I am a bad gamer.  I have a real problem with figuring out where to go to find your next mission or how to solve the weird puzzles.  I get killed a lot.  And the frustration always make me give up after a few tries.

But this real time game (if it takes 4 hours to build a building – it takes four hours!) has had me hooked for the last few months.  Foe is a free online game where you build your little city through the ages.  I have played for a few months already and I am still in the Middle Ages.  I have recently been able to join a guild and now I am part of a team of players.  Having great fun!

  1. How are the graphics. Many browser games are low-tech and have poor graphics. That is a make or break for me :) I play LOTRO and have for many years, but I am always on the lookout for something else in addition. Thanks!

    1. The graphics are great, Rita. You are able to set the level according to the size of your computer but I like the little animations :)
