Well, Mom and I stayed up rather late last night playing “Ants” on Microsoft’s Gaming Zone. A lot of fun, and she managed to blow me away with some unexpected tactics. They’ve put a good amount of thought into the design of this game; physics actually work quite nicely (if you attack another ant, which falls into a water tile, it’ll drown). The maps are quite small, requiring rather advanced tactics because it’s easy to sabotage other ants, and with 4 players all running around…whew! For a time-limited Real-Time Strategy game, I’m impressed.

Meanwhile, I’ve got a link to a Christmas tradition we have, called PianoVille. It’s a little Christmas village, which I finally uploaded some pictures of. Enjoy!
