I have a pre-order in for this one, as well as two Japan themed games currently on pre-order. It has been painful watching the slow climb of these games as MMP tries to expand their line beyond ASL and the Gamers Series (TCS, SCS, OCS, etc).

I've also preordered it.

But I'm not familiar with VASSAL and live in a different timezone (assuming that the majority of wargamers is in fact from the US), so I'm not sure I'll ever get into playing online.

I'm pre-ordering this one and am quite familiar with VASSAL. I have quite specific play times I'm available for--9pm pacific (GMT minus 8 IIRC)until late (midnight, 1 am, around then)--but I'm available most (7 days a week) nights at that time. This is after my daughter goes to sleep.

There are quite a few VASSAL players in Europe--in Britain in particular--though how many are pre-ordering this one, I'm not sure. But there is definitely a strong ATS and Fighting Wings VASSAL contingent.

I've preordered this game, and as someone else
mentioned, I also have preordered the two samurai
ones.

Hopefully Devil's Cauldron will be out before too
long, to keep me busy until these games come out :-)

Just a heads up on VASSAL play...not the best game to play PBeM...very fast and bang-bang...

Via Skype and real time would be great - but not PBeM...

I've preordered this game after reading a session report of "The Lion in Winter" scenario http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/129654

The things that I like the most are:

1.- The easy rules,
2.- The short time lenght of the game (for a wargame)
3.- and the historical leaders that come to play beacause some of them are part of the past of my country (Catalonia).

Preordered.
Vassal: not interested.
I like boardgames because it's providing me a good reason to meet my friends. You may enjoy a DVD of a Rolling Stones show, but it won't replace the magic of the live experience.

Pre-ordered but I am not a big fan of PB(e)M and so I do not care about the VASSAL module. I like to look into the eyes of my opponent while losing the game!

If anyone wants to play via VASSAL and know how the game works, happy to play it. Fun game...

Just geekmail me...in fact, I can do a big teaching session for lots if you want.

You guys have waited long enough...maybe you will love it enough to get more people interested.

I am EST but pretty available...

I preordered. I don't have much interest in playing online though, I like to use them as an excuse for social interaction with friends. I'm a little sad about the slow going, I think I'll see Rock of the Marne before this one.

I've preordered. Interested in the subject material. Plus, this might be another good attempt at enticing the wife into wargames.

Haven't ever played on VASSAL, but have wanted too. Haven't had time to try lately as we are busy getting ready to move. I've wanted to preorder Samurai Lords, too, but haven't done that yet either. blush

I did as well. Same reasons as above - love the time period, the simple rules, the map looks amazing. Keep 'em coming, Adam!!

Pre-ordered, Oh yes! As soon as I knew about it!

In fact I wish I was playing it right now..., or maybe "No Peace Without Spain", or "A Most Dangerous Time", or maybe "Samurai Lords".

These IGS games seem to be right up my street, I just wish I could actually get my hands on one.

Pre-ordered a while back and have been waiting impatiently ever since.

As someone who plays only the simplest of war games, and as an amateur scholar of the Hundred Years War, it seems right up my alley. (The only other true hex-and-counter war game that I own is Men of Iron, which seems rather fitting in this context).

Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about computers and don't even know what VASSAL is.

With a cool VASSAL module available immediately upon release, this might let us hook up for a game online... and will also help to see who the BGG preorder crew are.



Another great offering from the International Games Series - plays quickly, is easy to learn, and best of all: it's fun! Warriors of God sure looks like a winner!


I've preordered every *other* game on the IGS page, and plan on preordering most of the upcoming titles Adam posted recently on another list (I got a chance to preview them at ConquestNW). This one looks good but I'm just not playing this kind of game as much these days.

You can always check the status at MMP's Preorder Page. That page does update in real-time as new orders are placed.

As of this note, Warriors of God has 392 pre-orders. So almost 80% of the way to the required 500 pre-orders necessary to get the game published.

Unfortunately, it is creeping up to 500 very slowly. So if you all - I mean WE all, hehe - order a second copy now...
