Is this both a single player and multiplayer?

Yes.

Who sells it?  I don't see a link in the AAR.

I believe it's only through Steam.

Thanks. Price looks good and the reviews are positive. Might have to give it a try.
If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Chuck Norris says its beef, then it's beef.

If women had apostrophes instead of periods they would be even more possessive!

It's a fun interesting tense game. Be prepared to get creamed the first few games though. The mechanics are easy to pick up but the overall strategy takes a bit of work to figure out.
Well worth the effort though . Fantastic port of a board game. Great UI and great atmosphere.

The best port of a boardgame I've ever bought, and I'm including things like the Carcassone and Agricola and Stone Age and LeHavre ports. Those, and several others, are high bars.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

One of the keys to the game is getting familiar with the card decks.  I think it's something that really only comes with experience.  After having my ass handed to me a dozen or more times, I finally got a feel for the early war deck.  I'm moderately familiar with the mid war deck and non familiar at all with the late war deck as near every game I've played has ended by mid war. 

I bring this up as I see you're getting lured by the AI into dumping influence into Africa on turn 2.  Remember that in the early war turns, the only scoring cards are Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Damn this is one tough game.
