Back when I had my first Mac, I had a game called Shanghai II. It was a matching game using Mah Jong tiles. The tiles would be stacked in a pattern and if you matched all of them, you got a fortune cookie.

I relished getting that cookie.

I would play that game over and over just to get that cookie.

The tiles were three dimensional. I would play so long I would see non-dimensional things in 3D. I’d be reading a book and the words would seem to pop out of the page. It was almost like an addiction.

Eventually, I upgraded my computer and the game no longer worked. I miss it, but that’s O.K.

So why am I sharing this?

Because I’ve noticed that I’m having the same kinds of feelings about the island cycling game on WiiFit Plus.

I believe it’s because of the flags.

You cycle around the island and tag flags. Once you’ve tagged them all, you go back to the finish line. The faster you accomplish the task, the better your score.

I keep trying to beat my score. It can be quite addictive.

Today I kind of tanked because I kept falling in the river while trying to jump it to save time. Erg.
