Got mine too. I quickly noticed the alternative Panzer IV cards with revised armor values. Very cool, that level of response to player feedback. Looking forward to some west front action...

Wooo!

Revised Panzer IVs!?!? What? What? What?
Do they completely replace the ones in the base game and exp I+II?

I'm waiting to get this from a UK retailer. Import tax is disgusting in the UK so I no longer P500.

Can't flipping wait though.

The old Panzer IV cards with the unadjusted armor values are still there, but there are in addition revised armor value cards for them, showing a more realistic, lower set of armor values for the turret armor, on the later model Panzer IVs specifically.

It was a bit of user feedback they received, that the later Panzer IV turrets really didn't get any thicker than the mid war ones, while the original Panzer cards for them showed much higher armor values for the late war models. So now, you can use the revised (and in my opinion, correct) values using the new cards, or use the old ones if you like. Both cards are in the expansion.

Got my copy in two days and I live on the East Coast!!

Maps don't have that annoying center cut anymore. Much easier to deal with.

Great game design makes the complex simple, replayability maximum, and abstraction credible.

It’s not how well you roll that counts but how well the dice suit the game.

John I totally agree with you there. I bought 2 sets of Exp 1 and 2 when they came out and am about to tape one side of each map together to avoid that hassle from now on!

Hey can I ask your opinion about the Exp 3 maps? What do you think of the paper used? Do you have any ideas for keeping them in good condition? Like should they be reinforced with something?

Thanks,
Adam.

What's the lower two-thirds of the box cover supposed to represent?
Looks like old concrete with lichens on it.

Yeah I'm getting some new 3mm sheets tomorrow. I've been using big plastic sleeves lately but they'll no longer do

Imagine MY surprise when I started leafing through the playbook today and got to 7.38.9: my gob has been smacked. It made my day (pun intended) and I was already having a damned fine middle class Canadian day. It should come as no surprise which set I will choose to use.

Out of interest, what was the damage?

Customs is why I no longer P500. I got "got" 4 times in a row so cancelled my P500s.

Ugh. Same as I get. I'll wait for it to be in stock at Gameslore.
