Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14
Don't be fooled by the components. I remember when I first unpacked TtA, I felt a bit underwhelmed. It was only after I played for the first time, when 3 1/2 hours went by like 20 minutes, when I felt engaged at every step of the way, when I narrowly eeked out my first victory by 3 points (with very different strategies), will you truly understand the worth of the game you now own.
