Yes it uses our revolutions PBEm server to give a really integrated and easy to use multiplayer game. It is the same as the system we used for Field of Glory which has been a huge success.

Another Customer willing to hand over cold hard cash! The FoG PBEM system has just been a revolution for my gaming, thank you Slitherine!

The multiplayer option is excellent news. I am however concerned by the "our revolutions PBEm server" comment. Does that mean if you aren't hosting the server there is no online play or is there an option for a player
hosted server?

Forgive me for not knowing about your PBEm options. This is the first Slitherine game to catch my attention.

There are no player hosted servers because of version control and security reasons.

The product page mentions "...multiplayer modes..." Does this mean there are variations. Can we play campaigns by email? Or am i reading too much into this :)

EDIT-Oops I mean product :oops:

Is there a hotseat option in this game? (like in Field of Glory)

Me too ... even though it means putting a Boot Camp partition back on my iMac.

We always support our products going forwards, and so it will depend generally on the desire for it from the community.
