The Sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
That's how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.

I'm worried it could become prohibitively expensive, if it's going to have ongoing fees, because it looks very, very addictive!

This looks so funny, I made a bear, and voted for a few "epic shows". Hopefully you don't have to pay just to play the game, because thats ridiculous.
From the email they sent out :
"In the Game World, each Epic Show is a Planet in Space. Players are on an adventure trying to get to every show of the tour. The community faces a common challenge: a tug-of-war between The Dark and Light. Darkness in the Game World is undiscovered, empty, or unkind places. The community will work together to shine the Love Light in places where there is Darkness. Light represents the collective positive vibe of the Grateful Dead experience: the music, fun, community, celebration, cooperation, individualism, hope, freedom, escape, and joy. Light is brought by acts of kindness to other players, by cooperation, and by cultivating gardens of flowers."

LOL. That made me laugh so much, but it sounds like it could be really cool

My kids play ginlinenline, like toon town, and
Star wars. These games are superinteractive and pretty amazing. I may have to stay away from this dead game, it will probably awesomely addicting.
I wish I was the headlight on a northbound train.

Yeah, I love love LOVE the idea of this, and made a bear (red with a blue neck thing like the "Bertha" bear, so I called it "Virtual B")..................

BUT!!!!!!

The whole "pay to play" thing is really dumb. Facebook doesn't even make you pay. But I guarantee this is a precursor to that which will come. Not a fan of having to pay to be a Deadhead [so much] these days.

A few CDs a year, great. A monumental tour costing hundreds? Fine. But this pay to play online game and Furthur's recent spring tour woes.....this is kinda getting ridiculous.

Oh and I like how the premise includes "light" and "dark" forces, a la Star Wars- aka the reason they chose 5/25/77 as the first Dave's Picks! It's all marketing.
