I don't, but let us know when you receive your copy, whether it was Kickstarter or an MMP preorder, and your city (or where the game was shipped to if different).

Very interested to hear opinions on how LW compares to some of the other popular ACW wargames.

Hit Gettysburg this morning. Looks good, but I haven't had a chance to do much more than glance at it.

Just received mine this afternoon in CT.

Completely forgot I gave my work address so pleasantly surprised to see a box on my desk when I came back from lunch.
Of course now its taunting me just sitting there under my desk.

Maybe you can book a conference room for a VERY important meeting and do an unboxing. You can't possibly wait until you get home. Think of how painful that commute will be with the game taunting you from your back seat.

My understanding was that the chits were to be 1" and 5/8”. That's not small in my opinion. To put that in perspective Combat Commander: Europe by GMT uses 5/8” unit counters and smaller size for marker chits.

No sign here in Kansas City. I sent General Buford out with two brigades this afternoon to scout the game's position but so far we have received no report from him.

Nothing in Northern Virginia so far.

I think a CSA raider must have intercepted it.

Nothing in Texas, but we were a little slow to get news of the war's end.

Designer has his. YAY! Regarding chit size - it was discussed long ago that I had argued for 1" counters but that this would have made the cost of the game unpalatable for most gamers. It was agreed and announced here on BGG, CSW and on the Kickstarter site that the Counters themselves were to be 5/8" and the markers 1/2", and that's what they are. The cards are some of the prettiest components I've seen in a game.

Got mine today in New Jersey! Originally an MMP preorder, then Kickstarter. The components are very nice indeed. The counters are quite colorful and attractive, yet not difficult to read. It helps that there's not a boatload of info on them. (And I have crappy vision. I once asked my eye doctor where my eyesight fell on the scale. He snorted and said you don't ask a guy hit by a train how hard he got run over.)

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

New Orleans has been retaken by the CSA, or so I think with my Lee magnet (I wanted a Sherman!) and Davis t-shirt.

I live fifteen minutes away and haven't gotten it. But -- two squads of the 4th Massachusetts Line just showed up so it's still a good day.

To those of you that have gotten yours: how about a snapshot of the map? I know I should be getting mine within a few days, but would like to see how it looks.

I told Jeb Stuart to go recon the position, but he ran off to raid behind the enemy lines, so I'm blind in Wichita.
