Optimal presents

I grew up with agnotheistic Christmas traditions, but now I live under a Russian version of Hanukkah gift-giving conventions.  I prefer the latter because I get something every night, not to mention that I (usually) get it sooner.  Last night I got Civilization IV, and it was Sao Tome dark chocolate the night before that.  Getting five or ten things all at once doesn’t make me five times happier, so the new system is more neuro-efficient.  Plus, the gift card for Natasha is less likely to be lost under a big pile of stuff…

Abandon all hope of continued productivity for the remainder of your break, if you install Civ!

The only gift I’m actually excited to get anymore is an Amazon gift certificate.

Civ IV can easily take up 40+ hours of your week. If you like the game, i would guess that you will spend a minimum of 10 hours a week on it.

“Last night I got Civilization IV”

And he was never heard from again. 🙁
