Well, am I supposed to enjoy this news ? Or have the feeling that I'm not so lucky with my preorders ? I remember that the designer of "To the last man", one of the other games I was expecting to be released wrote recently :
"[the game] has been delayed until 2008 at the very earliest. Although the game is ready to be published, Compass Games needs to design, develop, and playtest other card games in their lineup in order to allow for a sufficiently large print run. This will keep the card production costs down to an acceptable level.
I'm not so sure that all the people who preordered this one at GMT will automatically switch to Compass. Wait and see.
Renaud had probably good reasons to do so, and not only the geographical proximity. Anyway, it's not my business. Don't know the terms of the deal, but GMT's reaction seems as classy as their games.
