It became time intrusive.
So weaning didn't work, so I just stopped. I didn't even finish the games I had in progress - and I gave no notification even to the actual friends I was playing.
So, I took more solitary routes of app-game playing. Lots of backgammon, but honestly, I have yet to find one I like.
710 was playing Spelling Bee via the New York Times app / subscription. He'd get faux annoyed at me for looking over his shoulder and trying to provide words for him. .....lately, I've just taken the game over.
If you're a subscriber - as are we - it's "free". If you're not, you can pay a king's ransom of $6.95 per month (!) or $39 a year. But that fee also comes with a handful of other games other than the Bee.
