;-) Well just for fun. I'm a cat person and so naturally they're my faves. They can be challenging to play (both MOO and MOO2) because of the required aggression. I'm no pacifist (hardcore wargamer since the age of 12) but in these empire building games I generally like to let my builder aspect shine forth more, I get enough massive destruction in my real wargames. So the kitties do force me to attack more than I'd like. I guess I strike first if I can, then settle down to an enforced peace and build some more then return to the offensive.
