Will we see a 10th Anniversary edition next year, in English, on kickstarter, with new designed boards, and player mats as add-ons, in a bigger box?

I'm afraid not.

It's already taking me too long to sell out the 1936 copies of the game. To give you an idea: around 1700 copies have been actually sold, 150 are in the stores ready to be sold and another 100 are chez moi waiting to be sent to a store (they don't add up to 1936 because I'm rounding up).

I think the anniversary event next year will actually be the end of the lifecycle of the game. A few months ago I was targeting this year, but that was wishful thinking, unfortunately. Now I'm hoping for next year.

But I do appreciate the interest.

Arturo

1700 copies is a lot. And that in spanish. I think this could sell good in english as well. By the time this game came out there was no kickstarter, but there is now. Then the game was a bit hard for me to find, living in another country, but with kickstarter you can sell the game all over the world. I think a "anniversary edition" could sell, especially if all the expansions is in the box.

One thing I've learned in all these years is how hard it is to be a publisher. I don't intend to ever self-publish again. Kickstarter or no kickstarter.

Maybe so. There is a Kickstarter now for a game called Last Front. And it seems like a kickstarter could have looked like, if there was one for 1936: Guerra Civil.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/plowgames/last-front-th...

Right now, just 67 backers. So, not easy to sell a lot of games it seems.

I regret that the game was not available in English. I would hope that you could find a Print on Demand provider both Stateside and in Europe. This way, buyers could just order and the copy is made and sent, with you just getting a cut.

Un saludo Arturo. Y feliz año nuevo. Soy el afortunado poseedor de una copia de tu fantástico juego. Te animo en tu duro trabajo de poder vender finalmente todas las copias del juego. A mí me gusta mucho y me bajo todas las cartas nuevas que vas añadiendo. Te felicito por este gran juego del que tiene un gran trabajo de documentación detrás y que ayuda a aprender más de este terrible conflicto que asoló nuestro país hace ya 80 años.
