I asked my FLGS if they could get a copy of Codeword Cromwell and after about a month of emailing Fifth Column Games with no response, they gave up. I have just bought it online. Digging around it looks like FCGs website is being squatted by someone selling shoes, and Dan Hodges hasn't logged in to here since Dec 2015. Has he abandonned the hobby?
Down for me as well - looks like the domain name expired on 18 July.
Problem is Fifth Column Games is pretty much a one-man band. Dan Hodges - the designer - hasn't logged onto BGG for about a year. I think he spends most of his time focussing on politics. He currently writes for the Mail on Sunday newspaper over here and tweets on a regular basis.
yeah, we know who he is. I'm busy with stuff - we're all busy - but we still have time for hobbies - and this one is draining, in more ways than one. It's all about choices. I hope he finds the time to do more.
