No special promos, but there will be authors there, so any bought copy could be signed.

Right, crazy request here but I thought I might try anyway...

Just saw the designer notes on this game and I'm in awe.

I would so dearly love to get the game from the Expo but I can't make it. I would be willing to send a fellow gamer attending the Expo the quoted £50 via paypal to purchase the game for me (+ say £6? for shipping via collect+/myhermes/whoever is cheapest-most convenient for you).

Also, if you're reading this, chances are you're planning on buying the game for yourself... And who knows, there might even be multibuys discounts from the stall (I could be dreaming here!) so we could both take advantage of the situation?

In any case, if a fellow UK gamer reads this and wouldn't mind spending some of his/her time and effort to acquire this wonderful-looking game for me, please give me a shout!

Ta!

note: I checked with some Polish online retailers and I know I could get it for roughly the same price shipped to the UK but a) I'm not so good dealing with Polish websites and b) I thought it might be easier and quicker to get it this way...

We are in touch with an UK distributor, and I hope that the game should be soon available for buying in your favourite shops.

Where do you live Willy? I will be moving to Greater London later this summer, so I may as well bring one copy for you.

cheers!

Hi Jaro,

Thank you for your proposition! I live in Northern Ireland these days (although I'm originally from Laon, on the R2R map, right on Bradley's path!) but I don't get to London much at all. Any game would still have to be shipped to me (internal UK shipping)...

Still pondering whether to order online from Poland (would cost me ~£57) or wait to see if someone bites my Expo offer or still, wait for UK distribution (although that could take many months I take it?).

Hi Willy,

You should be able to locate Laon on some Napoleonic games maps too. From what I remember, Laon was on the retreat route of La Grande Armee in 1815

Once I move in, I may just go to the post office and send one to you, if you don't have one by that time, no worries.

Wow, that's very kind of you Jaro! If I still don't have a copy by the end of the summer, I'll get in touch!

As for Laon, I figured it would appear on wargame maps alright but I'm not a 'true' wargamer so I hadn't come across one, yet! I understand some Napoleonic maps would have the area covered (there was a Battle of Laon too in 1814) but probably WWI game maps as well since the famous Chemin des Dames frontline lies a few km to the south.

Michael, just a suggestion for future shows consider cutting the length of the demos to 20 - 30 mins you missed out on at least 3 purchases because they couldn't demo the game!
