Last year, about this time, my son, Tornado 1, first heard about Spore. Spore, for those of you who do not know it, is a computer game where you start as an amoeba and evolve until you become a space faring race.

For one year, Tornado 1 has talked Spore, breathed Spore, planned roleplaying games based on Spore, and read books about Spore--including about it's extremely interesting system for making your own adventures--but what he has never done is played Spore.

Until tonight.

For his eleventh birthday, we bought him Spore. This was a surprise. He thought we had decided not to get it for a year.

He was sooooooo pleased (as was Tornado 2. The Cherubim, however, could care less. )

He has already completed his first stage of evolution: from cell to creature.
