Version: 1467.002 (I shall not release a mod before it's time..:)
This Mod is designed for single player use (has not been tested online). This is designed for people, like myself, who enjoy a longer game (Hence the name "Turtle)
I started working on this Mod because I got very tierd of building walls, and defensive structures, only to have a small enemy force destory everything I put up within minutes.
As a "Turtler", I like to build my defenses first, then build up my Armies for attack. Most RTS games are designed for "Rushers", and most RTS Developers create defensive structures more for "eye candy" than for real defense, or so it seems. I created this Mod to help give us "Turtles" a little better chance to enjoy our games, giving us the ability to build "working" defenses while we expand our "Empire"...:)

Instead of trying to explain how to get 40 cards per Civ, I have made a quick Mod with only that. Just check in "Modpacks" section.
