About 2 years ago, I suddenly felt an urge to find some sort of little game I could play on my phone. There are countless such games out there. I entered Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes and started very, very, very small indeed. It was a year before I could be even passably competitive in the guild activities and since getting the more rewarding, more popular characters takes a lot of time or expensive crystals, it took about up to now for me to get a set of characters I really liked.
But it was very fun and I learned a lot of skills along the way that I’ve found helpful in real life, such as being patient and not freaking out if other people seem way ahead of you. Someone always will be for a while. In SWGOH these people are called “whales” and even extremely advanced guild leaders often lag behind whales. (They are also much quieter. Whales tear up the forum with endless screaming about boring things. By now they literally speak their own language and new players have a separate area of the forum.) It's after the initial period with the whales—who grab anything new—that the real fun begins. Then all the other players sort out which characters and events are really liked and by whom.
If you'd like to try this game it's free on Google Play.
And there will be more updates.
7 books published and 3 more on the way. Farmer's daughter, LOTR fan, loves to read rather than talk about reading. Always has time to finish her WIP.
