Feature idea: friends list.

I've just played a game with some awesome players. Now I'd like to stay in touch with them, without having to exchange email addresses. A friends list to which I could add people would be really nice. Whenever a friend joins a game that hasn't started yet, this game could be listed on my home screen, inviting me to join (with the friend's name indicated).

I must admit I was a bit miffed when my "Completed Games" dropped off the list after a few days :p

One of the best games ever made (first RTS game, in fact), now on Android... for free!
Dune 2 is a Westwood Studios game put together back in 1992, and it's proba...

I was wondering: How quickly do you get dropped from a game for inactivity, and is there any way to stay in a game if you're gone and without internet for a week?

Absolutely excellent food, not too expensive, and great staff. The location is beautiful and we really enjoyed it. It's probably one of the best restaurants around Horsham.

I'm a massive fan of Indian cuisine, and this place is better than most Indian restaurants you can find in London (where, it is said, you find the best Indians west of Delhi). I've tried almost every dish on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The staff is super friendly, the food is great, and the atmosphere is very fitting. The only thing is that it's a bit pricier than your average Indian, but rice and poppadoms are included.

The food in this restaurant was probably the most horrible Chinese I have ever eaten. On top of that the price is quite high for Chinese, so you would expect more. Avoid at all cost! Only positive point: the staff is nice, they're trying...
