So, in an odd turn, I felt compelled to play my copy of Civilization V. I never did finish a proper game of it. (I'm not counting my training-wheels game from when I first got it.) I'm pretty far along in my current game. My biggest opponent for any victory conditions is England, who's currently oppressing 2 other countries.
This, unfortunately, means that I haven't played much Minecraft this month. December is looking to be less busy, but still pretty busy, so I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to just Minecraft out again.
