This is a company that I had not heard of until recently. They do a large range of games, and in particular, the Lace Wars series caught my eye. The games HUGE and very expensive and I'm not totally sure that I like the counter style, which I seem to remember seeing done before with a Napoleonic series (can't remember who did them - no doubt someone will remind me).

Anyway, its very interesting nonetheless, if you have a big enough space (and wallet!).

I've been tracking them for Tuesday Newsday, but their website is such a trainwreck that it's impossible to tell what their newest / latest game is

A mere $412 for the boxed version.  ;D

$45.00 USD for Print & Play seems pretty high considering how long it would take you actually put it together. Even converting to digital play format would take quite a while.

Yeah, that is a lot of stuff to print and mount - 5 maps for one thing.
