|The naming of the expansion is a bit misleading - this expansion goes with Age of Empires III which was renamed (post production?) to Age of Discovery after they lost the license.
Anyways, this is a no-brainer purchase for anyone who likes the base AOE game. It adds different starting conditions for each different nation, an extra worker type, and materials for a 6th player. Must buy!
