One of my best friends Alyssa is really into the Fantasy Movie League and told me all about it a month ago. I must admit, I was hesitant at first. But I do love movies and I think the appeal of “owning your movie theater” is a cool concept. Keep in mind, I’m a mega Sims fan and have been playing it since the first one came out. So, I decided I’d give it a try.
I signed up on a Friday and was unable to create a lineup because I already missed the deadline: noon EST/9 AM PST. So I had to wait until Monday night.
While I waited, I decided to snoop around the site a bit and to read the “Chatter”. I wondered, can you “like” the comments? Is this like Reddit where I can “upvote” a comment or “downvote” it? I really wanted to “upvote” a comment!
As I read the FML 101, I thought, “Gosh, this thing likes to abbreviate EVERYTHING. How confusing.” When I saw that you get a penalty of $2 million for leaving a screen blank when they only give you $1,000 FML Bux, I thought, “Oh gosh, that sucks. Better not leave any screens empty EVER!” Why do they only give $1,000 dollars?!
The next move I made was to join a league. It was hard to find a league because so many of them are private, but the public ones seemed decent. So, I joined one that Alyssa was also in.
I have to add, while I’m writing this, I’m listening to music. Foals’ new album What Went Down is perfect to listen to while writing! I personally have the first three songs in my music library, but via Spotify, I’m listening to the full album. Thanks Spotify!!
