Games People Play

I’ve always loved computer games.  My Apple II screen had burn marks in it from Olympic Decathlon, Choplifter, Castle Wolfenstein, and Ultima.  Recently, I’ve become addicted to several of Zynga’s games online, especially Mafia Wars (I’m level 52 – friend me on Facebook and join my Mafia) and Scramble (I think I’m better than I actually am so it’s endlessly frustrating.)

Zynga’s been cranking on their iPhone apps so most of my Scramble action is now on the iPhone.  However, last night Zynga released Mafia Wars on the iPhone and it has immediately moved to third place on my “things to do on my iPhone other than email and call Amy.”

I got a note from Fred Wilson this morning that he’d beat me to the punch on posting about Mafia Wars on the iPhone.  Yeah Fred – whatever – you are on the east coast and I’m on the west coast today so time was on your side.  Help me neutralize the threat of Fred’s dominance in Mafia Wars by joining my iPhone Mafia – my player ID is 1901 3272 26 – recruit me for your Mafia (I’m level 5 on the iPhone already.)

  • speaking of gaming, have you ever seen Plura processing? They use excess capacity on gamer's computers to do grid computing. Business model involves buying capacity from the game developers and selling it to those in need of computing power at prices comparable to amazon web services. i love bmodels that add a completely new and uncompeting revenue stream.

    your post got me thinking, what kind of service could use excess capacity/functionality of mobile gamers? when i look down the cab on the NYC subway, I see at least 5-6 people playing solitare or Iphone finger-snake. Games make great trojan horses, just trying to think of what to put inside of them…

    hope all is well,

  • I haven’t seen Plura – time to check it out.

  • Mafia Wars is huge , it is been played by about 4 million of people everyday.
    I love to play Mafia Wars too and actively recruiting and building up my mafia family.
    This game is very addictive however you need a guide to help you advance to higher level.
    Recently I found an ebook that help me to advance in the game and it is full of priceless and brilliant tips for mafia wars players.
