Free Expansion for Crusader Kings II

The Reaper's Due expansion for Crusader Kings II is now available for free on Steam (thanks PCGamesN). This requires the original game, and is yours to keep if you pick up your copy before tomorrow afternoon. The add-on brings the fun and frivolity of the Black Death to Paradox Interactive's strategy/RPG for Windows, macOS, and Linux. So prepare to bring out your dead, and read on for the cheery details:
Little remains of those settlements where the Black Death has passed through. Hasty burials make a mockery of the sacraments and set a feast for the crows. Once prosperous provinces have been laid waste, and the lord of the land hides away – secluded in his hilltop fortress, hoping the plague will pass him by. Wiser princes took precautions, and didn’t waste the revenues from more prosperous years.
But, in time, all must pay The Reaper’s Due.

The Reaper’s Due adds a host of new mechanics centered on the Black Death and other world shaping epidemics. Lock your gates to keep the plague from infecting your court, even if it means cutting yourself off from your suffering citizens. Peace and good management will see your provinces reward you with greater wealth and manpower, but constant war and disease may depopulate your countryside.

Could you ever get into Europa games? If so, try to take this like you did the first Europa title you played. If you never cared for that series, you won't get into this. It is basically a more complex and slightly slower moving Europa.

I just got Europa Uni IV last week. I'm going to give it a serious try.

It can't seem to trigger that "addictive" quality with other games I play, and I'd love to love this too.

I've tried so many times to get into this game and...maybe I'm just not cut out for seriously involved strategy games? I want to be but I find myself getting bored quickly. I think once I got into the meat of it and knew how to play, I'd be fine but I can't get thru the skin leather to get to the soft meat...err, so to speak...And it's weird because I used to play Distant Worlds, GalCiv 2 and still play Stellaris all the time...

Same. I've only played twice, and steam says for about 25 minutes combined. But I start, and get an alert that I need to choose an hour. I click around the menus, but can't find any way to do so. I get frustrated and decide a playthrough of xcom 2 with new mods will be more satisfying.
