    "Almost a "Lego meets Minecraft" game with no real rules or guidelines on how to play. It lets kids be creative and do what they want. As a teacher, I like that and it lets me inject some learning opportunities into the game. The problem is steering kids away from Minecraft since that's what they're all familiar with... but, I think this game is just as fun."

Once you get Gold membership (about 10$), any further spending does little to advance you (unless you use huge piles of real money). It does take a while to get the hang of, but the community is nice. If you want a deep strategy game that goes on for about 1 year, this is it."
