My current time wasting activity would have to be checking in on progress in the game Screeps. It’s something that continuously runs, like a typical MMO game, but it does sometimes need small pockets of focused concentration, to get those tiny bots (“creeps”, in game terms) back on track, should they misbehave. Sometimes, the in-game memory needs a bit of pruning to keep it running as well. I’ve recently respawned at a new location, so the rebuilding process is underway to reestablish some territory for me. I just noticed that the player who ousted me from a previous sector is just one sector away. Hopefully, they won’t look westward. I’ve got 9 days before I can expand again. That’s 9 days to get at least one base fortified enough to withstand an assault (I don’t currently have allies.)
This game works best in desktop systems and web browsers, although I can peek in on it from my phone.
I almost chose Pokemon Go, but I use that usually when I’m on my walks, so it counts as a workout (on iOS!) and not really a time-waster at that point. So, now, it’s your turn:
What is currently your favourite time waster?
Leave a comment, or post with a link back. Maybe there’s some fun stuff I might try.
