The history of ClubOpolis
ClubOpolis was started by Patrick Coston (me) in the summer of 1994.
When I was in college, a friend of mine had SimCity Classic before SimCity 2000 was out.
I never got to play it because there were always too many people crowded around his computer.
I decided to buy it for myself but I never did. Then SimCity 2000 came out and I finally
bought it along with the book
SimCity 2000: Power, Politics, Planning.
I was instantly addicted. I wanted to learn as much as I could about SimCity 2000
so I started ClubOpolis.
I lived in New York and worked for Prodigy(r) when I started the club.
I wanted to become a better simmer and I figured running contests was a way to achieve this.
I left Prodigy after two years and moved to Seattle to be with my girlfriend.
At that time, ClubOpolis went into a coma because I didn't have the time to keep it running
because I was looking for a job.
I got a job at Microsoft and after I got settled at work I started to work on the web page some more.
Once in a while I get really busy at work and have to ignore the web page for awhile,
but for the most part, it's always growing.
Believe it or not, I have tons of content to put up. I have a "to do" list a mile long.
Thankfully I get a lot of help from my e-friends. Oh sure, I have to promise to send them all 900+ cities
or something like that, but it's worth it because I couldn't do it alone!
