Hey,

I am about to buy the base game and the two expansions. My question is:
Can you play all civilizations if you want to play one of the expansions?
For example: Can we play Russia, Japan, Spain in the same game or just stick to the civilizations listed in the specific expansion?

One caveat, the FaF civilizations are generally stronger than the ones in the base game and in WaW. I would not mix between them.

Also, France is allowed 2 social policies at the start of the game, playing with the base game, the advantages that france had, are no longer present.

I assume OP would be using the Social Policies, so France would not be at a disadvantage.

Anyway, if you want an idea of who's "too strong" or "too weak" then have a look here:

And if you really don't mind investing the effort, you can obtain my "re-balanced" Civs and such:

He hasn't even bought the base game yet, I think you are all somewhat jumping the gun on who's too strong and rebalances and what not. Different groups have different playstyles which effect what sides are the best. Let them discover what play types and tactics that befit them.

Thanks guys, you rock.

I will also check the links you posted, Tid. But yeah, we will have to play a couple of games first.
