Humble has New Frontier Pass on sale for $10 right now because the full game and all other DLC is in the monthly bundle.

So regretting not getting this because I already had it in Steam and the free games on Epic are largely spam for me. Anthology upgrade for $30 would be a no brainer for me. Having a hard time justifying $40 for Anthology on Epic (with coupon) or Steam (for owning base game) but I'm thinking about it. Looks like I have about a week to decide.
Yeah, I got it for my personal account, but pissed that I didn't bother to set up a separate account for my son (I have done this now) so would could play against each other.

Actually, now that I think about it, how would that even work?

I have CIV VI with both expansions (how I would prefer for us to play) on Steam.

I have base Civ VI on Epic, on my account. Can we play local MP on two separate platforms? Can we play if one of us has the two expansions but the other doesn't?

This is what I found with a google search. It sounds like you can play between Steam and Epic games (but not with tablet or console versions), but you do need to have the same DLC activated. I would imagine (hope?) that you can turn off/uninstall DLC to play the base game with someone that doesn't have the DLC.
This new mode is meant to bridge players between Steam and the Epic Games store. So while cross-platform play remains available across Windows, Mac, and Linux — provided all systems have the same game version and DLC activated — you still can't play multiplayer Civilization VI between PC and iOS, Playstation 4, or Nintendo Switch.

Hey, thanks for looking that up.

I did figure out how to play locally MP by logging in to both our computers via Steam, using the same account, one online, and one off. Now I'm just wondering if local, live MP for a game like this where I personally like to take my good sweet time on my turn, is a good idea. :D We only played hotseat before, and it worked fine (except we could see each other's strategic moves unless we got up from the computer)

That's an interesting offering. The base game is free and when they have you hooked, it's (on Steam at least) $20-$30 for each add-on :D

Mothergunship looks nice though, it's one of those games I've been wanting to try but just never got around to buying.
