Video Game for Procrastinators

http://www.travian.us/

If you're hooked on video games like me, here's a great one!

This is a free game, something like Civilization if you've ever see that one.  You start out with an empty village and build it up by adding resources and villagers and buildings.  I think eventually you expand to other villages but I haven't gotten that far yet.

Anyway,
you give your villagers the task of creating a wheat field, or building a building, etc.  Then you can't do anything else in the game until they finish the task.  My villagers are currently upgrading the granary and that will take 35 minutes.  So, it forces me to go do something else until they finish.  Of course, I could always switch to another video game but hopefully I will fold some laundry or something constructive instead!

more video games like this one....

Hmmm, do you think that I could addict my sons to this one? I don't dare start out a new addiction, but if I can switch their's to one where they can be interrupted I would be SOOOOOOO happy....

more video games?

I play World of Warcraft so the only thing I can say is this: one cannot clean one's room right now if one happens to be in the middle of an instance dungeon.  :)

WoW

Ah, Journey, that is the game my children cannot stop playing. It has gone through phases, but it can get truly horrible: a procrastinator trying to stop two video game addicts so they can stop procrastinating....it all makes me want to go read a good book (my escapist addiction, other than spider solitaire)....

Hastiness

Hehe, I click on the link and started setting up a game before I finished reading your full post, Journey :-p Imagine my surprise when I discovered that you had to wait 3 hours to get something built :grin: Good game. Forces you to find other things to do while you're playing :-)
