One month has gone since my last blog post. A lot has happened in real life, and in my game worlds as well.

New year, new games! For me, 2018 begins with a hopefully great expansion coming: Civilization VI's "Rise and Fall". It will be released on February 8, which coincides with me leaving my current job.

I'm not the "stereotypical woman" who drools over getting jewellery, so receiving something gaming-related really is what I prefer. :p On our anniversary, I … Continue reading Christmas loot
Bookahnerk had pre-purchased Civilization VI for himself and for me and we've both been looking forward to the game's release for weeks now. Since I've spent the week being sick while still going to work every day (thank you, painkillers, for helping me out), we spent Friday evening being very lazy. He brought home Subway … Continue reading A few hours in Civilization VI
When reading through the Steam community hub of Funatics's game "Valhalla Hills", I saw a post by a player saying that Funatics was recently acquired by InnoGames. The post is in German as well as most news postings I found about this happening. However, an English post that I found specifies that Funatics had to … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (Mai 2016)
