Hellvellyn. I'm jealous. Last time I was up there (up Hellvellyn, I mean) was 1986. We were worried about drinking the stream water (above 2,000ft) because of Chernobyl....We slogged up with full kit and disgusting dehydrated rations, to camp the night later on, and on the way to the top passed an Indian family, kids from 3 to 10 (dressed like they'd all had a walk on Brighton beach) with a complete indian feast laid out on a picnic blanket in a sheep shelter, pops, chutneys, biryanis, meat and veg curries, nans, the lot. Was even more jealous then.
Looked at Go. Downloaded a free version. Looks complicated and interesting (40 million, mainly Asian, play it, I read - ignorant me, I'd never heard of it....). Doesn't immediately appeal as it reminds me of a sophisticated noughts and crosses at the moment. No doubt you have to get out of thinking about it like that to appreciate it. It's in principle solveable, however, just like chess - just too many variations for present computing power, forcing the computers to have to be set up to read patterns as humans have to. That makes it more appealling - you're right (to play against a computer, at any rate). Might give it a Go....
I play chess on either Fritz or Shredder - both are scaleable, and if I scale them so their ranking is lower than mine I can win, but it feels silly because they make obvious and stupid blunders. Feels like playing your dad and he lets you win and that's obvious (though my own dad never did). Prefer to play against humans, obviously.
Would rather play Command Ops than any other game, really. Having some fun with Achtung Panzer: Op Star, but the AI isn't quite like Command Ops (though it's the best, imho, for that type of tactical game). The best thing is playing command Ops multiplayer - head to head, I mean. Great fun. Seriously. Will get round to that again when the patch is finalised and attacks are sorted.
