Recently, a game designer deleted one of his games from BGG. He had been working on the design for over 5 years but eventually decided not to pursue publication and deleted all of his work. Several people who were looking forward to the game were disappointed by the decision, but the game was officially dead.

I had worked as a playtester on the game and had all of the playtest files on my computer. I asked the designer if I could use the playtest files for a new PNP game and he graciously agreed to allow me to use the rules and artwork for a new game. So I'm happy to report that I will be continuing his work on the game.

The designer has requested that I change the name of the game and make any rule changes or clarifications that need to be done. He's also requested to not be involved in this project so I've purposely left him and the original game name anonymous in this post. However, those who wish to know more can do so here.
Post about original game

The working name for the reborn project is The Razor's Edge. This will be an open source community driven game. I am going to proofread the rules, edit the artwork (to remove the original game name) and prepare everything for release as quickly as possible.

While I've disappointed to see the original game go, I am excited to see it reborn as a new project. I've been reviewing the game materials I am re-familiarizing myself with the game and I think it will make a very exciting addition to the catalog of PNP games here on BGG.

Subscribe to this thread for future updates and feel free to ask any questions. I'll try to answer as best as I can. Thanks! I hope you're as excited about this as I am!

The files I have are not the most recent that the designer was working with but unfortunately those files have been lost. Thankfully, from what I understand, the files I have are pretty close to the most recent version. Just minor changes and clarification.

I'll be working on proofreading the rulebook and making any changes that are needed. Should just be minor stuff.

Glad you are taking this on Chris. The original designer seems to have a really unusual attitude about all this: nuking all the files yet allowing you to continue it.

Look forward to checking it out.

Yes, until I create a game page, I'll keep the updates here.

Speaking of updates, I just got more recent rules to work from. It doesn't look like anything major, but it's nice to have a few more bugs already worked out.

It's nice that some form of this game will not only live on but actually be born. Man to man combat has been my only interest in wargames since growing up watching Combat in the 60s. Though other m-m games have been produced throughout the years, none really utilized maps that were the same scale. That is why I had such a keen interest in this product.

I look forward to something being released. Thank you Chris.
Jeff

I had to use this weekend to finish up my games for the PNP Santa event. I'll be trying to finish this up over the Christmas break. I hope to have the new files out by New Year's.

Just an update for those following, I got in touch with the developer who was working on this when the project is cancelled. He is helping me get some of the much more recent files so the game will now benefit from the additional playtesting that was done.

Apologies for being late on this. Getting in touch with the developer of the game and getting newer files have delayed me a bit. Also, my daughter had to go to the hospital this week and has been recovering since then which has postponed all game related activities.

Best wishes and a speedy recovery to your daughter. Family first. Everything else second. (even wargames!)

Thanks! She is doing much better today. I suspect another day or two and she'll be back to 100%. The last week has been rough but I think we're almost all better.

From my post on the Yahoo playtest group

I was tasked with the development of this game , last year (late 2013 ).

Life got in the way ... first , my son landed in Duke Childrens Hosptal , NC for 3 months , starting last February 2014 , then , he had surgery in Sept and was in for another month in Sept/Oct 2014 ...

I also had a job change early in 2014 ...

Needless to say , what little work I was able to do , wasn't enough to move the game forward to publication ...

The failure to produce is all mine ....

The game has great potential and I will help in any way I can ....

I'll grab any notes I made and any updated files ....

I have copies of a number of the files dated 2009; version 1.0 of the rules, the cards, various countersheets and maps as well as a couple of versions of a playtest VASSAL module that was done. If you're interested in any of this material, let me know and I can upload it to a dropbox folder for you guys.

Also, I can do a little bit of graphics work and VASSAL/ZunTzu module design and would be willing to help out in those areas if needed.
