Image via WikipediaWhen I first signed up for Facebook, I really wasn't sure what I would use it for, if anything. In fact, after I signed up, I probably let my account languish for a year or so. I didn't really start using Facebook until one of my two best friends from high school sent me a friend request. Then I started to try to find family and friends on Facebook.
As I got more involved in doing things on Facebook, I noticed that some of my family members had gotten involved in playing various games on there. So, I started to play a few of those games as well. Maybe I should say I got lured into playing them. I started off with Mafia Wars and eventually added Farmville and others.
At one point, I think I was probably playing five or six games. They were starting to take up a considerable amount of my precious free time in the evenings. I eventually got to the point where I decided that I was going to cut back on the number of games I was playing. At this point, there are probably two games that I play consistently, Farmville and Scrabble with my parents. There are one or two that I occasionally play when I really have extra time.
While I was on my trip to Chicago last week and waiting in O'Hare for my flight home, someone near me was reading a copy of USA Today and a headline caught my eye. The article announced that Jimmy Buffett was working with a game developer to bring a Margaritavile themed game to Facebook.
First and foremost, I am an avowed Parrothead. I have been listening to Buffett music for over 30 years now. I have read all of his books. I have eaten at Margaritaville restaurants in Key West and the local Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant here in Maryland. Needless to say, when this game launches on Facebook, I will be looking for my lost shaker of salt somewhere near the Port of Indecision.
