If they had this when I had a computer at work that I came back to often.... this game would definitely appeal to me. It's one of those city builder games that has some stick figure combat in it. Everything is on a timer as far as building or healing or producing things goes.

There is a lot of harvesting in FoE and you have a limited amount of control (that increa$e$ under certain circumstances) over how often the harvesting occurs. Now matter what your increa$e I don't imagine you could ever build Rome in a day unless you were some kinda FoE genius.

Here's how I see me doing it.. Just get my estimated time away from the PC (gotta get coffee... someone needs wants something.... gotta pee...) and that's how to set production times...

Meanwhile, my lil toons gradually build things up and each day things get bigger and sleeker. And more people sit at my tavern! And I sit at theirs! That fits in real well with one or more of those estimated time away from PC reasons too. RP!

One major thing FoE has over (Elvenar) another game I'm playing from the same company (For Some Reason!) is that I can go into a builder/sandbox mode. That means, I can erase everything I've built and start from scratch with all my roads and buildings in storage to place wherever I want. Like when my new tech buildings are a different size and/or territory size increases and it's time to optimize space, or, it just feels like time to switch this structure with that. The changes don't become permanent until placing every single thing that was there to begin with, And, after hitting the I Really Want To Replace My Old Layout button. When in sandbox mode everything keeps chugging away like I left it until I hit the save button in the sandbox. Very handy when your city is built on grid paper with the sizes of things constantly changing and nearly everything has to be connected to a road that's connected to the Main Hall.

Found this game as an advertisement when playing.. Windows Solitaire. Figured it had to be safe and at least partly well done, right!? So why not... just had to click a button to play anything that wasn't the game I didn't want to play (if you get that!).

They've got a totally browser with nothing to install version and a mobile app version... The app version msgs when it's time to harvest or the tavern is full..

Now doesn't that sound like an at-work game if you can be near your PC often....? If they woulda had this back when the coffee was free and the Internet flowedeth. Oh man. I'd still be there.

I've played this game enough and had enough fun with it already that I figured it was time to make a post so there it is! *curtsy*
