    Talking I used to like Gabe!

    But he put an Arcade on the village and now I need Gamblers Anonymous.

    BUT - Even worse! I can not keep a high score for even 24 hours!

    AND - Even worse again! I'm so slow I can't get alot of them back again now

    I am and mentally distraught LOL.

    (come over here I'll tell you a secret ) - Yesterday I let my DH play on my computer because I HAD to have my high score back and I couldn't get it on my own (ROFL - not that I'm childish or anything) ~ So DH sat for hours on MY computer (which isn't on at all) but I got MY high score (and lost it again ) and this morning DH says 'How do you get on that frugal village thingy'

    I need sympathy and support LOL - How do I :

    a. keep away from the arcade?
    b. (preferable) keep my high score AND have a life?
    c. Keep DH AWAY from my computer!

    And I thought Gabe liked me LOL

    LOL Bev!!!!
    I got a message I had a high score, but it ended in a page not found error and it never did show up!
    Maybe Gabe is game addicted and is trying to infect the rest of us????
    As to your questions,
    1) when you figure it out let me know!

    2) see #1

    3) get him his own! I am lucky here since dh has built us each our own pcs!

    Bev too funny!!!

    A little hint - thats why I haven't gone there yet to play a game!!! (I looked once and left immediately!!!) I'm terrible when it comes to those types of games and it would be horrible if both of us had to had the high scores and on the same game. Never know what I'd do to you.

    Oh yes - sharing in the emotional trauma here too....the other night, GW & I got into a "spirited discussion" about bills, so I went to the only place I know I can be loved and accepted as I am, but the liquor store was closed, so I came here....almost like Gabe was reading my mind, he made an "ARCADE" link appear on my screen (it did too just appear - I know everything - just ask GW - and it wasn't there before!) drawn like a stupid bug to a back porch bug zapper, I clicked that little link - about 6 hours later, I realized that GW & all the kiddos were in bed....It was 3AM....BUT - I was the reigning Tetris champ!! For the moment anyway - till some little chippie knocks me off the board!!

    Ya know what though - I swear Pacman was not that hard back in the 80's.....can Gabe get a "youth-impaired" version of that?! Please?!

    I agree not only has he got us addicted but it seems he is playing WAY too much himself!!! Have you checked out all the high scores and seen how often his name pops up???????

    My point exactly!

    He plays way TOO often and always takes my high score away

    I'm like Sara, I refused to play for a few hours LMAO! but I couldn't maintain it - and now I can't beat him either. I did once but I wanted to win by LOADS in style and my greedy addictiveness made me lose the lot LOL.

    Oh AND (lol) Space Invaders is way harder than it was when I was 15 as well - I was ALWAYS reining champion at that and now I just look stupid.

    Going off to find the complaints department!

    Hmmm... I'm thinking it's awfully funny how the guy putting the games together also coincidentally has a lot of the high scores....

    (Just kidding, Gabe!)

    I went to the arcade for the first time today, and discovered that Tetris, my all-time favorite, is there. I haven't played since we gave our Playstation away.... and I've lost any ability I once had! I'll be there practicing if anyone needs me!
