New Civilization 4 Expansion Pack

I am quite a nerd, but I pride myself on maintaining a solid connection with reality. Even when something sucks me in, I keep perspective. Yet this system sort of breaks down where Civilization is concerned. I could play any of the iterations of that game (and have) to the physical limits of my body to go without sleep and food. And now Firaxis is releasing a new add-on to the latest version of this crack-on-a-disc called Beyond the Sword. The additions make Civ IV operate much more like the original civilization, with a medieval UN, old-school invisible spies and espionage available in the early game, and the old spaceship system is back -- that is, you can launch at any time during the construction process, and the one who reaches Alpha Centauri first wins.

There's even a scenario... IN SPAAAACE. My August is officially shot.
