Being a Geek is a sure sign of a sound mind, cause it means you think that life as it is is dull and should be more interesting. Which it is.

Let's say that you'll be happier when you get it (believe me, you'll be!)

When the game was first released I had an opportunity to buy it. I made the choice to let my family get it for me for Christmas and you all see how that turned out. shake

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

I did the same thing. I'll probably pass on it now that it will miss Christmas. I'll pick it up in trade at some point down the road.

Same here. I was amazed to receive an email from Milsims last week saying that my copy of RB was on its way to me - though only I'll believe it when I've got it on the table ready to play since I placed my order with them six months ago!

This news....this news is depressing...although maybe it is a little exacerbated by the fact that I pre-ordered this December of 2012...

Dec 2012? Thats when I pre-ordered....got the game on time....opened it, punched it...tried to play it-realized I was confused by the rules...read the forums...tried to play it again-realized I was confused by other rules...read the forums-tried to play it again, realized I was confused by the rules...read the forums-said I would give it ONE LAST TRY-and was really trying really hard to play it-realized I was confused by the rules and that at this point I also realized I just DIDNT LIKE THE GAME...bagged it, boxed it, and put it on the chopping block...

NO THANKS!!!!

Oh man, sorry to hear that. Here, in Poland, RC is available in every online store with tabletop games. Even toys and printed media retailers have RC on the shelves. I don't really understand why North American edition is so limited. Game is pretty successful, so why is distributor so afraid? Print more!

That's actually a very good question....I don't know how "hot" the sales are-but I see the folks at Amazon.com selling it for 3 times the retail price....I wonder what the relative market size of Poland vs. the US is? I'm not sure but I would bet that the US market is bigger-you'd think they would want to try to please the bigger customer????

On the other hand-maybe the Polish market is so small-that the Polish edition run has already saturated the market-so you see them sit on the shelves....

Still-good question.

PS Is it as bad a game in Polish as it is in English? (;

Uh, I think that Z-Man is too cautious, it looks like their managers don't really believe in bigger success.

Well, Polish market is much smaller than US, that's for sure, but it's Christmas - Portal Games is prepared, they know how to take care about present and prospective customers.

Um, it's not bad at all, however rulebook was re-written for Polish RC reprint.

Dont expect much news today. The UK and USA Distributors will get it in stock today, not the retail shops. I guess it will be one or two days before places start emailing out that they have stock to sell.
