The interface is criminally clunky by modern standards but I am still playing this 8 years on. A 2 player battle card game that taps into my base building itch. The diversity of build strategy within the 4 asymmetric factions is probably what keeps me coming back. In an open information game the factions would probably distill down quicker to optimal strategies but the ability to bluff keeps weird approaches viable.
