I just wanted to write this blog to thank all of my Facebook friends who have taken the time and effort to send me lives on Candy Crush Saga.
If I haven’t sent you a life yet, and you need one, by all means contact me.
The TRUE meaning of this blog entry.
Damn you King.com. DAMN YOU.
This nifty little gaming company is f’ing brilliant, and valued at over five million dollars. I’m waiting for it to go public so I can invest.
I don’t consider myself a “gamer girl”. Thanks to my smartphone, waiting for the traffic to move on the 405, or waiting for the subway, I’m constantly killing time (and precious brain cells) by playing. EVERY TIME I get on the subway in New York. Literally EVERY TIME, at least THREE people around me are playing Candy Crush Saga. Seriously.
The kind of cool thing about playing this, is that I really feel that everyone is making such a community effort to help each other by sharing lives so no one has to shell out a dollar to obsessively continue a failed level. Once you get tired of that level, it’s totally fine because you can play it’s creepy sister game Bubble Witch Saga. Far more intense and it involves acquiring coins and magical potions. One potion valued at $89.00 (no I did not purchase that).
It makes me happy to send lives to people I went to high school with that I never got to know very well back then. (Kjirsten, by far you are the most reliable life giver out there!) A girl that refused to give me a ride home one day (okay this was over 20 years ago but it still made me a little sad) simply because she did not want to, started sending me requests for lives…let bygones be bygones! Now we exchange lives daily. All is forgiven! We’re all in this game together you guys!!! Teamwork!!
Today I had coffee with a friend and we spent a good 20 minutes seriously discussing Bubble Witch Saga. It looks a little scary.
We started talking about magical potions, “Arcane Bubbles”, “Doom Bubbles”, and we realized that we were two grown women seriously talking about video games. We were being kind of loud…but everyone else in the coffee shop probably, sadly, knew what we were talking about. Then we traded phones and attempted to help each other beat levels we were stuck on. No luck. It was truly a great effort though.
The least I can do is offer this piece of advice to my fellow gamers out there:
