^^^ Heh - it is addicting. I had two 6 hour sessions last weekend. Wiped out the Arabs, English and Indians. Arabs were the most aggressive and a VERY tough nut to crack. The English were a little more weak and the Indians only had their capital city after England took all the others. Love this game!
My only REAL complaint is this game's frequent need for a map refresh, graying out the tiles and slowing down the movement every time the refresh moves up the screen. Several patches have marginally sped it up in the past year but it's still dog-ass slow.
