Any updates that can be given? I'm not looking for release dates - it will be done when it's done, I know that and will patiently and happily wait for it. I'm just wondering about any kind of updates such as, is it currently being worked on or is it on hold right now while other projects are being finished. Or maybe any chance of a sneak peak of new (work in progress of course) artwork for the gold banner edition? Any info appreciated, it's a great game and I'm really looking forward to the 2nd edition of it!

The developer is giving Breath a workout. He started WWII by NOT declaring Nazi-Soviet pact, invading Denmark and then turtling and waiting for Allies to come to him. Stalin failed to Entente with West, meaning he did not declare war with the West despite no Pact, and so the Germans have been free to burrow while the Western Alliance sitzkrieged and Italy stayed neutral.
However now in late 1940 or so Stalin has gotten his nerve together and declared war while the Western Alliance launched Operation Jupiter and invaded Norway.
So things are heating up!
It is the job of the developer to push extreme player behavior and see if he can "break" the game. so far it is withstanding the assault..but can he?

Hi Geoff,
It's Solitaire WWII ETO, playable in an afternoon. Being developed with Victory Point Games. There is not yet a BGG entry but if you want more information you can find it at the consim board for the game :
http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX/.1dd5078b/0

The goal is to give you the strategic sandbox experience of WWII in a fashion you might experience with a game like Totaler Krieg, but in a much smaller time footprint (is that a metaphor?). We call it a "mini-monster" :-)

We will create an official BGG at the appropriate juncture -- typically when we have some final art to show.

Interesting that VPG will be publishing another solitaire WW2 game!

But you can never have too many of those - sounds good and I look forward to it!

Any updates? Trying to hold off on the current version so as not to get scooped by the Gold Banner version, but my will is faltering...

Development quagmire; not with this game in particular, but with a loss of in-house developer firepower to get more games done.

TBC is still on our radar, but there's a lot of other blips to take care of, too!!
