Is anybody else playing the game? www.volvooceanracegame.com

I was doing pretty well while inside the Med, but now I'm having lots of problems.

My boat is "KnaveOfHearts" if you want to friend me.

I went nutz with it last time and was actually in the lead with room to spare coming into the finish of one of the legs. I was beating the guys using the professional routing software with luck and intuition. I would get up every one to two hours to check my boat (at least for that leg). Then I had a friend's mom pass and went to the funeral. My boat sailed into the lee of a tiny island while I was on the airplane and I got creamed. I haven't touched it since.

It's fun though.

I promised myself I wasnt going to play this time but somehow I got sucked into it anyway.
Even though it doesnt cost as much time as it used to since the iPhone app is very good.
Name is TonyF18 and ranked at 5136 at the moment.

I have to admit I registered for this one but then I read something about some problems they were having with the game. After all the bs with the last one, not happening.

I didn't use any of the routing tools last time. I did use the polar tool and didn't miss many shifts. My girl was pretty good about me getting up in the middle of the night, every night.


Have Fun

coastrat, thanks for the link. I'm enjoying live skipper. I don't like their color choices as much as the volvo ocean race game, but it's still fun. Friend me, I'm "daniel_t"
