Maps make this unplayable for my pal - at least a portion of it which kind of means a no buy for him.

So want this but... the cost!  :o $150 USD = $189 CAD Plus $41 USD ($51 CAD) to ship to Canada... or $15 USD ($19 CAD) to ship to my US mailbox, which I'm not even sure I can get to yet.

yeah, but if you don't get it, it'll sell out like Maxwell's NATO game did, and there's no guarantee they'll reprint it....

I’ll probably wait for the reprint of NATO….

I've had this on pre-order for 2 years.  We can fire it up on Vassal.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

I don't remember seeing this here, so....

There's a new edition of Race to the Rhine up for kickstarting: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/phalanxgames/phalanx-reprints-and-more

£45.

It looks like Kevin MacRay is doing the module for Compass according to a thread on BGG. It sounds like it could be a couple of months still before they release it though.
Luckily I was able to snag a copy from CLS games on BGG since the current print run is sold out. A really minor ding on a corner of the box got it with shipping and their
cc/paypal charge for $175.

I was about to back this until I saw the game was $90 and the postage to the UK was $58

I'll take my chances I can pick a copy up in the UK.

Besides Eleven, I went in on the Dreadnought pledge for ISS Vanguard.

That's two Gamefound fundings, but only one Kickstarter. And I won't talk about P500.  :idiot2:

Heroes of Normandie: The Battle for Caen is in its last day on Kickstarter.   I ended up backing it because of the Canuck content.  I've played the base game a few times and enjoyed it for what it is, even though I find it's a bit light for my tastes.  I actually think I like the Warhammer 40K version (Heroes of Black Reach) more than the WWII stuff despite the fact that I'm not a fan of the 40K universe or the minis system.   That might be due to the fact that I've only played the 1st edition rules of the WWII version (physical and the digital versions of the game).  I've not yet tried the new version of the game but review say it's much less clunky and seems more fluid.  Hopefully that's the case.

I'll probably back it but I'm not sure why.  I haven't gotten nearly as much play out of the base game as I'd hoped I would have.  COVID lockdowns killed off much of the FLGS gaming nights here and the game didn't really click with my usual group of gaming buddies so it just gathers dust on my shelf.
