kids, and friends who play Angry Birds. But now, I have succumbed. No, I don’t have time for any pissed-off birds fighting pigs (or whatever it is, they do). I much prefer the sweet, gentle frogs in Pocket Frogs.
I love my frogs. I play them in the morning, during lunch break, and at night (sometimes on my afternoon break, too).
What’s the game about? Well, there’s no skill required. You’re basically jumping a frog from lily pad to lily pad, and collecting frogs (there’s over 50K to collect) and breeding them, and racing them. I take a huge thrill in collecting color-coordinated sets. You can pick the habitat they live in and fill it with leaves and rocks to keep them happy. What makes me happy is a Cocoa Ceres Geminus (breed and color of frog). Last week they updated the game with 10 new frogs! Such joy.
All right, I know. Frogs? No birds? And why waste time on a silly game? Well, it’s fun, and yes, a little exciting, and—I just like it. Is that a good enough reason? I’m not sure. But yes, I think it’s okay to have a silly little passion that makes you smile. And now my kids can point their fingers at me. And if you play the game, let me know. We can trade frogs. 😉
And I should mention my latest, ASHES OF ANGELS is in stores now (for a very short time) so if you’re into angels, demons, vampires (and there’s a nephilim lumbering around in there, too) pick up a copy! Or better yet, comment today, for a chance to win a copy.
So tell me, do you have a favorite electronic game you play? Are you addicted to it? Or some other fun, silly little game/hobby you might enjoy?
