OMGMOBC

Just a real quick one today, as things begin to settle down for me. Hopefully that means I can be more of a presence over the next little while. We’ll see. Life has a way of getting in the way.

Anyway, Jess asked a pretty simple and straightforward question:

Hi Kristen! I saw that you have an account on omgmobc.com. I’m wondering if you play often and what your favorite game is. I’d love to play against you sometime. My username is [CENSORED]. Thank you! 🙂

[The user name is censored above in case she didn’t want random people from here tracking her down. If you don’t mind, Jess, please feel free to post your username in the comments below!]

As many of you know, I used to play online games at OMGPOP before they went all buggy and defunct. I really liked that site because they hosted several simple games, but also allowed chat during them. I’ve yet to find another online game place that allows chat like they did. That was a big draw to me. If I just want to play games, I’ve got plenty of options (and really, I never just want to play). I like to chat, though, and OMGPOP was a great way to chat and meet new people, and entertain myself during the slower times.

Well, recently I discovered that OMGPOP is back, sort of. Someone’s been hosting a site that has many of the same games and the same or similar layout/design. Best of all, not only is chat enabled the way it was for OMGPOP, but now users get to decide when games start! That means, that if the chat is more interesting, we can focus on that and never have to deal with the distraction of games.

So, yes, I’ve signed up under the name bunnysdreams and I’d be happy to play with any of you there. You can find the new OMGMOBC at this link. The friend function doesn’t seem to be up and running yet, but you can search by user name and leave public or private messages.

I’ll see you there!
