Looks like this will be published in Special Ops #6, according to the latest MMP newsletter.

Good news. I like a good Storm Over Whatever game.

Yes, especially that Storm Over Whatever is good.

Btw, what's the Special Ops?

Slightly sad it won't get a box, but I'm glad to see it coming. Does MMP charge for preorders right away or only when they go to the printer?

I'm really glad it wont get a box. They take up too much space. I'd love it if publishers offered a ziploc-instead-of-box option.

Can you pre-order this issue or wait closer until WBC?

Different strokes, I do love my Nook but I love the fact I have 6+ floor to ceiling shelves full of books. Same feeling with my board game shelves. laugh Love seeing things take up space on a shelf.

Though the ziploc option isnt a bad idea for those who dont have or want to take up a lot of space. Wonder how cost effective it would be for companies to offer both.

MMP has confirmed on their FB page that there will be no pre-order, just a straight purchase option when it comes out.

Good news. I´ve been awaiting this game for years. And, even though I prefer a box, the truth is that games in ziplocks are much cheaper for us, overseas customers, regarding shipping charges...

I've never seen a game from their magazine. How is the quality? Will this be as much a full game as it would have been on its own? Will the cards be included, or are they PnP?

I was excited about Storm Over Normandy before, so I do plan to pick it up this way.

Holman, I asked them the same question on their FB page, they said that it would include die cut cards. We just have to punch them.

Agreed. What Price Glory had cards and although they are a bit thinner than you would get in a boxed game they are absolutely fine.

It seems MMP wants to take us to despair... I´ve been waiting this game for years (no exaggeration)....

    Dude, it's printing. What more can you ask for?

    The Special Ops games I have look frikkin' great, and they're inexpensive. I bought a clamshell box for What Price Glory a couple of years back and have been adding the other Special Ops games into it as I've bought them. Likely could fit eight or ten of them.

    Paper maps but very nice quality.

             S.
