Signing up for an account on Forge of Empires was extraordinarily easy. It didn’t require an email address, which is unusual for online games. I gave dritchie1031 as my username. The introduction was pretty standard for resource management games like this, where an “adviser” guides you through the basic buildings and resources. It was difficult figuring out how to switch worlds in order to be in the same world as some other people in the class (Langendorn). In addition, there was no tutorial on how to add friends, send messages, or modify any settings. If I didn’t have experience with games like these, it would have been difficult to understand and find these things. I decided to name my city DanLand, although I am likely to change this in the next week or so.
