    Being a DIY community we have a ton of creative thinkers. Have any of you played Fantastic Contraption?

    It's a good way to lose an afternoon.

    It's a pretty great game. I find myself playing it when I have a weekend to blow.

    Austin; I think to much game playing can cause short term memory loss and you start to repeat your self.

    I looked at it and played around but it's not the kind of thing that grabs me.

    Do you play games online?

    If so what do you play? I'm always looking for new games.

    No, they just don't interest me. I'm not knocking them or the people who play them, as people have different interests. What comes to mind is my kid when they were teen agers. One was playing some game or something and I overherd the other say "small things amuse small minds" and the one retorted "nothing amuses a no mind"

    I see this as an extension of the game culture that is prevalent through all human society.

    Mancala is a simple game, but I would not say it is for the simple minded.

    It's what you make of it, but then it always is.
