Addictive and fun game safe for all ages

This is a sleeper of a great game. From what I can see, it doesn't have a lot of buzz, but the people who have spoken up about it have loved it. I bought it for my family and both I and my kids (ages ranging 8-16) really got hooked on this game. It's a town building game set in the 1400s that has both a sandbox mode and story line. There's building, resource management, exploration, sea and land battles and a fairly decent story plot. It even has limited multiplayer meaning someone can take a second controller and click on buildings and ships to give them a temporary boost. Overall, I can't really say anything bad about it. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a casual, city building strategy game.
