If you are able to give me the money via donationcredits or PayPal then I'd be happy to make the purchase(s) for you. (But I guess you could buy it from PayPal yourself on Impulse.)

Hey that's weird. You can buy all 3 of them in the Trinity bundle for $40 or you can buy them separately for $24.

Sins: $4
Entrenchment: $10
Diplomacy: $10

Trinity (all 3 above): $40

EDIT: Actually it's cheaper (by a few cents) if you buy the Expansion bundle (Entrenchment+Diplomacy) for $19.95 instead of getting them separately for 9.99+9.99 = 19.98.

I think that's because of the sale this weekend.

I bought Sins at this sale price and I am waiting for the expansions to go on sale later. They would just be sitting unused while I played through the main game anyways.

That's not how the expansions work. They simply add functionality and features to the main game, making the whole thing (much) better. At no point would you not be playing the expansions if you have them installed.

There is no "main" game. Sins has absolutely no campaign/story mode. It's purely solo skirmishes or multiplayer.

That's not how the expansions work. They simply add functionality and features to the main game, making the whole thing (much) better. At no point would you not be playing the expansions if you have them installed.

I believe you can actually play without the expansions even if you have them installed. A time when you might want to do this is, for instance, if you wanted to play a match with other players who didn't have the expansion(s).

Or if someone has Entrenchment but not Diplomacy, you can just play without the Diplomacy expansion by running Entrenchment and then you can play together.
