Clash Of Clans

Hey! You know we men are just boys with more expensive toys, right?  😉

So why is it that Mom gets so stressed out when we take some time to play some games online?

The only game I currently play is an ipad/iphone game called “Clash Of Clans”. You may have seen it on television ads recently. It has castles, clans, witches, wizards, goblins, barbarians, archers, dragons and lots more fun creatures with which you can attack other villages or defend your own village. It is free to download and they recently came up with a free Droid version of the game, so you can play on your Android phones and devices now as well.

My son introduced me to the game and for a while, we were in the same clan. But I play a little more seriously than he does, and so I joined an “adult” clan, where the discussions and language just aren’t appropriate for a 10 year old! I’ve been playing for almost 10 months now and have risen nicely in the ranks while upgrading my troops and defenses.

So back to the point; why do women get upset with their men playing games? Is it that they think we don’t take our responsibilities seriously? Or is it that they just don’t want us to have fun?

Maybe it’s more that they can’t relate to the game and so it’s not important to them? (But I have to tell you that there ARE women in my clan who play the game!) So maybe that’s not it.

How about it ladies, care to offer your reasons as to why you don’t like your men playing games online or on their phones and other devices?

Is it because of the name – “game”? Does that just represent playing and you feel that we men should be more responsible and spend more time with chores? Or do you feel left out? You know you could always join in, right?  🙂

I’m very interested in the other gender’s viewpoint on this. So please if you’re a lady, leave a comment?

Thank you for reading and have a great day!
