A close call...

At lunchtime I did some Christmas shopping - got a few games for both the PC and Wii.

After leaving the shop I went to get some lunch. As I munched my way through my usual Monday quesadilla and cheese nachos I decided to have a closer look at what I had bought.

Then, looking at one of them I realised that either I or the guy in the shop had made a mistake - one of the games wasn't the game at all, but an expansion for it!

Just imagine that on Christmas morning!

The matter has now been put right.

Good job I was being nosey!

Once upon a time when I was stupid (har har har) I also bought an expansion of a game I didn't have.

Felt the shame burning through my soul... still have the expansion though, somewhere in the debris in my room.

What game anyway you bought for Christmas?

Shadowthorne - Yesterday I bought Mario Wii, Spores (PC) and Sims 3 (PC). What game did you buy the expansion for?

I bought Age of Empires 3 the expansion pack with the American Civil War.

I have a friend who plays the Sims (1,2 and 3) and forgot how to socialize in real life. Scary.

But I think the Sims is really a great game.

Your friend needs to boost his Social :-)

I almost bought the Sims expansion a couple years ago. I caught my mistake before I paid for it, thankfully.
