A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Tasted these over three night as I was babysitting my 10 yr.old grandson Caleb. On the 3'rd night, Caleb asked:"Why are you always drinking wine, PapawHill"?? Easy response: "Why are you always playing FortNight, Caleb"? The kid probably plays Fortnight for 4-5 hrs a day, at least, with his FortNight buddies. Incredible graphics...but seems a bit tedious. He downloaded FortNight onto my iPhone w/ the intent of teaching me how to play. But it soon became apparent that it was well above my intellectual level, so he gave up.
