So many great sounding options here, including a Mithrdates campaign. I think this has become a day one purchase for me.

I will be completely retiring in about 10 months. I can see now how I will spend a significant portion of it!

I must say - this looks excellent. Day One purchase.

I just spent about an hour scouring every bit of information on Field of Glory 2, from the Slitherine website.

Let's just go ahead and change the name of this site from Grognards, to Field of Glory 2. There. I said it. I don't mean it, but I have a Jones for this game like very few others in my memory.

Don't kid yourself. You'll be wondering how the hell you fitted stuff in while you were working as other stuff replaces it!

Seriously, I have 250 Steam games, and I plan on play each and every one until I get 2 hours played per each dollar spent. Yes..I have some AAA titles that will get some love.

I had the same intentions when I retired but now I got to s-q-u-e-e-z-e in time to play dammit. I think you shouldn't tell anybody you're retired for about a year. Maybe then you can get to that gaming backlog.

Sweet. I like the campaign mode and the sandbox that is in Pike and Shot. So this is definitely a buy for me.

Armies look interesting too. I'm guessing there will be either army DLC to add later eras?

You can't spell Field of Clory without DLC...
