Ohh god, I love this game. Bought it over a year and a half ago, worth every cent. Problem is the larger games take me over 10 hours to finish. I've never played multiplayer, but i'd be down if some of the MCB guys wanted to have a game.
I don't have any expansions, just the base game.
EDIT: I dunno about you two, but the Vasari are my favourite faction to play as.
