Despite all our grumblings and such, we do keep playing it! I don't remember any other PC game I've played for this long (except for Fall From Heaven, a mod game for Civ).

Well done. The Slitherine-Hexwar-Matrix team have done a great job and bringing multi-player TT ancients to the computer. I hope that you have a couple of quiet ales.
