It would only be a matter of time before the game spreads further. I would appreciate if more participants would help me out is sharing their wisdom in the games played. They would be essential for the progress of the game in the world. PS: There is a crazy typhoon/hurricane hitting Taiwan where I am now tomorrow and perhaps 2 days later.
