Post Resuming an old addiction
Less than 2 weeks ago, sitting at home with one of my long time friends enjoying a glass of something very nice which came from Scotland, as usual we were talking about gaming. Two things we've both done over a long time - drink whisky and gaming. Out of the blue he says "what we need is something like Stablemasters, a proper addictive horse racing sim". I vaguely remembered something with John McCririck's name attached to it and something else whose name I couldn't remember so Google offered us Starters Orders. I have a feeling I played an earlier incarnation but a day after the conversation, and when I was not under the influence, I downloaded SO6 and just like horse racing it's a combination of amazing, frustrating and many other emotions - Is there some meetings I need to go to where I stand up and say "Hi, my name is Andy and I have an addiction" ??

Which reminds me, I need to tweak a training schedule .......

I had that happen with SO5, I believe I too had played Stable Masters, back when I was young (had no idea what I was doing, think I was like 10 or something) and absolutely loved it, then I had been thinking, "I wish I could find a game like that again" (I didn't even remember what Stable Masters was called so I had no hope of even finding that old thing). Somehow I was directed to Starters Orders, and went "Holy sh*t, it's like a better version of Stable Masters" I was so excited, but at the same time so prepared for disappointment (I'm used to these horse games being designed for children) when it had a demo, and one that did not seem like it was for children, I purchased it immediately and fell in love all over again.
