Not me.  The Steam page in English looks like a poor version of Google translate, but if the game play is good?  :)

I also freely admit, when I clicked on the link to this post, that I thought this was going to be a thread making fun of our resident poster, bobarossa!    <:-)

I checked Steam...it is posted that they added AI to the game just this week.  Head to head play is no longer the only option as was (and correctly so when the article was written) cited in the wargamer review from February.

  Yeah, they wanted to avoid paying me for rights to the name so they changed it.

And every time I see the game's name I think of burritos.

Kind of sorta reminds me of 'Soldiers of Empires' by Igorlabs. 

This game looks interesting.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

That's what I was thinking.  My favorite burrito is the Barbacoa at Ecoli-potle.

I am curious to see how the AI is.
