I have never bought a microbadge for a game prior to playing it before, but I am properly excited about this game. I've read all the rules I just need the game!

This is going to eat into my TI3 plays, but it's a sacrifice I'm prepared to make, I just hope my gaming buddies are too! I've never played HIS, but it has been on my wishlist for a while. However the theme for VQ has clinched it.

I am really looking forward to the differnet styles of play for each nation, my group all like a bit of negotiation and backstabbing, plus any game with that and a bit of piracy has to be good. One good thing about this is that my patner will play, whereas she doesn't play TI3 with us.

One question I have is do we know when in April this is due for release? We get a couple of Bank Holidays in the UK during May (that's public holidays to anyone else in the world!) and I would love the opportunity to get it on the table for one or both of those.

Whew! I am almost tired of it for a while. I mean, play(test)ing my third game of it is exhausting. whistle shake

It is definitely worth the wait!

Ed, you couldn't be convinced to upload the card list in the meantime, could you?

Starting next week I'm going to be upgrading my web site to support both HIS and VQ. I'm sure I can find a few goodies to put up there that you guys haven't seen yet. So give it a few weeks -- at which point that site should be online.

I'm anxiously waiting too. It looks like my designer copies are still a few weeks out from arriving!

So having preordered the game in June, and raising my friends' interest in October, my confirming everyone's availability and confirmation in early February for a Sunday 29 April (2012) game may now turn out to have been a little impatient?

At this point, Ed, how much for one of your designer copies? whistle

Since that might be construed as begging favoritism, can I instead settle for the "VQ in 20 Minutes" update on your website for everyone's enjoyment?

Ed, any update on the delivery schedule of VQ ? Possibly for the localized copies via Spielworxx too ?

As far as I know GMT's "shipping in April" estimate should be on track since I expect to receive my first look at it late this month.

However I have no idea how that translates to the Spielworx copies.

Thanks Ed,

Spielworxx still lists it as "expected in March", have contacted Uli about further details.

Are you/GMT/Spielworxx printing VQ in the US ?

Thanks for the responses Ed and who knows your creation may even challenge Wallace's Brass as my favourite game!

When you say you intend to update your website do you mean here?
http://home.comcast.net/~ebeach/index.html

Perhaps you could post here on the geek when you've have updated?

Did anyone receive a update from Spielworxx ? Have sent them an email a few days ago, but no reply yet.

I'm actually kind of surprised that GMT hasn't charged off the P500s yet. The word was that they'd do that late march.

Then again, from what I've seen, once they charge it's like 2 weeks until the box is on your doorstep. It's insanely fast.
