Volko - congrats! A wonderful game. Just out of curiosity, how long did it take for FITL to go from idea to publication?

Thanks, Larry!

Hm, if you include Mark's research that went into the design, I'd say more than 40 years.

If I am recalling correctly, Mark and I had our first discussion of a joint design on Vietnam in the first half of 2012, and began joint work on it as a COIN volume at a later WBC (I don't now remember if that was August 2012 or 2013, but I believe the latter), published August 2014.
