... according to the production update that GMT Games just issued today. The playtest map files have gone to the lead artist, so work on the production map should start next month.

I'm hoping for a July ship date, but there will be a ton of stuff in this box -- over 170 wooden pieces (many embossed), mounted map board, 7 player aid sheets (most of them foldouts), deck of 76 cards, countersheet, rulebook of course, and a separate and very substantial background playbook with tutorials, strategy tips, and historical information on the factions and every event card. So lots of art, production, and assembly to get done between now and 3rd Quarter!

Regards, vfr

[edit: 76 cards]

This. If I'm to get anywhere near as much out of this as I do with Labyrinth then I can't wait.

Nice, that is a lot of stuff. I have to wait until this summer? Dang. But that's good, by then I'll forget I had even ordered and it will be a nice surprise. Mounted Board as well, wow, I was hoping that game would come with a mounted board.

July also would in time for the World Boardgaming Championships. We shall see.

Today I updated the deck master (just my playtest file in Word) with some better photography and entered all the image credits into the Playbook file. Step by step ...

General Bonkers says the War on String may be unwinnable. Detractors worry that his statements will embolden string.

This game and Virgin Queen are the two games that can't get here fast enough IMO.
