    I’m pretty close to deleting my account too. I just keep getting slammed. I haven’t made any progress in the last 2 months. Nothing new, no new research. It sucks. I am transferring 130K of crystal to my main planet and it will be there at 11:01am. I have a meeting from 11-12. If it’s gone when I get back from my meeting, then I’m done.

    Speaking of which, remember when I tried to get you to fleet save me but Stephanie was waiting for me to leave for a meeting, so we had a horrible miscommunication and I got slammed? That sucked too.

    Dude that sucks, it appears you are definitely a better sport than me.

    I don’t remember that. You got slammed because of me? When was that? Did I do something wrong? Dang it.

    I got an email about this Ikariam and was going to ask if you knew about it. But I forgot.

    BTW, I’m in Gamma.

    Another new element this game has is the economy. You have to make deals with people and trade to get what you need, sort of like the auction house in WoW. Each island only has one type of luxury resource, so everyone has some type of leverage. When you put your goods up for sale, you have to check the market to see what a good asking price is.

    Pretty neat.

    I just tried to log in to oGame and apparently left my account inactive too long. I thought that by putting it in vacation mode it would save it indefinitely. Oh well…

    Playing Ikariam now, and it seems much more fun anyways.

  6. The Gimcracker 22 February 2008 at 8:15 am #

    You can’t be on vacation longer than a month. I agree, so far it is much more fun.

    If you lack the knowlege of a PRO OGame player, why dont you just go to http://www.OGAMEBLOG.com and learn? They have articles, tips, and tricks very useful for a heavy weight OG player.
    Once again, check out: http://www.OGAMEBLOG.com

    That dude just made me quit OGame all by himself. I never want to be that guy. It’s just not worth it.

    Heavy weight OG playa? Gah, I need to get out of the house more. Farewell, Universe 31.

    I’m in. I spend all my time at work just sitting around anyway, so why not build a town while I’m at it, yeah? I joined the Gamma too, Bri, so maybe we should get an alliance if we ever get to that research level. The name’s Macarius of the town Perelandra. Yeah, I’m reading it so I couldn’t come up with anything better.

  10. The Gimcracker 25 February 2008 at 6:02 am #

    That’s great! I just changed my research field to Seafaring so I could research Foreign Cultures so I can build an Embassy so I can make a treaty! I hope it works. I’ll keep you abreast of the situation. That’s what she said.

  11. Caleb 25 February 2008 at 9:54 am #

    Yeah I just wanted to get my townspeople drunk, but now that that’s almost ready, I’ll start getting there too. We should make an alliance when we can then start doing what they did to you in OGame. That’d be great. I’m Macarius on the Roohios Island just FYI, please don’t loot me. I’m gonna go do a post about this on WW. Thanks for making my work life fun. That’s what she said. wait…

  12. The Gimcracker 25 February 2008 at 11:11 am #

    Good – get em drunk and keep em happy. I think you can keep them happy with a museum too, but building a museum requires a treaty with another player. That’s what I’m trying to do now. I’m not sure if I’ll try to get a cultural goods treaty or start an alliance first. I guess it depends on how easy it is to upgrade my embassy.

  13. The Gimcracker 26 February 2008 at 11:01 am #

    If anyone is in Ikarium, please post the coordinates of your island so I can create an alliance and make treaties with you, and so I can send you messages in game.

  14. Christopher McCulloh 27 February 2008 at 7:12 am #

    My coordinates in Gamma are:

    26:73; city: Caiuthus; name: cmcculloh
    26:74; city: colony; name: cmcculloh

  15. Chris 8 March 2008 at 6:24 am #

    Brian and Leb, will you guys post your coordinates please? I can’t ever remember where your Islands are…

  16. The Gimcracker 8 March 2008 at 10:15 am #

    My capital is 300 Azeroth on Bayhios [35:70].

    My other 3 towns are:
    300 Outlands on Estietia [36:70]
    300 Kalimdor on Tasyos [35:71]
    300 Tanaris on Scholoios [36:71]

    You guys may want to check


    there are guides, calculators, and stuff.

    Btw, you dont need a treaty to build a musseum, nor to upgrade it, you need one to get an “art work” to display it in them. Also, you can rearrange them later on. Just check the website if you have some time.


  18. The Gimcracker 19 March 2008 at 8:43 am #

    Thanks for the link. At first it was all in Spanish, but then I saw the English link… you almost lost me :)

  19. Ikariam 20 March 2008 at 3:27 pm #

    It’s a good game if you have time to waste seeing that you have to make the moves and then just wait.

  20. Silvia 20 March 2008 at 4:08 pm #

    Yes, the whole site is also in English!

    Sorry if the link wasnt visible enough! :S

  21. The Gimcracker 21 March 2008 at 2:22 pm #

    That’s OK, I just have a really short attention span LOL.

    Yeah, you hit the nail on the head about wasting time in between the moves you make in the game. That’s why it’s the PERFECT game to play while you’re at work.

  22. Cronus 7 April 2008 at 11:40 am #

    I have been playing Ikariam since they had the beta set up on .net. I agree it is a lot better than Ogame.
