Myst and Civilization Update

It seems that I spoke too soon about Myst. It turns out that all I needed were a few little hints to get started, and now, now the puzzles are starting to get addictive. It feels surprisingly like my last graduate homework assignment. It took a little while for me to catch on, but once I did, it was pretty smooth sailing and it didn’t feel much like work. That same impulse to figure things out has hit with the game.

In other news, Mark was awesome enough to get me Civilization III Complete. I’ve resisted the urge to install it so far–I still have a bit more research-related stuff to finish and then there’s that whole packing thing–but I did start reading the manual. And I predict that, not only will I love this game, but I’m certain that my little sister will want to play it, too. She’s too much of a history geek (and possibly a meglomaniac like her sister?) not to love it.
