Snapped like a dry twig...

Tragic really...

I know the feeling, though...

Best,

Jim

If I answer, would it make any sense to believe me? It kills me whenever I think about how how many projected ship dates have come and gone...

The original production run is currently sitting in a warehouse. The boards were bad and had to be re-done. The current projected date is (sigh) July, and yes, before you ask, July 2007...

July is the date you plan on receiving the new boards? Or the date you plan on putting it out to sell?

If its the latter, what about the possibility to release the game with the current warped boards (with a slight discount) with the possibility of buying the fixed boards once they worked out? It would help ease the cash flow position as well as give the gamers that use plexiglass on top of gameboards the opportunity to build hype about the game.

At any rate, thanks again Bowen for keeping us informed.

(Im obviously not privy to the business decision process so I dont know how viable this is at all. Just my finger-crossed option.)

If the warehouse is by a dark, seedy dock, we have the makings of a B movie whereby I go down there wielding a 2 by 4 late at night....

I'd bring Fagin, Christopher, Haggerty and everyone else that has beaten me b/c obvously they are tougher. Just tell us where, Bowen... We'd be unstoppable, maneuver attacking amongst the crates!

Heck with the way things have been going on the Ladder lately, we'll let Fagin do an assault. As a registered force of nature George will be nigh unstoppable, thereby allowing the rest o' the gang to more easily maneuver attack amongst the crates and pallets.



Edit: Corrected typo.

I predicted a couple of months back that somebody would suggest this, but was starting to wonder when.

We've never even played, Andy!

I'm not as nimble as I used to be. Maybe I should drive the getaway car.

As much as I feel sorry for myself, I feel bad for Bowen. The delay must be harder for him than for us. zombie

Thanks for the info and reply Bowen.

I'm sure you're really disappointed (as we all are) but just want to let you know we're interested and want the best!! I'm sure you doing everything possible to get it all sorted out and shipped.

Cheers,

Tom

Bowen, we hope your day job is keeping the cash flow under control. As to the product, you have already demonstrated your commitment to quality and if we are disappointed at the delay, it must be much more so for you.

Good things are worth the wait and I have no doubt NT will prove the adage once again.

Since the game is fully developed and the product is on the way, might we persuade you to give us a glimpse of what battle you are planning to portray next?

Or would you like to conduct an informal poll for our fantasy list?

Best of luck getting all the pieces to fall into place.

Not harping here, just really bummed that we have now hit July and no price listed yet, no more pictures posted, no firm release date etc. I'll buy the game as soon as its available.
